D-Day Coverage

Hype hype hype! Where is Ryan Smyth going? Where is Jagr going?
They are not going anywhere!
Eklund is giving Bertuzzi to Anaheim an e4 rating, like it's almost done. I say Bert is NOT going to the Ducks. If he does, I'll put Hockeybuzz on my sidebar links forever! (uh-oh)

Glen Sather, the cigar-smoking badass, has made it known that Jaromir Jagr is available, but only for an offer he can't refuse. So, any team that wants to poison their dressing room with a gutless puke, AND piss away the future of their franchise, please let Glen know!

The Rangers have just dealt D Aaron Ward to the Bruins.
**UPDATE*** Ward in exchange for Paul Mara.

From Spectors: The Coyotes have re-signed Kevyn Adams to a 1-year contract.

9:58 am
Saw this at Canucks Hockey Blog, who is live-blogging the event as well:
-Marc Chouinard has cleared waivers. He is THAT bad folks.
-Michael Leighton was claimed by the Habs. OOO! That should help in Huet's absence! NOT!
-Niko Kapanen went to the Phoenix Coyotes.
-The Blue Jackets scquired Brian Boucher.
-Denis Hamel was signed by the Philadelphia Flyers. A nice pick by Philly.
-The Thrashers signed Jason Krog.

9:51 am
-The Penguins have traded speedy Dominic Moore to the Wild for a 3rd round pick.
-George Laracque has waived his no-trade clause and has been traded to the Penguins for F Dan Carcillo and an 8th round pick.
Bring on the boring trades! There should be alot of those coming up.

No, I am not on the ball today at all with the trades. Yesterday, yes, today, nope!
Bill Guerin is a good acquisition by the Sharks. They need a shakeup to get out of their current mediocrity. Guerin is having a better year than last season, scoring 47 points in 61 games so far. Guerin brings even more grit to San Jose, and playoff experince as well: 48 points in 96 career playoff games, and a Stanley Cup with the Devils in 1995.
Is Guerin to replace Cheechoo on the Thornton line?

The Sabres have finally traded Marty Biron. The 29 year-old was shipped to Philadelphia for an undisclosed draft pick. Biron has been waiting for this moment for along time, as he could not handle being a backup goalie. I'm sure he's a serious upgrade from Esche and Niittymaki. I guess one of those 2 goalies could be shipped out today. Probably Esche, as many rumors have speculated.
The Sabres then picked up Ty Conklin from the Blue Jackets to replace the departed Biron. I don't know about Conklin's puck handling skills...
