Colorado, St.Louis, Philly, Tampa, Vancouver, Detroit, Calgary. What do all these teams have in common? There not 100% sure about their goaltending.

Ducks V.S. Wild= End Of Hockey???… I Think NOT*, More Like = Inspiration!..

While others will turn off their TVs in favour of warmer weather, I plan on watching 2 teams who have fought, battled, and crawled with everything they had to be where they are now….

Shhh! The Government Is Listening

That’s right – I’m baaaaaacccckkkk…….just like your “rash” down there, I keep returning.

First off, having just watched the Canucks / Wild game, I have to ask – I’ve misplaced my translation dictionary – does “Cloutier” mean “sieve” in French?

Dryden to be demoted? Shvela retired…again?

Spotsnet.ca is reporting on their website that current President Ken Dryden has been considered “superflerous” by the new Leaf upper management and could be either reassigned to a lesser position, or released altogether. The article states that the new incoming board of directors will likely keep Quinn in his dual role of coach/GM, and seeing as quinn never reported to Dryden, but rather to the board, Dryden’s position will be eliminated.

Is this a new beginning!!!

Stars will fall, which ones though?

And…..some possible trades that may happen.

Pat Quinn to Stay Pat

Leafs president Ken Dryden and coach-GM Pat Quinn will be staying with the organzation, the Toronto Star reported.

A step in the right direction!!!

This is defiantly a disappointment for us Flyers fans. No doubt about it. We win one of the most hard fought entertaining series of our history only to be knocked out of the playoffs again by the Ottawa Senators. We have a very talented team with a perfect mixture of speed, size, and grit. So what went wrong?

Roy and Yzerman pull a switch

Well, It was thought to be the other way around for retirement, at leats thats how most thought it to be. Yzerman with injury’s would hang up the skates, especially after being Zipped in the 1st round.

And… Roy was thought to play at least one more year. But reports have him hanging up the pads.

STARS=Not for Sale!!!!

Hicks: Stars no longer for sale

As the season winds down (much too quickly for some of us – thanks, Minnesota), I’m curious about some things, such as what happens on this site in the “off-season”. I also have some genral questions about people’s attitudes regarding some of the stuff that occurs here on a fairly regular basis.
