Let Us All Weep for Vesa

Cross-Posted to Scarlett Ice


Don't make me go, mommy! I promise I'll be good!


The San Jose Sharks have traded Vesa Toskala and forward Mark Bell to Toronto for three draft picks, including a first rounder in this year's draft:

The Sharks also receive a second-round pick in this year's draft and a 2009 fourth-round pick.

Toronto's pick was 13th overall.--Via Sportsnet.ca

Weeping. Openly. In my office.

It's gotta suck for Toskala... right when the SJ goalie situation solidifies, he gets to fight for a spot with Raycroft, ala the last three seasons..

AW DAMN!!! I just used words that no person should ever hear (including me, since I think I made them up). I love Vesa... that and I wanted him to come to Phoenix next year. :P Ok, so it's just my selfishness that didn't want him traded... sue me.

Jeez, I really slept late today! I was just going to start writing my draft day speculations (late yes, but I've been having computer problems), which would have included a prediction of trading for a higher draft pick.

Damn, I knew it would be Vesa though I had hope that I would be wrong and Nabby would waive that no trade clause.

I've never been all that fond of Nabby. Phooey.

McPhizzle said...

Jocelynn - Completely agree with you on the Vesa vs. Nabby issue.

*humph*

k.le said...

whoa, ladies...take it easy...i for one am not displeased :)

k.le said...

and back off, sherry...this isn't your fight...haha

McPhizzle said...

k.le - of course you're not displeased, you just got a great goaltender! :)

Rinslet said...

Sucks on Raycroft.

PPP said...

Yeah! Back off Sherry! Or I'll send Redden a kilo of Colombia's finest next May ;)

Sherry said...

Finest coffee? I'm sure he would appreciate that :)

And here I thought Toronto was sold on Raycroft! ;-)

Sharks fans, rumors around here - or panic I guess I should say - is that you're clearing salary space for Drury.

Please just make this all end!

Jocelynn said...

Yeah, I keep seeing all that stuff about Drury. I'll believe it when I see it.

If Marleau goes, I really will cry!

Jordi said...

K.LE PLEASE TREAT MY TOSKERS RIGHT. IF YOU DONT I WILL RIP OUT YOUR THROAT.

Marleau better not go... It's not fair.

Steph said...

Jordi, I just read that "treat my Toasters right" and wondered how we went from talking about Vesa to Bryz.

And K.Le, good I'm glad it's not only me who likes it (or is starting to like it), but poor Raycroft. They can talk all they want about goalie tandems and whatnot...but you know he already got his chance and mucked it up.

k.le said...

steph: i can't feel bad for raycroft. after our season ended, they asked him how he felt and he really didn't sound all that sorry, and even a little bit smug. so too bad. forget the tandem, i hope he's our new expensive backup. we show no pity here! haha...

jordi: i'll do my best, no need to threaten my esophagus....*runs*
