Murray to Leafs a Done Deal?

Before I start to speculate I want to let everyone know that this rumor is 100% legitimate!

The Dominator to Touch Down in Ottawa on Tuesday

The Team 1200 is reporting that the Ottawa Senators will hold a press conference on Tuesday July 6th to make the worst kept secret in the NHL official.

Keanen era has begun

Many sources out of Boston have said that captain Joe Thornton is upset with management and he wants out. The front runners are believed to be the Los Angeles and Florida Panthers…

But with doom and gloom hanging over the league like a bad stench, there may be light at the end of a narrowing tunnel.

Let's get the party started!

Could the Leafs be done? Maybe. Can the Leafs win? I doubt it

Great work by JFJ to resign Klee, Nieuwendyk, Belfour and Roberts. I say why not give these guys one last shot at it.

Sources question to everyone?

I am just wondering if anyone has any good hockey info websites?

I am just a hockey junky like most of you! Help.
