    Stan sends a shout-out to all FFers. Or maybe that’s a tweetout.

  2. Dave Morris says:

    PS y’all can check out my projected Hawks d-man shopping list right here:

    “Blackhawks: Dialing for D-Men?”

    @Lou–Andy Sutton is on that list. He is a very large man.

  3. John says:

    Sens nab Matt Cullen for Picard and a 2nd round pick. Those Sens are getting frisky.

  4. Dave Morris says:

    PPS Vokoun has said he will waive NTC depending on situation and team interested.

  5. Dave Morris says:

    Craig Custance at Sporting News says Hawks are talking trade:

  6. Dave Morris says:

    Eddie O is on NHL Live! right now and he gives substance to the Meszaros rumor.

  7. John says:

    Anybody but the Wiz. Please God.

  8. Dave Morris says:

    @John> I’m wondering if the ‘d-man from Tampa’ Eddie mentioned is Kurtis Foster and not Meszaros.

    Makes more sense…Foster is a pending UFA ($600K salary), big guy (6’5″/220) who plays both D and wing, and is PP specialist.

  9. John says:

    Good call, Dave.

  10. Patrick says:

    Dave and John – good stuff! Keep it coming…

  11. Dave Morris says:

    Bob McKenzie chimes in…or should I say tweets in…

    “TSNBobMcKenzie> Hearing about a lot of chatter between Minnesota and Chicago. Interesting to see if they get something done before 3 pm eastern.”

    My HI “Dialing for D-Men” list has Shane Hnidy as a possible.

  12. Dave Morris says:

    BTW from NHL Blackhawks>Q said after practice that Niemi starts tomorrow and callup from Rockford coming to play on 4th line.

  13. Lou says:

    Eager is probably not ready to go and that could be coupled with a trade????

  14. josh says:

    Kim Johnsson and Nick Leddy for Barker? That’s a hell of a deal, unless my memory of Johnsson completely fails me. He’s exactly what we’ve been looking for: stay-at-home, veteran defenseman with decent size. Plus this Leddy kid was just taken last year, seems like a nice prospect to me.

  15. Lou says:

    This does sound good

  16. Lou says:

    Add Brad May to the list of ENFORCERS looking for work… Glad we got someone to combat him.

    Now find a way to get us Booth and Boris for Steeg and Buff…

  17. Long-time Lurker says:

    Sassone citing “multiple sources” that Barker to the Wild is a deal.

  18. Dave Morris says:

    Josh> I was surprised by the fact Hawks got Johnsson…excellent move. And Leddy, a 1st rounder to boot.

    PLUS 3 million off next year’s payroll.

    Score 10/10 for StanBow.
