Berard again played well on Sunday night’s game against the Bruins, finished 3-0 win for New York Rangers. Berard played 22 shifts, about 17:41 minutes of ice time, 4 hits, 2 blocked shots, 1 shot and a +1. Seems as if he will just get better and make a good comeback, a decent one.
These were Sunday night’s Line Ups of the Rangers:
Nedved – Messier – Dvorak
Ciger – Lindros – Fleury
Johansson – York – McCarthy
Heisten – Malhotra – Grosek
Leetch – Berard
Ulanov – Malakhov
Van Impe – Karpa
Take a look at how Bryan performed in his first game back, and is the media acting immature about Berard not coming back with the Leafs? Will Sather decide to play Blackburn as back-up? How will Coach Ron Low set the line-ups for the regular season?
I read on the ESPN.com Canucks messageboard the the deal is almost complete and will be anounced in the next few days. The Canucks would trade a 2nd or 3rd round pick and future considerations to the Penguins for J.S. Aubin.
Espn reports: DETROIT — The Detroit Red Wings have left goaltender Chris Osgood unprotected for the NHL’s waiver draft after the team was unable to trade him.
I like the previous Top 50 Fantasy Player, this is more like a guide with deeper advices. I will list the players of each field, and I will tell you who could be the surprising players:
Osgood Out of Detroit
In just over 24 hours, if they haven’t already, the Detroit Red Wings will say good-bye to netminder Chris Osgood. At 2:00 ET (correct me if I’m wrong) all teams in the NHL will have to submit their list of proteted players. There is a max of two goalies, and the Wings will keep Hasek and Legace. You can bet that GM Ken Holland is trying his darndest to trade Ozzie before the deadline. If he doesn’t, it is almost a certainty that Ozzie will be picked up in the draft on Friday. But where will Ozzie go? There are still some teams that need a good starting goalie, but don’t necessarily have the right people to trade for him. Regardless, the bottom line is this. Holland NEEDS to trade Osgood, or Detroit will have lost one of their greatest goalies for nothing in return.

Osgood a Castaway?
The most likely destination for displaced starting goaltender Chris Osgood looks to be the New York Islanders.
With Dipietro being so young, and Garth Snow being Garth Snow, the Isles would be doing themselves a favor by picking up a relatively young, solid goaltender.
In return, the Isles could give the Wings a few different things. Defenseman Kenny Jonsson is a possibility. Maybe if the Wings throw in Jesse Wallin or Max Kuznetsov, Roman Hamrlik could be had. Most likely though, Osgood will go to the Island for a draft pick(probably 2nd Round) and a prospect.

I want to start by giving you a small feedback on the Rangers vs. Islanders game which turned out to be a brawl, Lindros involved. Then, how did Richter look on his first hockey game since his injury?
Why does this have to happen to Bruins fans every year? Why did I think this year would be different? He is an article from the Boston Globe.
I have a couple of short articles to report. First the San Jose Sharks signed back-up goalie Mikka Kiprusoff to a one-year contract extension. Also Daniel Alfredsson has agreed to a one yr/$3 million contract with the Ottawa Senators. The rumor that Jason Allison was close to signing for 3 yrs./$21-22 million with the Bruins is apparently false, and negotiations continue to go on. And finally espn.com is reporting that Bryan Berard will attempt to make a comeback to the NHL with the New York Rangers.
There is a rumor floating around that Allison is going to sign tomorow for 22.7million over 3 years. Has anyone else heard this? If so where?
