Leafs May Have A Shot At Tavares

CBC Sports is reporting that the Islanders may be leaning towards hedman. If this happens the Lightning would then trade their pick for Kaberle and Schenn.

Maple Leafs Draft Day Game Plan

There have been countless proposals & wild speculation in regards to the Maple Leafs draft day strategy however, I would like to take a more logical look at the possibilities.

The Leafs currently hold the 7th overall pick in the upcoming entry draft which is speculated to be the deepest in years. The projected top ten NHL hopefulls all show the potential to be a solid building block for their respected NHL clubs.

Possible Coaching replacements if the Flames can Keenan

The Calgary Sun is reporting that if the Flames are not able to pry Brent Sutter out of the Devils a good fit to coach the Flames (who have not fired Keenan) would be Jacques Lemaire.

Some opinions on the Leafs…

1) Seriously, their are many talks about the Leafs going for number one getting John Tavares with the number one talk. Why wouldn’t they be talking about it? He’s the best player in the draft, the hometown boy, and his favorite team are the Leafs. Heck, its similar to when everyone believed Sydney Crosby should play for the Habs a few years back.

Markus Naslund to retire

Various sources are reporting that New York Rangers veteran Markus Naslund is going to forgo the final year of his contract and is going to retire from hockey.

Caps vs Pens

Well this just might be the most exciting series in this years playoffs. Two power house offensive teams going at only to get to the conference final.

leafs possible moves this off season

this off season weve all heard alot of speculation about what brian burke might have up his sleeve, but lets get some of your opinions.

when i think of the leafs roster i think of a team in need of alot of changes, basicly been in rebuild mode since the late 60s with little to no accomplishment to date,

How to fix the Sharks?

With the Sharks ending another terrific regular season with another extremely disappointing playoffs, the topic of “whats wrong with the Sharks” has been a pretty popular one amongst the hockey community. Everyone has a different opinion as to what the reason is, whether its no heart, Joe Thornton, coaching etc.

So what I thought might be fun is, what would you do to fix the Sharks? What trades would rectify their playoff failure? Or is it something else.

The amount of crap Joe Thornton takes is ridiculous

He led his team in playoff scoring, had as many points as the 2nd and 3rd highest paid forwards on his team combined in the post season, and finished with 5 points in 6 games playing against a team whose defense led them to a Stanley Cup win two years ago. If this is any player but Joe Thornton, this isn’t even a story.
