After leading the Hamilton Bulldogs to a Calder Cup in the AHL, Price seems ready to make the jump to the NHL. However, if he wants to stay with the big club he is going to have to beat out Huet for the starting job. The habs probably won’t keep him as a back-up with a guy like Halak around. If Price doesn’t take the job from Huet, he’ll be back in the AHL getting the ice time he won’t get as a back-up with the habs.
Isn’t it funny how whenever someone talks about their team they always say something like ” Well ya, but we’ve got the best rookie talent just look at: yatta yatta yatta…”. Well to break this all down I’ve made a list of the top 20 prospects(1being best, 20 being least) in the whole NHL (system). You may agree with some of them, you may not, but here we go:
Last years hiring in NYI of Garth Snow as GM may have been funy enough for most people, but now they put the toping on the cake. That’s right, the Isles hired Mike Dunham as their new goalie coach! Although some people may argue Snow did a good job for the Isles, there comes a time when it just gets ridiculous.
Here, I have made a list of possible trades that Les Canadiens could make (I also kept in mind the salary cap, player interests, team interests, and the possibility factor).
P.J. Stock said it so well on the team 990 the other day; if you’re a player for the Habs, you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t.
With the central division out of the way here is my next installment in my series of division previews, today feturing the Pacific.
The Canes, and Wild have unveiled their new uniforms while there are photos of Dallas’ apparent new uniform.
Ever since the induction of the Overtime Loss, this has bothered me to no end.
In the NHL, the concept at least makes some sense. Teams play to 60 minutes. If no winner is found in the 60 minutes, the game goes to overtime. If overtime does not settle it, to ensure games do not go long into the night, a shootout is set. Since a team did not lose in regulation time, only in overtime, they get a point for playing 60 minutes and not losing. It’s similar to a tie.
Ok, first off, this is probably a coincidental finding on my part but what the hell, I thought it was very interesting. But anyways…
While looking through an old hockey book, NHL Pro Hockey’85/’86 by Jim Proudfoot, i looked upon the future 1986 Stanley Cup Champions, Les Canadiens de Montreal. Well, the first thing i noticed was Jim Proudfoot’s analysis of the Habs strengh’s and weaknesses. defences are basically the same in offence. Both are/were reliable when it came to 5 on 5 situations and both could chip in when it counts.
