Halpy Back in the SE?

According to Yahoo!'s Ross McKeon, a deal is pending that will see the Stars send a package of players to Tampa Bay in exchange for Brad Richards - among them Jeff Halpern and backup goalie Mike Smith. The same source is saying the Canadiens have landed Marian Hossa in another packaged deal that could see, among others, Michael Ryder heading to Atlanta.

Keep in mind that no one else is confirming this story so far so like everything else you hear on trade deadline day, take it with a grain of salt. If it is true, however...the Southeast Division just got a new look.

Stay tuned. Looks like we're just getting started...

I saw that too and I have to say if it is true...Tampa did really well...They shipped off prospal for a young dman and a pick, they moved richards' HUGE contract...resigned a great defensemen, got a great checking line center and finally got a goalie...damn, I am jealous....well done Feaster

That the phrase "well done Feaster" is applicable if this is true makes me think it's bunk.

I hope Smith, Jokinen & Halpern enjoy Tampa, and that Tampa treats them right. Good players and good guys, all the way around. :)
