Deals and Rumors

SJ Gets: Toronto's 1st (#13) and 2nd Round picks this year and a 4th rounder next year.

TOR Gets: Vesa Toskala (G) and Mark Bell (C)

BoNY Exclusive: Insider's Perspective
Mike Chen, Battle of California:
I'm not sure how this will play out since Wilson's
basically said he sees it as a 1-10 type thing before a huge dropoff.
They may package that #1 for something else or move up, so I'll wait
for it to happen before contributing my thoughts on the deal.

The more I think about it, though, the more I like it. It frees up
enough cap space to have some flexibility with free agents, Bell was a
healthy scratch/4th liner at this point with emotional problems from
his DUI, and they got a lot of commodities to try and create a deal.
Just gotta hope Wilson turns it into something further.

Other Rumors: Reportedly Edmonton is speaking to Gomez about either a sign and trade or his exclusive negotiang rights. Philadelphia was rumored to be involved but has said that they haven't asked about it. Fernandez and Bryzgalov talks are heating up.

Expect Atlanta to make a move today.
