Team(s) Interested: Montreal Canadiens/Chicago Blackhawks- A Rumor I heard around from a few sources was the possibility of a Blackhawks/Canadiens trade. The deal could possibly send Andrei Kostitsyn to Chicago for Sean O’Donell and “Rusty” Olesz. I don’t think this trade will go down, mostly because Kostitsyn is a much better forward the Olesz. O’Donell could replace Jaroslav Spacek while he is out for the next 2-3 weeks, and Olesz could fit on the fourth line while Cole moves up and Weber moves back. But even though the timing of the injuries to Michael Cammaleri and Spacek would make sense for this trade, the 2 players would be useless once the players return to action, while Kostitsyn is playing second or third line duty with the Blackhawks.



About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
