Zherdev to Vancouver???

Although not supported by any direct sources there is a great deal of speculation that the Vancouver Canucks are very interested in the Blue Jackets Nikolai Zherdev. It is well known that the Canucks are in need of extra scoring and Zherdev could provide to be a good fit with Morrison and Naslund provided that he cleans up his attitude and comes prepared to play.

Drury to the Rangers???

Larry Brooks of the New York Post speculates that Chris Drury has a strong desire to play in the Big Apple and that this desire may have him choose to sign in New York over other places such as Buffalo or Colorado.

What is it that makes Canadian players so determined?

I was surprised, yet not shocked, to learn that 40 of the 42 Conn Smythe winners have been Canadian. That’s quite a telling stat. Every year I make the ‘bold’ assumption that only a team with a Canadian Captain will take home the Cup, because Canadians love the game the most and are willing to sacrifice the most. This is mainly a way to quiet Leaf and Canuck fans who think, “this is the year.” This is in no way a diss on Americans or Europeans. After all, who didn’t feel for Selanne after he finally got his Cup. But it is quite interesting to note the amount of Conn Smythe winners, for the playoff MVP, that have gone to Canadians.

Why do you think this is?

CAREY PRICE!

Alright, after a third straight year with a Canadian team in the Stanley Cup finals…NO CUP IN CANADA..pretty disappointing unless you follow The American League. Last Night the Hamilton Bulldogs “Montreal Canadien’s farm team” won the calder trophy, by eliminating the Hershey Bears “Washington Capital’s Farm Team” in Five games. Being a habs fan i am extremely happy to see our young players dominating the American League, and especially happy about the goaltending situation.

What to do with Schneider

Cory Schneider will definitely be traded, but for what? I have a few proposal’s which would work for both team’s, and would be simple trade’s that could happen (likely not, but there more likely then any trade involving 13 player’s, like some people on here like to post).
