5:34 - Duthie is back reminding us that there's less than a half hour of coverage left. So tired... so... so tired...
5:38 - Bob McKenzie: "... there's every reason to believe Chris Pronger will be traded in the off-season..."
5:39 - Darren Dreger: "... we didn't talk much about Martin St.Louis and what might happen there (in the off-season)... the Colorado Avalanche didn't do much in terms of dropping salary... lots of speculation they will need to do that this summer..."
5:40 - Darryl Sutter is on the line with James Duthie and we have an actual picture of Darryl Sutter and not a picture of a telephone. This show keeps getting better and better. "I think Jay (Feaster) would give me strong orders to add a big centre to try and win a Stanley Cup"
"... my brother Duane had been with him in Florida...he works for us now... I took his advice on it... to be honest Mike (Keenan) didn't know we were talking about it until last night" Sort of a telling statement about how things work in Calgary if there was ever any speculation about who runs the show there.
Kaitlin from the University of Regina e-mails:
"Hey Jay I'm just wondering if you and O'Toole have played 'knit a touque' yet?"
No but O'Toole plays "shovel the driveway" every time his wife tells him to. Every ... time...
Jeff Sehl from Caledon, ON (home of Sportscentre Morning Loop Producer "Tim") wonders:
"Have you and Dan ever had an Anchorman-like brawl with members of other news shows?"
The answer is yes and unfortunately for Jay Engram at "Daily Planet" it did not end well.
5:58 - This thing is almost over... Duthie is back ... "Just a couple minutes left... "
Erik Cole speaks to the media... says the trade back to Carolina: "Was a little surprising... I'm a little disappointed things didn't work out in Edmonton... should be a pretty easy transition back to Carolina..."
Either he's a brilliant actor, or he's genuinely sad about this. Weird. I kind of assumed he would be very happy about this.
