San Jose GM Doug Wilson strikes again. TSN reports the Sharks have acquired RW Bill Guerin from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for the 1st round draft pick the Sharks acquired from the New Jersey Devils as part of the Vladimir Malakhov trade and a Player To Be Named Later.  The report states the player is not on San Jose’s roster.  San Jose has now traded both 1st round draft picks they had in 2007 (they sent their own pick to the Montreal Canadiens in the Craig Rivet deal).  More on the PTBNL as it becomes available.

With Guerin going to San Jose (along with Rivet) and Peter Forsberg going to Nashville, does this expand the pressure on Anaheim GM Brian Burke to keep up with the Sharks and Predators?  Burke had Todd Bertuzzi when he was GM in Vancouver, so does he contact Jacques Martin?

The Phoenix Coyotes have traded RW Georges Laraque to the Pittsburgh Penguins for LW Daniel Carcillo and a draft pick.
