So playoffs are almost finished and everyones favourite time is coming, July 1st. This year should be very excited as many times have alot of mula to spend and there is a big list of great players available. Heres a list if big name free agents and where they could possibly land this offseason. For the record i want to say in the finals i believe it will be New Jersey and Anahiem, Anahiem taking Lords Stanley home.
Note: For Each Player I Will Not Put Their Teams That Would Like To Resign Them, What Fun Is That?
The Hockey News selected Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins for its two most prestigious individual awards – as the NHL’s Best Player and MVP – in its recent awards issue.
The international hockey publication also honored the Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin as the Best First-Year Player and Michel Therrien as the Best Coach in the 2006-07 season. The Hockey News named Crosby to the NHL’s first all-star team at center.
The Calder Trophey, given to the leagues top rookie, would probably be best described as a three man race at this point ( Although 4 candidates stick out in my mind ). The 4 are Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh Penguins… Paul Statsney, Colorado Avalanche… Jordan Staal, Pittsburgh Penguins… and Anze Kopitar, Los Angeles Kings.
It has been the most debated topic in Leaf Nation since the end of the lockout. Does Mats Sundin fit into the future of the Toronto Maple Leafs? The simple answer is no. The aim of a hockey team is to win, and we won’t win under Mats Sundin.
Alright so as we all know the Leafs have have roughly 11 million to spend this off-season. I personally believe the Leafs shouldnt drop the bomb and sign players like Drury,Briere, Smyth and so on but they should sign key players that will fill out certain roles and will add depth to the roster where we could have 3 consistant lines rolling and a great 4th checking line.
Drury and Briere are Free Agents at the end of the year and if Buffalo loses them even one, they could be a much less threat to the NHL, I doubt we will see both Drury and Breir wearing Sabers jerseys next year, but where will they go?
I’m sorry Sens Fans but it’s all true. I know you don’t want it to be but it is. I’m going to give you such a headache and really be in all your faces if you don’t like the truth then don’t read this.
Alexei Kovalev wants out of Montreal, he has stated he wants out. The Leafs have an over-payed defenseman by the name of Pavel Kubina. The only way to get rid of an over-payed player is to get another over-payed player. Kovalev can play when motivated. I think a change of scenery to Toronto would do wonders for him, and playing with a real first-line center in Mats Sundin, I think it would be awesome. So here is the proposed trade:
Alex Kovalev told Gainey that he didn’t want to be back on the team if he was treated the same way he was this season. I heard if Souray and Kovalev go, Gainey is going to pick up a Headlined UFA.
GAME 3 VS. ATLANTA… RANGERS SCORE 7, ATLANTA 0.
How? Simple the fans got to their heart and it made them want to win.
Right now the team needs the fans behind them. Forget the Malik giveaway goal that ruined the game last night for them. Don’t boo him yet.
Cause they need Ranger fans to breathe life into the team.
There are alot of good announcers in the NHL but none of them beat the Buffalo Sabers radio voice Rick Jeaneret. Fortunately I live in Hamilton, Ontario which is is about an hour away from Buffalo so I can get WGRZ 550. Whenever the leafs play buffalo, Forget AM 640 I am listening to WGRZ 550 so I can hear Rick Jeaneret. Anyway here are some of his best calls:
