For those Penguins fans out there who have been worried about the team’s recent struggles with the absense of Marc-Andre Fleury and were wondering what Sid could do to revitalize the team, you all got your answer today.
Not only did Sid score a goal and set up two goals, but he also, officially, got into his FIRST NHL fight… and did quite well!
Kudos to Sid and the Gordie Howe Hat Trick!
First of all, I am a Ryder fan, I think that he has lost his confidence under Carbs, and is trying to do to much instead of just shoot. He is a 30 goal scorer, on a team with limited offence. To be effective, Ryder needs time on the PP, and on a line with a set-up man, like I said he is a shooter.
Paul Maurice crosses the line. Two games in a row his post game comments are unacceptable.
Why would the habs EVER trade Price? Maybe because Lecavalier is coming the other way.
And this year is going to be a good one for sellers. Even if theres only a few of them.
I know somebody has posted this already, but i thought i should do it again. Chris Osgood, the NHL’s most underrated goalie, really really should be in the NHL All Star game. This year Ozzie’s numbers pretty much speak for themselves. This year Osgood is 15-1-1 and has a save % of .929 and a GAA of 1.76, with one shut out. yes i know you can argue that he plays on the NHL’s best team, the Detroit Red Wings, but he has played great. I think the goailes save % speaks more of how good he is then his goals against, even though Osgood is leading the league in GAA, so i’ll compare his Save % to the goalies on the All Star ballot.
As per http://flyers.nhl.com/ The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired defenseman Jim Vandermeer from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for left wing Ben Eager, according to club General Manager Paul Holmgren. Details to follow
Numerous sources are reporting that the hawks are looking for a second line winger.
This was taken from the Toronto Sun. Over the past couple of weeks they polled many members of the hockey media, along with GM’s, Assistant GM’s and Coach’s, players etc. to get the opinions of who is the best and worst in many different categories.
Should be an interesting read, enjoy:
Montreal Gazette columnist Red Fisher reported that he expects the Habs to retire G Patrick Roy’s No. 33 next year and that might not sit well with the club’s alumni because of the way Roy exited Montreal.
Bryan McCabe suffered three broken bones in his left hand, when he was thrown into the boards by Montreal’s Andrei Kostitsyn in the third period of the Leafs 4-1 loss Saturday to the Canadiens in Montreal. When McCabe went into Saturday’s game, he was sixth in the NHL in ice time with 26:33 per game.
