Canucks scouts at Atlanta/Montreal game

I’m watching the Devils/Lightning game at intermission Bob McKenzie on TSN was reporting that Nonis is in the market for a top 6 forward. He said some of his henchmen were at the Thrashers/Canadiens game on Oct. 30.

Predators in a World of Uncertainty

The Tennessean is suggesting that the Predators are being held up for any possible moves because of the present uncertain status of the team ownership.

The Courier Post Online is reporting that the Flyers will be active seekers of Peter Forsberg.

That's it…I'm done with the Leafs…call me a Sens fan from now on!

As much as it pains me to say this and as much as I love the TEAM of the Toronto Maple Leafs; I have to stand up for what’s right and end my support for MLSE – Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Huet 'Conundrum'

What to do with Cristobal Huet? Many people say trade him away at the deadline, some say let him go at the end of the season in case we do make a playoff run, some (although few) say get Price starting right NOW.

While all of these people have valid points, I believe that trading Huet will be a gamble no mater what.

Sourced Trade Rumours 2

I got such a good response from the first one, I decided to make a second one. So here it goes:

Edmonton looking to make a deal?

The Edmonton Journal is reporting that Oilers defenseman Dick Tarnstrom may be expendable due to the play of some of some of the younger defenseman.

Possibility of Modano to Montreal

Before everyone jumps all over me..listen to what I have to say…According to RDS a couple of days ago..Montreal may be looking at Modano to fill the first line center position we have available. He would be a great fit because we need a first line center.

Coaching Speculation in Atlanta

Boston.com sports is providing some of the latest speculation regarding the coaching situation in Atlanta.

Ice Pickings

– Randy Jones Suspended for 2 games – Are the Flyers a dirty team?
– The Phoenix Coyotes; an ugly roster on paper
– Some slow starts between the pipes

Trouble in Toronto

Why are the Leafs still struggling to become a contender……

Fairness of the league

Today Randy Jones was served up with a 2 game suspension for his hit on Patrice Bergeron during the 2-1 Flyers win on Saturday. Many fans that are against the Flyers have called for a lengthy suspension against Randy Jones for the hit. Is this simply because fans around the league hate the Flyers and consider them a goon team and compare them to the Broad Street Bullies of the 70’s? Or is it they want an example made of these players to cut down on the checks and hitting that are resulting in injuries.

Forsberg to play with Swedish National team

TSN is reporting that Peter Forsberg will be playing with Team Sweden in the Karjala cup Nov 8th to the 11th in Helsinki.
