Ok I know some of you didn’t like my Tom Green type joke. So I had an idea that every Monday we share a couple jokes with each other. Love to hear sports related jokes, but other will be fine as well. Here are a couple…
Watching the National Football League play-offs has made me wonder: what if the National Hockey League adopted the same idea, with single-game elimination rather than a full seven-game series? I know that my idea is increasingly idealistic, but I have my reasons.
For the past few years, I’ve always joked with my friends that a particular team is so inept they’ll have to take anyone that breathes just to play with them. Well, I’ve decided to take the joke further and put together some “Help Wanted” ads for this express purpose. Let’s see if you can guess the teams (Answers at the bottom). Enjoy:
I know this has been covered before, but ESPN and ABC’s coverage has become ridiculous. It’s become unbearable! It’s hard to even enjoy a game.
This week: the trades of Valeri Kamensky and Sandis Ozolinsh, and the beginning of rumours surrounding the Atlanta Thrashers’ first round draft pick.
One of the most credible sources (TSN) have said that the Montreal Canadiens is very interested in receiving Anaheim Might Duck captain Paul Kariya in a package deal. The Canadiens would give up one of their back-up goaltenders, Jeff Hackett or Mathieu Garon (probably Garon), left winger Brian Savage, and defencemen Andrei Markov and Sheldon Souray.
Now that the National Hockey League has reached the half-way mark, I thought I’d update my earlier “Quarterly Report: Underachievers and Overachievers in today’s NHL.” Keep in mind these are my picks, and they might be different than yours. Anyhow, here’s my list:
I have been hearing a number of trade rumours surrounding the Florida Panthers in the last couple of weeks and the fact is that the team needs to shake things up a little.
For the past two months, I’ve regularly done an article called “A different look on trade rumours.” Now, I’m still continuing it- don’t worry hockey fans- but I have to say the only rumours I seem to be getting are from the same teams. Not to say that the Canadian teams or the Detroit Red Wings or any other of the major contenders are not interesting, it’s just that I don’t think the little teams get much recognition.
He didn’t against the St. Louis Blues, who along with captain Chris Pronger are starting to find their stride now, but the question is can Mario Lemieux inspire his struggling Pittsburgh Penguins towards the playoffs, just how Pronger is doing with St. Louis?
Ok, after reading thru all the crap about Darren McCarty, Kirk Maltby and Drapes (Kris Draper) all being considered for trades to get “Kasper” (Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Darius Kasparitus) to Hockeytown (the Detroit Red Wings), I should not have to remind you that the ‘Grind Line” no matter if they play together every night or not, is a killer marketing idea that the Wings will ride till those guys quit
After watching the Rangers flounder thru the motions against the Kings the other night ,I have reached the conclusion that Glenn Sather needs to do something quick.
This year has brought the most New Jersey Devils trade rumors I can remember!! But at the same time you still have Uncle Lou (Devils General Manager Lou Lamoriello) at the helm.
