The Boston Bruins acquired today veteran defensemen Jiri Slegr from the Vancouver Canucks
Jeff O’Neill has struggled to find his goal scoring touch all year and now has wound up as one of the big names in the rumour mills and the trading block.
A very reliable source is telling me that Georges Laraque is headed to the Ottawa Senators as early as Saturday. Another source is saying that it is done that he’s headed to the Sens, they just are discussing who/what is coming back the other way.
The HTR Hockey Pool has been a blast so far and this is a reminder for those who wanted to make some changes to their team and make a run for the NHL JERSEY given to the winner at the end of the year.
Look inside to see who can still trade players and what is the exact Trade Deadline.
Last night TC_4 and myself went to the Oilers/Ducks game. This was my first opportunity to finally see the Ducks for myself without the like of the TV. As I watched the game I increasingly became more and more frightened by what I saw. Other then a pretty solid 10 mins in the second, the Ducks show no sign of life and was THE WORST GAME THEY PLAYED THIS SEASON.
According to a few sources, the Thrashers will be awarded the 2005 All-Star game. The NHL plans to announce this after the sale of the team is finalized, which should happen sometime in the next few weeks. The relatively new venue, Philips Arena, is likely one of the bigger reasons for this. Of course, with a possible lockout upcoming, this All-Star weekend could be pushed back or even cancelled.
Okay recently there have been two unusual suspensions in the NHL. The first is the Sundin stick incident, and the second the Roenick water bottle incident. For anyone living under a rock, the first one saw Sundin after breaking his stick on a shot attempt throw his stick twenty rows into the stands, the second incident had Roenick throw his water bottle at a ref after a missed high stick call.
I’m not Czech or anything, but since there seems to be a few posts about possible lineups for the World Cup, I thought I might take a chance at speculating who could possibly be on the Czech Republic’s roster
Well we got wowbasketball, wowhockey, HTR, wowbaseball and wowfootball.
There is also a wow site for soccer. It’s called thesoccertimes.com and we’re looking for members (We couldn’t name it wowsoccer because some Japanese soccer site is called that.)
After taking a look at what has happened in the Eastern Conference so far this year, its time to look at who’s the best in the West for the first half of the season.
Rookie Nathan Horton of the Florida Panthers will miss the rest of the season to have shoulder surgery.
…And what About Martin Straka?
The hits just keep on coming for the Flyers. Since last nights embarrassing 6-2 loss to the Sabres and the obvious frustration of forwards including the young tandem of Gagne & Williams and that of prominent team leader Jeremy Roenick. One has to wonder what needs to be don’t to correct all of this.
So some nations have gotten there World Cup Roster posted here in the resent days. So lets take a closer look at what might be expected from Mother Svea. All the names are pretty much set so lets look at them and guess what lines we will see.
With Brent Johnson going unclaimed on waivers, I cannot help but wonder why the Hawks have not laid their hands on him, especially considering the unimpressive play of Thibault’s replacements.
These are my power rankings for the Eastern Conference teams based on the first half of this year.
Ok, so they haven’t played up to there potential for much of this season. Actually, it was about a 20 game stretch that has been the downfall. The other 22 they’ve actually played really good hockey, but there still 2 games under .500. At the same time, there 4 points(ONLY 4 points)out of 8th. Why is everyone in this city(at least on the call in shows)and on this website(non Oiler fans), so sure there done??? I would really like to know why fans are POSITIVE that the Kings are going to be fine without there 3 star players, but the Oilers who still can get 76 points this season(obviously won’t, but they’re there)are done, and will unload everyone every other team wants.
Well with all teams at or above 41 games I think it is time for us to look at the year end trophies and predict who will win them.
Presidents Trophy- Top NHL team
I’m picking the Avs. Despite being 3 points away from the Wings, they have 3 games in hand
As reported in this week’s edition of the Hockey News, the WHA has officially announced that the league will start with 10 franchises and play its first game in December of this year. And to distinguish the league from others, one of those teams will consist entirely of Russian players, based in a Canadian city.
Ok, well let’s stick with the theme and make a guess on the World Cup team for Russia. I was going to do Sweden’s too, but I decided one/customer. So here could be the Russian team for World Cup.
