Just news links

Graham really did deserve his own post. At 6'3" and 217 lbs* he is big enough that I might squish him should I try to fit in other news around him. Thus, newslinks get their own, albeit much less sexy, post.

Matthew Wuest- Mooseheads GM in no mood to beg at Q draft
Willy Palov - Eagles will move pics for scoring
T.J. Colello - Eagles not afraid to trade first round pick
Telegraph Journal - Central Scouting's final list of QMJHL Prospects
Neil Hodge - What will cats do in trades?
Neil Hodge - Twin brothers won't let QMJHL separate them. More wonder twins? The Moose do not take orders from players anymore. I guess they won't be coming here.
Peter Assaff - Titan GM comfortable heading into Saturday's QMJHL draft.

Yes, I am still having an affair with the Sea Dogs:

Former Sea Dog and QMJHL smrt guy Payton Liske won the award for Outstanding Acheivement in the Field of Excellence... or something like that.

Simon Despres showed up at the combine about a week early and they wrote a story about it. Read it and then tell me - how can you not love Simon? Effort alone should count for at least 100 bonus points. I would suggest you give him cookies but it is getting hot and he needs to look fit for the draft, so give him a popsicle or something.

Bonus info EDIT:
Trade Rumours:
From the Times and Transcript

The Lewiston MAINEiacs have made three deals that will be announced when the league trade period opens on Friday morning.

They're sending defenceman Garrett Clarke to the Halifax Mooseheads and goaltender Peter Delmas to the Quebec Remparts. They're also acquiring forward Stephane Fournier from the Acadie-Bathurst Titan.

Some other mid-season trades will be finalized this week.

The Saint John Sea Dogs will acquire the rights to 20-year-old forwards Mike Hoffman from the Drummondville Voltigeurs and Nicholas Petersen from the Shawinigan Cataractes.

The Chicoutimi Sagueneens are sending goaltender Francois Levesque to the Prince Edward Island Rocket. The Rimouski Oceanic are shipping forward Philippe Cornet to the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.

Rumour has the Montreal Juniors dealing forward Luke Adam to the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.

To throw in my own personal note - I like the Delmas to the Remparts deal. The boy needs a change of pace and St. Patrick and crew should be able to get the best out of him. I found it weird that no one was going after him at Christmas trade period last season. Just because he did not have the best season last year does not mean that the boy doesn't have skillz.

*D'oh. 117lbs is girl sized, 217 lbs is MAN sized. RAWR.
