***NOTE*** This rumor is as crazy as you can get, but there are too many rumors about Montreal & Colorado these days to pass on this one. It may have some truth to it and may have not. In the latter case, it’ll lead to a bit of entertainment and some arguing…
Sources report winger Ray Whitney has signed with the Detroit Red Wings.
Watching the free agent signings happening around the league once again makes Canucks fans feel like the guy picked last on the kickball diamond; ( I think it was my Peach “Members Only” jacket) just happy to be on the team.
Okay, its been awhile since weve been able to list our favourite prospects, so here you go!
With Free Agents still on the market like Ray Whitney, Joe Nieuwendyk, Brian Leetch, and Oleg Tverdovsky amongst others. And numerous players mentioned in trades like Robert Lang, Jarmior Jagr, Eric Lindros, Keith Tkachuk, Doug Weight, Pavol Demitra, Alexi Yashin, Micheal Peca, John LeClair, CuJo, Tommy Salo on the market. I’ll discuss good fits, feasible trades.
Larry Brooks of the NYPost.com suggests that Mark Messier, who is 8 points shy to become 2nd all time in scoring, may go to the Edmonton Oilers or the Florida Panthers to play with Mike Keenan.
Also, more around the NHL….
Right wing Darren McCarty was a guest at a recent event with Jim Rome and said that the Wings are working on moves to improve the offense “in a few days” that would guarantee a return of the Stanley Cup to Detroit.
WDFN radio host Mike Stone also remarked that a “source that is usually reliable” told him that the Red Wings are close to landing Robert Lang via a trade with the Washington Capitals and signing free agent Ray Whitney.
The Lang trade likely won’t result in goalie Curtis Joseph getting moved with current Capital Olaf Kolzig manning the pipes.
The Thrash made a splash in the free agent pool and signed Slava Kozlov. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.
Ok, I’m sure some members on here remember that more than two weeks ago HTR.com has mentioned the new addition of Fan’s Rant. If you don’t remember, please take some Cognitex and copy and paste the link below:
Well, I am back to the uncivilized world (NJ) after a pleasing and relaxing vacation. It’s incredible how most times I leave on vacation and a lot of things happen. Fedorov signing with the Ducks, de Vries with the Rangers….and more rumors of Cujo. I felt like I missed too much and could not post any comments when the events occured. So, just giving some interesting opinions on the big acquisitions and so on, especially a discussion of Cujo going to……
According to TSN, Jonathan Girard of the Boston Bruins is in hospital after a car crash that left him with an injured pelvis. Two other people were in the car at the time of crash. The crash occured near Joliette, Quebec. It is not suspected that alcohol was involved.
Looking at the rangers right now it is obvious to say that they should be a good team. The problem is that they dont have enough team players. Ive come uup with a fairly good solution for the rangers which should work for now and for a long time down the road. Now the rangers team would look something like this:
I was thinking about the obstruction problem. By this point, everyone should realize that referees are not going to fix it (we differ on the reasons referees won’t fix it, but that’s not my point here…let’s not turn this into another “refs suck!” thread).
If I were Bob Gainey, GM of the Montreal Canadiens I would…….
With several reports that Mario Lemieux is returning, a new arena closer than ever (thanks to Ted Arneault), and a surplus of young talent the future looks bright in the ‘burgh. The best thing that could possibly happen for this franchise is for the league to go on strike (which is expected) and for Gary Bettman to put in a salary cap (also expected, supposedly at $35 m). Paul Kariya, Teemu Selanne, Sergei Fedorov, Brian Leetch, and many others have all been available this offseason (some still are), and the Pens don’t have a shot at any of them. Instead of us watching Mario send saucer passes to the Golden Brett (like it was reported two seasons ago), we’re watching Le Magnifique get hacked while Rico Fata misses his passes.
Sergei often thought about the open road. “Oh, the things I could do out there. Boy, howdy. What I could do out there. I’m stuck in Motown. I could be living it up in the sun.”
Alot of self-proclaimed Leafs experts seem to think they know what they’re talking about.
