Keenan to Calgary?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 8
As reported on tsn.ca, it appears Mike Keenan could be back in the NHL - as the head coach of the Calgary Flames. I'm in shock and disbelief. If this is a rumour then TSN got burnt bad but if it's true, God help Kipper!
Brad Lukowich signed a 3 year deal with the Lightning as reported by TSN.com. This is Lukowich's second stint with the Lightning.

Toronto and Kubina.....

Posted Wednesday | Comments 10
Whats the issue really. I'm not exactly writing a blog on this one. But I want your thoughts on why Toronto wants to dump this guy so bad. Me personaly cap space, but who knows it could be just because they want more depth upfront. Of course I see no purpose to trading Kubina if all the Leafs plan on doing is signing Tony Salmaleinen. Which personally I'm excited about ...

Fantasy Rankings

I just read Scott Cullen's ([url]www.tsn.ca/nhl[/url]) previews for the upcoming season and was slightly surprised by his outlook and projections on the top 10 scorers for this upcoming season. He has the top players ranked in the following order: Crosby - 118 pts Thornton - 107 pts Jagr - 105 pts Heatley - 104 pts Ovechkin - 100 pts Lecavalier - 94 pts Hossa...

NHL TV Troubles

Posted Sunday | Comments 2
The NHL's current TV contract in the United States is clearly not working well at all. The NHL made a big mistake by signing a deal with Versus which is owned by Comcast, Comcast offered up the most money and the NHL in all its wisdom went with the highest bidder, not the best solution for league. The NHL tried to land a deal similar to what it had before the lockout, a 5-...
Here is a quote from tsn.ca's (http://www.tsn.ca/fantasy_news/feature/?fid=549) power rankings. [quote] Chris Mason opened the season with two outstanding games and has struggled ever since. Perhaps it's time to take a step back and give backup Dan Ellis some work. [/quote] Okay...I get that the Preds have lost five in a row and that Mason had some shaky games but ...
I went in to last night excited to watch my Habs take on the Leafs and hopefully bring home a victory, which they happily did. As I do not get RDS in my cable package, I hoped and assumed that since this was Habs/Leafs, the game would obviously be aired nationally. Is there really any other game in Canada quite as big as when these two age-old rivals square off? Well, appa...
[url]http://www.tsn.ca/tsn_tal...columnists/darren_dreger[/url] A quote from the piece: [quote]It's believed the Flyers would like to add a more defensive minded forward to their mix, a player capable of shutting down the oppositions offensive threats. Carter could be the bait to get just such a player.[/quote] Someone please tell me this is wrong. For some time, ...
There have been many blogs and and posts debating the validity of calling the Toronto Maple Leafs a .500 hockey team. Most notably is James Duthie's blog over at TSN, who brings up good arguments, but I think his perception is flawed. Some will say the Leafs are at .500 with a record of 12-12-6, while others say that they have a losing record at 12-18. Forunately for the...
Atlanta just finished playing there 2nd stinker of a game in a row, other than Kari Lehtonen and the immortal Ilya Kovalchuk the whole team is just bad right now, I don't know if Hossa is hurt or Ek has hurt his feeling as he hasn't had a trade rumour about Hoss in a while. Either way Hossa is not playing like the Hossa I know and used to love. As I live in Canada I don'...
Let me start out by saying that I'm American. I'm not one of those who acts like every other country is crap and that the American way is the only way. Nonetheless, I am an American and I am proud of it. I have lived in Columbus, Ohio for my entire life. The city is very much a part of me, and I love it dearly (no matter how obsessed it is about Ohio State Football). I wou...
Bob Clarke recently had a few choice comments about the latest Steve Downie tempest in a teapot and, of course controversy followed. Clarke said that he "loved" when Downie punched Leafs forward Jason Blake in the face earlier this week, because Blake ran his mouth about Downie when he was suspended for his hit on Ottawa's Dean McAmmond in the preseason. "Blake was a...

Don't be Surprised

Posted Tuesday | Comments 5
As I write this, John Ferguson Jr. is still the general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, as far as I know anyways. Of course it is completely possible that Ferguson was fired long ago and MLSE has asked him to hold the position while they search for an interim GM. This would explain why there has practically been no roster changes during this catastrophic slump, w...

82 to 84?

Posted Thursday | Comments 1
[img:right]http://images.tsn.ca/images/stories/20071024/kelly_68861.jpg[/img]It hasn't been mentioned quite that much, but earlier this season NHLPA executive director Paul Kelly introduced the idea of changing the season schedule from an 82 game season, to an 84 game season. The NHL board of governors will get the opportunity to vote on the idea this weekend during the Al...

Why Can't They Just LOSE?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
To many Leaf fans, this question has been asked TOO many times. The answer? Well, according to one Matt Stajan, "Stay home if you want us (the Leafs) to lose, just to get positioning in the draft lottery". Of course, there is some paraphrasing in that. I can't find the exact quote, but I saw it on TSN. I'm one of those Leaf fans though. Why can't we just lose? Honestly...
WOW! I must point out that I made the call on this one during the second intermission with posts on Josh Lile's in-game live blog ...

this is wrong, a-channel in london is wrong and this must be retracted by tsn. williams has signed with sens i can guarantee you that my sources are never wrong http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=243386&lid=headline&lpos=secStory_nhl wrong! -SenSnippets(Eklund)
You know when you turn on the TV and hear an update from TSN telling you that Player X has signed a deal for just over 20million over 5 years and then it shows on the screen it was 20.4million? Is it just me or is the biggest joke that 400 thousand US can be considered just over. How many people who read this can make 400k in that 5 year span? Are we really losing persp...
I know that he's put in his time. 14 years at a paper in Peterborough, 16 years at the hockeynews and now with Rogers Sportsnet's and the fan590 on Hockeycentral, but really, c'mon. The Leafs have played 2 pre-season games. 2. They've been in camp for all of a week. They've barely had a second to take in the city, let alone the media throng that is you and Howard. ...

Saturday Morning Coffee

Posted Saturday | Comments 9
Steve Stamkos with the trick last week, welcome to the NHL kid. Alexi Kovalev sent home for being Alexi Kovalev. Sending him home won't work, Alexi is a flake you just have to deal with it. Ain't no party like a Kostitsyn brothers party because a Kostitsyn brother party don't stop. Get those two with the Staal brothers and we have trouble. Have you ever hit black ...
Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock will be named as Team Canada's head coach for the Mens Olympic hockey team at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. The decision was made by one of Babcock's former players, executive director, Steve Yzerman. This had to be a lock with or without the presence of Stevie Y. Babcock has proven himself at the NHL level. He's been to the Cup ...

First Blog....

Posted Friday | Comments 0
I've always thought about blogging. Then I thought, who could really care about my inane thoughts about hockey...or anything else for that matter. Really, aren't bloggers just enthusiasts without press credentials? Perhaps. I do know that I visit this site several times each day. What I've come to realize about bloggers is that, although they may not have access to the...
There are many variables that must be accounted for within an NHL team if they wish to compete for the Stanley Cup. The most important of these qualities can include offensive/defensive awareness, athletic ability and toughness. In the past few years, I have been trying to justify every move that Brian Burke has made with the Leafs. For the most part, it has been quite app...

Darcy's waiting game

Rumors have been floating around for a while on Different players Buffalo is chasing. Names like Stasney, Ryan, and most recently Gagner have all shown up in rumors. It turns out, Buffalo could be setting up something a little better than most would have thought. Recently the Flyers lost another D due to injury. The Oilers and Ducks are in desperate need of a good ...
Nikolaj Ehlers is a great young, proven skilled player who can play in the North American style of hockey. Ehlers aside from having proven independent skill, he's a great team player and a winger to boot and a left winger at that. He thrived on the Halifax Mooseheads playing with talent like Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin. He could easily fit in on a third or even se...
