I would just like to comment on the up and comers of the NHL.
Once upon a time you could count Atlanta, Tampa, Florida, Calgary, and to a lesser extent the San Jose Sharks as two free points on the calender. Well fellas it’s safe to say you can’t count on those guaranteed points anymore.
“The New York Rangers have not made the playoffs in the last 7 years, and throughout these 7 years the Rangers were acquiring veterans that were past there prime, players like Lindros, Bure, Messier. And finally the Rangers have a new approach.
Carolina have today further demonstrated their interest in injured superstar center Jason Allison, requesting him in Raleigh to undergo medical examinations in light of his injury-riddled past. This puts the Canes in the running with the Edmonton Oilers in the race to get his signature. Allison’s agent has stated that he would have a real interest in playing for the Hurricanes. The most difficult part for these teams interested in Allison though, will be gauging a salary agreement, considering his massive injury history weighed up against the stellar numbers he posted last time he was playing.
It’s off season. Leaves all of us a lot of time to think about hockey, without anything new going on.
So, here is my list of the NHL’s ALL TIME best uniforms.
I’m sure yours will follow…
The Rangers after 8 years of spending big cash on aging veteran players, they have finally decided to end the madness and start from scratch. They are now focused on building through the draft and giving the chance for their young prospects to play and rebuild the entire organization.
To all those who have read the Brett Hull is as good as a star rumors, it wont happen, at least not until after Tuesday.
TSN reports that Brett Hull is set to sign a one year deal with Dallas worth $2.2 million. Hull’s agent says the Stars are “serious about getting Hull.” Armstrong, Tippet, Hull and Hull’s agent are set to meet sometime next week to discuss a contract.
The Rangers have found a way to split their 3 top goalie prospects time apart and still have a starting goalie with Duhnam.
The question is who out of Lundquest, Blackburn, and Montoya will get a shot at number 1 in the 2005-2006 season?
According to StlToday.com the St. Louis Blues have re-signed norris trrophy winning defensemen Chris Pronger to a 1 year $10 million dollar contract.
Below are sets of players going one on one with each other. Who do you feel will win?
Below is 15 NHL players that I believe will be most valuable for the next 5 years.
(Ranked from best to worst)
The Vancouver Canucks announced Tuesday that the club has re-signed forward Brendan Morrison to a one-year contract worth $3.55 million US.
Being a former Jr. goaltender, I thought it would be cool to pay homage to some of the most underated goalies I’ve seen past and present.
I’m sure, you will have a ton of your own opinions.
Hockey Canada confirmed Monday that Rob Blake would not be able to play in the World Cup of Hockey with an official announcement on Tuesday.
The Vancouver Canucks avoided arbitration with goaltender Dan Cloutier, signing him to a one-year, $3 million deal.
Cloutier, who earned $2.5 million last year, tied a career high with 33 wins last season, while posting a 2.27 goals-against average and .914 save percentage.
Today’s edition of the Finnish sport’s magazine Veikkajaa(a really poor version of Hockey News)

Sather is starting to show activity. He just anounced the signings of Jason Strudwick and Trevor Gillies.
