Who the Penguins should target.

Instead of the top-line scoring winger we always hear that Pittsburgh needs, I have a slightly different idea:
Target Alex Tanguay, and target him HARD. Get a playmaker to play with Crosby or Malkin who can turn those guys into goal-scoring centers. Tanguay is one of the few star playmaking wingers in the League, and this may just help Crosby offensively pick up those goals.
Also: Target John-Michael Liles.

Leafs give up on Sundin! Armstrong best Leafs Captain Ever!

The wheels have fallen off and this season appears to be gone. Leafs Nation is calling for blood, starting from the top down, or down up, or anything to prove that MLSE wants to win a cup.

Jordan Staal would have his own line, too – a checking line designed to stifle the opposing team’s top player.
