I was sitting back recently and just watching the leafs beat the Rangers again to extend this streak, and thinking to myself… could this be the year? (This was before the Islanders loss. Not that I am jumping off the bandwagon)
Atlanta got an early Christmas present, seeing Dany Heatley skate for the first time on Tuesday. I know, much too early to really get excited about his return. He still has a long way to go in his rehab, most of which will take place off the ice. Even without any setbacks, his return is likely 6-10 weeks from now. But it was still a step in the right direction, albeit a brief one.
The Senators have gotten off to a rocky start this season, but even with their troubles, they sit in 6th place in the Eastern Conference. Luckily, the Senators’ play has been much improved lately and they are starting to look like the Senators of old.
Mario is visited by the ghost of hockey’s present, who takes him on a journey through present-day NHL to show him that having a small payroll isn’t an excuse to suck.
Ok, this idea isn’t mine but yesterday I was listening ”Les Amateurs De Sports” on the radio and they came up with something surprisingly interesting…
Has the CBA disagreement this season actually started the NHL’s metamorphosis into the league we all want and hope for?
This edition, I’m covering everything from the last time I did this (November 8). Coincidentally, it’s my 22nd today too…not that it means anything.
To the mudslinging!
According to MSN.com, Fleury will be able to play for Canada at the world juniours. Apparently, Fleury will be at the training camp on thursday.
This is awesome news for Canadian Juniour Hockey fans! Could this be Canada’s ticket to a GOLD medal??!!
Charles Wang is the owner of the Islanders. He decided to keep Mike Milbury as his GM when he bought the team in April 2000. Here is a letter to Mr. Wang regarding Milbury.
From this fans perspective, it is Mike who should go. He has clainmed responsibility for the Isles 3 week slide after breaking up the “good ole boys” group that formed when the Isles took their team to West Virginia for training camp. This group that wore jeans and CAT tractor hats included Wiemer, Peca, Aucoin and some other veterans. Rookies couldn’t break into the group. Getting rid of Wiemer not only was supposed to save salary, but break this group up. The remaining players countered with “Members Only” t-shirts. There is obviously friction in that locker room. The Isles started very strongly winning 7 of their first 11, however they have won only 2 of their last 11 since Jason Wiemer was let go. They have lost 6 in a row.
TSN.ca is reporting that Ken Holland informed Curtis Joseph this morning that he has been placed on waivers. CUJO will not accompany the Wings on their trip through St. Louis and Toronto. In the event that CUJO isn’t claimed, he could be demoted to the AHL.
I was driving to lunch today when Howard Berger of the Fan 590 continued to mention that there have been talks between the Leafs and the Islanders. He reiterated that many of the reports are on Peca, but he also doesn’t understand why the leafs would want Peca with their glut at centre. However he did mention that JFJ has actually incquired about Defenseman Eric Cairns.
Well the jerseys for this year are out, and my critiquing them is over. But somehow I feel my crusade is not over. So frends, here is the list of the worst NHL jerseys ever!
