Oilers + News & Rumors **UPDATED**

First off, I would like to congratulate the Oilers on being swept by Calgary Flames... This was the first time a Battle of Alberta season series has been swept by either team. The Oilers suffered yet another big blow (because you haven't suffered enough already) as Sheldon Souray broke his hand in a fight last night with Jarome Iginla. This lowers Souray's chances of being traded.

Jonas Hiller - In other news, the Anaheim Ducks have re-signed Goaltender Jonas Hiller to a 4 year deal earning him 4.5 million per season / 18 million total. This obviously means Anaheim has moved on from Giggy as the starting goaltender. They will have him as a 6 million dollar backup unless somehow they can move his salary.

Leafs - Leafs GM Brian Burke is holding a press conference at 11:30 AM eastern on leafs TV, it will likely be a trade for J.S Giguere from Anaheim. It may not be the only move done today by the Leafs says Darren Dreger of TSN on his twitter " Could be multi-deal, multi-player. Big makeover...if all comes together for Toronto. My blackberry may blow!"


Update - This from Darren Dreger "Something enormous is about to go down. Working on it."

Update # 2 - From Darren Dreger " Phaneuf to the Leafs"

Update # 3 - It seems as leafs will get Giggy, Phaneuf and Sjostrom 

Update # 4 - Stajan and White are involved.

To Flames: Stajan, White, Hagman, Mayers

To Leafs: Sjostrom, Phaneuf, Keith Aullie (AHL Defenseman)

Update # 5 - Another deal in next 30 minutes says Brian Burke.

Update # 6 - Marlies Forwards and Sjostrom will fill in vacant Forward spots on Leafs.  

Update # 7 - Burke says sit tight we should be back soon. 

Update # 8 - It looks like Finger and Toskala for Giguere and a 1st round pick.

Update # 9 - It may be Exelby instead of Finger or Blake.

Update #10 - The Ducks want to send a player, Leafs want 1st.

Update # 11 - Darren Dreger says Toskala and Blake for Giggy done deal.
As always, all comments are welcome.

Kotalik done as a Ranger? - According to Larry Brooks of the NY Post Ales Kotalik has been told he will be traded and has left the team.

Update from Larry Brooks "Rangers tentaive deal to move Kotalik fell through due to complications, per NYR."

  1. Congratulations??? Smart ass Devils fan. ;)

    This not only lowers Souray's chance at being moved, it eliminates it. That's twice Iggy has been the cause of a Souray injury.

  3. No problem. I'm working on a better one for you.

    Great reporting Todd. What a trade for the Leafs. I'd say they won that trade. What about you?
