Colorado, to me, looked like a good team before the season started. But then there was Konowalchuk’s retirement, Turgeon’s injury, Leopold’s injury and Theodore’s below average play. Halfway through the season and things still don’t look good. Turgeon is back, Leopold is still out, Theodore is the backup, Liles is injured. I propose Colorado makes some HUGE trades; I think I’m being extremely fair. You be the judge.
At Trade Deadline:
To Columbus: White, Stajan, Williams, Suglobov
To Toronto: Nikolai Zherdev
According to www.rds.ca, the Wild could trade the left winger Pascal Dupuis.
NO! I know the Leafs won 4-2 against the Sabres Thursday night, but thats not what I meen! What I meen is that it seems Wellwood, Tucker, Poni, Antropov, White, Peca, and Wozniewski r injured. WOW! 7 of the Leafs players are out. 4 of them r returning soon, but 3 are not even close to coming back.
The recent play of the New York Rangers is completely unacceptable for a team that should be a top notch contender. The most frustrating thing for the fans is to have to just sit here and watch when the problems holding this team back are fixable…
The New York Rangers had better expectations this season, but have failed to meet them. Inconsistency is a disease for this franchise, will Slats, Maloney, and Renney deal with it now or later? By the way, anyone have some Prozac for Renney?
Another 1st round bust? But, not all is lost as he could actually be used effectively for the ….. (find out who)
Still related to the Rangers, last night’s loss to the Ottawa Senators was a major disappointment, not just for the team, but for the officials. It’s one thing if officials make bad calls, but it is quite something else when they are just rude and unprofessional; find out why.
People have been feeling bored with this season as far as trades, but with the way the season has gone thus far, the Trade Deadline could be a fun week/day.
Well these rumors Iam bringing up are all from Pierre Lebrun from TheScore,Darren Dregger&Bob MacKenzie from SportsCenter,and Darren Millard and the Hockey Central panel from Sportsnet.These are all speculated trades that might happen soon or during the trade deadline.
According to newyorkrangers.com, the teams official website, the Blueshirts claimed Jason Krog off waivers from Atlanta.
Jack Johnson and Oleg Tverdovsky
To Los Angeles For
Tim Gleason and Eric Belanger
I thought this was a joke when it happened. Tim Gleason is a top 4 defenseman who has offensive potential but is not very good in his own zone. He’s still young and could get better but he’s not top line material. Belanger is a third line centre and is solid at his position. Now, Tverdovsky has turned into a 5th or 6th defenseman due to his defensive shortcomings; but then there’s Jack Johnson. This guy has #1 defender written all over him. Now I know with the injury to Kaberle the Hurricanes were in need of some help on the blue line, but to trade away your best player coming up, a player who you know will dominate the NHL for years to come? I think they could have gotten a hell of a lot more.
WINNER: LOS ANGELES (for now)
There have been some good surprises, and bad so I’m listing them.
Yes there are 22 teams playing tonight, but I’ve seen them play each other before. This new schedule is absolute garbage. And the NHL seems to be ok with having a repeat next season. Why not go down to 80 games a season? Is there really anything wrong with that? Then each team would do the following:.
Eastern Conference Edition. These players are the future of the NHL; chances are you havn’t heard all of these names, but trust me you’ll be hearing them for a long time. For the record, I am considering anyone who has played under 3 NHL seasons and is not over 25 as youth.
According to TSN.ca the Toronto Maple Leafs have added Travis Green off waivers from the Anaheim Ducks. The ex-Leaf returns to Toronto is a rather desperate move to add a healthy body to what is has become a depleted lineup for the Leafs.
