This story just got more interesting. It is not sure who is telling the truth, but it certainly seems like Mike Keenan is the weisel in this mystery.
The flyers have now been shut out in 2 consecutive games, and have not scored a regulation goal against the Senators. The flyers are playing mediocre at best and are being out classed by a team that they should be built to beat. What follows are my observations of the series so far.
Stan Fischler is a hockey analyst and is a commentator during New Jersey Devils intermissions on Fox Sports, sometimes on MSG the channel. Fischler also wrote books and has tons of hockey history knowledge and knows tons about many things in the NHL. Here he talks about the 10 top candidates to coach the New York Rangers next season.
ESPN is reporting that there is a chance Philadelphia Flyers goalie Roman Cechmanek might miss Monday nights game three playoff start because of an ankle injury. Cechmanek re-agrivated the sprained right ankle that kept him out of 13 games at the end of the season in last nights pathetic 3-0 loss to the Senators. If Cechmanek can’t go Brian Boucher would be the starter. Flyers coach Bill Barber was quoted as saying “Boucher has done a great job for us, If it comes to that I’m comfortable with it and so is the team” Cechmanek did not practice with the team Sunday.
Was Jagr that big of a good deal, or was Monica Lewinsky found in the Capitals GM’s office? Key players, the staff, and what is to be expected in the off-season for the Washington Capitals.
Tsn.ca has reported that the Mighty Ducks of Anahiem has fired GM and President Pierre Gauthier. Here is the link to the story.
The New Jersey Devils are down 2-0 in the 1st round playoff series against the Carolina Hurricanes. How can this be? What is going wrong? Are the Devils in a bad position?
The key players. The coach, general manager. In what kind of po$ition is this team in? A review of the Edmonton Oilers’ 2001-2002 regular season as the missed the playoffs, finishing the season with 92 points.
Which is the most exciting series to watch in the playoffs? How far can THN’s Stanley Cup winner favorite Flyers go? Can the Canucks ‘eh’ the Wings? This is HTR’s 2002 Playoff match-up preview.
Flyers go with Cechmanek for the playoffs
The Atlanta Thrashers earlier told a local newspaper they were ready to give up their first pick overall (they had the best % of winning-25%) for immediate help on the ice. They will probably be more than willing to give up the 2nd pick now that we know the order of the draft. Maybe the Florida Panthers that have 2 picks in the first 10 are preparing a big trade involving the 1st pick overall as well…
After a first half of the season whereby even some of their die-hard fans were writing them off as a team unable to make the playoffs, the Vancouver team has somehow managed to salvage their season, and is turning it on at the critical point…right before the playoffs begin.
The Rangers marked a career high of 5 straight seasons without entering the playoffs. Although this was a very disappointing and very frustrating season, it was different than the previous seasons where the Rangers never accomplished anything good. This is the review of the Rangers 2001-2002 season as there will be the reviews of the other non-playoff teams. A review of the players, coaches, GMs’ transactions, the positives and negatives that came out of this season, and what the team should do in the off-season.
There is a ton of talent that isnt going to be under contract at the end of the season, and many of them will leave their old teams. Where will they end up?
The Theo Fluery saga has taken another twist today as Fleury has publically made an ultimatum, he will either play for the Rangers next year or play in Europe.
While I am proud to say that I will soon have U.S citizenship, just some personal news, I want to say that the past article involving Brashear was a complete mess-up that went out of control. If I deeply irritated HTR members during that “brawl”, then I am sorry that I didn’t get my point across well enough to make you understand. But, I am glad to see that I have more HTR members to debate topics with for the summer, not that I did it on purpose to have that. Anyway, that’s in the past, gone, finished, over, done, terminado, finito.
Fleury out…Lundmark in? What has Fleury done to anger the Rangers organization? The NY Post reports of Fleury and his problems with the Rangers. Rangers attempt the offer they gave to Sakic years ago, but this time involving Iginla?
Brashear, was he really worth it? Can Forsberg power up the struggling Avs offense?
Alexander Daigle was expected to be a player full of talents that would dominate the NHL. Yesterday afternoon, Wolfgang Von Holfensteiner had a meeting with the former NHL player who disappointed the fans and the league. Daigle is willing to make a come back.
While the HTR staff should really give a lot of credit to titans for waking us up, TradeMan and I have come up with a few good plans for this summer with DG. I have a few good ideas for the site’s future, and I would appreciate it if HTR members would contribute to this and share opinions, suggestions, and comments.
