What a Difference a Day Makes

With all the recent trade talk surrounding Alex Tanguay most thought he would not play another shift for the Calgary Flames after Tuesday.  Well not only is that wrong, but he got a promotion.  At practice Tanguay was on the Flames top line with Jarome Iginla and Daymond Langkow. 

Mike Keenan removed Kristian Huselius from the top line after his hot play had cooled in recent games.

The Flames decided to not make any moves at the deadline and feel they can contend with the rest of the West.  The only issue now is signing the many free agents that will be getting a raise in the offseason.

Bobby Orr must have given some good advice! Congrats!

Well today is the big day and the moves are already happening.  So far the East has done a few minor deals and lost some big names and the West has continued to improve, sounds like the NBA does it not?  So far we have Brad Richards going to the Stars while Brian Campbell is now a member of the San Jose Sharks.  In a surprise move the Habs unloaded Huet to the Washington Capitals for only a second round draft pick.

Selfish Sundin

Toronto Maple Leaf captain Mats Sundin has decided to not waive his no trade clause and remain a Leaf.  There is a good chance the Leafs will lose Mats in the offseason and will  gain nothing losing him. 

He could have let the Leafs deal him and then re-sign with them, thus improving the team without losing anything, aside from a few more games this year improving their draft pick. 

This is in my opinion selfish as he is doing what is best for him, not the team he says he cares so much about.  If he were a true team player he would consider a move, but this once again shows why he has never taken the Leafs anywhere.

Ok well not with the maple leafs, but he has signed on to be an analyst with TSN according to their website.  He will give commentary on NHL games as well as help out with their trade deadline special on Feb 26, 2008. 

His first appearance will be during the Leafs-Sabres game tomorrow, February 13th.

MLSE fired Ferguson this past month after he was the GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs.   He had been their GM for five years.

It will be interesting to see what he has to say about the Leafs, and any moves they will make before the deadline.
