For weeks now, Detroit GM Ken Holland has been publicly saying that his goaltending is good enough. Even if the public is telling him he’s wrong. Holland feels that the Wings do not need an upgrade on Chris Osgood & Ty Conklin. So the question is – Is he right? Are the Wings tenders okay?
Pierre Lebrun is reporting on a ton of rumors, many of them are the same as what HTR has published, but a new rumor that is mentioned is that the Penguins may be looking to awing a deal with the Senators for Jarkku Ruutu, who left the Penguins last season to sign with the Senators.
TheStar.com is reporting that “Marty St. Louis, rather than Vinny Lecavalier, may be the Tampa Bay Lightning star that could be on the move.” + HTR provides a tidbit on Alex Burrows.

This is my second post here. I had no choice but to leave my opinion about Maple Leaf Fans.
First of, I am a Die Hart Leaf fan my self, It make me sick to read comment from people who have no idea about hockey, complaining about What Brian Burk should do, How much they hate Brian Burk because what he said on his interviews.
Dominic Moore will likely be moved by the trade deadline. It has been said Moore’s agent and Burke were disputing over Moore’s salary. It has been rumoured Moore asked for $2.75 million a year for 2 or 3 years.
