      I don't know what to think on this one. LIKE SEEING TRADES THO -
      GOOD WORK BOYS.

      STORM:
      Have put themselves in a postion where they too, now have to rely on
      Mario LEMIEUX's back in order to acquire 3rd period points. Let's
      hope for STORM the no-name defencemen returns to form and still
      quarter backs the potent Powerplay with LEMIEUX, STRAKA and
      KOVALEV...Just being on the ice should get him points. If TARNSTROM
      returns to form - LOOK OUT FHL - if not you just handed the HITMEN
      the PRESIDENTS cup. HOPE LEETCH IS BACK SOON....

      Kariya is a good pick up and a big name forward the STORM needed,
      since most of his second string forwards are over achieving. Who
      would of thought it would be a lil club out of Sandford that would
      re-unite KARIYA and SELANNE.

      Does Storm have more trades up his belt?....the deadline should be
      interesting.


      WILD:
      Great Pick up for the WILD....So what did he really lose for
      LIDSTROM (NORRIS TROPHY WINNER) ...Not Much...He acquired TARNSTROM
      in waiver and never played him...out injured....and acquired KARIYA
      for RICHARDS and CHISTOV. SO really he traded CHISTOV, RICHARDS,
      2nd waiver Pick for LIDSTROM and a 2nd round DRAFT pick. Looks a
      little lopsided this way.

      WIld have put themselves in a position where:
      1. They may squeek back into the playoffs.
      2. They have Insurance against PRONGERS possible retirement.
      3. If PRONGER is back. Built a Power house with PRONGER,LIDSTROM
      and MORRIS anchoring the Defence for next year with an extra pick in
      next years draft.

      Might have to start trading his defensive talent to acquire some
      quality forwards or first and second period points will faulter.

      The race for that final spot should be exciting for many clubs....

      PERSONALLY:
      See more upside bennefit to WILD's needs - Not sold on
      TARNSTROM......Good trade tho boys........You both met some needs.


      What a difference a day makes.
