Now Canucks have too many defenseman

Its been reported from the Sportsnet crew The Hockey Central panel mostly by Jim Kelly and Pierre Lebrun that the Canucks don’t need 8 quality Dman.So when Salo and Bieska get back one of them will be packing there bags looking for a new home.The teams most interested in the two are the Leafs,Thrashers,Lightning,and the Caps.Players been mentioned in the deals are Jason Blake or Darcey Tucker,Marrian Hossa,Brad Richards,Aleander Semin.

Who's Next?

The Larry Robinson jersey retirement night has come and gone and as Bob Gainey’s approaches in February, one must wonder who’s the next former Montreal Canadien to get their jersey number retired and hang the Bell Center rafters.

Caps Fire Coach Hanlon

Tsn.ca is reporting that the Washington Capitals have fired head coach Glen Hanlon. Taking over the team on an interim basis is Bruce Boudreau.

Tradeable Buds

I have always said that even if the leafs were losing or being their regular inconsisent selves, i always could look forward to watching some of their young players play and, over the past 2.25 seasons, i have:

Wellwood, Steen, Poni and Antropov, White, Coliacovo, Stralman, Stajan, Tlusty.
One day we’ll be able to add Pogge, Kulemin and maybe Earl and Williams to that list.

Gainey You Need To Start Negotiating Now

First of all, I have been saying all along that now is not the time for major changes in Montreal, it is time for some minor tweaks though. The maojor changes I would make now is to sign some key players before the July 1st deadline in 08, and start working on some UFA’s for 09.
