Rookies, Diamonds and Disappointments

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?

Trade Rumors

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.

Best player in the NHL

As we all know the NHL is loaded with stars but I would like to start a debate on who is the best of them all Best D-man Best RW best LW best C best Goalie…… This should be intresting!!!!!!!

After the NHL  and the CBC lockouts ended all appeared well until the author Charlie Teljeur was informed the cartoons would not return “until/unless the CBC found another sponsor” to make it work. In the past CBC usually proceeded knowing that acquiring an advertiser would only be a matter of time. This year, apparently with stricter corporate guidelines, is different.

Has Anyone Seen 'The Cat'?

Chicoutimi, St. John’s, Toronto, New York, Vancouver, Los Angeles and Boston, I lost Felix Potvin somewhere between these places on my radar screen. Someone tell me where The Cat is? How is it possible that Potvin is out of work in this new NHL?

Some Not so Hot prospects
