After reading an article in the Dec 12 edition of The Hockey News (on newstands now) it seems obvious that the most successful player in the NHL now, and maybe of All-Time is none other then Scott Niedermayer.
I honestly believe that the best division changes almost every year, mainly because it’s nearly impossible for all 5 teams in a division to put out competitive teams in back to back years.
The following is a list of the amounts of points separating 1st and 5th in each division:
We all know there are a bunch of teams that aren’t going to make the playoffs, right now we are able to predict a bunch of them just 25 games in. There are good players on these bad teams, and I’m positive they can be pried away for a reasonable price.
The Leafs have been a streaky team thus far, and the Eastern Conference has shown no mercy. What will the leafs do if they are cup contenders, or out of the playoff picture at the trade deadline.
I was listening in on after the horn on leafs t.v after the the habs beat the leafs, and Gary Green kept on saying wouldn’t Peter Bondra be a nice fit on Mats Sundin’s wing.
There are going to be more moves then ever at this years trade deadline, with a huge crop of free agent forwards, and less parity then last years NHL, who will be deadline before the 28th?
Now listen. 30 goals a season is relatively good, and Ryder’s accomplished that for Montreal, and that’s good. I’m a Montreal, and Atlanta fan. The only player which I hate on Montreal is Michael Ryder, and why?
Before you freak out about the idea of trading Malkin, just read, and remember to breath.
At the end of the 2004 season their was a lockout. The reason for the lockout was the game was slow and low scoring. One of the things that they got rid of was the trap. That was to any form of authority of the NHL the trap is slowly sneaking back into the game….
This is a list of not every player who will be a free agent next year, but every player who might not return to there old teams.
