The Great Dao of Steve

As we know, Steve Yzerman, along with a handful of great superstar veterans have been struggling with this new NHL format. That being said, Detroit Red Wing captain; Steve Yzerman has a tough decision to make.

Ozolinsh a Hab?

Team 990 reports that Montreal Canadiens might be looking to get a hand on Sandis Ozolinsh of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. Could be logic, Souray is out with injury, Markov is suspended, and Komisarek is out for family problems, and now Ron Hainsey is gone to Columbus.

Ron Hainsey Wears a Blue Jacket.

In the wake of the 3 game suspension to Andrei Markov for abuse of an official the Montreal Canadiens decided to call up defenseman Ron Hainsey. Upon calling up Hainsey, he would have had to have cleared re-entry waivers to play for the Montreal Canadiens, but he did not. Today the Montreal Canadiens lost young defenseman Ron Hainsey on waivers to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

A Choice of Youngsters

Me and a someone I know (a Bruin’s fan) have had a debate as to who is a better player to have on your team/to build a team around: Kyle Wellwood or Patrice Bergeron. I’m curious to see everyone’s thoughts especially from non Leaf or Bruin fans. I’ve included some stats.:)

McEachern and Thibault????? put on waivers

Bruins waive McEachern

November 28 @ 2:24 AM

The Boston Bruins have place veteran forward Sean McEachern on waivers. McEachern signed a two-year deal at $1 million per season to join the Bruins following the NHL lockout.

Lack of officiating consistency

I have been a fan of the NHL since 1990. However, I am questioning my commitment to the league because of deplorable officiating. During the 10 years of clutch and grab hockey, the officiating, for the most part, was consistent. You knew that only the most egregious infractions were going to be called because refs did not bother to call borderline infractions. In this year’s rendition of the NHL, one does not know what the refs are going to be like from game to game. The prime example was last night’s game between Montreal and Toronto.

Another 1st Round Exit?

The New York Islanders have been knocked out of the NHL playoffs, in the first round, the past two seasons. Many people feel it will happen for a third straight season this year.

15 ROUND KNOCK OUT

GREATEST SHOOTOUT GOAL SO FAR.

What an amazing win by the Rangers in a 15 round shoot out against Washington. Malik put’s in a highlight goal more amazing then any of Crosby’s goals so far.

After watching this shootout, it truly has shown why it might save hockey. The most exciting thing in the NHL is shootout hockey, and so far… Malk’s goal is the best ever to be scored in a NHL shootout.

What other’s are up there?

Loonisizm with Leafy: This and that Edition

Is Dick Pound accurate? Or is he blowing smoke? Trade rumors, fact or fiction? Refs favoring home teams? CuJo the best goalie in hockey? My Olympic team, and Wayne Primeau… a hell of a guy.

Quarter-Point Awards

Here are my quarter-of-the-season point NHL Awards:

Sophomore Jinx or Lucky Rookie Year?

The Boston Bruins, picked by many to be one of the top teams in the tough Eastern Conference, have been in a major tailspin over the past 10 games and don’t appear to be coming out any time soon, regardless of their recent 5-1 victory over the Maple Leafs.

Bargain Basement Beauties

Here are Pat Hickey’s (Montreal Gazette) ten best bargains in the NHL, value for the buck, in no particular order;

Guys who don't belong in the NHL

Did anyone catch what the motivation for Fedorek’s hit on Nedved was? Who did he say he had a problem with?? Was it Nedved??? I need a platform to get this off my chest and to see how others feel about this problem. Last night I was at the Coyotes/Anaheim game. Good game. Probably the most hits I’ve seen in one game this season. My problem comes with the Fedorek hit and his motivation behind it. Let me explain…
