Updates on Trade Rumors

Could Potvin sing with the Blues? Jagr still needs a center line-mate by his side, is Hrdina still on the block, passing by is Zubrus? So many rumors on the Rangers, yet Sather makes them seem like useless ones, how so? Are the Caps having Oatmeal cereal for breakfast next week?

Blackhawks Fans UNITE

Alright Hawks fans, enough is enough. It is time for us to stand up to the horrid management that our beloved Hawks are run by.

How will the standings go?

I’m sick of new people to the boards sending in these really off-the-wall standings and only giving one line to explain why they will end up that way. Let’s go in-depth about this and share our opinions and see how close we get.

Oates vs Caps, Poti Highly Tradable, Nucks Trust Cloots?, Potvin Won't Be King f

Oates makes Wilson look ridiculous. Poti learns from Allison. GM Burke seems undecided on the goaltending situation. Potvin displeased with the Kings. It is an unhappy day for some players, should it be?

Hedberg, Penguins Agree to Deal

The week did not start off well for Johan Hedberg. First, he was denied a working visa to enter the United States because he did not have a contract so he therefore did not have a job which is a qualification for a working visa.

Well, things got a bit easier today. Johan Hedberg, 28, signed a new deal with the Penguins. In accordance with club policy, the terms of the deal were not released but it is believed that the deal is a three year deal worth around $3 mil. The Penguins have invited six goaltenders to this years camp.

The Captain of the Montreal Canadiens has cancer.

What is happening with Saku is a tragedy. He is only 26, and fighting the biggest battle of his life.

What ever happens next is in the hands of God. Would he be strong enough to overcome this sickness. I like to say yes. Lance Arsmstrong is the perfect example. After, overcoming a cancer, and almost loosing his life, he came back to win the Tour de France 3 times. Wow!

I invite hockey fans, like or dislike the Habs, to do a little prayer for Saku, and hope he gets back his health.

As for the situation on the ice, Savard obviously is not thinking about that at the moment, but soon he will.

Does that mean that it is emminent that a keeper and a defensman should be traded in the intention of getting a power forward ???

RR

A Look At the New Coyotes

The Phoenix Coyotes without a doubt have made the most changes this summer. New management has made a lot of cost cutting deals to rebuild the franchise. Key players once thought to be vital parts of the team found new homes last season and this off-season.

Yashin Cashes IN

The Islanders will announce that they have signed Yashin to a 10 year $90-91 million deal.

This deal makes it the richest contract package in the NHL’s history.

He wont be the highest paid player per year but the sum of $90 is the highest ever in the league. The 27-year-old center had 218 goals and 273 assists in 504 regular-season games with Ottawa over his career.

Chandler

Waiver Draft

I’m interested to see who every one thinks the team’s will leave availabile when the Waiver Draft comes? And where do you think some of the players are going to go?

Forwards?

Defenders?

Goalies?

Reid

Theo Fleury Is Cleared

The NHL and the NHLPA announced that Theo Fleury is cleared to play with the New York Rangers for this up-coming season. Good job Fleury for getting through a tough moment and I wish him good luck for the 2001-2002 season.
