Goalie Decisions To Be Made

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Over the last few years, we've seen a lot of two-headed monsters in the nets of NHL teams. We've seen Roloson and Fernandez, Miller and Biron, Giguere and Bryz, Nabokov and Toskala, Vokoun and Mason, and the list goes on... Roloson and Fernandez were the first to split, and just a few months ago the Miller/Biron monster was broken apart. This summer, it appears we'll ...
[img]http://www.sportsnet.ca/images/daily/sat/emery_practice_cup_hor.jpg[/img] It’s been a long wait for both Senator and Duck fans, but it all begins tonight (May 28th, 2007). This battle should be a good one and the physical prowess of both teams will be shown early on. The epic face off has the Senators big 3 (Alfie-Spezza-Heatley) going up against two Norris Troph...

Can it get any better?

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
The first two games of this series have been probably the best playoff hockey games I've seen in a while (and I've seen a lot, from the 4OT Buffalo-New Jersey thriller that was probably one of of not THE best 1-0 games ever, to Stevie Y ripping THAT shot over Jon Casey's shoulder in 1996), mostly because for some reason the Galactic Empire (aka the NHL) has allowed its ref...

DUCKS RE-UP GIGUERE

Per TSN, 4 years, $24 million. And Ilya Bryzgalov is traded to...?

If you look at a copy of the Ducks depth chart, you will notice something very odd. Right now they are carrying 3 goaltenders in Jean-Sebastian Giguere, Ilya Bryzgalov and Jonas Hiller. This made sense when the Ducks started the season because JS was on the injured reserve, however he has since returned to the lineup and is playing a strong game. Also playing well is...
Every year, around this time, a certain goalie is linked with a certain trophy. Year in and year out, [b]Martin Brodeur[/b] is on the list of goalies who deserve the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vezina_Trophy] Vezina Trophy[/url]. He's a fantastic player, and will enter the Hall of Fame without question. One goalie, who has been a rock for his team to build a playoff ...

Hiller Or Giguere?

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Anaheim is in an awkward spot. Their former undisputed number one starter is struggling . Giguere this year in 31 games has posted a 12-12-6 record with 3.08GAA and .904% . A severe drop from his numbers last year. Which has led to the emergence of once back up goalie Jonas Hiller to split the time with Giguere. Hiller this season sits at in 26 games playyed a 12-10-5...
Would anyone have expected the then-Mighty Ducks of Anaheim to be perennial elites of the league when the expansion franchise was granted in 1993? Their uniforms were atrocious. Their lineup was laughable. They owed their existence to a campy Disney movie. Hardly the makings of a champion franchise. Even the Kariya-Rucchin-Selanne line, easily among the best forw...
It's been widely reported that Ryan Getzlaf underwent surgery in Philadelphia for a lingering sports' hernia, but the O.C. Register is now reporting that Getzlaf could miss the start of training camp. [url]http://ducks.freedomblogging.com/2009/08/03/ducks-getzlaf-could-miss-start-of-camp/16991/[/url] Will this hurt the Ducks start to the season? As the article notes,...

Leafs Have What It Takes

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
As each game passes, the General Manager in me can't help but wonder about the decisions Ron Wilson makes concerning the youth in Toronto. For years, fans have been demanding a makeover, and finally during this offseason, they were granted one. Brian Burke and company made some key moves and changed the face of the organization. Or did they? If you were to take a qui...

Cleaning House

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
When you talk about cleaning house in hockey it's usually not as intense as what Burke has done. Rarely in todays world do you see a 7 player blockbuster like the one made earlier with the Calgary Flames. And now they've made another big trade. They've cleared off more cap space by somehow managing to convince Anaheim to take Jason Blakes contract basically for nothing....
Toronto Maple Leafs fans went to bed last night with a bitter taste in their mouths after watching their beloved Leafs blow a 3-0 lead against the Vancouver Canucks on Hockey Day in Canada. This morning many started their Sunday as they normally would but what most fans did not expect was to get hit all of a sudden by a Burkie Blast. Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke...

Early but Promising

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
There's no doubt that tonigth the Leafs looked great with the new additions. Let's take a look at each and then the future. Fredrik Sjorstrom isn't supposed to be an offensive player, so an assist tonight on Kulemin's 11th of the season is a huge bonus. But the best thing about him jumping into the offensive side of the game is that it didn't hinder his defensive game a...

Giggy and the future

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
As Burke has built our team from the mesh out, I will talk about the future of our team the mesh out. Giggy, our six mill a year net minder, was a brilliant acquisition by Burke. Shedding Jason Blakes ridiculous contract and, the transparent between the pipes, Vesa Toskala for a goalie who could stop a puck let alone a beach ball was genius. It’s important to note ...
Since joining the Toronto Maple Leafs, Brian Burke has worked feverishly to distance the club from the atmosphere of mediocrity which pervaded during the years of mismanagement that came before. While upgrading the playing staff and reducing the age demographic of the locker room are the two most apparent hallmarks Burke has placed upon the Leafs, his backstage upgradin...

Leafs/Pens Preview

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
The Toronto Maple Leafs are set to visit the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight at the Consol Energy Arena. The Penguins have yet to win at home this season and get another opportunity to erase that stat tonight against a Leafs team that is hoping to remain undefeated. [b]A few fun stats regarding tonight's teams:[/b] Phil Kessel: 2GP 2G 1A 3P is on pace for 82 goals and 1...
Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs are set to host the Florida Panthers at the ACC, and are looking to erase a three game losing streak. While the team has lacked an ability to score after their first two games, Phil Kessel and Clarke MacArthur continue to be the team's offensive powers with little to no help around them. This has sparked line-up changes from head coach Ron...
For the third time this season (and this month) the New York Rangers will clash with the Toronto Maple Leafs. In their first two meetings (4-3 OT win Leafs / 2-1 win Rangers), each have conquered the other on the road. Toronto will look to avoid recent history repeating by earning the victory in this match-up at home. Toronto has scored just 7 goals in their last 5 gam...
Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs will play host to the Ottawa Senators at the ACC in a game that could be a nail biter for all the wrong reasons. For fans who are looking for a tight game, the Leafs have provided endless periods of "so close!" The Senators? They seem to be running down a similar path, despite blowing out two of their opponents last week with five goals for...
Nothing has ever come easy to Jonas Gustavsson in his hockey career. He has had to work for everything that he has achieved and has strived to prove naysayers that he is capable of being a starting goaltender in the NHL. After displaying a dominant performance in his final season with Farjestad of the Swedish Elite League, which included a 1.96 goals against average, 0....
