Because of underachievement, contract issues, need of improvement all of the Canadian teams could have new captains next season.
The way I see it is that we are going to welcome back two past players. Both of whom want to be with the Leafs. Better get a drink this is a long one but a good one.
TSN is reporting that the Leafs have signed Boyd Devereaux to a 2 year deal worth $550,000 and $600,00….
Sidney Crosby is among the candidates for Time Magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world, known as the Time 100.
Voting is taking place right now here on Time.com. Crosby recently became the youngest player ever to win a scoring title in a major professional sport and is considered the fresh new face of the NHL.
Ok as a Flyers fan I cant wait for the playoffs to end. I am looking forward to this years nhl draft seeing that the flyers have the 2nd and 22nd overall picks this year. They also have around 25 million to spend on this years free agent crop
What will Team Canada look like in Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics….

Those two teams are… Dallas vs. Vancouver.

According to rds.ca Don Meehan(Markov agent) told to the gazette that Markov want to stay in Montreal and a deal could be done before the end of May.
Good news for all the habs fans
It came as no surprise that the Sens beat the Pens in the first round of the playoffs. After all, when your only goal scorers are two teenagers (Staal-18 and Crosby-19) and an over-40-year-old (Roberts), plus a PP goal each from the top defensemen (Gonchar and Whitney), and you get no production from any of your wingers (Recchi, Malone, Ouellet, Armstrong, Christensen) your team is bound to lose.
So what does Pitty have to do to become a true Cup contender?
We haven’t heard much about Chubby the last while, except his car is still parked at GM Place, rotting away like the chances that he’s coming back. What could Van get for his rights? anything? I thought he was going to be a regular on the roster, but he’s still holds out for more money than he’s worth. He’s big, strong, and when he played with Mogilny in Van, Mogilny had a lot of praise for him. I’ve always liked his size, but do we need another center?
Iginla and the Flames crossed the line today in the important game 5 of the series. How the players reacted to how they got dominated was irrehensible. There is no excuse for what they were doing going into the game, because they lost to themselves. They had a plethora of calls to score powerplay goals off of. Instead their inability to beat Detroit’s hard-nosed Canadien (yes i know their Euros) forechecking style and defensive wall resulted in them acting in a cheap, unsportmanslike manner.
The leafs have 12 players (including Belak) under contract for next year with a cap hit of $27.55 Million. We would all expect to see Antropov and Poni resigned as well as Colaiacovo and White. So lets say together they’ll be making about $5 mill. So this brings the salary up to $32.55 million.
The Leafs want Sundin back, and they also want their scoring winger and some depth on the second line. In this day of the salary cap, where buying you team is no longer possible it takes a shrewd GM to swallow his pride and make some important and sly moves.
