Who will win the Jack Adams?

I recently wrote an article on who will win the Norris, but now the question poses as who will be the best coach this season?

General Managers Reviews

Previously, I wrote an article of NHL TEAM REVIEWS. This time it is General Managers Reviews. Read about how well or how poor every GM did his job. All of the GMs are letter graded, like A’s, B’s, C’s, D’s, and F’s. See what your team’s GM got and why.

Al Iafrate's Come Back

Another report of The Sporting News, in Slover’s mailbag, says that Al Iafrate might make a come back to the NHL. It must be Mario’s come back that inspired him. Iafrate contacted GM Rutherford of the Hurricanes that he will attend training camp as a try out, similar to Richer. Is this a good idea for the Hurricanes, Iafrate, and the NHL? It sure is, Iafrate is still 35 and is 6’3 weighing 235 lbs, but it has been 3 years since Iafrate last skated in the NHL. If Iafrate can resume his supershot, that held the record for the hardest slapshot, then he will make a great come back. Opinions are requested.

Amonte Could Be Dealt, Back to The Big Apple?

An addition to the Ray Slover “mailbag” of The Sporting News is a rumor of Blackhawks star RW Tony Amonte getting traded, possibly the New York Rangers.

Osgood, Richter, & the Blues

I just read a rumor from Ray Slover of The Sporting News that the Rangers, Blues, and Wings may make a deal involving Richter and Osgood, sending Ricther to the Blues. Can anyone provide any more info? Thanks.

Another Flyers Trade Coming?

I have been hearing a rumor floating around that has the Flyers sending Jan Hlavac, a first round pick, and a later pick to Boston for Bill Guerin. Has anyone else heard about this?

Yashin deal nears completion

According to reports out of the TSN newsroom, the deal that could see Yashin sign the richest deal in NHL history could be done very soon.

Hasek

Perhaps the most important acquisition made by Ken Holland has flown largely under the radar. The popular slogan “Goaltending wins championships” (at least until the Wings got a goaltender, at which point it changed to “A good farm system wins championships”) has been largely supported in the past, with such big names as Roy, Belfour, Broduer, and Vernon capturing Stanley Cups, and two of the last five and three of the past eight (not entirely sure on that figure) Conn Smythe winners being goaltenders.

Will Cechmanek Fluke???

I need to put an end to a highly debated topic on this site, whether or not Roman Cechmanek (goalie for Philadelphia Flyers) is a fluke.

Team USA…just hopeful thinking?

With the Olympics approaching faster then most of us realize it is hard to fatham how good, or bad, that the united states hockey team will really be.

Savard seems to be interested in another oldy

Latest rumor in Montreal is about right winger Pat Verbeek. The veteran nhl player has scored 515 goals and has a total of 1043 points in 1360 games.

Peter Forsberg has resumed skating again for the first time since May 10th when he had surgery to remove his spleen. At home in Sweden, the superstar center has been having on ice workouts for the past week and expects to be ready for his NHL teamates to join him in Europe.

Gilmour set to become a Leaf!!

The Toronto Star and TSN’s web site are reporting that there have been talks to bring Doug Gilmour to Toronto. Both are reporting that the deal could be done in the next two weeks. Gilmour said Thursday morning that the two sides have talked and that it would be a great fit for both the Leafs and him.

Another round of quick notes for everybody to chew on and digest. Some interesting stats I noticed when looking at last season, as well as a few contract battles going on.
