The Maple Leafs are clearly not going to win the cup this year, unless they pull a miracle out of their arse.

Canucks make a deal?

A radio station in Phoenix (Xtra sports 910AM) is reporting that the Canucks have traded for Mike Ricci, Denis Gauthier and Sean O’Donnell in exchange for Ryan Kesler, the rights to Kiril Koltsov and a second round pick.

Lindros is almost a Guarenteed for Tuesday Vs. Washington

The Leafs-Breakfast with Bill Waters on the Fan 590 is reporting that Lindros has had a successful FULL CONTACT practice with the rest of the Team and baring any last minute cancellations from the team doctor is Good to Go Tonight on his 33RD Birthday.

Shane Doan to the Flyers? + Primeau Update

There’s a rumor floating about, that involves the Phoenix Coyates sending Shane Doan and a D-man to the Flyers for R.J. Umberger and Matt Ellison, 1st round pick and two 2nd round picks. But Keith Primeau might hold up this trade.

Cujo, staying or leaving? Opinions?

What Do The Leafs Do?

There has been a rush of these type of articles, some of them credible some of them idiotic, this one will look to set them straight.

Interesting Canuck Stats

The Canucks are, in fantasy, in big trouble.

For Debatable Fan Interest – Belfour for M-A. Poulit (EDM)

This one is mere specualtion on my part. And has no foundation whatsoever.

Now the Finn’s and beating the Russia’s 4-0 now and they are all over the Russia’s to.
