Mainly to battle boredom I’m asking the question: which of the four major North American sports has the most starpower? I’ll look at each of the 10 best players (all subjective; dont get mad) from each sport and try to judge. So:
With Boston out of the playoffs, the question lingers. What happens next? With Krejci and Kessel RFA’s this offseason, the Bruins have some tough decisions to make. The B’s also have to re-sign Matt Hunwick, Byron Bitz and P.J. Axelsson. So, in light of this situation, I’ve done some thinking. Here’s my offseason plan.
Start negotiations with Krejci early. Get it done and out of the way. Here’s what I would offer David.
TSN.ca is reporting that both Rob and Scott Neidermayer could be interested in joining the Canucks as unrestricted free agents this summer.
It is reported that their agent was on the Team 1040 radio show in Vancouver and mentioned that the brothers could be interested in playing for Canada’s West Coast club.
Well I got an interesting response to my posting.
Most of my ideas have already come from various media sources as being probable outcomes for the habs. To begn with I read about all issues concerning the Habs from such media outlets as RDS, TQS-110% Rue Frontenac, CKAC, TSN, NHL.com the NHL Network on Tv, the 4th period and Hockey Trade rumours. That being said, most of the trades I have mentioned or FA signings are not impossible to imagine.
Ever since Jordan Staal broke into the league, I have wanted him to become a Leaf somehow. With his size and skill, he is being wasted on the 3rd line with the Pens, imo. $4M/yr. is also a lot of money to be paying a player you have centering your 3rd line. With the very real potential of the cap shrinking considerably in a year or two, that $4/yr. would be better utilized in other areas, imo.
There is no question that Winnipeg is full of intense hockey fans. There is also no denying that the city has been teased a number of times with the return of an NHL franchise, and have since become cynical and disillusioned about the issue. Almost any good news at all on this front is met with a flurry of pessimism.
I think the Habs need to get rid of their team Euro image.
If the team is sold promptly and Bob Gainey keeps his position I would do the following if I were him.
At first I thought the talks of trading Luongo were ridiculous over-reaction. But it could possibly work.
TSN.ca is reporting that the Colorado Avalanche have offered Patrick Roy the head coach position in Colorado. What is a little odd about the situation is that the Avalanche have yet to fire Tony Granato who still has 2 years left on his present contract.
Make your ultimate team: 13 forwards, 7 defenseman, 3 goalies from players that are currently in the league. I’m also including football, basketball, and baseball because, well, i want to…even if this is a hockey site.
On draft day the leafs are going for a higher pick but who wll they trade to get it? Well there are a few they need to move like, Nik Hagman With a 3 Million dollars a season should be traded, Boyd Devereaux could go due to the fact the leafs are set in the Center Spot, Pavel Kubin can with they big money contract isn’t playing at the level he should, Tomas Kaberle can go if there is a trade for a pick but he is still good.
Calling all GTA and Golden horseshoe Leafs fans!… would you defect? Would you become a Hamilton fan?
It might seem stupid, but its actually very possible. It only makes sense for the Canucks in the long term…. see why
