We’re getting into silly season now. We’re 34 days away from the deadline, and with the Hawks having their “bye week” in the middle of it soon, we know the chatter is going to heat up. There have been names already being tossed around, except almost all of them would be a complete waste of time. So let’s toss out a few players that aren’t going to do anything for anyone before we get to ones that could actually help.
Jarome Iginla – Old, slow, not good anymore, and would be too heartbreaking if it didn’t work.
Patrick Sharp – Will be out for the season if he encounters a stiff breeze, also stationary, and still small matter that most of the dressing room still hates his guts.
Shane Doan – Seriously?
All right, now that’s over, we can get on to something a little more substantial.
