This whole Penguins sale thing that has been going on for like 5 years in the making is finally looking like it is all over. A new owner is in place, and funding for a new building looks like it is coming along. But what about teams like the Sens who were having some trouble and prospective cities should the league expand to 32 teams, or if another franchise unfortunately becomes financially unstable or the owner would like to sell.
Ray Shero has annoounced that the Penguins will keep Jordan Staal with the team this season. He has also announced that Kris Letang will be sent back to his junior team, Val d’Or of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
Another blowout. the final score in the game against Pittsurgh was 8-2. What is the problem?
The Phoenix Coyotes have agreed to a one-year deal with veteran centre Yanic Perreault worth $700,000.
We have 8 d-men, none of which are performing greatly. We are also close to the cap. Who should stay? Who do we dump? What would you have as the combinations?

Rumours have been flying that Toronto Coach Paul Maurice is very upset with enforcer Wade Belak and has asked Toronto GM JFJ to bring him in a new enforcer who can get the job done. The anger for Belak started after Belak apparently told Maurice that he didn’t really feel like fighting in Toronto’s last game against Ottawa after Maurice asked him to go protect Darcy (Tucker).
What If, what if JFJ were actually witty? What if we spent our money wisely? What if we pulled the trigger on one of the biggest trades? What if we came out with a lineup that was favored to win the Stanley Cup? I wonder what that feels like….
TSN.ca is reporting that free agent center Yanic Perreault, is close to signing a 1-year contract with the Phoenix Coyotes! The Sens, Flames, and Lightning are all interested!
With Marc-Andre Bergeron only having 3 points this year it seems as though the Oilers are in the market for a Powerplay QB from here to the trade deadline. I have compiled a list on who is available, who could be available soon or who could be available come the trade deadline:
The latest on Mikael Tellqvist, Evgeni Nabakov, Craig Conroy, Sergei Samsonov, and more…
As some of you probably know, Darren McCarty filed for bankruptcy earlier this year…
