TSN and the Ottawa Sun broke out yesterday that the Sens have a deal in place with the Sharks but need a third team to come in. Reports say the third team is the Montreal Canadiens but I’ve heard differently. Everything is all around the place but at least we can comfort in the fact that Dany Heatley may, in the end, be traded. But why a three-way? If you include a third team, everything gets mixed up. Some GM’s (cough Muckler cough) don’t have the audacity to keep track of things. But if that is what it will take to get us rid of Heatley, well then, it has to be done.
Everyone’s saying the Canadiens are third third team. According to a close source of mine, the third team could also be the Dallas Stars, who are looking at acquiring Jonathan Cheechoo. I was told the possible trade could be this…
To SJ: Dany Heatley, Cody Bass, Tobias Stephan, DAL 2nd round pick in 2010
To DAL: Jonathan Cheechoo
To OTT: Ryan Clowe, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Jamie McGinn
I like that three-way better than the rejected offer of Cheechoo, Erhoff, and McGinn. But the interesting problem is, will Bryan Murray like it?
