Following some of the names that have been moved these past few days, trade deadline day could shape up to be a day with a lot of little deals. However, names like Miikka Kiprusoff, Roberto Luongo, Mark Streit, and Jason Pominville could make the day interesting. Here is an update on the most notable names that have changed teams so far with the likely fantasy implications. Of course, these evaluations are fluid given that the teams involved may not quite be done in stockpiling their rosters for a Stanley Cup run. At any rate, check back for further fantasy analysis as more deals will be made. Continue reading "Trade Deadline Eve"

There are several reports across twitter currently that the Calgary Flames have given the Toronto Maple Leafs permission to speak with their current veteran netminder, Miikka Kiprusoff.

Roberto Luongo was disappointed that he wasn't traded before the NHL's trade deadline, and he is blaming it on his contract.
Sabres trade captain Jason Pominville to Wild, will receive rookie forward Johan Larsson and rookie goalie Matt Hackett in return.Pominville, is a member of my fantasy hockey team. I expect the eight-year NHL veteran, and six-time 20-goal scorer to be a great fit in Minnesota.

Chime in on all this and more here today!
The Calgary Flames are in full-on rebuilding mode.

Neither Cundari nor Berra have seen...
It seems like such a cliché to start something about Jason Pominville with Game 5 of the Ottawa series in the 2006 playoffs. But really where else can something about Jason Pominville begin? There are very few people in Buffalo who can’t vividly recall Pominville skating around Daniel Alfredsson, Jay McKee flying out of the penalty box, and Rick Jeanneret bellowing his now...
There are reports saying that Pominville has been traded to Minnesota for left winger Johan Larsson, goaltender Matt Hackett and a 2nd round pick.
