Peca Wants Vengeance!

When Michael Peca returns to the New York Islanders lineup next season, a certain Toronto Maple Leafs forward will be in his crosshairs…

A Minor Preview of the Eastern Conference, After One Fine Day

One Fine Day is a song written by one of my favorite poets, Dexter Holland. One Fine Day describes of how his fine day would be like, and it would be one fine day for me too. To open up the fridge and have a tall boy. To then meet up with my friends, and head out to the game again, yet we really don’t care who wins. My favorite part of that song is Drinkin`, fightin`, going to the game…in our world is the way to stay sane, and if you’re asking me, to have it my way, I’d say that’s a One Fine Day.

Most Entertaining

I love hockey. No news, everyone does in this site. But what I truly love about the game of hockey are the great artists, the players who really make us stand up when they do awesome things on the ice.

What would sell?

Quickly Lets think of ideas of what could market this site to make it bigger than it is.?

I’d say get much cooler design T-shirts or surfer shirts [long sleeve tshirts]

Possibly nicely designed bumper stickers.

A few ads on bigger sites [espn or Hockeynews] wouldnt hurt neither.

I think this site has HUGE potential.

what do you think?

The Stanley Cup: Makebe-Leaf-ing in Toronto

Can Krupp rescue his career in Atlanta?

On the radar screen

Who is the Next Big Thing?

I’d like to start this article with a question if I may? Hasn’t anyone noticed that some of the premier goalies in this league are getting a little long in the tooth? There are some goalies that may or may not have broken out last season, but are they for real? So let me ask you all this:

Korolyuk signs in Russia

Faceoff.com is reporting that Alexander Korolyuk has signed with Ak Bars Kazan of the Russian Superleague, the team with which he played six games two years ago. Korolyuk is a restricted Group II free agent which means the Sharks would be eligible to match any offer made by another team.

What will happen?

Well what to say? After CUJO left for Hockeytown there were loads of dissapointed fans around and the aquisition of Belfour coming off a sub-par season couldn’t in any way make the fans of CUJO happy.

Wings Look No Further Than Their Own Bench

TSN.ca reports:

The Detroit Red Wings have stayed within the organization to replace the retired Scotty Bowman, promoting Dave Lewis to succeed him as head coach of the Stanley Cup champions, a source close to the situation said Monday.

Tkachuk and Brathwaite Re-sign

(Jul 15) tsn.a – Forward Keith Tkachuk and goaltender Fred Brathwaite signed one year contracts with the St. Louis Blues on Monday.

Both players were Group II restricted free agents and received qualifying offers from the Blues.

Tkachuk’s signing was a formality. He told the team weeks ago that he would sign the $8.3 million qualifying offer. His agent, meanwhile, is continuing to work with the Blues on a long term deal.

Isles' Off-Season Inertia Spells Trouble for '02-'03

After one year of modest success following several abysmal seasons, the New York Islanders have raised ticket prices by a whopping $35 per seat. How, then, can they justify their utter inactivity in the free agent market this off-season?

The Canucks: Asleep Behind The Wheel

FOR the past three years, the Vancouver Canucks have been one of hockey’s fastest rising teams, going from cellar dwellers to Stanley Cup contenders in the process. Built patiently by General Manager Brian Burke, the Canucks have become a formidable opponent in the National Hockey League and should be formidable for many more years to come. However, of all the successes that Burke has achieved over the years, there is one area that his patient style has failed in, and that is the world of free agents. Where other teams have dived right in and fixed their teams instantly- or at least thought so- the Canucks sat back patiently, watching all of their targets get snapped up by more aggressive clubs. Fortunately for them, none of those free agents has ever been theirs- until now.

BIG-MARKET THEORY A BIG LIE

…AND so Pat Quinn was heavily fined by Gary Bettman, for last week publicly promising a 2004-2005 lockout, but that hardly matters, not when a lout like the Toronto GM and his buddies such as Vancouver GM Brian Burke continue to spread smoke under the NHL imprimatur that big- market teams such as the Rangers and Stars are imperiling the foundation of the league.

The TOP 25 future superstars of the NHL

As we see the superstars of toady approach their final years in the league, such as Roy, Sakic, Yzerman, Lemieux, their is a new generation of elite players who will take the torch and represent the new superstars of the league.

Amonte Signs 4 Year Deal With Phoenix

TSN.ca is reporting that Tony Amonte has signed with the Coyotes. The last of the upper tier unrestricted free agents, Tony Amonte, has found a home.

Senators re-sign Alfredsson!!!!

(Jul. 12th) — TFP has learned that the Ottawa Senators have re-sign team captain Daniel Alfredsson. The Ottawa Sun is reporting the two sides have agreed to a 2-year, $9.5 million contract, which could be worth as much as $10 million with bonuses.

The Senators would not confirm, nor deny these reports. A Senators representative told TFP, “We’ll announce it, when we announce it.”

Remain hooked to TheFourthPeriod.com for details as they happen…

Amonte Choice Soon?

The Team 1050 in Toronto is reporting that Tony Amonte Will make a decision on which team to join by Saturday. According to the report, Amonte has two offers and is expecting two more today. No word on which teams are involved, but the Rangers, Leafs and Islanders are all rumoured suitors for the Winger’s services.
