Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal is suggesting that the Oilers may have some interest in Glen Murray.
There is an interesting phenominon out there in the NHL that counters the notion that all NHLs are just money hungry jocks that just want to maximise their monetary potential. Some hockey players opt to take LESS money to play for their hometown team. So i got a little curious and wanted to see what the 6 Canadian teams would shape out to be like (excluding goalies) if everyone was to play for their hometown team. To be considered a hometown player one must have been born within an hour away from the city or within the province (ei all BC players are canucks).
The Toronto Sun is reporting that the Ottawa Senators are sitting back and waiting for offers to come in for their two quality goalies.
While there is no audio proof from the game on Saturday, it appears that Sean Avery (while chirping in the opening skate against the Leafs) made some disgraceful comments to Jason Blake about his dealing with cancer.
Sportsnet and the FAN 590 are reporting the Leafs will be without the services of defenseman Pavel Kubina after an injury to his MCL in Saturday nights shootout loss to the Rangers
Why does everyone look at Eric Staal with such respect, and seem to not look at Rod Brind’Amour at all??? Don’t get me wrong, I love Eric Staal, but this is their fourth year together, and Brind’Amour has kicked Staal’s ass all but one year.
I know, I know, another Eric Lindros article. I don’t care. He’s a God. Lindros is apparently Swedish for flower or something stupid like that. Well, if Lindros sets the standard for names, then I guess we should call Alex Kovalev Ballsy Toughasnails, because Lindros is the exact opposite of a flower!
With the talk of Eric’s retirement, i decided to write something in his honor. To be i believe Eric was the best player in the mid 90’s but never came close to the Gretz or Lemieux. That being said Eric in his prime was better then Forsberg and more imposing on the ice then Jagr.
