"I think it's hilarious," said Bieksa. "It's funny how you guys keep throwing my name out there and I'm still standing here. I don't think I can comment on every rumour that's out there, but certainly with his one, I'm still here today and that's all I can say. Rumours are out there and I've had my fair share. I've learned to deal with it and it doesn't bother me."

Kevin Bieksa missed practice because of pneumonia. He has lost 8 pounds but will play Wednesday. Manny Malhotra also missed practice today with the flu bug going around. As for the Bieksa trade rumors: I just don't get it. Why does it make sense to trade him now? Sami Salo is nowhere near returning and I have liked Bieksa's play for several games now. (Yeah yeah, I have converted.). But trade Bieksa and get no D-man in return at this point in the season makes no sense. Especially not for depth purposes. If Salo makes a return in January or February then a cap issue arises and we can talk about it. Until then, this is horse shit.
