Now THAT might be the trigger to all of this discussion. Remember it was only a few weeks ago that Yzerman (with help from the rest of the Canadian hockey brass) selected a team without St. Louis. Could it be that Marty's feelings were hurt so bad that he made such a request? Hmmmm.

I would be disappointed if Marty did that. Never struck me as a red ass.

Unless he really Boucher's executioner.

Things that make you go hmm. Either way, there's a great many directions this could take over the next 6 hours - 10 days. Stay tuned, right?

If the rumour ends up being true, I'm hoping a young defenseman comes back our way too or Kreider.

Dealing Marty for a rental UFA lower liner like Callahan is just horrible, especially with the increasing logjam at forward. You've got to think he gets a way better deal than that considering he'd make or break a cup run for multiple seriously loaded contenders the way he's playing right now. And he can wait and choose the best deal up to the deadline, no need to pull the trigger now. It's not like Marty's been tanking it this whole time. I just think this is totally retarded. I can see SFY trading him if he thinks it makes this team better, he bought out Vinny so ANYTHING is possible, but it's gotta be way better than that.

Lower liner? I know Callahan has had a rough season but the guy is still a top 6 forward on 90% of NHL teams and does possess the jam that is needed among our skill forwards and has proven playoff success. With all that said if were going to unload a top 6 for Callahan I'd go with Purcell and you'd think the Rangers would as well. Both are younger and in their prime years and both could really use a change of scenery.

Still think this is just an insane rumor which has no backing.

The guy's only flirted with 30 goals once, and barely cracked 50 points that year. He's not top 6 by our standards and certainly not worth $6.5 million.
