Another Big Trade: Kate Leaves Lance for Lindros

First, it was Ken Griffey Jr. going to the White Sox. Then it was Manny Ramirez making a move to the Dodgers. Now Thursday’s Titanic Trade Trifecta is complete with news of another blockbuster deal - Kate Hudson has parted ways with Lance Armstrong in exchange for Eric Lindros.

SPORTS CRACKLE POP tips us off to news (via Perez Hilton) of the actress saying sayonara to the cyclist and skating into the arms of the ex-NHL player. Kate is back in familiar grounds reuniting with former boyfriend Eric, much like Kyle Farnsworth returning to the Tigers.

So, in what exotic location have the renewed happy couple been spotted at? New York? Miami? Paris?

Not quite. According to HOLLYWOOD GRIND:

“Kate and Eric have been holed up at her parent’s house (in) Muskoka, Canada. She went there immediately after she and Lance ended things. Eric’s been a great support for her.”

At least Elisha Cuthbert & Dion Phaneuf ran off together to Hawaii.

But who are we to poo-poo the pleasantries Muskoka has to offer? With “2,500 square miles of towering pines, sparkling lakes and rivers, endless recreational activities, diversified culture and genuine friendly service,” the region just 90 minutes north of Toronto promises to “have you under its spell on your first visit!

Can’t wait to get going! Think Kate & Eric will still be there by the time we arrive?

Probably not. As BITTEN & BOUND informs us:

“Kate and Eric are JUST friends. Their families have known each other for 15 - 20 years and they both have cottages around the corner from each other. Eric is seeing somebody else, and him and Kate have always been close friends for years and years. Nothing is going on, other than them bumping into each other up North. They didn’t go up together, nor are staying at each other’s places.”

OK, forget the trip to Muskoka, then. Saves us a lot of gas, anyway.
