LIVE Fantasy Chat NOW with Angus, Dobber, Goldman and Ma on right now, and Lemon joining later. Follow it, ask questions here. Also – A list of “must follow” Twitter accounts today – and they get full credit for any trades reported here (in case I mistakenly don’t give credit – it’s from one of these guys)
I nailed just three of my seven bold predictions (below). Mueller went, Chicago did nothing between the pipes and Vokoun stays…
Ryan Whitney to Edmonton for Lubomir Visnovsky – analysis to come…
Analysis coming on Stempniak to Phoenix, Corvo for Pothier/Osala, MacArthur to Atlanta, Modin to Los Angeles.
I won’t analyze Milan Jurcina back to Washington, nor Andrew Alberts to Vancouver
Clarke MacArthur to Atlanta for two draft picks.
Dan Hamhuis is stayin in Nashville.
Lee Stempniak has been dealt.
Sheldon Souray is in hospital with a hand infection, scuttling a trade of him today. He may be out for the season.
Raffi Torres to Buffalo for a second-round pick and Nathan Paetsch, according to The Fourth Period
Anaheim trades Vesa Toskala to Calgary for Curtis McElhinney. So now former Sharks Kipper and Toskala are 1-2 in CGY.
Washington acquires Eric Belanger for a second rounder. Analysis to come…
The Kings acquire Jeff Halpern from Tampa Bay. Elliott Friedman says it is for Teddy Purcell and a 3rd. If so, then fantasy analysis definitely on the way.
Vancouver has shipped Mat Schneider to Phoenix. Fantasy analysis to come…
Small deals from Kevin Allen: Yan Stastny goes to Vancouver for Pierre-Cedric Labrie and Red Wings get Jordan Owens from NYR for Kris Newbury.
Hot rumor from Bob McKenzie – Porter and Mueller for Wolski. CONFIRMED. Analysis up.
Washington has traded a late pick for Carolina for Chris Clar- I mean Scott Walker (same thing!). I will have fantasy analysis up on this.
Edmonton has claimed Ryan Jones off of waivers – brilliant move and I will have a fantasy analysis up on this one.
Aaron Ward has been traded to Anaheim for Justin Pogge and a fourth round pick. Zero fantasy impact there.
The Leafs have brilliantly dumped Martin Skoula off on New Jersey for a fifth round pick. I won’t break down the fantasy impact of this one, mostly because I’m still sane, but I will say this – Jacques Lemaire really loved him in Minnesota. That’s Brian Burke taking advantage of another GM dealing from the heart – we all can relate to that in our fantasy leagues.
Derek Morris has been shipped to Phoenix. This frees up some cap space in Boston for a forward.
My predictions for today:
1. Chicago does nothing between the pipes.
2. Kaberle is indeed moved, but not until after 2:30
