Bure retired on Tuesday and has been chosen to be the general manager of Russia’s Olympic hockey team, the Associated Press reports.
The Buffalo Sabres were dealt another tough blow by the injury bug. With Taylor Pyatt out with a concussion and Toni Lydman out with a groin problem, the last thing they needed was a goaltending injury. Starting goaltender Ryan Miller broke his thumb during the gameday skate before Wednesday night’s game against Ottawa. The broken thumb is on his left hand (his blocker and stick hand) so it might be less severe than an injury to his glove hand. He is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.
How does one continue to look at the glass half full when it contiues to leak out the bottom? That is the question I want to put in front of so called die hard fans.
The Pittsburgh Penguins had a lot of difficulties since the start of the season, Jocelyn Thibault have the worst stats of the league and the Pens aren’t expected to make the playoffs if they don’t make a change now. Could Patrick Lalime be headed back to Pittsburgh?
I used to contribute to this site but due to work and time I have been unable to. I’ve been lurking and reading all the Leafs bashing back and forth all the time and felt that perhaps now would be the right time to make a post.
After the Sens thrashing of the leafs, was this the final hurdle the sens needed to get over to become a true contender?
Flyers center Keith Primeau is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Ottawa Senators after missing the pre-game skate at the Corel Centre on Sunday morning.
Last night’s game may have been one game early in the season, AND the Senators have blown out the Leafs before in the regular season.
Having said that, It was EASY to see this one coming. There is legitimate cause for concern in Leaf Land. It is not just this game. Look at the last 4 games.
It’s been a while since I’ve wrote an article, so bear with me here, I might be rusty. Again, despite the additions of Aucoin, Spacek, Vorobiev, Seabrook, and Khabibulin, there are still inherent problems in the Chicago franchise. With the recent 3 game series against Detroit (I’m a Detroit Fan) I watched and noticed some of the reasons that the Hawks still are not winning games. Most of their troubles are something that your hockey coach would teach you not to do when you were still so young that you could play in your basement.
I’ve recently noticed that perhaps the reason behind hockey moving towards clutch and grab, and lower scoring is deep rooted in expansion and the lack of talent available to fill up 30 teams full of 22-23 man rosters. Between 1998 and 2000 The NHL welcomed Nashville, Atlanta, Columbus and Minnesota into the league. The 99-00 season (when the league went to 30 teams) saw the first Art Ross trophy winner with less than 100 points since Stan Makita did it with 87 points in 1968…
It’s been a while since I’ve posted any messages on the site, and since I’ve become a Maple Leafs fan with the signing of Lindros this summer, I have some ideas that Toronto needs to in order to improve their team.
Who are the rookies in the NHL this season that have performed above or below expectations? Sure the season is still very young, but who has impressed you thus far?
The Post recently reported that the uncertainty over which players may be cut to get the Devils under the salary cap is becoming a distraction. The club must free up around $4 million in salary once forward Patrik Elias is ready to return to the lineup, but the paper suggests he may not be ready to do so until December.
