Over the past few weeks, there have been many talks about goalies packing their bags and going somewhere else but so far only one trade has gone down (Sean Burke for Mike Comrie). From my perspective the Flyers aren’t that much better between the pipes than they were before, it is an improvement, but we’ll have to see how deep they can go into the playoffs.
The Rangers the team who used to buy them up on the deadline may be Shipping them all out come deadline time.
Now it never happens…. But this Rumor has never been rumored before for the Rangers who have missed the playoffs for what will be a 7th time…… And As a die hard Ranger fan, all I can say is, It’s about time.
People Who could be shipped out around the league are as follow.
OK I am Leafs fan so I will try to not turn this into a Senator’s bashing session.
I have to wonder though, does Ottawa get it?
Let’s jump right in.
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. Maybe this is a ridiculous idea but you have to wonder if teams didn’t notice the Forsberg effect of sitting all year then ripping it up in the playoffs. I’ll be on the lookout for players with mysterious injuries in the next couple months… obviously this is NOT about the JR’s of the world who truly are injured. Good luck to JR by the way for a speedy recovery. The League could use more of his type.
Taken from Philly.com:
– Flyers center Jeremy Roenick could miss the rest of the regular season after breaking his jaw in a victory over the New York Rangers.
Here are the latest rumors that are circulating around the league…
According to CBS.sportsline.com, the Sabres GM has opened the gates to let other teams offer for goaltender Martin Biron. So far, the only two teams looking to trade for Biron are the Rangers and Senators. As of now, no players have been offered.
In today’s NHL, injuries are an unfortunate yet common occurance. Also injuries, no matter what time of year, are never a welcome thing to any team. However, the worst possible time for an injury to take place to any player has got to be from now to the trade deadline.
Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reports that Florida Panther forward Kristian Huselius is fed up with his team and wants a trade.
Tonight against the Rangers, center Jeremy Roenick suffered a shattered jaw. And, center Keith Primeau suffered either a knee or ankle injury which at this point the extent of is unknown.
Recently Comcast, the owner of the Philadelphia Flyers and 76ers, along with Comcast Sportsnet, and other television stations including the Golf Channel, has offered to buy Disney. As we all know, Disney is the owner of the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. If Comcast were to acquire Disney, one of the teams would have to be sold.
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…
According to RDS.ca, Sheldon Souray could be out of the lineup for a period of 6 weeks…
A list of the most recent injuries from around the league.
Trade Rumors have been circulating around the Toronto Maple Leafs acquiring another “Top 4″ defenseman.
And this one will definitely make them tough with a “Boogie” Man….
According to the fan590 and Letsgowings.com,
A trade that would bring the Caps center Robert Lang to the Redwings was a done deal, and only a few minor details of the trade had to be worked out. There is no details in what the Caps would get in return. Detroit has been rumored to be looking for a center all year, and Lang would fit in nice with the Wings.
CBC just posted a story that a lawyer in Winnipeg proved Don Cherry right.
So the NHL wants to go to the 3-point game, do they? Well let me be the first to offer an opinion.
TSN is reporting the leafs have traded little used D- man Ric Jackman for former maple leaf first rounder Drake Berehowsky. Good trade for both teams and both players. Jackman gets the ice time he’s been looking for and Berehowsky gets a shot at the playoffs.
Martin Brodeur writes, from time to time, his own column in a Quebec newspaper. In his latest column he decided to write down his own all-star team, composed of 4 offensive lines, 3 defense pairings and 2 goalies. I found it interesting enough to go ahead and transribe the article for people of the site, so it goes like this…
No way I’ll say that Burke is a bad deal for the Flyers.
Where does this leave the Rangers? And, could Rick Dudley’s step down from the bench motivate Sather in doing the same thing?
Mass Media shooting trade rumors at us, at least for about a full month.
Annnnd, my on the topic rant, which may cause some heated discussions.
