Report: Habs Order Equipment For Hossa

http://www.cyberpresse.ca/article/20080220/CPSPORTS0101/80220288/6488/CPACTUALITES

Thanks to Karl for the lead on this story at 2:40 a.m.

The article linked above is in french, so for you non-speakers/readers, here's the resume.

Mathias Brunet of La Presse reports that the Montreal Canadiens have gone ahead and processed an order to have equipment fitted to Marian Hossa's measurments fabricated. The order does NOT necessarily mean a deal is made and pending announcement; it simply means that SHOULD the ongoing talks between Gainey and Waddell sprout into a deal for Hossa, his equipment (in Habs colours) will be awaiting his arrival.

There was a similar situation in the past, 2 years ago to be exact, as the Canadiens had pre-ordered the development of equipment for Chicago Blackhawks members Nikolai Khabibulin and (then) Adrian Aucoin, as a deal was nearly made to acquire them in exchange for Jose Theodore, Mike Ribeiro and Pierre Dagenais. The deal was apparently accepted by both parties, but fell through when Khabibulin suffered a serious knee injury before it was made official. Doesn't it make you wonder where we'd be today had that deal gone through?

However, it is important to note that even though the order does NOT indicate an imminent trade, it DOES indicate that talks are very serious right now. The names rumoured to be sent to Atlanta at the moment are Michael Ryder, Mark Streit (both pending UFA's, like Hossa) and draft picks.

OK so im NOT completely sure about the mechanical process of trades but i think it is very likely after hearing this that the GMs have agreed to put this trade on hold and have left it subject to change....why?...tonight the Habs face Pittsburgh, a loss by the Habs and Pitts is tied for first and suddenly we'll be sitting in 5th. On the other hand Atlanta is playing Carolina...both members of the Southeast division, which is up for grabs by any of the five teams, this game could have a huge impact on Atlanta's playoff run. Both teams would definitely want to have full lineups for these big games and not have to lose men due to travel time. Which is why the trade may be put on hold.

It is now 11am on Thursday Feb 21st, the earliest I would expect this trade to happen is late tonight once both games are completed, but I believe it is more likely to happen Friday morning

's hope they don't give away Higgins. I still beleive he's our future captain (otherwise it's Komi). I've been hearing Ryder ans Dtreit for Hossa. I've also been hearing Ryder for Tanguay. Can't wait till Feb 26th.

RDS now reports that the gloves ordered were for Marcel Hossa of the Rangers, as the Rangers were in town on Tuesday. However, initially reported was that 'red and white equipment' was ordered for Hossa.

It is being said that the mistake is possible as the Rangers and the Habs do wear the same colours, and the hockey company Warrior says that the gloves were in fact for Marcel Hossa.

There is however a difference between glove colours, the Habs gloves have more blue on them and rangers gloves have more red on them.
