Deadline Day!

WHEN CANUCK FANS WOKE UP THIS MORNING…A MATT FOR MATT TRADE WAS NOT EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAD IN MIND…
YET…THAT’S WHAT THEY GOT…
MATT COOKE TO WASHINGTON FOR MATT PETTINGER…
IT IS NO REAL SURPRISE COOKE WAS MOVED…
HE WILL BECOME AN UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENT THIS SUMMER…AND THE CANUCKS HAD NOT MADE ANY ATTEMPT TO RE-SIGN HIM…
WHAT SHOULD CONCERN VANCOUVER FANS ARE THE TRADES MADE BY THE OTHER TEAMS IN THE WEST…
TO START WITH…DALLAS LANDED BRAD RICHARDS FROM TAMPA BAY…
SAN JOSE PULLED OFF A DEAL TO GET BRIAN CAMPBELL OUT OF BUFFALO…
DETROIT AQUIRED BRAD STUART FROM L.A…
AND COLORADO SENT A FIRST ROUND DRAFT TO COLUMBUS FOR ADAM FOOTE…
4 OF THE BIG 5 TRADES TODAY SAW TEAMS IN THE WESTERN CONFERENCE ADDING IMPACT PLAYERS…
SO WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE THE CANUCKS???
TO START WITH…MAKING THE PLAYOFFS JUST GOT A LITTLE HARDER…
THE AVALANCHE ARE NOT GOING AWAY…
ALONG WITH FOOTE…THEY ALSO ADDED DEFENCEMAN RUSLAN SALEI…
YESTERDAY THE AV’S SIGNED PETER FORSBERG…WHO WILL JOIN THE TEAM TOMORROW HERE IN VANCOUVER…
FOR THE RECORD FORSBERG IS NOT EXPECTED TO PLAY…
IT’S THE FIRST OF 4 MEETINGS BETWEEN THESE TWO TEAMS…
THAT SERIES COULD VERY WELL DECIDE WHICH OF THESE TWO TEAMS GOES TO THE DANCE…
AS FOR GOING DEEP INTO THE PLAYOFFS…WELL…LET’S BE HONEST …THAT JUST GOT A WHOLE LOT HARDER…
DALLAS…SAN JOSE AND DETROIT ARE ALL BETTER…THAN THEY WERE JUST 24 HOURS AGO…
ANAHEIM MADE A COUPLE OF MINOR MOVES…BUT THE DUCKS DID NOT HAVE TO SWING FOR THE FENCES…
IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS THEY’VE ADDED BOTH SCOTT NIEDERMAYER AND TEEMU SELANNE…
ADD IT UP…AND THE SECOND GUESSING IN THIS CITY HAS ALREADY BEGUN…
GENERAL MANAGER DAVE NONIS ADMITTS HE HAD A NUMBER OF OFFERS ON THE TABLE…BUT FOR WHATEVER REASON HE WAS UNABLE TO PULL OFF A MAJOR DEAL…
AS A RESULT…THE FATE OF THE SEASON IS NOW IN THE HANDS OF THE PLAYERS…
BUT DO NOT KID YOURSELF…THE PRESSURE IS STILL VERY MUCH ON NONIS…
