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.
The Colorado Avalanche will be without All-Star defenseman Rob Blake for an indefinite time period. It was announced that Blake has suffered a hairline fracture in his left leg.
Check out the latest NHL news… Just a little something to stir up some opinions.
Looks like Curtis Joseph will stay in Detroit after all…
At the 2004 All-Star game in St. Paul on Sunday, they named the NHL Legendary All-Star Team, which consisted of Wayne Gretzky centering Gordie Howe and Bobby Hull, a Bobby Orr – Ray Bourque defensive pairing, and Patrick Roy in the net. When you think of the all-time line, this is really a fine choice. However, last time I checked, a team is made up of twenty guys, not six.
According to TSN.ca and the team’s official website, the Sean Burke trade to the Flyers has indeed happened.
The old hand in the nets out west, Burke returns to Philadelphia along with young wingers Branko Radivojevic and Ben Eager in exchange for Mike Comrie.
I never had any intention of doing an AHL version of this and then FoxSports Detroit went and replayed the Skills Competition for the AHL All-Stars late last night and I found myself devouring it as well. This is fun because you get to see a lot of upcoming NHL prospects for the first time and judge them for yourself.
(By the way, the actual All-Star Game is to be held tonight at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, MI).
And so here we go, here are some of my thoughts upon seeing the AHL All-Star Skills Competition:
Bobby Clarke traded today defensemen Eric Weinrich to the St.Louis Blues in exchange for a 5th round pick in the 2004 draft…
The sad thing about the St. Louis situation is most of the fans here in St. Louis knew that this would be a hard season. But we had no idea…
Leafs Defensman Rick Jackman wants to play in Toronto but after dressing in the first 16 games of the season he has only dressed in 13 of the teams past 39 games and he is growing frustraded.
The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired goalie Sean Burke from the Phoenix Coyotes, ESPN’s John Buccigross has learned.
Well tonight (Saturday night) was the YoungStars game and the Skills Competition. While a lot of people bash these events as boring, I enjoy watching them because you get a chance to examine players you wouldn’t normally get a chance to see play very much. And as such, you also see things you wouldn’t normally see.
Here are some of my thoughts…
(Note: This is not a recap, this is a collection of thoughts that are probably more-enlightening to someone who watched the events already)…
