According to blueshirtbulletin.com the NY Rangers and Phoenix Coyotes have discussed a trade of Al Montoya, arguably the Ranger’s top prospect, for Phoenix’s first pick (3rd overall) in the 2007 entry draft.
www.RDS.ca is reporting that Andrei Markov has accepted the 4 year, 20 million dollar offer that Gainey laid on the table. Markov was one of 2 key players (Souray being the other) that Gainey was / is trying to get under contract before they become UFA’s on July 1rst.
Ok…I’m bored and I felt like doing a little analysis on the Habs for a 2007-2008 roster analysis.
I took a quick look at the RFA’s they have to re-sign and who they have signed currently.
I came across an interesting article on TSN and it really got me thinking. I fully understand the whole notion of how the Senators are the only Canadian team left and how they should are Canada’s team and how the whole nation is supporting them to bring the Cup back where it belongs. However I just don’t see this happening.
Somebody wrote an article a few days saying the Canuck’s should go for the Cup this year, but most of his trades weren’t very realistic, the players he got wouldn’t fit that well, and the team gave up too much of it’s future. So my version will be realistic, and won’t involving giving up tooo much future.
It looks like the Bolts won’t be forced to sell of one of their Big Three as their payroll is not expected to be cut, but may in fact rise.
This should quell and speculation of Lecavalier, St. Louis or especially Richards being shopped.
According to RDS.ca, Andrei Markov finally received an offer: +5M$ for the next 4 years, so that’s a +20M$ contract…
Hello hockey fans. I hope you are all getting ready for the Stanley Cup Finals, starting Monday. This means that for people who can buy beer, start stocking up your inventory. For people who cannot buy beer yet, get your parents to stock up the inventory. And for those of you who cannot drink at all, well….just eat something that satisfies you.
The Nashville Predators will most likely move up North. What a shame, I liked this team.
Some trade possibilities and other moves that may surprise you.
And yes….Bettman discussion time and I’m ready to get grilled for it! By the way, I prefer charcoal, not gas.
As talked about this morning on the fan 590; finally my exact thoughts were voiced across Toronto and it’s surrounding area. None of the NHL playoff games have ranked in the top 25 TV rankings within the Torotno and surrounding area poplulation.
This solidifies my thoughts and what I have preached about over and over again…Toronto is in love with the Leafs and not the NHL or hockey for that matter. It’s a Leaf city not a Hockey city.
I think I have come to an understanding about the majority of NHL fans….damn they complain a lot!!
There’s the easy choice of saying Leaf fans are annoying whiners, so are Habs fans and Senator fans (notice the geographical pattern); there’s just less Habs and Sens fans so it’s not as noticeable as Leaf fans. Then there’s Vancouver fans which for the most part on HTR seem to be pretty good, but I here through the media all the time that they’re actually one of the worst fans to play for. Then there’s Flyers fans…they have this undeserved sense of accomplishment…kind of like Kevin Federline…this arrogant aura that says “we’re better than you” but nobody knows where they got this from…they’ve never won anything and were in last this past season.
Brian Leetch, the lynchpin for the NY RANGERS 1994 Stanley Cup Run, has officially announced his retirement. Say what you will, but he was one of the best ever!!!!!
