Shero said in the PG article yesterday that he's done trading.

I would have lied if I were him and said that he is still persuing. Just to drive prices up for other teams and keep them on their toes.

To be 100% accurate, he said, "I think we've made the trades we're going to make." Pretty much closes the door, but leaves it cracked open, just in case.

If he's not still looking at ways to make this team better up until the deadline, then he isn't doing his job.

If there were no cap issues on the horizon man... Vanek sure would look good on Crosbys wing opposite Kunitz :) he is rumored to be on the block...

Kunitz -Crosby-Vanek
Neal-Malkin- Iginla
Morrow-Sutter-Cooke

Looking at those three lines (and the resulting compensating that we'd have to do on defense due the cap) we might have 8-5 games every night but... Ouch... That sure would be fun to watch.

I think every team has interest in him. We'll see...


With our depth at the blueline i doubt he wil choose us, i am sure he wants to land with a team he might have a shot at playing on. Or playing a bigger roll with a AHL team

I'm sure some of us have seen this and Depaoli isn't exactly a great source to use, but if this is true....wow!

freep and others suggesting wings interested Jaromir! maybe not now in the am.
Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger 16m Detroit was believed to be a strong contender for Jagr last night. Asking price too much? Bruins now a frontrunner. #tradecentre

Zigomanis is on Toronto's AHL team.

That's all you really need to know.

He wasn't that bad. I don't get it. He has decent numbers in a 4th line role and great numbers in the AHL. Add in his face off domination and he's a decent role player. There's something else to the story. I've seen worse players, that bring less, have a regular spot in thr NHL.

Yeah, he wasn't a great 4th line center and great in the faceoff dot, he was a great faceoff guy so he was acceptable hidden on the 4th.

That's the problem: you're looking at numbers. Watch his game and you'll see a slow-footed player whose claim to fame is purely his faceoffs. If he was worth an NHL roster spot, he would be in the NHL, not in the minor league system of perennial bottom feeder team in Toronto (even though they're much better this season).

Yes, the players who stand at 6'-5", weight 240 lbs, and have absolutely zero hockey sense or skill.

I guess you could do the "penalty kill-Crosby-switcharoo" for Zigomanis on every shift? As soon as he wins it, he sprints to the bench in favor of an actual player.
