Fate Settles The Goalie Controversy In Philly

According to CBS Sportsline, "Flyers goalie Antero Niittymaki could miss up to two months because of a hip injury sustained during practice Tuesday."

I guess that answers the question of who the number one goalie is in Philadelphia - it's the guy who gave up five goals in 30 minutes to the Caps tonight (and by "the Caps" I mean the Caps minus Semin, Zubrus, Pothier, Clark, Eminger...).

Do you think Booby Clarke has called San Jose, Buffalo or Anaheim yet?

Hey Japers-
any early predictions on moves the caps will make come trading time?

You can be sure the rumor mills will strat the Kolzig rumors come the deadline, but actual players who WILL be on the bubble/tradeable are:
Actually anyone other than AO and Green could be had for the right price BUT most have minimal value

Zednik will be gone. Bradley and Fata will be cut before the deadline. Muir too, lord willing. Clymer could be decent trade bait, as could Heward potentially as a depth defenseman. And if anyone needs a tough guy who makes $1m, I know where they can find one come March.

Kolzig will stay put, and most of the younger guys are pretty much untouchable - you don't rebuild and then trade your Emingers and Morrisonns and Fleischmanns and Fehrs right before they're about to become serviceable NHLers.
