Will Theo play against the Habs?

The Colorado Avalanche are contemplating starting Montreal’s former netminder, for his return to the Bell Center. (Theo’s morale seems to be up right now, and if he wins this game, his morale will sky-rocket… but if the Bell-Center-booes gets to him, his morale will plumet.)

Avs’ coach Joel Quenneville said this week that there was a good chance to see Theodore play against his former team on saturday.

What are your thoughts, should Quenneville go with Theo or give him the night off?

Why not Conroy?

Now, we all know, habs fans or not, Montreal desperately needs that center n.2 to back up Koivu. We also know that Gainey likes the idea of a big, right handed center. A veteran center who is a good two way player, could help youngsters. We also know the Kings are probably looking to get younger up front. You do the math…

Another one bites the dust! Kubina leaves game with knee injury

Yet another Toronto Maple Leafs defensemen has gotten hurt. According to TSN.ca, Pavel Kubina left the game with a knee injury, and did not return (wasn’t home, didn’t see the whole game), joining Colaiacovo, Bell, Wozniewsky, and Kronwall, as the Leafs injured players. This is going to lead to speculation of an impending deal or signing. Tellqvist will likely be gone to make room, and with Marchment and Leetch still available, there are still plenty of options for the Maple Leafs.
