Team Sweden Finally Captures Gold

Today Team Sweden of the Olympics beat Team

Finland to capture the men’s hockey gold medal.

In a shocker there were many Canadian fans cheering on Team Sweden. As we look forward to

Vancouver 2010 can Sweden repeat?

Pat Quinn and his coaching ways

Now that the Olympics, I wonder if the Leafs will make a coaching move either soon or after the season. As a Leaf and Canadian hockey fan, coaching has been a huge issue with both teams due to Pat Quinn’s coaching decisions.

Another Lindros-Blockbuster ?

From Eklund’s Blog:

There is something very interesting brewing. With Malkin`s stock rising exponentially as a result of his Olympic play, I talked to a person on the inside of that situation that confirmed there are whispers, just whispers at this point, that Pittsburgh may get “A Lindros-esque bidding war going for Malkin at the deadline.”

Interview with the Insider

I’ve conducted an interview with “The Insider” at, I have a couple more interviews with top hockey bloggers/writers to do, that I will try to conduct soon, and there are a few more people I have yet to get, but here’s “The Insider” who had some interesting things to say.

Remembering the 2002 Olympics

The 2002 Winter Olympics were special, and it was the one year where the Olympic results really showed how good a hockey country you were… ok with the exception of Belarus… and you could prolly switch places for the USA, and Russia, but does everyone remember what a fun tournament that was?

Looks like Sweden and Finland for Gold

I was pretty shocked today when i got home that Sweden blow out the Czech Republic 7-3 today.

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

The thing about the Olympic hockey team…

I really am getting tired of people making excuses for Canada’s Olympic team. The better team won, the better hockey country? No. The better team, yes. The team was filled with what a guy on the radio called “FOGs” friends of Gretzky’s.

Sens May Have To Trade For Lalime?

When I read this article I just laughed over and over and then thought about how funny it would be if this actually happened! How would Sens fans feel if this happened? Still feel confident about winning the Cup? How confident are you about beating the Leafs even? (In the Playoffs)…Well since I am still laughing it is hard to type so I will let you all write whatever you wish about this subject/story. Paragraph below is the Article and the Link if you wish to read a bit more about it and also some other NHL material.

Malkin suspended for semifinals

According to…

Russian forward Evgeni Malkin has been suspended for tomorrow’s semifinal matchup against Finland for trying to kick Vincent Lecavalier in yesterday’s game against Canada with 61 seconds left.

Leafs Post-Olympic Report Card

After the Olympic break how are the Leafs doing, how are their players and management doing? I

have compiled a report card to show you:

Changes To Come In LEAFland!

Are there changes to come in Maple Leaf country?

Their very well could be in the wake of the Olympic debacle. Everyone knows that the Toronto Maple Leafs are in trouble. What else is new? But what we don’t know is what is going to happen for the future. All we can guess is that changes are looming for the LEAFS organization, maybe moreso than just the players.

Enough of What the Leafs should do articles…Please!!

It’s been a long time since I have posted an article, and I felt it was time for me to address something, as a Leaf fan, that is driving me (and who knows how many others) nuts for quite some time.

Vancouver 2010 Canadian Mens Olympic Hockey

I know it’s been a hard day for Canadian hockey fans. So I would like to look forward to the 2010 games in VANCOUVER CANADA.

Keith Primeau's season over

According to

Keith Primeau will be making his decision has to when he will annouce he will not be coming back this season. We all know Clarke gave him until the end of the Olympics.

Leafs to make McCabe Last offer.

The Leafs will make one last offer to Brian McCabe worth 5.5 million per season (4 years)

If McCabe does reject this offer, I am told he will be traded by the deadline.

What JFJ should do!

First of all, dont count the Leafs out of the playoffs yet. They need to trim the fat. Ship players to playoff bound teams looking for depth. Move Allison, Berg, Belak, Khavanov, Klee, Czerkawski, all for draft picks before they go as free agents next season. Trade Antropov and Stajan to Chicago for Arnason and Bell. Bring up the youngsters on defence (they cant do any worse than the veterans). Sink or swim with this team until next season.
