Much has been made of the fact over the past few years by fans that Saku Koivu has always had the ability to make the players around him better. But aside from a season or so of with Richard Zednik, Koivu never had unparallelled chemistry as he had with wingers Shayne Corson and Mark Recchi in the late ’90s. In some ways, that was the prototypical line of that era – a power forward to work the corners, a playmaker at centre, and a high scoring winger. Well, until now, that is.
Minnesota Wild forward Pascal Dupuis will be out four to six weeks with a sprained left knee.
Once again you have amazed me with your stupidity about hockey. Not even a month into the season you want JFJ and Maurice fired. The Leafs under Maurice are more accountable, creative and play more like a team. Maurice is still the youngest coach in the NHL and is showing why he was named an NHL head coach in his 30’s. Oh yeah he outsmarted your buddy Quinn in the Conference Finals when he guided the Canes to the Cup.

From the Hurricane’s struggles to the Panther’s and Thrasher’s early success the first 10 days of the season have certainly been interesting. I know its still really early, but there have already been some breakout performances and some player who have really struggled. As I said before, don’t panic yet, but this article will hopefully sell you either make a deal or two or pick up a hot young player while he’s still available.
I’m a life long Islanders fan. I see every game. And if you have been seeing these first 4 games than you already know how clear it is that the Islanders have put together their worst team since the mid to late 90’s, and possibly the worst one since 1973!
According to Bob MacKenzie from TSN he indicates that the league has approached the NHLPA about the possibility of dumping salary arbitration.
