Just announced on ESPN.com. Rick Wilson, assistant coach, to take on coaching in the interim.
It was reported on Headline Sports in Toronto tonight, that Roman Cechmanek made a comment in a European paper stating that the Flyers managment, and the reporters in Philly, pushed the European players there to the side, and treat them like crap in Philly. I don’ t remember the exact quote, but that is the most of it! Kind of funny to hear that from a mouth of a guy who just signed a nice multi-million dollar deal!
With Mark Messier and Andreas Johansson out, the Rangers have finally made the right decision and allowed the young guys like Manny Malhotra and Jeff Toms to have more ice time. And they’ve proven their worth in these last two victories against the Bruins and Isles…
I just thought I would pass this along. I read it on www.letsgowings.com’s message board.
According to Larry Brooks (New York Daily News writer), New York Rangers’ star Theo Fleury could be shipped to the Pittsburgh Penguins for defenseman Darius Kaspuritus and a 2003 2nd round draft pick before the NHL trade deadline. Fleury, said he is unhappy playing in Broadway and wants out. Many other teams such as the Kings, Blues, Coyotes, Senators, and even his former team, the Calgary Flames are showing interest in the troubled star. Rangers GM, Glen Sather could not be reached for comment.
Well, we have all awaited the return of Mario Lemieux. Whether it be beacuse we are Pens fans or you have him on your fantasy hockey teams.
Does Boucher feel unloved in the City of Brotherly Love? Will the Bruins trade Guerin or Dafoe and become the Boston Ruins? Are the Devils and GM Lamoriello on the Highway to Hell? Hackett to become a Leaf?
Well, it was going to happen sooner or later. Sports net reported last night that Erikkson was put on waivers by the Leafs last night and will not be accompanying them on their western road trip, starting in Calgary.
Not suprising really, given his horrid performance lately, and all season. I’m wondering if they are starting a bit of a “Fire sale” to clear the way for some new additions before the trade deadline.
Well, I’m due for an article so I decided to post one on players to watch or forget in the second half of the season.
Will Cechmanek stare at the Stars? Should the Rangers trade Richter to the Blues or Sharks? Jordan came out of retirement, Lemieux came out of retirement, Bourque coming out of retirement…oh no ho ho no don’t think ssSO! Poti done digging for the Oil, going fishing on the Isle? ….read more.
Ok I know some of you didn’t like my Tom Green type joke. So I had an idea that every Monday we share a couple jokes with each other. Love to hear sports related jokes, but other will be fine as well. Here are a couple…
Watching the National Football League play-offs has made me wonder: what if the National Hockey League adopted the same idea, with single-game elimination rather than a full seven-game series? I know that my idea is increasingly idealistic, but I have my reasons.
For the past few years, I’ve always joked with my friends that a particular team is so inept they’ll have to take anyone that breathes just to play with them. Well, I’ve decided to take the joke further and put together some “Help Wanted” ads for this express purpose. Let’s see if you can guess the teams (Answers at the bottom). Enjoy:
I know this has been covered before, but ESPN and ABC’s coverage has become ridiculous. It’s become unbearable! It’s hard to even enjoy a game.
Grab a large scientific telescope and take a look at the Stars.
This week: the trades of Valeri Kamensky and Sandis Ozolinsh, and the beginning of rumours surrounding the Atlanta Thrashers’ first round draft pick.
It took me a long time to post these but i did not receive as many as i expected to receive, a bit disappointed. I would like to thank all those who put their effort and took the time to e-mail me the grades. All were great, unfortunately I had to make a decision for the Flyers and it was tough to make, but I managed. This is based right when teams started ot hit the half way of the season. My computer also crashed so it took longer to post this.
Valeri Kamensky was traded to the New Jersey Devils for a 22 year old minor league defenceman named Andre Lakos.
One of the most credible sources (TSN) have said that the Montreal Canadiens is very interested in receiving Anaheim Might Duck captain Paul Kariya in a package deal. The Canadiens would give up one of their back-up goaltenders, Jeff Hackett or Mathieu Garon (probably Garon), left winger Brian Savage, and defencemen Andrei Markov and Sheldon Souray.
Now that the National Hockey League has reached the half-way mark, I thought I’d update my earlier “Quarterly Report: Underachievers and Overachievers in today’s NHL.” Keep in mind these are my picks, and they might be different than yours. Anyhow, here’s my list:
