Tverdovskii, rights to Jack Johnson (and his Disco Dad) to Kings for Tim Gleason and Eric Belanger

And of course I had to find out about this RIGHT BEFORE I HAVE TO GO TO WORK.

(82 WPM typing speed, don’t fail me now….)

How do I feel? Uhh….fook meh, I just woke up from a pre-work nap, so I’m not sure HOW to feel right now.

Check that–I do know how to feel. Relieved…kinda. I mean, at least the Jack Johnson saga is over, and if the kid winds up becoming a discipline problem in the NHL then JimR looks like a genius. Otherwise, there’s going to be some unhappy people talking maybes and might-have-beens.

    Ah, that explains the link to Щелчок (which has already taught me new subtleties), which I greatly appreciate. I’ve had so few opportunities to practice, that I lose 3/4 of what I learn every summer, so anything that is simultaneously Russian and interesting to me is of tremendous help.

  5. [...] 1) The rights to U of M defenseman Jack Johnson were traded to the LA Kings along with Oleg Tverdovsky in exchange for Eric Belanger and Tim Gleason. Many Canes fans seemed relieved that the drama surrounding Johnson has lifted, but also wonder if he’ll turn out to be a top NHL defenseman that they traded away or if he’ll turn into an Avery-like defenseman (my comparison) then they’ll have gotten out of an even greater mess.
