At the end of every NHL there’s always both the good and the bad. The conclusion to a good run in the playoffs. The definitive Stanley Cup Champions decided (hopefully a team of your liking). And of the course the news of all the players coming and going.
The NHL released the 2004 NHL YoungStars Rosters today for the East and the West, each team consisting of 11 players.
It’s a face off, who will win this one between me and Spector? Find out…
The Capitals plan to trim their $50 million payroll by $24 million, and they took the first step toward achieving their goal yesterday. They traded a way super star Jaromir Jagr to the New York Rangers for ex-Oiler Anson Carter. This move is the first of many moves the Caps will be involved in. Bondra, Lang, and Gonchar are said to be on the market.
To start off, I would like to give the readers a short introduction. In my article, I will first go over what I think is the Maple Leafs best lines to use as of now(before any trades happen, and with all the injured players back), grading of players, then I will suggest a few trades that should be done, and a conclusion.
In between the clouded memories and twisted thoughts that float around in my head every day, there is the rare occasion that something clear and intelligent sneaks past the radar…….
Unfortunately that hasn’t happened today so if this actually gets posted you will all be subject to my manical rumblings.
Here is an article who has been written by Big Georges Laraque that I want to share with you, HTR members.
OK let’s go back to the basics here. I’m going to give the facts on this Jagr trade to shut up everyone on this website.
So yes like most of the time…. I’m going to challenge everyone about this topic since it seems to me so many Rangers fans and other fans have cried about this Jagr deal.
Here Is the Basic Facts on the deal.
Fight them if you can.
The new measure of a man, WWGHD? What Would Gordie Howe Do?
TSN.ca reports that the Washington Capitals are set to trade all-star player Jaromir Jagr to the New York Rangers in return for Anson Carter, and are awaiting for league approval. Details to follow.
In other Rangers news, TheFourthPeriod.com reports that the New York Rangers acquired defenseman Jamie Pushor from the COlumbus Blue Jackets in exchange for an 8th round pick.
The Leafs are tied with the Avs for first place overall. They are doing this without four of their best players. Rumors are swirling around this team, and players like Jeff O’Neil, Roman Hamerlik, Janne Ninamma, and Sergi Gonchar are being linked are said to be potential targets for the Leafs. And then there’s the media….
According to RDS.ca, a rumor coming from Ottawa, the Washington Capitals would have reached a deal with Ottawa that would ship Peter Bondra to the Sens…
I noticed too much confusion over this. People mentioning too many names, not getting the trade talks right, and looking too much at one side. So, who do I blame? Well, The Score will never gain my trust, and it certainly deserves to be known as a…….
The Philadelphia Flyers picked up yet another defenceman on Thursday, acquiring Matthias Timander from the New York Islanders for a seventh-round pick in 2004.
Gentlemen, I’ll be brief.
There is an OUTSTANDING article in The Hockey News in which the players of the NHL were asked what they would change about the game.
On 610 WIP this morning they were discussing the Flyers need for a goalie and it was said that “inside sources” in the Flyers organization stated that prior to the Markov deal the Flyers were “very close” to acquiring Kolzig and Gonchar and that Williams was part of that package that fell apart at the last minute.
It seems that Bobby Clarke has started my most favourite time of year. With the trade of Williams for Markov, Clarke has finally began the Gm’s battle for positioning. This year has seemed slower than most and we all know the CBA has been front and centre of all potential deals. No one has been willing to take that step to get GM’s to start wheeling and dealing.
According to many sources, The Score, RDA.Ca, spectorshockey.net and thefourthperiod.com, the Washington Capitals and the New York Rangers are in heavy discussions about a trade that includes Jaromir Jagr. While nothing yet is imminent, reports say the teams are in involved in trade talks. The Rangers coach/Gm/President Glen Sather said yesterday they made some calls regarding a trade yesterday, but mostly referring to defensemen. This gives reason to believe the Rangers are interested in possibly Sergei Gonchar or Brendon Witt.
There’s currently a pile of exciting races happening in the NHL, both at the Conference and Divisional levels. Now, I may be biased as a Habs fan, but I honestly think the race in the NorthEast is outstanding:
