Okay, take this for exactly what it is, a rumour.
Phoenix has been knocking on Toronto’s door recently, and now seems to be stepping up into the Ed Belfour talk. It appears as though Phoenix is seriously trying to get Ed Belfour from Toronto, and has a package of players that they would be willing to move, in exchange for the right pieces from the Maple Leafs. Reports out of Phoenix are indicating that the Coyotes would ship Mike Comrie, Curtis Joseph, and one of either Paul Mara or Derek Morris to Toronto, but their list of demands is high. In return, the ‘Yotes want Belfour, along with two young bright spots in Toronto’s depth charts, Kyle Wellwood and Andy Wozniewski.
I grew up watching Leafs games with my father. We went to games whenever we could afford/find tickets, we watched the games while he called business clients and I did my homework and we got dressed up in our best blue and whites every playoff game.
As deadline day approaches, now only three more days, all of us hockey fans and sitting back and patiently waiting for our favorite NHL team to pull the trigger. With all the big names floating around we all crave that speedy cener to fill out our top line or that rugged 6’0+ Defensman to step in and lead our core. I’ve been sitting back here for days now, watching Leaf fans (and other teams as well) post their fantasy deadline deals and rumors that they want to become reality. So I thought…. this would be a great time to make my first post on HTR. I felt the need to post what I want my favorite team to do on deadline day. If anybody read or payed any attention to my (sometimes dumb) comments, you would probably know that my favorite team is the Montreal Canadiens.
According to the Toronto Star, Eddie Belfour’s days, as have been speculated, may be over.
The Olympic break is over, and the trade deadline is March 9th. Here are some available commodities and rumors – from a fantasy perspective of course.
And from a 2 week delay, heres the next Mighty Ducks report for this weeks action.
There are two scenarios that the Leafs could be in by the NHL trade deadline on March 9th. If they beat Montreal on Tuesday, they will be 5 points out of the final playoffs spot. They will be buyers, if they lose to Montreal on Tuesday they will be 9 points out of the last playoff spot, then they will be sellers.
TORONTO (AP) – Maple Leafs forward Eric Lindros will undergo surgery after tearing a ligament in his right wrist Saturday against the Ottawa Senators.
According to Sportsnet West (Edmonton Oiler’s Broadcast), the Edmonton Oilers have signed former Oiler forward Rem Murray. Terms undisclosed……He is suiting up with the Oil against the Nashville Predators today.
If we beat Montreal we are 5 points out, and then Ferguson will likely be a buyer, if we lose and fall 9 points out, then theres going to be an auction selling McCabe, Belfour, and Allison
There are a few teams in a state of panic. I’m going to try to show how I’d build each of those teams to be champions if I were the GM, I’d like to start with my favorite team, the Toronto Maple Leafs.
I’ll start by stating that I am a leafs fan, and, as such have accepted the fact that times have changed and this means the Leafs need to be overhauled for the ‘New NHL’.
According to tsn.ca Eric Cole was badly injured in a hit by Orpik in last night’s game vs. Pittsburg
With the March trade deadline vastly approaching, rumors from around the league continue to persist. One very interesting one sees Los Angeles Kings GM Dave Taylor pulling off a blockbuster to pry Roberto Luongo away from Florida. It is said, that GM Mike Keenan would not let him go cheap and wants high-end forwards, a top 4 defenseman and a goalie in return.
The Minnesota Wild have claimed winger, Mattias
Weinhandl of waivers from the New York Islanders.
Weinhandl played in 53 games for the Isles this year and has 2 goals, 4 assists and 14 penalty minutes.
There are alot of guys who’ll be available at the deadline. Them not being traded by now just means this’ll be the most exciting March 9th in a long time! So who’s going where??
In this week’s facing off with Al Morganti, Keith Jones and Al chatted about who they thought has a good chance of landing in Philly based on the flyer’s needs and what is out there…
The Toronto Star Reported today that the Edmonton Oilers may be interested in Belfour.
