Nostradamus is all over it

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae if she is checking in.

Well, the NHL's Nostradamus (aka Eklund) is all over the Mats Sundin issue in Toronto - over the last 24 hours it has been

Mats is going to be traded - he has given Cliff Fletcher a list of teams he will go to

Mats' participation in tonight's game will say it all - if he plays, he stays; if he sits, he goes.

Mats is saying that he doesn't want to go, so he might not get traded - but Eklund has people telling him it is all a ploy to get more out of GMs who want to acquire him.

Eklund has all the bases covered - so he can't be wrong. He's a 1-900 line from being one of those donkeys who sells NFL picks - "Guaranteed winners" or you don't pay - with an astounding 85% win total; you should know how that scam works.

Thanks for nothing Eklund - you're a donkey.

Whether or not Sundin plays tonight has nothing to do with his future with the organization - if he has ok'd a trade, he isn't going to sit out and let that game against the Sabres be his last home game of the season for Leaf Nation.

Today there has been speculation that Bryan McCabe could be moved - for those of you who snickered at the post that stated the Leafs have some options they can explore at the deadline; let's talk on Tuesday night. Someone is going, count on it.

Speaking of the 1-900 line - I don't charge for picks, I just put them out there for your consideration. But I will say I've got three winners for you tonight - guaranteed, or my name isn't Eklund...I mean "Pogue Mahone".

Montreal over Columbus - the Jackets had a big win here on Thursday night against the Tards, but with Montreal's power play, the Jackets will have a tough time staying in this game. Lay $100 on the Habs - $200.

Buffalo over NY Rangers - sorry Bruins' fans (all 12 of you), the Sabres aren't going to drop this one tonight - they are in the midst of a 10-2-2 run and are playing much better than the Rangers right now (still likely reeling from blowing a 5-0 lead to the Habs). Lay $100 on Buffalo - $120.

Detroit over Vancouver - the Red Wings ended a long losing streak, expect them to start a winning streak; Vancouver can't keep up with the Wings offensively. Lay $150 on the Wings are even money...the pick of the night.

That's it for today gang - I'll be checking in tomorrow for Los Angeles, California. That's right, yours truly gets five days out of the cold and snow of this winter hinterland - just blocks away from Dodger Stadium!

Hazel, here's hoping things are groovy in your world - keep the faith, Fletcher will get something done.

I'm Out!
