What?
I'm saying that following the rules is to be expected.

It's the people think that the rules should only apply in certain situations, who have a beef.

So is nobody going to talk about the Eklund rumor?

"Talked to quite a few sources today who are talking about an off the record deal...best way to describe it..."A player once thought would NEVER be moved looks to be quietly in play...."

another called it a "trade that would be heard worldwide...""

I also don't understand the issue. Best to just let it go I feel...it's not looking like a productive area of discussion right now...

I'm confused with what you are saying then. I don't see any disconnect with GMs taking issue with another GM who pounces on a guy they sign in the waiver process. Yes, it's within the rules, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't still be annoyed with that GM and squeeze him harder in my next dealings.

Maybe the Kings will finally trade that package for Malkin only this time for Ovy.

And I don't understand why you would have a problem with a GM following the rules.
It's either a productive rule or it isn't.

All he has to do is go back after deadline day and be like "See! *Insert random 4th liner* got traded! I told you guys!"

I think it will be Ovy for Giroux just so Philly can create the most hated team in Penguins' fan history. Kidding!

I really hate giving credence to Eklund, but he's not as full of poop as everyone likes to think. Rumors are rumors. Just because they don't happen doesn't mean these rumors weren't actually in discussions.

AO is definitely the first player that comes to mind here. I don't think there are many players that the entire hockey world would view as a player that would never get traded. I would look at Chicago, but they obviously have NO reason to make any major trades. So what names are ones everyone would be totally shocked by?

Ovechkin
Crosby
Malkin
Sedin(either one)
Stamkos
Fleury
Lunqvist

I don't like throwing a Ranger in there, but with their track record you never know. These are some players who come to mind that nobody(regardless of what team they follow) would ever think gets traded.

I believe Joe Morrow would go to Dallas as part of the deal for Brendan Morrow.

Though, take that with a grain of salt (for now), because Dreger is saying he "believes" it's Morrow for Morrow.

Until it's final, it's not final.
