It’s not official yet, but it’s looking like the Pens are going to Kansas. According to TSN, and the Team 1040, Mario Lemeuix met with Kansas officials, and that kind of makes me wonder if Mario is done talking with Pittsburgh.
Roberto Luongo was unreal tonight, and stood on his head, just like he has been for more then half a dozen games. The other day I was saying he hasn’t been great, and all, because I thought he was just having a few good games, AND not let in a weak goal. Now I think he’s getting his game.
After yesterday’s aquistion of Mike Comrie by the Ottawa Senators, I once again fear them. Once Spezza and Fisher come back they will have Comrie as either a second or third line center! The guy can still score!
So, I have compiled a list of what the Leafs can do to become competitive in the Northeast Division. JFJ came on the Fan590 a few days ago and stated that the Leafs have about $500,000 dollars in cap space to work with, so here are my possible solutions, which are all speculation:
Trade season is starting pretty soon, and teams need to start deciding whether they are going to contend for a playoff spot, and take a run at the Stanley Cup, or will they dump some impending UFAs, tank, and hope to win the draft lottery.
Spectorshockey.net is reporting that the Anaheim Ducks have aquired defenseman Ric Jackman from Florida for a conditional 2007 draft pick.
The Canucks are on a bit of a hot streak, yet Naslund isn’t a part of it. The Leafs are finding it hard to score goals, yet it wasn’t the case when Sundin was injured.
No I’m not suggesting Naslund for Sundin. It wouldn’t benefit either team.
Mid-term grades on teams that have completed Game 41.
The Comrie trade to the Ottawa Senators could have a domino effect on the league.
To counter that statement, why could the general managers be nervous to not make as many trades as the media and fans expect? Find out another reason other than the usual “cap” talk.
And before you continue, congrats to Team Canada defeating Team USA in the WJC semi-finals in shootouts. USA had many opportunities to put the game away in OT, but failed to score as they hit a crossbar. Goalie Frazee was outperformed by Carey Price (something tells me Frazee won’t be so good in NHL shootouts). Good luck to Team Canada in the Finals, and Team USA for the Bronze medal. By the way, I hope that a Swiss ref won’t be used in the medal games and in next year’s WJC. Go Canada! Go USA!
I have been reading a lot of posts not only here but on some Devils forums and I have come to one conclusion:
Hockey fans are the hardest to please.
For this article I just want to hear everyone’s comments, and I’m just gonna write who is what, but not the reasons why.
Who made up the rumor of trading Mats Sundin! 17 POINTS IN HIS LAST 11 GAMES!(< <
In a suprising move, San Jose Sharks GM Doug Wilson today annouced the demotion of forward Steve Bernier and defenceman Matt Carle.
What’s so suprising about this is that Bernier and Carle are considered two of the club’s most promising young players. They both came in late last season and were outstanding for the Sharks in last spring’s playoffs.
