Brian Burke has succeeded in luring François Allaire to Toronto to be the Leafs Goaltending Consultant/Coach. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=281479
According to an interview on CKAC (a french, Montreal-based, all-sports radio station), Allaire had been mulling over the idea of moving back east for the last 2 years so as to be closer to his family. Anaheim offered him a contract extension at the end of this past season, but he declined the offer and let the Ducks organization know of his wishes to move closer to home.
So here’s something that really gets to me.. Yea I’m not liking what Heatley’s doing, but what was management thinking when they gave him the “A”, permanently?! I remember watching the first or second game since he’d been promoted; with that fancy letter on his jersey he started it off with an undisciplined 10 minute misconduct cross-check to a player the opposing team… In a close loss if I remember it right..
Rumours fly following Heatley’s alleged trade request
Pens will be in market for blueliner
Jacques Demers: selling a Vinny trade to fans would be difficult but doable
So it all comes down to one game.
I am at a place where I have ZERO idea who is going to win. The teams have flip flopped so much. If the pattern persists, the wings will take it. Can the Pens pull a miracle out of the hat and break their dreaded Joe Louis curse?
What are everyone’s thoughts?
The Flyers will hold a press conference Wednesday at 11 a.m., at which time general manager Paul Holmgren will announce the team has a one-year contract agreement with goalie Ray Emery.
The press conference can be seen live on CSNPhilly.com and Comcast SportsNet.
The deal is reported to be worth an estimated $1.5 million, however the team cannot officially sign Emery until July 1. Emery flew from Ottawa into Philadelphia on Tuesday night while his agent, J.P. Barry, attended Game 6 of the Stanely Cup Final. Barry is expected to fly to Philadelphia in Wednesday morning.
As per the Ottawa Sun:
“Two league sources confirmed to Sun Media this morning that Heatley has informed Ottawa GM Bryan Murray he’d like to be dealt. It’s believed Heatley has a rocky relationship with coach Cory Clouston and would like to be moved so that he can get more an opportunity to play.”
This is a rumor I came across while routinely surfing the net.
Darren Dreger of TSN apparently reported on the air that NY Rangers GM Glen Sather has made an offer to the Maple Leafs’ Brian Burke as follows:
To Toronto: Wade Redden, Brandon Dubinsky, and Marc Staal
To New York: Tomas Kaberle, Anton Stralman, and this year’s first round (7th overall) pick
