Just when you though it couldn’t get any worse, along comes the injury bug.
Taylor Pyatt (2nd in scoring) is out 2-4 weeks with a shoulder injury; Rick Rypien is out 6-8 weeks with a groin injury; the injury prone Sami Salo is out for up to 10 days with a neck injury. With the Vancouver roster already lacking depth, the team that will be put on the ice for the next couple of weeks will be laughable.
This year there has been lot’s of players who deserve to be on this list, but only five made it.
Canucks Solution for goals right under Dave Nonis Nose.
The other night they beat Colorado 2-1, but anyone who saw that game knows it was all Luongo. Plus Colorado is incapable of having high scoring games back to back.
After reading an article in the Dec 12 edition of The Hockey News (on newstands now) it seems obvious that the most successful player in the NHL now, and maybe of All-Time is none other then Scott Niedermayer.
I honestly believe that the best division changes almost every year, mainly because it’s nearly impossible for all 5 teams in a division to put out competitive teams in back to back years.
The following is a list of the amounts of points separating 1st and 5th in each division:
We all know there are a bunch of teams that aren’t going to make the playoffs, right now we are able to predict a bunch of them just 25 games in. There are good players on these bad teams, and I’m positive they can be pried away for a reasonable price.
The Leafs have been a streaky team thus far, and the Eastern Conference has shown no mercy. What will the leafs do if they are cup contenders, or out of the playoff picture at the trade deadline.
I was listening in on after the horn on leafs t.v after the the habs beat the leafs, and Gary Green kept on saying wouldn’t Peter Bondra be a nice fit on Mats Sundin’s wing.
There are going to be more moves then ever at this years trade deadline, with a huge crop of free agent forwards, and less parity then last years NHL, who will be deadline before the 28th?
Now listen. 30 goals a season is relatively good, and Ryder’s accomplished that for Montreal, and that’s good. I’m a Montreal, and Atlanta fan. The only player which I hate on Montreal is Michael Ryder, and why?
