Joke Monday's

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…

How to increase excitement in the NHL

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.

Hockey's ''Wanted'' Ads

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:

ESPN and ABC

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.

Then and Now for the Dallas Stars

Grab a large scientific telescope and take a look at the Stars.

A different look on trade rumours- Jan. 17 Edition

This week: the trades of Valeri Kamensky and Sandis Ozolinsh, and the beginning of rumours surrounding the Atlanta Thrashers’ first round draft pick.

Players Mid Term Grades

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.

Thank you

Kamesky dealt to Devils

Valeri Kamensky was traded to the New Jersey Devils for a 22 year old minor league defenceman named Andre Lakos.

Kariya to Montreal

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.

Quarterly Report: Underachievers and Overachievers in today's NHL

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:

Devils Stuck in Hell

What is the situation of the Devils? Have they improved? Will they improve? Will they jump up and down the .500 mark? Did GM Lamoriello make any attempts to help his team to climb back to their usual place?

Florida Trade Rumours

I have been hearing a number of trade rumours surrounding the Florida Panthers in the last couple of weeks and the fact is that the team needs to shake things up a little.

Trade Rumour Request

For the past two months, I’ve regularly done an article called “A different look on trade rumours.” Now, I’m still continuing it- don’t worry hockey fans- but I have to say the only rumours I seem to be getting are from the same teams. Not to say that the Canadian teams or the Detroit Red Wings or any other of the major contenders are not interesting, it’s just that I don’t think the little teams get much recognition.

Will Mario Make A Difference?

He didn’t against the St. Louis Blues, who along with captain Chris Pronger are starting to find their stride now, but the question is can Mario Lemieux inspire his struggling Pittsburgh Penguins towards the playoffs, just how Pronger is doing with St. Louis?

KASPER TO HOCKEYTOWN

Ok, after reading thru all the crap about Darren McCarty, Kirk Maltby and Drapes (Kris Draper) all being considered for trades to get “Kasper” (Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Darius Kasparitus) to Hockeytown (the Detroit Red Wings), I should not have to remind you that the ‘Grind Line” no matter if they play together every night or not, is a killer marketing idea that the Wings will ride till those guys quit

Sather has to do something …NOW!!!

After watching the Rangers flounder thru the motions against the Kings the other night ,I have reached the conclusion that Glenn Sather needs to do something quick.

Devils' Possible Moves ?!?!?

This year has brought the most New Jersey Devils trade rumors I can remember!! But at the same time you still have Uncle Lou (Devils General Manager Lou Lamoriello) at the helm.

End of Season Congestion

February is a short month and the superstars of this great game aren’t going to need much convincing by the end of it either. The month kicks off with the All-Star game on the 2nd in Los Angeles, before returning to club action for two weeks, and then the coveted Winter Olympics from Salt Lake City starts February 15th.

Sabres looking to deal for Toughness

Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier has been working the phones the past week and a trade will be coming.

IS CUJO FINALLY GETTING HIS NEW CONTRACT?

Reports from the Toronto Star, that contract extensions are in the works for goaltender Curtis Joseph, who is in the last year of his contract.
