Hockey In the News Today...Finally

This guy got traded...

The Eastern Conference leading Ottawa Senators aqcuired that guy, Mike Commodore and F Cory Stillman from the Hurricanes for F Patrick Eaves and D Joe Corvo. The Hurricanes are currently in 10th place in the east, three points out the final playoff spot and Stillman has 56 points and Commodore has the sweetest get-up in human history. But apparently the Senators need more help and Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said, "We're very happy to address one of our needs, making our defense more mobile and adding a player like Joe that can play on the power play. Also, we view Patrick as a real character player, a real good young player that can fit into our style of play."

Stillman had to waive his no-trade clause. Wow, do I wanna play for the best team in the league and defending conference champions in one of the best hockey cities around or do I want to play in North Carolina...Raliegh, North Carolina...for a 10th place team? Tough choice. I know his heart was really in Carolina, along with the tobacco, bootleggers, and racists. I hope he can get over it by bangin' hockey-crazy broads in Canada, hunting giant moose, and sippin out of the Cup come June.

Ohh yeah...This guy got his neck sliced open too.
