Who Wants A Goalie!?

Early in the season and almost every team could use a goalie…… Goalies are still available all over the place.

This might be one of the biggest years that almost every team has their goalies up on the trade block….or need a goalie just as bad….

Mantaray Powerrankings: 10/27

The Mantaray NHL Team Powerrankings

weekending Saturday, October 26th.

A little food for debate.

Eat up!

Larry Crooks….I mean Brooks, States…

TORONTO – Rangers not only have been aggressive inquiring about Ottawa’s unsigned Group II defenseman Karel Rachunek (Would you exchange Radek Dvorak and Tomas Kloucek for Rachunek and Magnus Arvedsson? The Senators might), the team has also been knocking on Boston’s door regarding Kyle McLaren, their unsigned Group II defenseman, to Broadway.


Larry Brooks

Czerkawski or Audette on the way out?

After seemingly boosting their offence in the offseason with the addition of Mariusz Czerkawski, it seems as if the Canadiens may want to get rid of the scoring winger. After 7 games with nothing to show but an empty net goal, Czerkawski was benched in last night’s 5-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators. Gritty winger Bill Lindsay was played in his place to give the Habs some much needed toughess after being dominated by the Flyers a few nights earlier.

Thrashers' Fraser should be first coaching casualty

The Atlanta Thrashers’ Curt Fraser is poised to become the first coach to be fired this year.

They’re already writing the obits in Atlanta, where the Thrashers are 0-6-0-1 and where general manager Don Waddell said he didn’t “want to be 2-8″ after the first 10 games.

The betting is that Fraser, in the final year of his three-year contract, will be fired sometime between Nov. 2, when the Thrashers play game No. 11 against the Florida Panthers, and Nov. 7, when they play No. 12 in Chicago against the Blackhawks. A leading contender for the job will be former Washington coach Ron Wilson. The word from Atlanta is that Ted Nolan, another coach still looking for a job, won’t be considered.

Blue Line Help Tough For Leafs To Come By


While the Leafs’ brass continues to look outside the organization for potential solutions, there are no blue line gems such as Rob Blake dangling out there for the taking.

Trade inevitable for devils

The devils are off to a great start but have not played any really spectacular teams. Surprisingly they still look like the same hit and speed team but with so many possibiliteis to trade…how long before it happens and who will it be?

oilers may get tanguay

hey rumor has it that a trade might go down between the colorado avalance and the edmonton oilers

the trade might involve struggling winger alex tanguay and a draft choice

this is what the deal might look like to edmonton alex tanguay and a 3rd round draft choice to colorado centre todd marchant and winger ethan moreau

i think this would be a good trade for both teamsedmonton gets a good young player that can put the puck in the net and a draft choice which edmonton is really good at

colorado gets todd marchant which is a very good player that can play on the cheacking line and also is a very good pentaly killer ethan moreau good hard working player that has some good size and can add some goals

tell me what you think about this trade

Over and Underrated Coaches

Coaches are one of the most underrated jobs on a hockey team. Aside from players, who do you think is the most overrated coach, who do you think is the most underrated coach?

Rucinsky Jumps Over NYC, more on NYR. Devilish Offense Burns. Tampa No Way.

Rucinsky just wouldn’t accept what the Rangers offered him, so he goes to the Blues to…..

…So Ruicinsky not coming back, who is going to come to NYC, and who will depart?

Devils are 4-1, but how will they survive against superior teams? Danton’s a locker room headache.

Reason why Tampa’s hot.

York to Nashville, Injuries, Rumours, etc…

Mid-week of a rather dull, average week ….everyone is tired and exhausted… not many big stories happening so here is some minor news and speculation.

Senators Interested in Matthew Barnaby

According to the Team 1200 in Ottawa, the Senators are actively pursuing NYR enforcer Matthew Barnaby.

John Muckler was in New York last week talking to Glen Sather. Could a deal be in the works? The Senators are apparently interested in Matthew Barnaby while the Rangers either want Arvedson Or Rachunek in return. Matthew Barnaby would give Ottawa the grit and toughness the fans wanted, what do you think of this possible deal

The Toronto Star has reported that the Leafs are looking to acquire a big-name physical defenceman. Both Kyle McLaren from Boston and Derian Hatcher from Dallas have been tired into this rumour.

Comments on the Previews

These are just simple previews written by mikster, titans, and trademan. Soon the other previews will be up. The delay was caused by big heavy schedules, and I want to thank titans for taking his time in helping me out. We’re not setting high expectations on these previews, they are the first we did; just a little taste of the better ones coming for the 2003-2004 season next year. Some are different as well, not all follow the same set up.

Comments are welcomed here in this post. We’d appreciate it if negative and pointless criticizing comments are not made. Remember, this was rushed and could be considered a try-out. What we’re looking forward to are just compliments on the effort and time we spent doing this. We do promise that next year’s previews will be better, neater, more interesting, and with more stats to look at.
