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…

1 QUARTER DOWN AND KINGS DOMINATING

The 2005-06 season is 1 quarter over and the LA Kings are 1st in a very tight Pacific division and 2nd in the Western Conference (one point behind 1st place Detroit). What is the reason behind the LA Kings success?

Blackhawks coach might be responsible for team's poor performances.

I’m not and have never been a Chicago Blackhawks fan but what got me thinking about this article was that I picked Tyler Arnason in one hockey pool. He’s having a slow start as well as the team so it got me wondering why there weren’t any guys making points at all in this team…

Sykora's bill too much for Anaheim

The Anaheim Mighty Ducks are reportedly shopping RW Petr Sykora. Sportsnet reported last night that GM Brian Burke did not rule out Sykora’s availability and what fuels the rumor even more is that Sykora is not in the Ducks line-up tonight against the Coyotes. There are no teams rumored to be interested as of now which leads me to believe he may just be a healthy scratch. But with Getzlaf and Perry sent to the AHL yesterday, this story is heating up quickly that a deal could be done or close to it.

Too Much Depth?

With a month to go before decision time which players will be able to play their way onto the team, which ones will play their way off of it and who`s a lock? Injuries are as of yet not a major problem, but a month could change that. Long story short, who`s going to make up Team Canada for the 2006 Games?
