State of the NHL: Is Canada being caught up to?

Canada has long been the place where NHL-ers are bred, born, and brought in from. The game the Canadians made popular is, in the Canadians’ opinions, played best by Canadians.

However, is the rest of the world catching up to Canada? I point to the Detroit Red Wings as your answer- YES.

How about that call last night?

That Stars and Oilers game last night was a classic. The crowd was into it, the Oilers fed off it, the Stars played good, not great, and with a very depleated line up, and it was just a great game. Why the refs tried to ruin it boggles my mind!

Pierre McGuire confirms a Leaf will put on waivers.

Pierre McGuire, TSN’s “hockey insider” and analyst, reported on the Mitch Melnyk Show on Team 990 in Montreal that a “high-profile” Leaf player will be put on waivers very soon.

He apparently got a call late last night, around 1 or 2am, from a reliable Leaf source.

Isbister for Satan?

WFAN in New York last night reported the Islanders and Sabres have agreed in principal on a deal that would have Brad Isbister and either a prospect or a high pick going to Buffalo for Mirolslav Satan. TFP has put the same rumor on its website.

Looks Like Savard Is Busy!!

* Has André Savard made an offer for Nolan??? *

* Georges Larque Available? *

* Wings willing to include Zetterberg or Datsyuk in a deal? *

* What the hell was A.Savard looking at on the last trip?? *

DG's Quick Hits- March 4, 2003 Edition

I know…it’s been awhile; but I’ve been busy with schoolwork so I haven’t had time for articles lately. Rest assured, though, that I’m still alive and well, though excuse me if I get a few details wrong…I’ve been out of the loop for a while.

Anyway, this week’s hits:

No “sure bets” on Deadline Day

Alfredsson defers cheques…and warms hearts

On the radar screen: Sergei and Anna, the Nashville Predators and their season ticket base, Lost Causes, Hull, the NHL and losing, and a lot more

Method to their madness?

Everyone is shocked by the Kings stupid trade giving up yushkevich for a 7th and 4th rounder. I think there might be a little more to it than just a stupid GM.

Wesley would consider Toronto.

The Fourth Period – According to the Toronto Sun, Carolina defenseman Glen Wesley appears to be willing to become a Maple Leaf. “If it arises that Toronto has some interest in me, it is something I am going to look at,” the Hurricanes defenceman said yesterday. “I think for any Canadian kid, to play in Toronto would be a thrill. I think it would be exciting for anyone to put on the Leafs uniform.”

Has Clarkey lost his mind?!?! Still looking to add defensemen?!?!

Tim Panaccio of the Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting Flyers General Manager Bob Clarke “conceded” he was unable to pry defenceman Mathieu Schneider from the LA Kings, instead settling for adding depth by obtaining Dmitri Yushkevich yesterday. Clarke stated if another deal for a defenceman can be made by the deadline, he’ll do it.

A Disgrace

Did anybody watch the Edmonton/St.Louis game tonight? Suprise, suprise, TC is talking about the Oilers! But seriously this was disgusting!
