Desperate for top players, the Edmonton Oilers shook the NHL last summer when they exercised a part of the collective bargaining agreement that had been eschewed by colleagues for years.
The world must be bored due to the lack of trades this year because of the salary cap. Below is a reality check for all the pipe dream hockey fans.
This was going to be a comment on another thread, but I figured what the hell.
If you choose to read this and you are not a Leafs fan, substitute “admire” with the “hate hearing about”.
No matter who you cheer for, you have to applaud Mats Sundin (whether it’s his commitment, his loyalty, his heart, or maybe stupidity?) he has stated time after time after time after time after time after time that he does not want to go anywhere else. I admire him for it. He signed his contract with a NTC for a reason. Sundin is smart Swede and he knows what he is doing.
According to Bob Ganey, the canadiens need faceoff help. Their is a rumour suggesting that Montreal and Edmonton are in trade talks about Jarret Stoll for Micheal ryder. Both are having off years but Stoll is doing great in the faceoff department and ryder is a proven goal scorer. Both are young and might help the players with a change of sceanry.
according to www.hockeybuzz.com, their is a rumour going on that Ovechkin could be traded to Nashville for marik Zidlicky, J-p Dumont and Ryan Suter with a possibility of shea weber. Washington would have to send Ovechkin and olaf Kolzig. The Predators are looking to do something major with their new ownership and they have a lot of cap room. A nashville station has said the Nashville has talked to Washington about Ovechkin.
So everybody found out today that Carey Price & Kyle Chipchura were sent down to Hamilton. After watching Carey Price play since the season started people have witnessed the potential he has but this is the first time Carey Price has ever faced a down point in his Pro-Career.
Amid word that the Toronto Maple Leafs may be willing to trade him, forward Mats Sundin tells Toronto Sun’s Lance Hornby that he has no intentions of asking for a move out of town.
“That’s very safe to say,” Sundin said. “I didn’t sign a one-year deal last summer to (better accommodate a trade), I want to be a Leaf.”
