HTR.com To Shut Down

Terrible news my fellow hockey fans, just so awful…… please click to read more as I will explain what went wrong….

Price or Fleury?

I know most of you will say they’d take Carey Price over Marc-Andre Fleury in a heartbeat for the duration of their careers. Heck, I might be convinced to agree with you given Price’s potential.
My question is: Who is currently better? A 20-year-old Price or a 23-year-old Fleury?
and: Who would you rather start in the playoffs: A goalie who couldn’t handle the pressure in the 2004 WJHC as some claim, but was only the third goalie in NHL draft history to be chosen first overall and the second youngest goalie in NHL history to get 40 wins (Terry Sawchuk being the youngest), or a young goalie with no NHL playoff experience but who was chosen 5th overall and who has dominated in the AHL playoffs?

Before you decide, please arm yourself with some knowledge about how these two goaltenders have played of late. [Also, an offer of reconciliation with Habs fans.]

PADDOCK FIRED

The Team 1200 Radio is reporting that the Ottawa Senators have fired head coach John Paddock, and assistant coach Ron Low.

GM Bryan Murray, who took the Sens to the cup final last year, will be resuming his duties as head coach. No word yet on who will be his assistant.

The Aftermath

Hello hockey fans! Finally the day of intensity is over with and it feels like things are back to normal again. It was a good day for the NHL, I thought. Intriguing trades, and almost tied for number of total trades as well. It was also a good day for HockeyTradeRumors.com. Anyway, the aftermath is here…..analysis on every single trade!
