Incase some of you aren’t aware of the Jose Theodore junk about him leaving the Habs because of his father and half brothers loan sharking incident at a Montreal casino in late June this year. And then being seen in local Montreal newspapers with the Hells Angels biker gang is in reality no harm done correct. Here’s my outlook on this junky rumour and scandal. Ok!
Well I’ve seen enough Mario Lemieux bashing I’ll tell you that, so I think it’s time now that someone actually stuck up for this great player and great man. You go into forums and some fool’s running his mouth over how Mario’s the most overrated player in the game, and then another’s smacking about how he is the worst captain in the NHL today (Keith Primeau anyone?). Time to set the record straight Mario Lemieux is now, and always will be one of the greatest, greatest players of this game.

Hockeyfirst.com is reporting that the Rangers have reached an agreement with Boris Mironov. Terms of the deal were not released, however hockeyfirst is reporting close to a 2 year $4 mil deal.

Recently published Montreal Suburban newspaper states that Roy is indeed expressing interest in coming out of retirement to play for his former team where all the glory began. He would like to see his number 33 retired up in the rafters of the Bell center alongside Jacques Plante’s jersey.

I just got done reading an article on ESPN.com on how last week NHL officials actually lost the Stanley Cup in Vienna, Austria. The cup was on its way to Slovokia as part of Devils forward Jiri Bicek’s time with the cup.
See the way it works is you win the cup, each player on the team gets 24 hours with the cup. This leads to the obvious question…What would you do with the cup?
Brian Burke announced on Vancouver radio this last week that he was working on a “big trade.”
So I’m sitting bored at work at midnight unable to go home until my boss has (Why should we care I hear you ask – well its just the start of a post so gloss over and continue).
For a coupla years now I have had an idea rolling around in my head about saving the NHL.
Now that the CBA negotiations are almost upon the NHL and NHLPA I thought it would be a good time to unveil my own “Roadmap to Peace”
I was thinking about really stacked up teams. And I realized, does it really work?
Okay, its been awhile since weve been able to list our favourite prospects, so here you go!
