Luongo trade signals rebuild in Denmark

One of the best teams in the EURO league since its inception three seasons ago looks like it’s changing course. The Copenhagen Tridents, under the direction of GM Dylan Callow, has flirted with the Cup every year but has never been able to latch onto it.  They had 108 points in Season 1 to finish…

Weber traded again

It’s either that nobody wants Shea Weber, or everybody wants him. Our guess is the latter. For the second time in 35 days, the perennial all-star defenseman has been traded. Copenhagen becomes the third Ahearne Division team Weber has played for this season. The Tridents wanted the 28-year-old badly, sending promising Kevin Shattenkirk, 24, and…

Oslo trades Datsyuk, Weber to London

A day earlier, the Eagles acquired James Van Riemsdyk and Marcus Johansson from Moscow for Dustin Brown. That means…

Trade brings key piece to Moscow puzzle

Moscow and Paris are in a horse race for the President’s Trophy and at the first quarter pole, it’s Spartak by a nose. A trade made Sunday by Moscow GM Michael Banker has a make-or-break feel to it. Dustin Brown, a proven leader with an NHL Stanley Cup on his resume, has made his way…

Leaving Moscow and heading to Sweden are homegrown Marcus Johansson and American James Van Riemsdyk. Van Riemsdyk had 5 goals and 8 assists for Spartak, while Johansson had 6 goals and 5 assists. Brown…

Niemi traded to Gothenberg

The EURO League saw a few more changes in the last three days as teams continued to tweak their rosters. Nothing too earth-shattering; a lesser free agent here, a former cast-off there, and then suddenly – out of the azur – Milan’s Antti Niemi is in Gothenberg! Move the rocking chair, Marty Brodeur, there’s a…
