Time to drag out my favorite old “Strange Happenings” category again…..
I have a side bet with two people that this post will never see the light of day……..
So – the Avs won last night against the Lightning, in the type of game they were supposed to play all year according to the pundits (5-4 in overtime, on Hejduk’s 2nd successful penalty shot in a week) (!).
The Red Wings and Canucks both lost (insert muffled laughter here). This means the Avs and Wings are tied for the most points in the NHL.
According to TSN.ca, the Flyers would be shopping for a defensemen to replace injured Eric Desjardins.
According to Jim Rutherford himself, he expects to complete a deal as soon as today!
UPDATE: TSN reports that the Hurricanes have traded defensemen Danny Markov to the Flyers in exchange of forward Justin Williams
According to the Winnipeg Sun, an NHL franchise would’ve recently contacted the municipal authorities of the city of Winnipeg regarding the possibility to move their team in the canadian city…
The Boston Bruins acquired today veteran defensemen Jiri Slegr from the Vancouver Canucks
A very reliable source is telling me that Georges Laraque is headed to the Ottawa Senators as early as Saturday. Another source is saying that it is done that he’s headed to the Sens, they just are discussing who/what is coming back the other way.
The hits just keep on coming for the Flyers. Since last nights embarrassing 6-2 loss to the Sabres and the obvious frustration of forwards including the young tandem of Gagne & Williams and that of prominent team leader Jeremy Roenick. One has to wonder what needs to be don’t to correct all of this.
So some nations have gotten there World Cup Roster posted here in the resent days. So lets take a closer look at what might be expected from Mother Svea. All the names are pretty much set so lets look at them and guess what lines we will see.
With Brent Johnson going unclaimed on waivers, I cannot help but wonder why the Hawks have not laid their hands on him, especially considering the unimpressive play of Thibault’s replacements.
These are my power rankings for the Eastern Conference teams based on the first half of this year.
