Rockin' Like a Hurricane

It’s Edmonton Versus Carolina. Deja vu anyone?

OLN (Outdoor Life Network) no longer the channel name.

And, HockeyTradeRumors.com’s coverage of the Entry Draft.

Tampa Locks up Richards

The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed their leading point scorer Brad Richards to a 5 year, $39 million dollar contract; making it $7.8M yearly salary.

Oil Spills in Anaheim, and Weather Forecasts. Plus, Booing the Boos

The Oilers are helping my opinion of them way back before the playoffs. But, will they beat the Ducks?

Why didn’t San Jose win?

Weather forecasters actually predict hurricanes will heat the Northeast, for real!

And….correcting the news about the Canadian anthem getting booed. Should the NHL take away the national anthems at the start of each game?

Also, why hockey is the best game in the world.

Memorial Cup Preview

There will be a new Memorial Cup victor this year. The London Knights were swept by the OHL Champion Peterborough Petes in 4 straight one-goal games (2 in overtime). Gilbert Brule (VAN) and the Vancouver Giants dominated the WHL playoffs and were the first team to win their respective league. The QMJHL crown is still up for grabs but the teams contending for the championship are the Moncton Wildcats and the Quebec Remparts who will both be in the Memorial Cup as Moncton is the host city. I will preview all the teams involved and let you know about the key players.

Lacroix Steps Down

According to various reports, General Manager Pierre Lacroix of the Colorado Avalanche has stepped down as GM, but will remain as President of the team. Ten years of great success, Lacroix will go down in history as one of the best general managers in the NHL. Keep the good memories with you Pierre, you earned great respect from me and hope yuo hire the right GM for the Avs!

Big question could arise, however. Will Joe Sakic stay?

Hamilton Back in NHL Mix

Sportsnet.ca — The same company that twice tried to bring the NHL to Hamilton, Ont., is now preparing a bid for the Pittsburgh Penguins with the intention of relocating the team.

3-0, 3-0, 3-0, 2-1

Ottawa not so Sensational.

It’s not Duck season in Colorado.

Devils may blame an organization for their losing.

California’s unfriendliness with Oil.

Let's Go Rangers!

And so, we have the first concluded series of this year’s playoffs, and quite possibly the second one tonight if the Ottawa Senators beat John Torturella and his Lightning.

I cheer Let’s Go Rangers!
