VISHNEVSKI IS ATLANTA - BOUND

Just reported on TSN. Some of the speculations came true this afternoon as the Thrashers have just traded for exiled Duck defenceman Vitaly Vishnevski. The Ducks get F Karl Stewart and a second round pick in the 2007 Entry Draft in return.
Stewart is a 23 year old who has only played 13 games at the NHL level, recording 1 point.
I suppose this is closure for Earl Sleek isn't it? Expect a eulogy at the Battle of California soon.

Well, yup. I've been mourning this thing for weeks, so I guess closure is for the best.

Karl Stewart, eh? Sounds kind of made up.

Here's hoping the 2nd round pick is good!

Ugh. OK, I posted something on it, but I'll save the mushy stuff for this weekend.

I'll do a farewell piece for all the departing Ducks then.

Just don't call it "Flocking Off! I plan on using that title when I get my in depth interview with Mrs. Pronger.

Holy Dumbo's! I just noticed the ears on Vishnevski - no wonder it was hard to get around him! He looks like an old yellow cab coming down the road with it's doors open!

And you haven't even heard him being interviewed! He's hopeless!

But Vish was my second-favorite (behind the godman known as Sammy Pahlsson), he was a team-first kind of guy who really knew what protecting a blueline meant.

Grrr, I knew I should have gotten a PAHLSSON jersey (except it was a gift, what could I do?).

Oh, and "Flocking Off"? All yours.

Those ears are almost Prince Charles-like in stature
