Where Do The Habs Stand At The Deadline?

Sorry to non-Habs fans for another Habs article, it’s just I haven’t written about them in nearly 6 months. So yeah, sorry.

Now, over the last 4 or 5 days, I’ve been asking myself just where does Montreal stand going into the Trade Deadline, which is in 30 days. Should they be big buyers…

All Around the League Comments

Hello hockey fans. It has been a while, but I have been busy. Things have calmed down and just now the season is starting to get the thrills of a long ride. I will be commenting on every, yes that’s right, EVERY, NHL team………in the East. Some of them will get a phrase, others a lot more depth.

Major Hockey Talk

Hello hockey fans. I hope you are enjoying the season thus far even if it has been a bit whacky. A bunch of topics to talk about for the teams I have seen thus far.

Heatley Re-signs with the Sens

According to sportsnet.ca, Heatley has signed a 6 year 45 million dollar deal with the senators.  This equates to 7.5 million dollars per year.  Murray was pushing 7, Heatley was wanting 8, they compromised right down the middle.  I just hope the money doesn’t go to his head and turns into a lazy A$$ like many others do when they hit the big bucks.

Good Job Mr. Murray for getting this one done!
