hey guys i was thinking about the best rivalries in the league and these are my opinion of the top 5:
5. Colorado Avalanche vs. Detroit Red Wings: these games are always great going back a few years to hasek vs. roy and sakic vs. yzerman they always make great games.
Contract discussions have already began between the Senators and end of the season UFA, Dany Heatley. After 5 long and grueling hours of discussions with Eugene Melnyk and Brian Murray, nothing was produced. The Senators offered Heatley approximately 7 million per year but Heatley wanted around 8.5 million per season. The Senators weren’t ready to give him that since they still have to re-sign the likes of Jason Spezza, Wade Redden(if they don’t trade him during the season) and others.
Okay, due to uncontrollable circumstances I could not be there yesterday to send links to the last members who wanted to join so I decided to extend the deadline to join the pool.
HOWEVER, this extension is only for those who already asked to join.
So if you already asked to join the pool, CHECK YOUR PM’s. You have up until tonight (Sept. 30) 11pm Eastern Time before the pool is closed.
Go inside to see who already received his PM but did not make his picks yet.
Well, the season is about to start, it’s 6:10 in the morning, I can’t sleep and I have hockey on my mind. So, I decided to make my predictions for this season.
Brent Sopel has left the camp of the Detroit Red Wings and signed a contract with the Chicago Blackhawks
“The Toronto Maple Leafs will make the playoffs and compete for the Stanley Cup”.
This was the grand promise put forth by coach Paul Maurice. While showing such confidence is admirable, the reality of the situation is that the Leafs like last season will be scrambling for one of the final few playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.
Ottawa’s bread and butter for the last 10 straight seasons of making the playoffs may be the best it has ever been.
What really disturbs me is all the talk about how many games Downie should be suspended. But my question is, how do you suspend a guy who doesn’t even play in the NHL?
We can expect a great year from the Ottawa Senators this season. However they have several issues looming over their heads. Big decisions need to be made by next July, and there’s no need to procrastinate. Here’s what’s going down.
