Okay well, to start this off I am new on this site so please don’t bash me too hard. Also from this point on it will be all about the Canucks so if you don’t like them or the topic of the article don’t bother reading then flaming. Thanks!
Sounds like its almost official..La Presse is reporting that Brisebois is on the verge of accepting the Canadiens offer…so get ready Patrice fans.
With all of their RFA’s re-signed, we now get a clearer picture of the Senators of next season:
A good team, but still noticeably weaker then the one that was runner-up for the Stanley Cup.
So, will they rest on their laurels? Or does Mr Murray have something up his sleeve?
I have some ideas.

Oilers playoff bound??!!: a comprehensive analysis I hear quite a few of the Oilers bashers saying that the Oilers will likely be one of five worst teams in the league. This may come true if the Oilers are as unlucky and disadvantaged as they were last season. They had the most things that could go wrong going south. They had injuries, fatigue, wrong trade and weak D on their plate. Because I know the Oiler had to burden the hindering elements last season, I have a very different opinion than most of you. I am predicting that the Oilers will be a playoff team in the upcoming season. I am not saying just because they get Penner. And post your replies. I am very interested in reading articulate and reasonable arguments.
As reported by TSN. Thoughts and opinions on this topic please.
Many people may have already read Scott Burnside’s article on ESPN from a couple days ago. About basically the state of the league and how all the other major sports leagues are facing major crisis with all their scandals. Yea, we know what they are so I’m not going to mention them. I’ll put the link at the end if you want to read it, but at the end of the article or in the middle I’m not quite sure he stated that this in the NHL’s third year since the lockout. This is historically the make or break year for sports leagues that come out of a lockout or a strike. This is the NHL’s chance to make a come back and get back some fans.
Take a look at what MTL looks like going into season now. Tell me if your satisfied!
Tomorrow is decision day……
The Anaheim Ducks have declined to match Edmonton’s offer sheet to Dustin Penner thus making Penner the new Oiler.
We are now entering August and Mike Peca still remains without an NHL home for this upcoming season.
With the recent trade of Kevin Garnett, the Boston Celtics join the Red Sox and Patriots as teams pushing for championships in their respective sports. On the outside looking in: The Boston Bruins.
According to TSN.ca, the New Jersey Devils have re-signed Zach Parise to a four year contract worth $12.5M.
Many people have crititzied The Edmonton Oilers GM Kevin Lowe on not giving F Ryan Smyth the deal he wanted, but signing F Tomas Vanek to a 7.14 million dollar offer sheet. Well many people don’t know the whole story, so that’s why I want to explain to everyone why this all happened.
Rather than arguing if the Leafs have a playoff capable team or not, anybody with half-a-mind knows they definitely do as long as they can steer clear of the mass amount of injuries they went through last year. However I would like to go from top to bottom and rate each “guaranteed roster player” out of 10 as for their value towards the team goes….if I slip even once there’s people on this site with nothing better to do than just point out flaws…let’s see them come to life if I slip on a player they disagree on.
