Is the (new) NHL really that bad?

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.

Washed up.

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.

Send Deal Prospect For Comrie

To Ottawa: Mike Comrie
To Phoenix: Alexei Kaigorodov


Who made up the rumor of trading Mats Sundin! 17 POINTS IN HIS LAST 11 GAMES!(< <

Bernier and Carle demoted

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.

MVP(s) on each team!

Note: Before reading,this is a pretty long article.

30 teams means 30 MVP’s,well not exactly a will name a few for each team if i have to.

OVERHAULIN' – Philadelphia's Plan for the Future

Phili will NOT be making the playoffs this year, just accept it and build for next season. Here is my plan for Philis future:

The following players need to be traded PRIOR to the deadline:

Most underrated players in the NHL, Sundin

Before I get to the most underrated players in the NHL I would like to mention Mats Sundin. He is a horse who gives 110% every night. He has 16 points in his last 10 games. I read an article on sugesting Mats Sundin for the Hart trophy. It will never happen but it should. Anyway here is a list of the most underrated players in the NHL.*All stats are as of January 1st.

Gainey is back! and both confirmed that Gainey is back as General Manager and Vice President. As we all know Gainey took most of December off after the passing of his daughter.

Petr Nedved claimed on re-entry waivers… by the Oilers!!!

According to, Petry Nedved has been claimed by the Edmonton Oilers. While there was wide spread speculation that Ottawa would be claiming the center, since Edmonton is lower in the standings, they get priority.

Umm…well, I thought Edmonton needed help on the blueline rather then upfront. They haven’t been scoring, but they have the talent. Maybe Nedved will reclaim his form he had last time he was in Edmonton.
If he does, great pickup. If not, it’s about 600k dollar hit against the cap

Trade Deadline: Who's Available?



Mike Comrie
Current Team: Phoenix Coyotes
Description: With his contract set to expire at the end of this season he would be a great rent-a-player for a team looking to make a cup run. He can play the role of a second or third line center on a team for depth. He can score and with Shane Doan’s contract expiring, they may not be able to keep him.

Aebischer still sitting out

In my previous post in this section, I stated (and maybe hoped) that Montreal would trade Aebischer and Souray away for a soft-handed playmaking center for the second line. It is now obvious that in even-strength situations, the Habs are perhaps nothing more that an average ‘par’ hockey team. The recent losses to the Florida teams (the only time this season that they have had 2 straight regulation-time losses) are excellent evidence of this.

Leafs should re-acquire Owen Nolan

The Toronto Maple Leafs are missing three wingers currently, Darcy Tucker, Alexei Ponikarovsky, and Kyle Wellwood. Center isn’t as much of a worrying point, because Matt Stajan can always move up. Wing has been a problem for the Leafs since back when they had a 60 million dollar team, with their top three wingers, Nolan, Roberts, and Mogilny often hurt. Now the Maple Leafs are facing some injury problems, and there’s a cheap affordable option.
