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.
February is a short month and the superstars of this great game aren’t going to need much convincing by the end of it either. The month kicks off with the All-Star game on the 2nd in Los Angeles, before returning to club action for two weeks, and then the coveted Winter Olympics from Salt Lake City starts February 15th.
Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier has been working the phones the past week and a trade will be coming.
Reports from the Toronto Star, that contract extensions are in the works for goaltender Curtis Joseph, who is in the last year of his contract.
Canadian hockey is sadly dying in the NHL, as the only strong market teams are the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. Why doesn’t the Canadian owners create a new league, with just Canadian teams: the CNHL (Canadian National Hockey League).
In this week’s edition: the proposed trade of the New Jersey Devils with the San Jose Sharks, the mess that is the Buffalo Sabres and Chris Gratton, and the “on again, off again” Vancouver Canucks.
