I know this is primarily a Leaf’s wishful thinking website but I’d like to recognize the fact that the greatest Canuck has retired today. Linden was often the best thing about a team that has often broken many hearts. He still had a bit of life in him but it’s good he went out like he did. No cup but still one of the great’s. On and off the ice. Hopefully and most likely he’ll join the team’s management in some form or other. Here’s to you Linden! Cheers.
After winning the championship in 2003, using their textbook trap to a tee, the New Jersey Devils have struggled to put together a good playoff since and once again are left to find answers on how to get back to the next level.
ST. PAUL, Minn. – “The Minnesota Wild have acquired defenceman Marc-Andre Bergeron from the Anaheim Ducks for a third-round pick in this year’s NHL draft.
Bergeron, 27, had 19 points in 55 games last season with Anaheim and the New York Islanders.
There are rumors from everyone’s best friend Eklund, about some ‘ Major Trade’ going down between florida and a western team.
I’m NOT writing this article for people to start bashing the validity of the rumor, but am writing it, cause i’m looking for some panther fans to help me out !
For the last couple of seasons the New York Rangers were on the verge of breaking loose reaching the second round of the playoffs in both years only to fall short each time. They ended up losing to teams who were deeper, faster and more skilled and once again are left now with questions on how to take things to the next level.
CBC has reported that Ron Wilson has agreed to a four-year, $5.6-million contract. The Leafs will announce Tuesday that recently fired head coach by the San Jose Sharks, has agreed to a long-term deal. Wilson will be the 27th Toronto Maple Leafs coach in franchise history. This raises speculation Anaheim Ducks general manager Brian Burke won’t be far behind.
According to a report from the Toronto star and TSN, the Nhl has again denied Jim Balsillie in another attempt to buy an NHL team. Balsillie was attempting to buy Nashville Predators minority owner William Del Biaggio’s 27 percent share so that Del Biaggio could liquidate his assets.
The league has claimed that other owners in the league have to support a potential owners campaign for ownership and the deputy commisioner Bill Daly said this was the case.
I’ll get right to the point. This is the lineup I see the Habs needing in order to bring home Stanley!
Philadelphia Flyers announce on their homepage at www.philadelphiaflyers.com that they have acquired 5’11”, 200-pound defenseman Danny Syvret (SIHV-reht) from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for forward Ryan Potulny. I think this is a good move for both clubs as Potulny wasn’t going to make it up the depth charts on a already deep team.
My Top 30 Prospects for the 2008 NHL Draft
1. Steven Stamkos
Trying to locate a flaw in Stamkos’ game is akin to finding a golf ball in a snowstorm. Stamkos does everything at high speed and elevates his game in more important contests. He took his game to another level in the playoffs.
Ok. So I tried to figure out just how the leafs could blow up their team. What kind of options do they really have. In a cap world things are so much harder to actually pull off. So I put a big list together. Now I am not nieve enough to believe that it could all happen this way. This was just something I was having fun with and I got caught up crunching numbers.
It looks like the search for the Leafs vacant head coaching job is nearing its end as Toronto has apparentley given Ron Wilson an offer to become the 27th coach in franchise history.
Sami Kapanen has announced his retirement from the NHL reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. Sami has demonstrated nothing but class during his time in the NHL and is highly respected among Flyer fans. He is on of those few players that brings his best every game and leaves nothing on the ice. He is exactly the kind of player that Philly fans have come to love over the years, a guy who plays with heart and determination. He will be missed! He has been one of my favorite Flyers since he arrived in 2003.
