Anyone hear about this rumored Blockbuster deal?!!!!!

3 way deal involving Hawks, Sens and Kings.

Sens move Gerber and Mezaros to Kings

Kings move Anze Kopitar to Hawks

Hawks send Habby and either Biscuit or Barker to Sens.

Intial thoughts of this rumor are good. I would prefer to move Barker though. Kopitar is a pure scorer and a very nice addition to the top 6.

I read the same rumor and would love it, especially if Barker were the one to go. Barker makes too many lazy passes and geets beat way too often.

Kopitar would be a great addition, plus he's only 20.

I read it but it's rumor but it sounded like it was going to happen this week...Started Barker for Neil then Khabby,Barker+ for Neil, Vermette, Gerber and LA was needed as a third party with Kopitar,Frolov,Ensberg and O'Sullivan trown around also the Sens were tossing in Mezaros...Anyway the NHL regected whatever the end result of the trade was going to be or is that a rumor too?It turned out to be a lie from an unknown blogger.

Maybe a trade will happen in some form. I can't see Kopitar being dealt.It would be great if the Hawks ended up with him. I'm not sure i'd trade Barker for Neil straight up.I also can't see the Hawks dealing Seabrook either..
