Hawks Trying To Make Deal With Ottawa: - Brophy
Mike Brophy dropped a subtle bomb on Senators fans just before 6:30 tonight when he said he has talked to people in the Chicago Blackhawks organization who told him that they are trying to make a deal with Ottawa which would include Nik Khabibulin and ... Cam Barker, who he claims has "fallen out of favour" with the team (Barker is currently in the minors due to salary cap issues with Khabibulin).
There have been rumours involving these very players to Ottawa before but that's the first time I've heard a legitimate reporter go on the record about it.
Depending on Martin Gerber's performance tonight, this idea might take on more significance in the coming weeks.
