New Columbus GM Scott Howson may be ready to make some moves to bolster his hockey team.
According to Don Brennan at the Ottawa Sun (http://www.ottawasun.com/Sports/Senators), Jason York is quite keen on returning to the Sens.
Here’s my analysis.
Is there any way JFJ had a good offseason?? Well look at what he did do instead of what he didnt do.
He went out and got a 40 goal scorer which the leafs definitly needed in Jason Blake
He got a better goalie than Raycroft which the fans were begging for in Vesa Toskala
He also got a 3rd/4th liner which has had a couple of 20+ goal seansons in Mark Bell
He even got a replacment backup in Clemmensen which shows in Black and White that Raycroft will be dealt at deadline.
According to TSN, the Chicago BlackHawks have traded F Radim Vrbata to the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for F Kevyn Adams in an 1-for-1 swap.
According to the NYIslanders website, defensemen Andy Sutton has signed a 3-year deal with the team.
No financial terms have been announced but Sutton was believed to be seeking a 4M$ per year contract (can you say OVERPRICED?) when free agency began… should be interesting to find out how much he got.
Here is part 2 on the importance of drafting and developing with the focus on the organizations in the Western Conference.
Most Leafs fans right now have been blowing around quite a lot of trade rumors. So I just thought I would conjure up some possible (sensible) trades that John Ferguson Jr. could do (and probably won’t because he’s John Ferguson Jr.)
Just so you know, I will no longer be writing Leafs articles here at HTR. I’ll stick to other NHL teams while here, but my Leafs writing will stay exclusively at a blog I am setting up. Sticking to that topic, if there is a a sports team you’d like to write about, any sport, any league, please PM me with a list of the places you write, and I’ll see what I can do.
Anyways, now that I have made hundreds of Leaf fans and HTR members ecstatic beyond belief, here is my current NHL team rankings, which I’ll repeat at the beginning of the season, and then at the end of every month thereafter.
I was just watching some footage from the 06-07 season and was wondering what was the save of the year?
Peca looking only at Rangers at this point and should know by today if the Rangers feel the same way he does about his fit on the third line.
The leafs might not be the best team in the NHL right now, but the future is looking pretty good. Right now I’m going to show you what tomorrow’s Leafs have in store. (1st being the best)
Looking at the Leafs 23 man roster, and how they should produce this season.
