    Good thing the NLL site news article told us to check back often for all the breaking news!

    The Trade Deadline for the 2009 National Lacrosse League season arrived earlier this afternoon at 3pm Eastern. A couple of deals were made at the wire, and will be announced as soon as the normal processing of the paperwork is completed. Check back to for updates on today's trade activity.

    EDMONTON RUSH: Have traded Steve Dietrich to the Toronto Rock in exchange for their second round selection in the 2009 Entry Draft.

    This is a realistic trade - Dietrich will be a more reliable back up than Attwood, though I'm still not sure Dietrich has all that much to offer. The thought of losing Conn before he had a meaningful chance to hit his stride, and a whole whack of draft picks, also made me queasy. For once the worst case scenario hasn't come to pass!

    great so we got a back up just as old as our starter.

    given its a deep draft, how about keep the pick and draft a goalie?

    you had the best young goalie in the draft last year and cut him in tryouts. didn't get squat for him.

    Forget the guy they drafted. Before the expansion draft, they had a more promising young goalie already on their roster. With some clever abuse of loopholes, I think they could have kept him, Watson, and 13 runners.

    No matter, both youngsters are gone, and the goalie of the future still needs to be found.

    That said, there are two ex MVPs/goalie-of-the-years in Toronto now. That'll get us through this year and maybe next. Hell, Watson was huge on Saturday - If he has his confidence back and gets a fair effort from the D for the rest of the season, it might not even matter who the backup is.

    And no huge loss on the second round draft pick. The guy Kloepfer drafted last year hasn't even cracked a game day roster on a 3-7 team.

    here's to hoping he won't be around to make another draft pick, though I ain't holding my breath

    I didn't even disagree with picking Fleming at the time. Given that the rest of the lineup wasn't winning, I would have at least like to see this guy get a couple of games worth of chance to prove himself.

    Then again, I have to hope coach knows best.....especially since I haven't even seen any practices to form a first-hand opinion.
