Eastern Conference Outlook

Now that the draft is over and the major part of free agency concluded, it’s a good time to take an early look at how the Eastern Conference is shaping up. This isn’t a prediction of where teams will finish necessarily, but just a look at how teams will fare in the upcoming season.


To be honest, I really do feel Gainey has done an exceptional job being a GM. We can’t blame him for missing out on signing the top UFAs or FAs every year since it isn’t because of him why the players are not signing with MTL. It’s like Gainey said it’s more like teammates, geography, high taxes in MTL, and don’t forget the crazy media that puts so much pressure on you to play mistake-free every game.

The Problem With The Leafs Is Ownership!!

This team would be near the top of this sport on a yearly basis except for everyone above John Ferguson Jr. Believe me I am not a supporter of JFJ. Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment is what is destroying this team and people have to wake up and see this.

Canadian Olympic Team for 2010

Hey guys, I was just thinking what the team will look like in 2010 if no major retirements or injuries come into place and believe me. I can smell the Gold already.

Smyth – Spezza – Heatly

Niedermayer – Pronger
Regehr – Phaneuf
Boumeester – Jovanovski


Niedermayer – Richards Iginla – Sakic
Boumeester – Regehr Jovanovski – Phaneuf

Sakic – Crosby – Heatly Spezza – Lecavalier – St. Louis
Pronger – Boumeester Phaneuf – Niedermayer

This team is insanely awesome. I can’t imagine anyone competing to the level this team can. Looks like we can expect a Gold medal in 2010.

Leave Gainey Alone

Ok, so Gainey didn’t land an amazing free agent. People really need to stop blaming him for it though. It is not his fault. There is talk of replacing Gainey and that is nuts! Gainey is the best thing to happen to this club. Yes he is very laid back but he is trying there it no doubt about it.
