#1: Need a goal scorer period M.Hossa especially that ryder is leaving we’re going to need a right winger that could put it in the net
The Canadian Club Perspective:
Insight to the Trade Deadline
With trade rumors swirling around the media and the deadline less than two weeks away, the six Canadian clubs seem to be right in the middle of all of it once again. With the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadians in a battle for first place in the East, and the Calgary Flames right in the mix to finish at the top of their division, it looks to be a strong contending post-season for the three clubs.
Plus trade talk involving Ottawa, Colorado, Anaheim, NJ, Chicago, NYI
Mats Sundin may be thinking twice about his refusal to waive his no trade clause with the Maple Leafs, and the Detroit Red Wings might be the team that gives him incentive to do so.
TSN is now confirming that Henrik Lundqvist has signed a 6 year contract extension, estimated at $6.5 million per year!
Tampa Bay.com is speculating that the Lightning may be working on a new contract for Dan Boyle.
The New York Post is reporting that the clock is ticking on devs deal
According to Pat Hickey of The Gazette, the Atlanta thrashers may be having a difficult time trying to find a trade partner in order to deal Marian Hossa.
Yesterday, Ovechkin, Malkin, and Alfredsson were 1, 2, 3 in NHL scoring. The first time in recent memory where three Europeans (including Russia here) have held the top three spots. If we were to make a team of the top 12 forwards, 6 defensemen and 2 goalies of each, which do you think would be better? If you were rooting for a N. America vs Europe (including Russia) team, which would you choose? Which would prevail?
The rosters are found below.
Okay, I started writing a comment on one of the trade deadline threads and I think it should be a discussion unto itself. Picture this, let’s say you’re a Rangers fan, you finish with the 8th most points in the East this year, let’s say 6 points more then any team in the South East division, and you don’t get to make the playoffs because the division leader from the Southeast gets bumped up to 3rd place.
I’m going to write this story in the past tense because most of you will read it after the Tampa Bay Game. This is not a bashing of Patrice Brisebois, god knows he gets enough. Its merely an observation and some FACTS!
