The rangers remain unbeaten

Nearly halfway through the 2006-07 preseason schedule, the Rangers remain unbeaten after beating Florida 3-2 on Saturday night in the first NHL game ever played in Puerto Rico.

My Leafs Healthy Line-up

From what i’ve seen so far, this is what my Leafs line up wwould be:

Sens camp update

The Senators have lost Joe Corvo for 4-6 weeks with a broken foot after blocking a shot late in the Buffalo game. He’ll miss the start of the season, and fans and reporters have not been impressed with Corvo’s play in his own end. Corvo looks out of place, doesn’t seem to have good chemistry with his partner Wade Redden, and makes fans in Ottawa nervous the way he rushes the puck. It could be the start of a long 4 yearsv- is Corvo the new Sens whipping boy?

the usual

Like the past few seasons, Tuomo Ruutu is yet again injured. He suffered a sprained left nknee after taking what the Black Hawk coach Trent Yawney is calling a questionable hit by Rostislav Klesla in the Chicago 5-2 preseason win vs. the Bluejackets. Ruutu is expected to miss 4 weeks with the injury. This was reported on Yahoo as well as dobberhockey.com

The Death of the Fourth Line ?

The Day and Time have come when Hockey Minds should start to think outside the box….

There were alot of improvements last year in the game…

Flyers sign defenseman Oskars Bartulis

According to the Flyers website the Flyers sign defenseman Oskars Bartulis to an entry level contract.

Devils waive McGillis and his $2.2M

Coutesy of the New York Post:

The Devils waived D Dan McGillis yesterday, and if unclaimed his $2.2 million salary likely goes to Lowell. No cap help, though, since he’s not been on the list that is already over the season-opening limit . . . Lou Lamoriello said Patrik Elias, who has missed the last three exhibitions, has a “cold.”

Interest in the West for Jason Allison

A report from XM radio indicated Jason Allison has received some offers from “western conference teams.”

Savage Calls it Quits

TORONTO (CP) – Veteran winger Brian Savage announced his retirement Thursday after 12 NHL seasons.

Devils Madden Hurt!!

The Devils might get through this off season Cap issue without having to make any deals after all. John Madden who makes $3.9 million (although only $2.9 million of it is the cap hit due to a front loaded contract) is yet to play in a pre-season game, participate in team practice, and continues to skate on his own. It has been reported he had off season surgery due to a hernia and might miss considerable time according to the NY Post and Bergen Record.
