Should The Habs And Flyers Make A Deal For Carey Price?

All those “Price is right” puns – Habs fans likely never imagined it would come to this and take on such a perspective.

This might be more than speculative, but rumours are that the Flyers were only curious about the asking price for Jaroslav Halak a few months back, and that the goaltender they truly covet is Carey Price. In fact, as Halak earned more starts for Montreal down the final stretch, at one point, GM Pierre Gauthier let it slip that calls for Price from teams actually increased the more the Habs leaned towards Halak as their go to goalie.

More Hockey World

Jim Matheson

The Dallas Stars aren’t tickled with playmaking centre Mike Ribeiro who was late for an off-day meeting, and got scratched against Anaheim. They would move him because they have Brad Richards in the No. 1 centre hole and Jamie Benn being groomed for the second slot. How about Ribeiro for his old Montreal Canadiens teammate Sheldon Souray?

Rangers had done deal for Stamkos

It may sound like a fish story, but if so, then Glen Sather sure has come up with a whopper.

The Rangers’ GM told Slap Shots on Thursday that he “shook hands” on a trade last year that would have brought Steven Stamkos from Tampa Bay to New York less than halfway through the brilliant 20-year-old center’s rookie season.

Luongo confused by his play

Iain MacIntyre

Whoever has Roberto Luongo’s game, please return it to him. The playoffs are coming and he needs it. Eventually, so will the Vancouver Canucks.

The beleaguered goalie sat on the bench Friday and watched backup Andrew Raycroft start against the Anaheim Ducks, one night after Luongo surrendered eight goals on 29 shots to the Los Angeles Kings on one of his worst nights in the National Hockey League.

Steve Yzerman to Calgary? It's anything but certain


Here’s a topic that seems to come up fairly frequently: When is Steve Yzerman going to get bored playing second or third fiddle in the Red Wings’ front office and want to run his own team? You know, other than Team Canada.

Are Wilson's barbs getting to his players?

James Mirtle

To call it a new story would be misleading, so I won’t. But it’s definitely a hot topic of conversation here in Toronto, even with only five games left and even though those may be Tomas Kaberle’s last five with the Leafs.

Injury to Clowe could cost Sharks a new leader

f the puck to the throat that caused left wing Ryane Clowe to leave Wednesday night’s game early turns out to be serious, the Sharks will be losing him at a time when his leadership skills are starting to be recognized.

Don't blame new Tampa Bay Lightning owner if he cleans house

Gary Shelton

The goal is still there. After all this time, and after all this misery, it can still be reached.

Do not talk of the odds, and do not pay attention to the pressure, for you have seen the Lightning, and deep down you know it is capable of pulling this off. It has the goaltending for it, and the defense, and the right amount of depth on its scoring lines.

proposed new rule- Bear Hug

Toronto Maple Leafs General Manager Brian Burke is convinced a good hug may go a long way to curbing a constant safety issue in the NHL – hitting from behind…. the solution, is BEAR HUGS!

What needs to be done to solidify our Playoff chances.

Brian Burke has made some great moves for the Leafs going forward. Although he has tweaked the lineup in a major way, there are still some moves to be made over the summer. These moves would be cost effective, and at the same time give us the contender tag. Here goes:
