So now that the Sundin ball has finally dropped and Leaf fans further get the impression that this ship is only weeks from sinking, let’s take a look at what some of the moves the Leafs can make and some of the players that they will be letting lose.
To start, Brian Burke made a statement that similar to how he did it in Anaheim with the Ducks, he wants to build a strong defensive team, with a great goaltender. He also likes the idea of two strong scoring lines and two checking lines.
Ohhhhhh someone looks stupid. But come on… Sundin picks the Canucks? I mean… the Canucks? after he lied to everyone and says “money isn’t a factor?” wow… WOOOWWW who would have seen this coming. Sad way to come back to the NHL. He’ll be lost up in Vancouver.
Rangers are mostly to blame, but out of all players…
SUNDIN FOLLOWED THE MONEY, NOT HIS HEART…. and that’s just sad to see.
Poor Dallas Stars. 14th in the Western Conference, 30 points in 31 games (although only 3 points out of 8th seed). It’s disappointing for a team tagged as a potential Stanley Cup contender. After learning that their captain Brendan Morrow was out for the year with a torn knee ligament, Sergei Zubov is just going under hip surgery and will miss 6 months. The 2 best players of this team are now out for the year, so it’s obviously a huge blow. But it’s maybe not as bad as it seems. By putting these 2 players on the LITR, Dallas frees up to 10 million dollars on the cap. That’s a lot of money, and it will allow them to make a couple moves to get some assets needed to take them to the other level.
The frenzy has begun for University of Denver centre-man Tyler Bozak. According to Bozak’s advisor 26 NHL teams have expressed interest in signing the 22 year old including all 6 Canadian teams.
It’s a done deal. According to TSN.ca the Canucks have signed Sundin to a one year contract.
