With Mats Sundin playing well and the Leafs as a team not playing well it may be to time to trade him. Yes Sundin is playing well but this is the time to unload him because his value will fall.
The Denver Post is speculating about the possible return of Rob Blake to the Avalanche as things have not gone well for him in LA since his return to California.
Frankly, this season is done. Sure the leafs could have an above average second half, make the playoffs and get knocked out in the first round with the team they have, but WHY? So then in 2008-2009 you bring back the same cast of clowns and do it all again, sneak in the playoffs and get crushed by a contending opponent. We must rebuild and now is the perfect time.
Faceoff.com and Spectors trade rumors are reporting that Montreal Canadiens forward Michael Ryder may be on his way to the New York Rangers.
Mlive.com from Detroit is reporting that it is very unlikely that the Red Wings will make a deal for offensive help before the trade deadline.
The Washington Post is reporting that star forward Alex Ovechkin was made to wait before receiving medical treatment from the Penguins medical staff during last nights game.
CJAD is reporting that Carolina Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford is at the habs-panthers game and has been asking about Michael Ryder. He is reportedly a guest at tonights game, according to CJAD in Montreal.
Okay, enough! The Maple Leafs are getting out of hand. I can watch this foolish play night in and night out. Back in the olden days, the Toronto Maple Leafs were a great team. Similiar to a Detroit, and sometimes better than Ottawa. We need that old Leafs tradition back. A solid team that makes the playoffs year by year without question. Here is how to get them back on track. Fire general manager John Ferguson. The Maple Leafs have a very strong organization and they can afford to spend big bucks for a good gm. A gm with much experience and deep hockey roots. Someone remote to who they have now.
A collection of rumors and tidbits from the past week or so from a wide variety of different sources.
“according to TSN”,the new York Islanders have signed prospect Kyle Okposo to a 3-year deal.
The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that the Blue Jackets and the New York Rangers have been in discussion about a possible trade.
The Tampa Bay Lightning have waived goaltender Marc Denis.
Denis has one win in 10 starts this season with a 4.05 goals against average. He has not played in nine of the last 13 games and was a healthy scratch in three of the last 4, losing his spot to rookie Kari Ramo.
Watching the Habs-Lightning game on RDS, like I always do, I couldn’t help but notice that RDS showed 2 former successful NHL coaches in the stands in Tampa. This got me thinking, could this be the end of the loud-mouthed John Tortorella era in Tampa? This is just pure speculation from myself and I do not know if Tortorella is in fact going to get fired.
