According to a few NHL sources the Edmonton Oilers and the Philadelphia Flyers attempted to make a deal. It was said that the Oilers offered defenseman Janne Niinimaa for Lindros’ rights. Then, the Oilers would have traded Eric Lindros to the Toronto Maple Leafs or the New York Rangers for less expensive talent, but the attempt failed.
There is a buzz around the Island. With 2 Marquee players on the roster(soon to be signed).Yashin and Peca will bring the fans back to the coliseum. For once I think Milbury has done the right thing.
Titles of articles are: “Leafs Sign Sundin”, “The Hawks Re-Sign Two”, “Jagr Wants to Make Pens”, “Rangers Sign Zdeno Ciger, More Moves To Follow?”, “Let’s Make a Deal”.
P.S. Feel free to comment on the idea of “Many Articles In One”.
Chris Osgood will most likely be traded. The Wings could probably get more
trade value from Legace, but I’m pretty sure Osgood will be the one to go,
but it probably won’t be until the season starts. Here’s why.
The Carolina Hurricanes signed Tom Barrasso to a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed. Tom Barrasso only played 25 games in the past two seasons.
With the signing of journeymen Bobby Corkum and Tony Hrkac, the Thrashers finally have taken a step toward filling a void in reliable face-off men. At the same time, Todd Reirden will go a long way to filling the defensive void left by Stevie-the-Bruise-Staios who recently signed with the Oilers.
Because of the short length of some submitted articles, which are good, they are posted in here, a “Many Articles In One. The following titles are: “Islanders in Lindros Hunt?”, “Canuck Goalie Problem”, “Hull To New Jersey?”, “Allison to B’s”, “Has Detroit Made a Mistake?”, “This Is One Guy That’s Perfect”, and “Osgood Going to East for Big Defenseman?”.
Now since the Rangers missed out on the Jagr deal, there is one big name left out there who wants to be traded. We all know who that is, cry baby, wimp, spoiled Eric Lindros. If the Rangers add number 88 on their roster, it would only create problems. And, what will happen to Brian Leetch?
Coming from a HUGE Canadian Hockey fan, the last Olympics for Canada kinda blew. No kidding. The management for team Canada will have to make some big adjustments from the last Olympic roster to be wearing the gold come February. This is the line-up in my opinion will maybe not do the trick but at least get them a spot in the finals to either win or… yeah, win!
Today is July 14th. Today is my birthday. I’m turning 30 today. As if this isn’t bad enough, I have to keep longingly looking into the store window as other people buy up all of the birthday presents I wanted. What birthday presents do I want…
While it is obviously too early to begin making predictions, I’d like to take a look at the Eastern Conference.
Another week has past and still more free agents were on the move, and more signings took place. And very characteristically the Devils sat on their hands and watched other clubs shell out the big bucks.
“Why does everyone think Craig Patrick screwed Pittsburgh hockey over? He said at the beginning of the off-season that he was only going to look for top prospects in return for Jagr (that is what he got).”
Keith Tkachuk signed a one-year deal worth 8.3 million dollars with the St. Louis Blues. Tkachuk Stated he wants to stay in St. Louis and is seeking for a long-term contract after the 2001-2002 season.
Obvoiusly there have been tremendous changes made to nearly every team in the league, but does that mean that there will be drastic changes in the eight teams from each conference that will make the playoffs?
“After learning the specifics of the whole Jagr deal between the Rangers, Penguins and Washington, the New York Rangers might turn out to be the winners afterall, and the Penguins and Capitals, the losers.”
