The Calgary Herald is reporting that as many as 15 teams have lined up to try to get their hands on San Jose’s Patrick Marleau.
The Boston Herald is reporting what we all ready know. Many teams are in desperate search of goal scoring but there are really no teams that are willing to deal.
I am a huge Habs fan and right now the team is sitting in fourth place in the East 5 pts back of Ottawa for first overall.
The Canucks now officially have the worst record in the last 10 games, going 2-7-1, which has pushed them out of the playoffs for the first time since October. Only St. Louis and Florida, having gone 3-5-2 and Atlanta 3-4-3 are close to as bad. This is not a good time to be going on a losing streak for the Canucks.
What can they do, if anything, to get back on form? Trade for Sundin now? Give up their future for a chance to make the playoffs? Or scuttle the season?
TSN is reporting that Maple Leafs center Mats Sundin has been talking to Cliff Fletcher about his future with the Leafs. What should Mats do?
The hot rumor that Peter Forsberg might be returning to the NHL appears to have been stoked with gasoline.
I want to start by saying how happy I am that the NHL finally remedied their atrocious schedule for next year. Having said that, I did an interesting study of the Penguins and how well they would be doing if they didn’t have to play in their own division. I used Montreal, a team that’s been neck-in-neck with the Penguins all season, as a foil.
There are some interesting numbers in there, I suggest you check it out!
The Daily Herard is suggesting that the Black Hawks and Martin Havlat may soon part company.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are is search of a new number one goalie.
The Leaf trade deadline situation has the Leafs against a fence forcing them to make a trade. This is because the Toronto Maple Leafs are one of the largest fan based NHL teams in the league. Not having a monster scoring first line up like the top contenders have the leafs looking very small. The Leafs Need a fix but are in rough shape to make it no matter how desperate they are. If the leafs were to make a move and possibly trade Sundin it would not be enough alone. trading an older player near retirement is not worth a Top player and draft pick, which the leafs would expect and nothing less.
