Trade Deadline Bonanza!!: Hour 3
11:30: It's a new window, it's a new hour, it's a new day....and I'm feelin' good. Ba dum, ba dum, ba da ba ba da dum.....
11:33: Uh-oh, Billy Jaffe has removed his coat. It's about to get stupid up in here!!
11:35: E.J. Hradek is reporting that the Flames will give up Matthew Lombardi and a 1st rounder as part of any Jokinen deal.
11:41: The Ducks have sent Steve Montador to the Bruins for Peteri Nokelainen. Montador was a name that I know some Hawks fans wanted. He's a very steady d-man, Boston has done well here.
11:45: The Jokinen deal is done, and Prust is going with Lombardi and a 1st rounder, we assume to beat the shit out of ASU frat boys.
11:54: Bruce Garrioch is making noise, from Puck Daddy, that Steven Reinprecht could be coming to Chicago. Decent, I guess. 50%+ on faceoffs the past two seasons, not so this year. I think we can do better.
11:59: I just want everyone to know I'm missing the all 90's Last Letter Game on Q101 for this. If I miss out on the Soup Dragons' "Divine Thing", you're all gonna pay. Oh, you'll pay.
12:03 PM: So far, the only announcement today that has me at all excited is Nine Inch Nails at Northerly Island in May.
12:06: Apparently, Ovechkin was hurt in practice today. Check out Japers for info.
12:13: Andy Strickland on Hockeybuzz.com, one of the few non-nutcases on there, is reporting that Dominic Moore will be the one to land here. This is probably the move that makes the most sense. Though not a star, a very solid #3 center, which after bolland proving to be a passable #2, would work. Above par on faceoffs, good in his own end. Let's hope this happens.
12:16: On NHL Live now, Moore coming to Chicago. Haven't heard for what yet...
12:26: Mark Recchi had better get used to rotaries and racism, as he's headed to Boston. Insert cliche about veteran, playoff experience.
12:39: Moving to a new window for hour 4
