Okay – let’s see how “hard up” the admins are for new material.
Periodically I hear grumblings from the masses regarding:

***NOTE*** This rumor is as crazy as you can get, but there are too many rumors about Montreal & Colorado these days to pass on this one. It may have some truth to it and may have not. In the latter case, it’ll lead to a bit of entertainment and some arguing…
Sources report winger Ray Whitney has signed with the Detroit Red Wings.
Watching the free agent signings happening around the league once again makes Canucks fans feel like the guy picked last on the kickball diamond; ( I think it was my Peach “Members Only” jacket) just happy to be on the team.
Okay, its been awhile since weve been able to list our favourite prospects, so here you go!
With Free Agents still on the market like Ray Whitney, Joe Nieuwendyk, Brian Leetch, and Oleg Tverdovsky amongst others. And numerous players mentioned in trades like Robert Lang, Jarmior Jagr, Eric Lindros, Keith Tkachuk, Doug Weight, Pavol Demitra, Alexi Yashin, Micheal Peca, John LeClair, CuJo, Tommy Salo on the market. I’ll discuss good fits, feasible trades.
Larry Brooks of the NYPost.com suggests that Mark Messier, who is 8 points shy to become 2nd all time in scoring, may go to the Edmonton Oilers or the Florida Panthers to play with Mike Keenan.
Also, more around the NHL….
Right wing Darren McCarty was a guest at a recent event with Jim Rome and said that the Wings are working on moves to improve the offense “in a few days” that would guarantee a return of the Stanley Cup to Detroit.
WDFN radio host Mike Stone also remarked that a “source that is usually reliable” told him that the Red Wings are close to landing Robert Lang via a trade with the Washington Capitals and signing free agent Ray Whitney.
The Lang trade likely won’t result in goalie Curtis Joseph getting moved with current Capital Olaf Kolzig manning the pipes.
The Thrash made a splash in the free agent pool and signed Slava Kozlov. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.
