According to rds.ca Alexander Perezhogin has sign a 2 years contract with the Salava Yulaev. He will earn 1,7 million for each years.
Now I realize that there have been a lot of these articles in the past, I realize that these ideas lean heavily on the side of optimism, and I know that non-Leaf fans will critize these moves, which is fine, just keep it in perspective. This is my shot at being G.M., and what I would do.
While losing this series is excruciatingly painful to the core of the Rangers fan base across the world, the silver lining to this cloud is that the experience may prove invaluable to a team clearly on the cusp of greatness.
Why is it that we’ve come to expect so much of a mediocre team………?
This has been one of the hardest fought battles that comes to mind when thinking of playoff. First, lets look back on what has already has happened; Game one: Buffalo displays excellent speed and scores 3 rapidly, the rangers mount a feeble comeback in the third however the sabres bury them with a goal from Pomminville on a questionable call, I believe it was a goal. Game Two: Rangers play strong defensively out of the gate, getting PP goals from Straka and Mara in the first two periods, Campbell answered for Buffalo with a shot that Lundqvist had no view of, he had 4 players in front of him the puck managed to get through; pure luck, well placed shot however.
We all know that there are 2 guarantees in life: death and taxes. I would like to add “hockey fans are insane” to that list.
I had the absolute pleasure and displeasure of sitting through the ECSF Game 2 against the Devils and Senators. I had seen a playoff overtime game before, also against Ottawa, and they lost (Game 6 2003 ECF).
The Province did a great article on what lies ahead for the Canucks. Suffice to say it does not look good.
The Ducks finished off Vancouver this evening in double over time. The game winning goal may be contreversial, its not often Luongo let’s in a long wrister from the blueline that isn’t tipped…..
I had three ideas for articles, but they all involved the Senators and Devils, so I decided just to post them all at once.
He has been without a doubt the best goalie of the new millenia and, by the end of his career, will probably go down as the best to ever strap on the pads and mask. But, has age finally started to wear upon Marty Brodeur?
By now you’ve all heard about the Shane Doan situation, but here’s some other stuff to consider.
Really simple. Do you think that Daniel Briere’s wrap around attempt crossed the line with less than 14 seconds left in the 3rd period of Game 4 against the Rangers?
