NHL Trade Deadline Chat Tonight- Talk Deals & Hockey Rumours

Tonight is the second of our NHL Insider Chats. The chat will take place at 9pm Est.(6 for those on the west coast)

Tonight we are very excited to be joined by the Globe and Mail’s Vancouver Canucks’ beat writer Matt Sekeres. Matthew was born in Montreal and raised in Kanata just steps from the Corel Centre. In 2001, he graduated with honours from Carleton University, where he was editor-in-chief of the independent student newspaper, with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communications. At 25, Matthew found himself travelling on the most competitive sports beat in the country: the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Globe’s Vancouver-based sports reporter, Sekeres covers the NHL’s Canucks, the CFL’s Lions and the 2010 Vancouver-Whistler Olympics. Born in Montreal and raised in Ottawa, Sekeres has covered the Beijing Olympics, three Super Bowls, seven Grey Cups, an NBA Finals, and the NHL playoffs.

The last session with Bob McKenzie was amazing. Please signup for a free account with talkshoe.com before hand so that when you call in you can ask Matt questions directly as opposed to through the webchat.

Once you have created an account (and a pin) at 9pm, login to the website, and call Phone Number: (724) 444-7444
Call ID: 40996. You will then be able to participate.

See you at 9pm Est.

TSM, what’s your take on the asking price by Moore (or more accurately, by his agent) of $3 mill?

I think 3yrs at $2 mill per is closer to value, he’s clearly having a good season but the guy was a journeyman before relegated to 3rd/4th line minutes. I know Wilson didn’t show him much appreciation for his efforts but he is likely true in saying he’s getting inflated ice team due to our situation.

I like him, but not at $3 mill. I know we could go on and compare other players in this bracket, but I think Burke is right in not budging here and look for the trade instead.

The very fact Moore is being discussed tells what a sorry ass team we have.I can hardly wait for the war of words once Burke does next to nothing at the deadline

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
