Darcy on the phone all night and in the end it just turns out to be a bad April fools joke.

Urgh. I saw this tweet and was hoping we could move someone to CBJ:

Darren Dreger@DarrenDreger 4m
CBJ will be a buyer. Columbus would be willing to part with 1 of their 3 first rnd draft picks for a scoring forward. #tradecentre

You know, I had a whole elaborate setup, complete with fake tweets and everything--Pominville for Desharnais and some minnow--but I controlled myself, dammit!

Send them #29 for the #1 pick they got in the Nash deal. Rangers looking like they'll miss the playoffs while the Jackets may actually make it.

How great would that be after the high hopes for NYR after getting Nash.

That undervalues Pominville.

You joke, but if Columbus is looking to add a scoring winger I can see them wanting to take a chance on Stafford, even if it involves us retaining ~$1 million or so in salary.

That reminds me. After the last game I ripped my ticket in half and threw it in the toilet at the F'NC. Then proceeded to give it a golden shower.

So we have a mod making Aprils Fools threads? I had hoped this board was above that kind of garbage, but I guess not.

I suppose it's not as bad as the typical so-and-so has died stories that are always created each year.

Good one Chz.

That said, having the trade deadline be right after April 1 was a bad idea. I don't know why it wasn't last week, anyway, but I don't know how funny these types of tweets are for the real players.

Blame Chz.

Can we as a society just cancel this retarded tradition already? This is the day where every unfunny person you know says something horrible/ridiculous just to get you to say "What?" so that they can say "April Fools!"

"Did you hear about the explosion at the mall?"
"What?"
"...April Fools!!!"

Hilarious. Every year. :rolleyes:

This statement from Pominville seems like a joke so I'll put it here.
How about not caring about what the other teams roster looks like and how many games they have won and just focus on winning?

In a shocking turn of events, a horde of Teddy Bears attacked during a hockey game in Calgary. This shocking video shows the vicious attack that one survivor described as "a wall of hate filled plush bears raining havoc down upon the masses"
