tragic news for the Vancouver Canucks organization and it’s fans today as they learned that their top prospect defensemen, Luc Bourdon, has been killed in a motorcycle accident.
He was 21 and was expected to crack the lineup next season.
all our thoughts goes to Bourdon’s friends and family.
Since the shootout has come into the NHL, the number of three point games has greatly increased. Instead of the occasional overtime win or overtime loss, mixed in with a lot of ties, we now always have a winner, meaning every overtime game is worth three points. I am not a fan of the shootouts. I don’t think it makes sense to have something in the regular season that you don’t in the postseason. And yes, the same would hold true for ties, but ties are not an entirely new aspect to the game like a shootout is.
Here are my predictions for who will round out which order to go to the playoffs, and the playoff predictions itself. I tried to use as much insight as possible, and accompanied a rating of each teams three departments (Offence, Defence, and Goaltending) based on this years perfomance and the latest performance. I also invented the GSP (Grade System Points) to make a prediction at who will win the Cup. Please refer to the Legend if need clarification. My own predictions follow.
Regular Season Standings:
As the days continue, and the Los Angeles Kings continue to lose, it is fair for one to beleive that they will land the first overall pick.
If you watch TSN enough, and see all the constant reminders, Steven Stamkos is the shoe in to go number one. So if Los Angeles selects him, they have a future team leader which is great for the a young and blossoming team, but they are also faced with a major problem, five centres who all have the possibility of being on the teams top line.
According to newspaper La Presse (citing the Toronto Sun), Mats Sundin refused to agree on a deal that would’ve sent him to Montreal at the Trade Deadline.
Here’s the link for the new trailer for Mike Myers new movie “The Love Guru” (featuring the Toronto Maple Leafs): http://www.firstshowing.net/2008/02/28/mike-myers-the-love-guru-trailer-has-arrived/
The movie hasn’t been getting very good reviews, but to be honest, I’m still gunna catch it in theatres opening day. It stars Myers, Verne Troyer, Jessica Alba, and Justin Timberlake. Myers plays a “Love Guru” who is hired by the Leafs to get their star player to get back with his wife before the Stanley Cup finals.
Any thoughts about the movie?
Both Havlat and Ohlund undergo season ending surgery.

I will give credit where credit is due, Roberto Luongo and Martin Brodeur still rule supreme in the crease kingdom. However the situation gets a little murky after those two. There is some mention of Henrik Lundqvist, Mikka Kiprusoff and Evgeny Nabokov, but the best goalie nobody talks about is…. Marty Turco
Chris Pronger’s skate stomp to the ankle of Ryan Kesler was ruled to be a non-suspendable offence by the NHL today.

Mats Sundin may be thinking twice about his refusal to waive his no trade clause with the Maple Leafs, and the Detroit Red Wings might be the team that gives him incentive to do so.
