With the Addition of Rucinsky, which should take place in a day or two…. The Rangers find themselves with an overload of players…..
12 offense men are needed for 4 lines…..
But the Rangers have 14….
Lindros, Bure, Nedved, Holik, Dvorak, Rucinsky, Mess, Samulson, Lundmark, Lyashanko, Oliwa, MaCarthy, Barnaby, and Murry……
Jason York and Mike Bab***** are not seeing eye to eye already.
This adresses to CUJO, Leafs and Wings fans.(I think this is more logical than Koivu)
No Vezina, Hart or Stanley Cup wins doesn’t exactly spell superstar, yet people keep talkin on how great he is.
TSN.ca is reporting:
The Dallas Stars have re-signed left-winger Brenden Morrow to a three-year deal.
Montreal Canadiens General Manager, André Savard, announced today a 4-year contract extension for defenceman Craig Rivet. Rivet is now under contract with the Canadiens until the end of the 2006-07 season.
Western Conference: Alot of changes over in the west this summer, many teams have changed and from a non-playoff team into possible Stanley Cup Contenders. Every year the standings are close, last year just six points separated the ninth from the fourth place team. What are your predictions for the West?
Last season as I watched Saku Koivu’s first game back, I saw all of Montreal’s fans on their feet for, what seemed like an eternity. Battling cancer for almost an entire year, and then coming back to finish the rest of the regular season and the playoffs was truly a heroic feat. But as I sat there watching the game I wondered to myself why the networks and the Canadians fans were so happy to see this guy back.
I honestly want to know why everyone loves this guy so much. I can see that he has a lot of heart and leadership, but what else has he done. He has only scored 20 goals once and the most points he has ever had was 57. This doesn’t seem like a superstar to me. I really want to know what the big deal is with this guy; so Habs fans, let me know.
Pop the champagne corks…this is HockeyTradeRumors.com’s 2000th story. In a few short months HTR’s celebrated their 3000th member and the one-year anniversary of increased (and increasing readership). To everyone here at HTR- members and admins like me- let’s all keep up the good work.
I have written about the Safety Net’s when word first came of them being put up.
This issue has been very controversial in the past.
This year, behind all of the goal’s, of every NHL team, safety net’s have been put up in all arena’s.
What do you think about the safety nets being put up?
Below is an interesting article posted on Hockey’s Future http://www.hockeysfuture.com by Dean Belanger.
Jonsson: Not impressed with crackdown
Brian Burke wakes up
On the radar screen: Eddie Belfour, Nordique Imposters, the NHL’s worst team, Alexandre Daigle, Sam Roberts, NHL players slipping through the cracks, and more
Brent Johnson has not seen the ice since September 9th.
What’s the real reason why the NHL wants to stop keeping hits and blocked shots as stats? Denis Gauthier has his opinion…
tsn.ca reports on Eric Daze:
The surgery is scheduled for Wednesday at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. It was not made clear how long he is expected to be out of action as a result of the surgery, but it will certainly be a significant amount of time. Daze will not even be re-evaluated until six weeks after the surgery.
That is horrible news for the Hawks. This will definitely hurt their start of the season, can they pull it off?
I have been asking myself all summer, “Do the Sabres have any chance at all of making the playoffs this year?” At first glance the answer is a big NO WAY in hell, but at a second glance the answer is there is a small chance. Recently I was reading the comments made in regards to how the Eastern Conference will end up and no one chose the Sabres to make it to the playoffs. Well there may be a way…
I was running through a Google Search and just “accidently” ran across this while searching for something else. I find this rather interesting. What do you think?
This is not an article dedicated to titans!!! JK. For all the ladies on this site you can say what you think without sounding gay, so in a way this article favors you. Now I have a question something that sounds very stupid but…
… saying your not gay, and us surely believing you, (ya right), be honest on who you all think is the best looking hockey player. The guy who comes to the rink looking spoofy, hair done, and if you dare even mention who you think has a nice butt!!!
p.s=Sorry Titans, I was just thinking of your bubble.
Eastern Conference: The east is my favourite of the two conferences, it is always unpredictable. Every year the standings are never the same, and those who you thought would do good, fail, and those you thought would preform bad, do well. What are your predictions for the East?
I do give credit to ESPN for giving a fair amount of solid information from sports around the world. But, it is pathetic how they program the NHL.
I am not sure who is to blame, since NHL.com, cbssportsline.com, and others, do not update the NHL boxscores of the pre-season games. Whose fault is it exactly? I don’t know, but i think the general media just mistreats the NHL. Before the NFL started its pre-season games, there were pregame previews of NFL pre-season games. How pathetic is that? The sport already has the wrong name (football?) and it was JUST pre-season. Yet, ESPN, had NFL tonight and so much entertainment for NFL fans.
How are they the leaders of sports coverage world wide when they cannot even have an update on a 7:00 pm game at 9:00 pm? How dare they call themselves leaders? They can’t even update a score? Total unfairness for NHL fans in the USA. I checked the ESPN channel itself, and just the BOTTOM LINE has the updates on the scores. It’s a shame. How about they switch from football to hand ball since basically 95% of the game you use hands? But hey, let’s call the real sport where you use feet, soccer.
I am using www.msgnetwork.com for NHL scores and updates. Does anyone else know another site with updated scores? TSN.ca is too slow, shame on them too.
I’m not so sure that I disagree or agree with this idea. Right now I “think” that I more agree with the current ticket pricing style as here in Dallas where tickets remain the same price at each and every game of the Regular season.
Well, there are a few cities that will charge more when “certain” teams come to town. That is when a supposed “better” team comes. Well, what if that team just flat out sux that night? What if a great player is injuered? What if this is the night they sit out their starting goalie? Was it worth the extra 10-20%?
You know, it just amazes me. These people get paid to do this and millions of hockey fans get to read it. Why?
I’ve never seen such a retarded goalie ranking as this one.
This years off season was one of the biggest in years, with the change of players to teams…..
What were the best and worst 3 signings (or trades) this off-season?
Don’t forget spending wise………
