Looking for best hockey warm up songs new and old. Thought I would start off with the top 5 in each for now, any thoughts?
According to TSN, the Chicago BlackHawks have traded F Radim Vrbata to the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for F Kevyn Adams in an 1-for-1 swap.
According to the NYIslanders website, defensemen Andy Sutton has signed a 3-year deal with the team.
No financial terms have been announced but Sutton was believed to be seeking a 4M$ per year contract (can you say OVERPRICED?) when free agency began… should be interesting to find out how much he got.
NHL.COM has posted that the Sens have picked up Luke Richardson.
How many smiling Leaf fans are reading this?
According to Rich Hammond of Inside The Kings ( www.insidesocal.com/kings ), Mike Cammalleri’s contract awarded by an arbitrator would be 3.1M$ for the first year and 3.6M$ for the second, with a cap hit of 3.35M$ per year.
At one time I was a die hard Oilers fan and seeing them go to game seven against Carolina was simply amazing. They came out of nowhere and overcame the odds and had one hell of a playoff run. It was all downhill from there.. many key players bolted out of Edmonton. It all started with Chris Pronger’s trade demand, soon Tarnstrom, Spacek, Peca and Samsonov followed suit. Kevin Lowe didnt do anything to replace those lost players and went into the following season with some big holes on defence. To top it all off K-Lowe traded Ryan Smyth at the trade deadline (that was my breaking point with this team) for alot less than he could have got.
I hope everyone who is SUPPOSEDLY a HABS fan will read and truly listen to what I’m going to say! Bob Gainey is exactly what Montreal needed and NEEDS! He is doing everything that a GM should be doing…
Kevin Lowe is desparate. He thought he had Nylander, but lost him. He thought he had Vanek, but lost him. Now one has to wonder what he thinks about Penner.
While Gainey has brought over a couple of older players the last couple of years like Mark Streit and Jani Lahit, what about Alexandre Daigle? We all know he was never what he was supposed to be in the NHL but the last year he played with Min he played in 46 games and had 28 points. He played last season with Davos and had 61 points in 44 games.
Well since I’ve been hearing everyone say, “if you’re sick of seeing leafs articles, then write an article about your team or another team.” I’ve noticed that there hasn’t been a pens article in a while so hear it goes.
