TSN is reporting Patrice Bergeron has re-signed with the Boston Bruins. The deal is reportedly worth $23.75 Million over 5 years.
According to tsn.ca Saku Koivu has been training hard the upcoming season and is optimistic that he will be ready for training camp. The Montreal Canadiens captain has been skating regularly now for the last three weeks after recovering from surgery to repair a torn retina in his left eye. While things have been going well on the ice, Koivu acknowledges there is always the possibility of suffering further injury to his eye. “When I look in a straight line, everything is fine,” he tells La Presse. “But when I look side-to-side… it’s a bit of a problem.” Koivu was struck in the eye by an errant high stick from Justin Williams during Game 3 of the Habs first round playoff series against Carolina. Hopefully he will be ready to start the season and lead the Habs to a playoff berth and possibly a Stanley Cup Championship!:)
There are players who breakout as superstars every year and there are players in the nhl that dont quite get the credit they deserve here are a few that i think fit into that category
To many, it would be a dream to see all 6 Canadian teams make the playoffs. It almost happened last season, with the Leafs and Cannucks taking 9th in their conferences. Could this year be the year?
Today I was pondering, what would make the best lineup in the world? I know there has been many threads made up in a bunch of different sites about the best lines, but one needs to look not at the line, but the player. To put the best line together, you need to know the best players at their position. This is what I plan on doing, analyzing the best players in their position.
In one of my keeper leagues, I have the pleasure of owning Jason Allison, of no fixed address. Those poolies that also own him know one thing: it’s a waste of time trying to trade him. The same goes for owners of Anson Carter, Mike Leclerc, Oleg Kvasha, J.P. Dumont, Valeri Bure, Radek Dvorak, Peter Bondra, Yanic Perreault, and Brian Leetch. These guys were not the dregs of the unrestricted free agent lot (heck, Dumont wasn’t even a free agent three weeks ago!), but they are the best of what’s left.
With team rosters pretty much set for the upcoming season, the question arises, “Which team’s top line will be the most and the least productive?”
This current offseason has certainly changed the look of many teams. These new looks could be viewed both for the good or bad of the team in many’s eyes. However, this season is full of tighter divisional races as well as conference and league wide competetion.
There has been a rumor floating around that the Vancouver Canucks are in negotiations with forwards Jason Allison and Radek Dvorak. Dvorak is believed to be seeking anywhere from $1 to $2 million.
Although many might say it is far too early to look into the season with so much time left in the offseason for an occasional huge move or two. However, I think that this team needs a real in depth look at because they are a big question mark team going into the season.
There have been a lot of rumors floating around about Nik Antropov being shopped (to Detroit, Chicago…) and so many people believe he is useless. I disagree.
According to media reports The Edmonton Oilers and Brian Leetch have been talking in hopes of signing him to a contract.
As a Penguin fan my whole life, living just outside of the city, I’ve grown a hatred for the Washington Capitals. Now I know, especially Toronto and Montreal Fans, some of y’all believe certain rivalries are the best in the NHL. I’m a firm believer that Washington and Pittsburgh had/have one of the greatest rivalries in the NHL.
According to tsn:The Vancouver Canucks addressed a lack of depth on defence by signing free agent Rory Fitzpatrick on Friday.Terms of the contract were not released!!
TSN.CA is reporting that Stillman will be out 3-4 months following shoulder surgey.
Will Rutherford seek a short term replacement???
Just a few years ago the Colorado Avalanche looked as if they would always be on top of the league. Today, it wouldn’t be very far-fetched to predict the Avs to be in bottom 8 in the West at the end of next years season. On the other hand, the Anahiem Ducks are by most considered cup contenders for next season, possibly battling teams like Nashville, Pheonix, or even Minnesota in the opening round of the playoffs.
Which teams will be the best, the worst and who will be the biggest suprise?
Let the doubt subside. Let the Malkin rumors, the Dumont rumors be put aside. Let the rumors about Aebisher be put down for a moment.
According to All Ducks.com, the Montreal Canadiens will announce a big trade with the New York Islanders…
Sportsnet is reporting that the Vancouver Canucks signed thier version of the killer B’s on Thursday, agreeing to terms with Tyler Bouck and Kevin Bieksa.
