Chemistry is a funny thing!

Chemistry is a funny and at times, a fragile thing. It kind of follows the mob mentality where people will do things while in a group that they would never do if they were on their own. Like a snowball going downhill, whatever is affecting that chemistry will grow!

Some teams looking for goalies, who's out there?

There are several teams who maybe looking at bringing in some help in goal before the deadline. Here’s a look at some of these teams, and some goalies who may be available:

(Includes cap hit and contract status)

Ducks likely to trade Pronger

TSN’s Bob McKenzie believes that it is a good bet that the Ducks will trade Pronger at some point in the near future. If Pronger is not traded before March fourth it is likely that he will be traded in the summer.

Oillers trying to make a move

The Edmonton Journal is reporting that the Oilers are in search of a winger for Ales Hemsky and some of the names that are mentioned include Tim Connoly, Martin St., Louis, Slava Kozlov and Milan Hejduk.

Bruins very likely to make a deadline move

The Boston Herald is reporting that Peter Chiarelli is very likely to swing a deadline move to try to improve the Bruins.

Possible Deadline Deals

I was reading some articles on possible deadline deals and i came up with some realistic scenarios. Please comment and tell me what you think

John Tortorella Rangers New Coach!

The New York Rangers have found the man to replace Tom Renney. That man is John Tortorella. John signed a contract with the New York Rangers today to be the new Head Coach.

Leaf Trade Offer

During the broadcast of an nhl game on tsn, Pierre Mcguire stated that burke has made it known that another gm offered him a lottery pick in this years draft for defenceman Luke Schenn,

Burke turned down this trade and i am willing to bet that the gm was Brian Lawton of the lightning. The lightning are in desperate need of defence and i cannot see Burke turning down this deal from Atlanta or New York who are in position to pick Victor Hedman and John Tavaras.
