NHL Bargain Players (Part 1)

In the new NHL, bargain players can make or break a team. Who is the best bargain player today?

Here is a list of who, in my opinion is each team’s bargain player up to the mid-way point of the NHL season…

Done Deal – Sykora to the Rangers

The New York Rangers have accquired Petr Sykora and a fourth-round pick from the Mighty Ducks in exchange for Maxim Kondratiev. That explains why he was a healthy scratch in his last game.

Calder Race – Head to Head

There is so much talk regarding the likes of Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin, and who will be the winner of this years Calder Trophy.

There are so many people who like to bash Sidney Crosby (for some reason), and put Ovechkin on some sort of pedastel.

Something brewing…

Vancouver and Montreal are up to something… No really good leaks yet as to the exact players, but something is in the works.

Yesterday was a very busy day for the two. Steve Tambellini of the Canucks and Bob Gainey of the Canadiens met at the Manitoba Moose-Hamilton Bulldogs game (the clubs respective farm teams) and at the Canucks-Flames games there were a total of 8 (count them… 8!) Montreal scouts in attendance. Both these have been confirmed (radio for source… sorry, no link).

Deal in the works? Rob Blake a healthy scratch vs. Minnesota

Canada wins gold!

Canada just won gold, 5-0 over the ‘dominant’, ‘powerhouse’ Russians. The win didn’t surprise me. Canada’s strong, gritty play didn’t surprise me. It was all the doubting that people did of Canada that confused me. Watching the tournament, a couple of people on this board should be very excited about who is coming up from the minors.
