Razor's Edge

Andrew Raycroft and Ray Emery both share the same nickname – RAZOR – and it’s become obvious that who deserves this knickname will be earned on the ice.

They were both drafted in the mid-rounds, both played in the OHL for 3 seasons, AHL and had breakout rookie campaigns – Raycroft winning ROY, Emery winning player on the month honours and setting a Sens record for winning streak.

Raycroft has 3 years seniority on Emery, but Emery has won a playoff round – both went into the playoffs on division winning teams, so to settle the score before the season starts – let’s look at the stats from the OHL, AHL and NHL and see who deserves the ultimate nickname – RAZOR.

Nonis not done!

“The Team 1040″ last night talked to the Vancouver Canucks GM Dave Nonis, he said quote” I may be not done, there is still many things to do, I want to do one more deal , but im not mentioning any names.

Later on in the brodcast the radio announcer said he was looking at the Canucks roster and said there are 2 candidates he thinks are the only 2 remaining players Nonis could trade”Matt Cooke or Brendan Morrison”

The Bruins still have some work to be done…. but how much?

So far Boston has signed three UFAs. All three filled much needed positions. Chara, without question is what Boston needs for the defense. They have Brad Stuart and Paul Mara, thanks to trades, who both can quaterback the powerplay. Savard was brought in to feed Murray the puck. Since Thornton was traded, Murray has basically lost his groove…. Savard was brought in to change that. And Donovan will play the wing with Axelsson and Primeau against other team’s top lines.

But what is left to be done? Well before we get to that, lets see what is already in place.
