Some Not so Hot prospects

Some people out there have a really limited view on the NHL, and mostly all they see is their team, and how crappy the Toronto Maple Leafs are. Well, I decided to compile a list of “hot” prospects they have who really have amounted to absolutely nothing thus far.

If the Awards Were Handed Out Today

This is just a personal and opinionated speculation on NHL Awards, and if they were to be handed out today.

Havlat On His Way Out?

Spectorshockey.net and hockeyleaks.com are both reporting that Martin Havlat could be dealt by Ottawa when he returns from his suspension. Hockeyleaks listed Carolina and St.Louis as two teams that are interested. Erik Cole and Barrett Jackman are two player names mentioned

Antropov on the block, again!!!!

The Toronto Sun is reporting that the Nik Antropov for Brendan Witt rumor is heating up again and a deal could be done as soon as Nik’s healthy.

TexCan's Weekly Slap Shots Vol. 1 Issue 3 *New*

There are 3 un-winnable arguments in this world:

1. Gender Equality – Why is it always the woman who could pass as the love child of Rik O’ Casek and Olive Oyl that wants to protest by baring her breasts in public. Why is it never the lithe, underwear models with low self esteem that want to show their Casey and Finegans’s in public. . (Hey! It’s my first Mr. Dressup reference! Question: Would a middle age, single dude with something called a tickle trunk in his closet be allowed to keep a little kid with creepy rosy cheeks in this day and age?)

2. Politics – Your white, privileged, corporate whore, who’s drunk and fat on campaign contributions who has his best interests at heart is a an unwashed heathen but my white privileged, corporate whore, who’s drunk and fat on campaign contributions who has his best interests at heart is a man of great conviction. (These guys are on extended warranty sale away from working at Best Buy)

3. My Team is better then your team.

Penguins to fire coach?

Rumor has it that Penguins coach Eddie Olczyk will be the first head coach to be fired this season.

Bourque, again Bruins savior?

Bruins fans, 8 games into the season, I would say are a little disappointed.

The free agent period offered many signs of optimism. Joe Thornton was signed to a three year deal and Sergie Samsonov will have a year to prove he should stay long term. The blue line was bolstered with a future hall of famer in Brian Leetch. They also signed former fan favorites in Travis Green and Shawn McEachern. Finally, an abundance of youth were ready to make their mark in the new NHL.

Your say: who's the worst player in the league

Now I know what you are thinking, not another rant.. but this time, everyone would like to hear your opinion!!

Janne Niinimaa on the block, Habs moving ?

Janne Niinimaa is rumored to be on the trading block since he is unable to get a point with the Islanders yet.

Havlat gets 5

Where Are the Doubters? Biting Their Tongues

October 16, 2005

by Bardia Sinaee (HockeyNations.com – HockeyLeaks.com)

(TORONTO, ON) – There are two things in common between, Jason Allison, Eric Lindros, Jeff O’Neill, and the Toronto Maple Leafs: they all had some serious doubters, and, they have all proved them wrong in this past week.

Atlanta looking to add a goalie?

With injuries to their top 3 goalies so early in the season, there are whispers in Atlanta about Potvin, or Biron coming to the Thrashers.

Havlat has to be SUSPENDED.

TSN.ca is reporting

Sources say the NHL is reviewing a kicking incident last night in the Ottawa-Boston game at the Corel Centre. Havlat, after being knocked into the back of the net, kicked Boston defenceman Hal Gill. A suspension is expected.

Should Turin 06 Mark the Changing of the Guard for Canada

Everyone is making the early opinion on how the season is going to go. So I figured I would start the debate for who could be playing for team Canada in Turin, Italy. I am going to limit my selection to younger players, cause I feel that this is the Olympics where we leave behind the likes of Lemieux, Sakic, Yzerman, Blake. Take a younger team and show the world that we will continue to dominate our sport for years to come.

Brett Hull to retire

Brett Hull will announce his retirement from the Coyotes at a press conference in Phoenix this evening.
