Cornwall ON – Dontcha love texting? I know Twitter is in vogue, but it’s so….public. My sources have told me that there is a lot of buzz to Carey Price being shipped to Dean Lombardi with a certain Russian. A LA goalie would be coming to the Great White North in the deal, but that both teams are waiting to see where a few more chips fall.
The San Jose Sharks are playing hardball or payback depending on your philosophy with the Chicago Black Hawks by putting in an offer on Black Hawk D Man Niklas Hjalmarsson who’s a RFA. If Chicago doesn’t match they get a 1st and 3rd round draft pick in return. My take is let him go as the 4 year $14M offer is a bit pricey unless you think Niklas is going to be a definite top 4 D Man.
Matching the contract means more cap woes for the Stanley Cup Winning Black Hawks.
