Habs in desperate need of GOALS !!!!

Ok so we have one of the best powerplays and one of the best penalty killing, but 5 on 5 we SUCK. Gainey can’t wait no longer he has to make a move. Samsonov is a big bust, he works hard but nothing to show for it. Ryder, a proven 30 goal scorer isin’t playing well. Plekanec is a hard worker but he’s no 2nd line center.
We have alot of assets we can move. Too many players that all do the same thing. Plekanec, Samsonov, Perezoghin, Kostisyn, Grabovski. That’s 5 players who do the same thing, and they are all very small.
I like are defence, but we won’t be able to sign are 3 ufa’s. Everyone says that they think we should move Souray, but I think we should move Rivet. He makes to much money for what he gives. There are plenty of teams out there that are looking for a solid stay at home D-man.

If I happen to be Leafs GM.

This maybe a pretty stupid idea. You’ve been warned! Selling off the whole team isn’t the answer, when your still in the hunt for a playoff spot. If anything the leafs should be buyers. If your fighting for a playoff spot is obvious your a decent enough team, you just need a few screws tighten up.

No Fitzpatrick in the All Star Game

Looks like Rory Fitzpatrick will not make the All Star Game.

Young Guns: Part 1

Western Conference Edition. These players are the future of the NHL; chances are you havn’t heard all of these names, but trust me you’ll be hearing them for a long time. For the record, I am considering anyone who has played under 3 NHL seasons and is not over 25 as youth.

Part 1: Goalie surprises, good, and bad.

This is part 1 of my of 3 articles. This is who I think has been a good surprise, and a bad surprise.

Leafs First Half Report/ Predictions

The Leafs first part of the season has been up and down, as of now more up than down(But just by one win). They have good young prospects who can hit(Newbury,Ondrus) score(Pohl) and just fun to watch(Suglobov). Some other good things are the re-emergence of Jeff O’neill, Bates Battaglia and Boyd Devereaux. The first half has seen some of the most memorable moments in Leafs history when Sundin got his 500th.(the absolute perfect goal) Sundin getting his 1200th point and passing a NHL great in scoring every game.

Leafs Should Sell

50 days remain before the NHL trade deadline comes and goes and in that time General Manager John Ferguson must figure out a way to improve the Toronto Maple Leafs. These next 7 weeks will be big in determining whether or not this man deserves to continue serving in the capacity of GM for the hockey club.

Liles Injured! Colorado Searching for Defenseman!

John Michael Liles was injured in Colorado’s 2-1 shootout win over Minnesota on Saturday. He has suffered a broken foot and will be out for 4 weeks.

With injuries already to Leopold (groin, out indefinetly) and Brisbois (back injury, day to day) the Colorado blueline that was already lacking depth now looks empty:

Skrastins Clark
Vaananen Klee
Cumisky Sauer

Canes and Yotes Make A Swap

To Phoenix: Kevyn Adams
To Carolina: Dennis Seidenberg

A Tribute to Greatness

Hockey is a great sport because the people that play it and the families involved are some of the most respectful athletes and people in the world. Families play such a huge role in hockey, the hockey mom and the hockey dad are as big a part of the game as the coaches and the refs.

The news…

Vancouver has won 6 straight, and how long will it last? Why have all the players pickup during the year made such an impact to there teams? The Kings have some big names on there back end, so why is there defense the worst in NHL? And who have been the biggest surprise, good and bad?
