A great amount of talk has been circulating this season on ways to create an “open” game of hockey. By this, I mean, having more scoring chances and goals scored in each game. I have been thinking, and though this idea may be a huge risk, it could create huge rewards.
My mom always told me not to make my list too long or ask for unrealistic gifts, so I’ll try my best, but keep in mind it’s only a wish list! You see, Santa, my Montreal Canadiens need a bit of help, so here goes:
Mike Comrie will wear a Flyers jersey, but there are a lot of things that don’t make sense. In depth analysis.
Today’s latest trade rumors around the league from Spector’s Trade Rumors.
The National Hockey League Fans’ Association wants you to answer some good questions.
Listen to TheFourthPeriod.com’s Radio Show, I’ll tell you about that later.
Any former Whalers fans? There’s a nice site for you to look at.
Annnnnd, no off-topic rant today. But, I would like for you to give us your opinion on what the site could do to make it better. Just want to know if anything new comes to mind, so glad we got over 8,000 sign up members.
Mario is visited by the ghost of hockey’s present, who takes him on a journey through present-day NHL to show him that having a small payroll isn’t an excuse to suck.
It’s a great day to ba an American and an Iraqi.
This Comrie story is too exaggerated, hopefully it ends soon.
A step away from the worst journalist (Garrioch), and a shot at NY’s media rumor headcase Larry Brooks.
My comments on a couple of articles, and my replies to the previous CM article’s comments.
Also……..my off-topic rant and my two favorite music CDs of 2003.
Ok, this idea isn’t mine but yesterday I was listening ”Les Amateurs De Sports” on the radio and they came up with something surprisingly interesting…
Has the CBA disagreement this season actually started the NHL’s metamorphosis into the league we all want and hope for?
This Mike Comrie story is worst than the Lindros one back in 2000. But is Lowe really the bad guy here?
Curtis Joseph played quite well in last night’s major win over the miscoached Sabres, and Holland made a statement that teams are interested in him.
Why do people think that the Capitals fired Cassidy to accomodate Jagr? And……Rangers fans should really stop wimping out on bringing in the Czech star.
Rangers are water and oil. The Panthers need to make moves as well as the Falling Stars.
Also, some interesting articles.
…..Annnnnnnnnnnd……my off-topic rant.
Just a sneak preview of a HTRFHL’s article, and this one could be useful for anyone.
Finding systems and strategies that other leguers don’t know is same as a football team with its own special playbook that the opponents don’t know of, or don’t understand.
Bruce Garrioch continutes to shoot more crap with his brainless head. Do Canadian hockey fans read his stuff? I mean really..how does this guy still have a job? Canadians should SPEAK OUT against this pinhead.
Where does Cujo go?
Annnnnd……………we’ll go back a couple of days ago from the previous Challenging Mikster.
This edition, I’m covering everything from the last time I did this (November 8). Coincidentally, it’s my 22nd today too…not that it means anything.
To the mudslinging!
According to MSN.com, Fleury will be able to play for Canada at the world juniours. Apparently, Fleury will be at the training camp on thursday.
This is awesome news for Canadian Juniour Hockey fans! Could this be Canada’s ticket to a GOLD medal??!!
One quarter of the season has already gone by and it is now time to mark your votes on the All-Star ballot…
I, like many others check this site daily if not hourly. ( I work all day with a computer). I check it daily to finally read an article about my favourite team or an article about potential trades, and that is what this site is for.
Charles Wang is the owner of the Islanders. He decided to keep Mike Milbury as his GM when he bought the team in April 2000. Here is a letter to Mr. Wang regarding Milbury.
Cujo gets treated unfairly by what’s supposed to be a classy team.
Are Jaromir Jagr’s words true?
Comrie to Devils? Don’t think so!
Peca a cheap shot, Isle’s dug a huge whole.
And…… It’s your decision to find out a special system to use for your Yahoo Fantasy Hockey Team.
Tracking the Jagr Story part III
Well, it’s being said that Jagr now told media he never wanted to leave Washington and was just upset his team was not doing well.
Could it be Jagr really loves Washington and feels bad? Or Could it be Jagr’s now putting on an act so that other teams don’t worry about his attitude in the locker room?
Seems to me as if either Jagr has lost his mind totally or just figured something out.
From this fans perspective, it is Mike who should go. He has clainmed responsibility for the Isles 3 week slide after breaking up the “good ole boys” group that formed when the Isles took their team to West Virginia for training camp. This group that wore jeans and CAT tractor hats included Wiemer, Peca, Aucoin and some other veterans. Rookies couldn’t break into the group. Getting rid of Wiemer not only was supposed to save salary, but break this group up. The remaining players countered with “Members Only” t-shirts. There is obviously friction in that locker room. The Isles started very strongly winning 7 of their first 11, however they have won only 2 of their last 11 since Jason Wiemer was let go. They have lost 6 in a row.
TSN.ca is reporting that Ken Holland informed Curtis Joseph this morning that he has been placed on waivers. CUJO will not accompany the Wings on their trip through St. Louis and Toronto. In the event that CUJO isn’t claimed, he could be demoted to the AHL.
