A recap of tonight’s Conference III action with help from the geniuses at SportsYapper:

Minnesota 4, Phoenix 3: Wild fans are riding high, but maybe they should tune in before making generalizations. Hockey’s quite a game. Ryan Suter scored with less than a minute to go in regulation. Koivu got the OT winner.

Calgary 4, Colorado 3: A lot going on there in Calgary tonight with Jarome Iginla avoiding a Conference III team out of fear a healthy scratch ahead of a probable trade as far away from Conference III as possible to Boston Pittsburgh. Anyway, the Avs yappers continue to be the hidden gold of the yapping community. Highlights tonight: a wordy breakdown of the Sacco system, a history of “they’re coaches,” and an intriguing trade proposal. And yes, it is a shame what happen to Lokomotiv, especially because it ruined the Avs defense. And made people forget Salei’s name.

A recap of tonight’s Conference III action with help from the geniuses at SportsYapper:

Winnipeg 4, Carolina 1: Four different scorers had goals for the Jets in the battle to be the least mediocre team in the Southeast Division.

Edmonton 3, St. Louis 0: Tell ya what, they were doing some high-quality drinking in the Gateway City, getting shut out by a team that played Monday night, who just outworked the hometown Blues, apparently. And this yap had no attribution, but tonight, no, we didn’t see those nasty assists.

Chicago 2, Calgary 0: Now, of course, this is interesting, because Jarome Iginla may be headed to Chicago — Chicago fans are talking trade, which may be for Iggy or for “this Calgary guy they’ve been talking about lately.Lanny McDonald? Terry Crisp? Leland Irving? Despite the nice game, yes, people still have goalie concerns.

You don’t think Conference III is the NHL’s baddest and best? Let’s go to an expert, a man who knows something about putting together an A-Team.

Back home to cheer the Blackhawks to victory tonight. I like hockey ’cause it’s rough, it’s tough and it’s on ice. Grrrrrr.

Trade Central Time Zone: Setting The Table

by J.R.

The National Hockey League’s trade deadline is just a week and a day away and the market is already open, as evidenced by the Swap of Morrows.

We at III Communication have been spending hours inside our war room, crunching numbers and contacting our Top Level Sources to suss what moves Conference III teams will be making before 2 p.m. Central April 3.

Who wants whom? Who has whoms to give? Just what is a hockey trade and will anyone make a baseball trade or a lunch-for-dessert trade (put your hand down, Feaster)?

Print this out — this is the only guide you’ll need for all your trade rumors and rumours.

A recap of tonight’s Conference III action with help from the geniuses at SportsYapper:

Wild 7, Dallas 4: Zach Parise didn’t get a hat trick but he did have two goals and an assist in this weirdo game with high levels of Conference III-ness. The Stars had too many turnovers FYI.

Kings 5, Blackhawks 4: The defending champs got three in the third past Corey Crawford to secure the comeback at the United Center. Goalie controversy in Chicago? Are they just missing Hossa? Is it lack of puck control? One thing’s for sure: the ‘Hawks still win at the yapper with the busiest yapper in all the yapp.

Nashville 3, Edmonton 2: Redemption, thy name is Sergei. In his first game against Edmonton since his doofus line change, Sergei Kostitsyn opened the scoring for the Preds and had one nasty assist. And this Oilers’ fan forgot the Predators have made the playoffs like a zillion-minus ones times in the past zillion years (estimated) and thus, ya know, aren’t the worst team in the whole world.
