Forsberg Bidding?

Accroding to Sportsnet, the Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators are all in a bidding war for oft-injured Philly Star Peter Forsberg.

Bold Predictions

On this unusual warm, rainy, winters day here in Newfoundland, I sit back with my coffee and think about a few things. But its actually a little hard to think after a long romantic date with Captin Morgan (spiced that is) and “Mary Jane” sticking around as that third-wheel. Need I go any further?

Sundin to break one of Gretzky's records this year

The first of Gretzky’s records to be broken was by Ray Bourque, the most consecutive all-star appearances. I’m not sure how many other records have been broken. But Sundin will almost definitely break a particular Gretzky record this year.

Thumbs up, and Thumbs down

In the tradition of Dave Hodge this weekend, I’m going to issue thumbs up, and thumbs down to people around the game.

Is Trading Mats Sundin The LEAFS Best Option???

I have recently stumbled on a Q&A section discussion from Spector’s Blog on Fox sports.

Maple Leafs to get their own

I can already hear the Oilers faithful’s anger, but…

The Maple Leafs are finalizing plans for an outdoor regular season game to be played around New Year’s Day 2008 at their new 20,000-seat BMO Field.

Leaf Logo To Receive A Makeover?

The Maple Leafs have not yet seen the final product that the National Hockey League expects them to wear next season, but some are already anticipating a public backlash if the Leaf logo is tinkered with.

The Battle for the East

When you look at the Eastern Conference Standings 14 of the remaining 15 teams still could make the playoffs. The 14th place Florida Panthers are only 6 points from the 8th spot, they are 3 wins away from making it to the playoffs, and 3 loses away from drafting first overall. Only the Philadelphia Flyers who have 3 home wins in 45 games, YES 3 TOTAL HOME WINS IN 45 GAMES can be considered officially eliminated.

Bulis may want out of Vancouver

there is speculation that Bulis had a conversation with Nonis and wants out of Vancouver. I hope Nonis grants him that wish.

Here is a trade possibility that benefits both teams. And one I hope could happen.
