11:15 a.m. (HM) --*Still no trades to report, but we did get an update on a trade that happened yesterday. (Hey, remember yesterday, with all its activity? Sigh.) New Ranger Ryane Clowe had a few words to say on his way out the door in San Jose:
Wow! Crazy couple of days! Want to say thank you to the Sharks organization and all the wonderful fans in SJ for treating me so great the last 8 years. It was a blast and I will miss it. Extremely excited to be joining the NY Rangers. Getting an opportunity to play in New York and at MSG is special."Here's hoping we get a few more tweets like this today, because it means more player movement.
11:00 a.m. (HM) - It's been an uneventful morning thus far, but fret not, because the bottom of the last hour yielded a couple of explosive, big-time quotes from two GMs that project to be active today.
First, Dave Nonis of the Toronto Maple Leafs, who told TSN the following: "Right now it's very quiet."
And then, we got this huge update from Phoenix Coyotes' GM Don Maloney: "We are doing a lot of listening right now."
So don't fret, you guys. Putting two and two together here, we can surmise that it's quiet because everybody's listening so hard. The future is bright.
