OK I am Leafs fan so I will try to not turn this into a Senator’s bashing session.

Are *all * the NHL injuries, especially to veterans as serious as they seem? I have to wonder sometimes if teams don’t just want guys to have a little extra time off.

The Atlanta Thrashers and Edmonton Oilers are developing quite the history between each other. Oiler legend Kelly Buchburger was the teams first ever captain, and scored they’re first ever goal. The Thrash got embarrased a year later when Ryan Smyth (not the Oilers), beat them 3-0. Then the battle of the future stars last season when Kovalchuk and Comrie went toe to toe…
