My first post on this site, on any site to be honest. I just have to…I sit here and read all of your opinions on the Thornton trade and just cant resist. Is it really that bad for Boston???
After dropping four straight and struggling with consistency on what was supposed to be an offensively explosive team, something has to be up GM Craig Patrick’s sleeve. Anybody remember the good ole days in the 90’s when Patrick would pull off a blockbuster trade at unexpected times, most of which the Pens would benefit greatly (please exclude Marcus Naslund to the Canucks for Alex Stojanov and a decade of regret, enough said) Pittsburgh seemed to always bring in players with a lot of potential or who were struggling, either way simply in need of a new home where more opportunity lay ahead of them. I’m talking about guys like Francis, Tocchet, Kovalev, etc.
TSN.ca reports that the Florida Panthers have traded Kristian Huselius to the Calgary Flames.
With the addition of two marquee defensman, and one of the top three players in hockey, the Flyers were the early favorite to win the Stanley Cup this season, but injuries, poor special teams, and lack of a Captain has tarnished that early vision of success
The crazy sepratist party of Canada who is holding the goverment hostage for it’s laughable cause has made another suggestion. This isn’t about my political views on the Bloc Quebecois threatening to leave until we give them more money. This is about Gilles Duceppe, local genius, and loon, proposing that Quebec have it’s own National Hockey team…
According to Hockeyleaks.com and Sportsnet.ca, Karel Pilar has had another set back with his heart, and will not play this season in Toronto. He hopes to return to Europe and play in a few months, and hopes to return to the Leafs for next season.
The Boston Bruins have traded Joe Thornton to the San Jose Sharks for Marco Sturm, Brad Stuart and Wayne Primeau. Details to follow…
While we have many topics about the usual suspects and the Ovechkin/Crosby debate rages on, the Nashville Predators are quietly being one the biggest success stories in the league this season.
As reported on TSN.ca;
The Columbus Blue Jackets claimed defenceman Ron Hainsey from the Montreal Canadiens on re-entry waivers, plucking away their first-round pick from the 2000 Entry Draft.
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.
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.
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.
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.:)
