Time for a change

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’.

Hurricanes dealt blow

According to tsn.ca Eric Cole was badly injured in a hit by Orpik in last night’s game vs. Pittsburg

Blockbuster for Luongo

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.

A Factual Case for Rebuilding the LEAFS

If Toronto kept their draft picks -

Eagle to Edmonton?

The Toronto Star Reported today that the Edmonton Oilers may be interested in Belfour.

It is NOT the time to rebuild

People are saying that the Leafs should blow it up, and start again. Total bull shit. If the Leafs don’t win the Stanley Cup this year, which is just about impossible, it will be the third longest droubt in NHL history, and if Chicago wins before 2017 and we don’t, it will be the longest.

Could Bertuzzi be heading to the Flyers?

A report in the Courier Post is claiming another Flyers rumor, and this one involves Todd Bertuzzi.

Tributes to Al MacInnis

I just read on St.Louis website that they are

hanging up one the jersey of the best d-man ever to play the game of hockey on April 9th Al Maclnnis.

Burtuzzi and Brashear

In light of the suspention of Donald Brashear for his hit on Darius Kasparaitis it got me very steamed over people reactions to that incedent. What Brashear did was as brutal in action and even less motivated than the Burtuzzi hit on Moore.

Leafs must seiz the Oppurtunity

The Toronto Maple Leafs go into tonights game knowing they are in 11th, they’re only a point back from nineth, and they’ve got a game in hand on the teams in 9th and 10th, but 5 points back of Montreal, who has a game in hand. My belief, tonights game will be great.

Time To Make a Choice!

The Leafs have fallen to eleventh place in the Eastern conference and are 5 points out of the last and final playoff spot (note: I am writing this article the night of the loss to the Sabers). The Leafs haven’t won a cup since 1967, and at the rate their going it’ll remain that way for the next few decades.

Boucher Re-signed for 3 years

According to TSN.ca, Philippe Boucher was re-signed today to a 3-year contract extension, at $2.5 million a year.

Oilers Will Be Active!

The Edmonton Sun is reporting that Oilers GM, Kevin Lowe will 100% pull of a few trades before or at the deadline. He is not saying any names but he has said the Oil are in the market for a goaltender, good second line scoring, and a veteran who can help the fourth line.

The CH still looking at Bertuzzi ?

The online web site of the french newspaper La presse is currently running the story that the Montreal Canadiens are still looking to grab Todd Bertuzzi from the Vancouver Canucks.

Owen Nolan Not Coming Back!

I have just learned that Owen Nolan will not be coming back to the NHL this year! He underwent knee surgery a few months ago and has recovered to about 99%. When he comes back he wants to make sure he will be at 100%, so he won’t get injured again.
