…well, we’re not quite sure on that one just yet. One thing we know for sure is that the Roman Empire has fallen in Philadelphia, and that finding a replacement for the “Bipolar Goaler” has yet to begin.
According to TSN.ca, the Pittsburgh Penguins have reportedly been granted permission to speak to New Jersey Devils assistant coach Larry Robinson about their head coaching vacancy.
My mission here will be twofold:
1.) To say goodbye, au revoir, andale pues to the greatest goalie that ever played the game, and
2.) To piss off all you John Elway fans out there.
Phillippe Sauve, David Aebischer, Martin Biron, Sean Burke, Nikolai Khabibulin, John Grahame, Roman Cechmanek, Jose Theodore, Olaf Kolzig, Brian Boucher, Felix Potvin, Jeff Hackett, Chris Osgood, JS Giguere. Which one do the Avs pick? Some of these goalies have chances in Colorado, other will only play against them.
According to tsn it looks like head Coach Lindy Ruff will return to the Buffalo Sabres next season in hopes of making team a playoff contender. Joining Ruff in returning to the team will be G.M. Darcy Regier.
Ray Ferarro of ESPN has reported that the Flyers have traded Roman Cechmanek to the Los Angeles Kings for a 2nd round 2004 pick.
Ever since their second-round loss at the hands of the Ottawa Senators, the Philadelphia Flyers have been trying to decide how to sever ties with their soon-to-be former number one goaltender. General Manager Bob Clarke announced at his end-of-season press conference that he believed that it was in “everyone’s best interest” that Cechmanek not return to the Flyers for the 2003-04 season.
At age 40, Adam Oates may be on the verge of capping off his great career with the greatest prize of all: Lord Stanley’s cup. Although that is not a given, he certainly has come to the realization that this may very well be his last chance. Most of the credit does come back to Giguere for the amazing playoff run, posting heroic numbers while making it look easy, but we can’t leave out Adam who’s leadership on and off the ice has certainly payed dividends for the team.
He leads his team in playoff scoring (4-6:10) and will definately be a force in this final when we see him play with youthfull legs for maybe the last time.
Having prepared Golden Brett’s nifty goals for years in St-Louis or rushing down the ice with Cam Neely in Boston or even Bondra in Washington, his long NHL journey comes down to this series, which will probably be his last.
To wish him the best would be to wish for his team to give him a career crowning Stanley cup a la Ray Bourque.
According to the Edmonton Journal:
Cory Stillman and Tyson Nash to be used as trade bait?
Oleg Tverdovsky to be moved?
Cory Cross happy in Edmonton?
Canucks searching for second-line centre?
