Interesting discussion at Light The Lamp over trade possibilities, including interest in Spezza. However, most intriguing for me is the tidbit contributed by Hitch Rules concerning a possible Toronto deal. The original source of that item is actually today’s Toronto Sun, which you can view here.
I am never one to put a lot of stock in media reports of impending trades, but my ear is closer to the tracks on this one. The Sun has a way of being more in the know than most, since the nerve center is there, and for the reasons stated over at LTL, this deal makes all kinds of sense from both team’s perspectives.
Fascinating, if true. More to follow . . .
A native of the SF Bay Area, my first exposure to hockey was the SF/Oakland/California Golden Seals, including Charlie Finley and the white skates. Fast forward to the late 1980's when Gretzky and the Kings came up to the Bay Area for an exhibition game at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, for which we had glass seats. I was at the first San Jose Sharks game in the Cow Palace, and followed them for their first few pathetic years, before moving to Columbus in 1994. I attended the first pro-NHL rally downtown, and have been a season ticket holder since Day 1, wife & I are active in the Jacket Backers, and son is an avid fan as well. I cover the Jackets for Inside Hockey, and contribute regularly to a variety of hockey sites. I maintain contact with the Jackets organization, and like to dig into stories, bringing a fresh, and sometimes irreverent perspective to hockey.
