Joe Cutroni provides an inside look at what’s happening around the Western Conference to give you the edge you need in your fantasy hockey league.
With many of Tomas Kaberle’s former teamates eigther mulling retirement or sporting another jersey, Tomas has quietly been looking at his options. He has been looking over other team’s rosters and seeing where he could potentially fit on a contender’s team. It has been said Tomas has even inquiring about certain cities and coaches as he is considering possibly waiving his no-trade clause since the Leafs are going threw a rebuilding process.
It’s a bit early to start mentioning anybody (other then Detroit, and San Jose) legit cup contenders, especially the Canucks, but they’ve played some fine hockey this season.
Right now there 2 points out of 2nd place in the West, there top 5 in the league in goals against, AND for too. We haven’t lost in regulation in our last 10 games either.
Note: Very long read! I’ve been working on it for a week or so, just writing a bit each day for a week or so, just in case you guys are wondering why I have so much free time to do this ahaha

Sporetsnet.ca is reporting that Burke has agreed to a 6 year deal worth 18 million dollars.
