No Surgery For Sundin

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Sundin has met with doctors and Sweden, and he will not need surgery. He has a small tear in his labrum, but it will NOT require surgery to repair. When this story first broke I was sent two newspaper articles from Sweden, talking about how angry Sundin was with this. The belief around people I talked to is that one side of ownership (Tanenbaum) wanted Ferguson fired a...

Paging Don Waddell!

Posted Friday | Comments 0
March 15, 2002: The Atlanta Thrashers trade Ruslan Zainullin to the Calgary Flames for Marc Savard. In 182 games with the Thrashers, Savard went on to score 63 goals and 196 points. After the 2005-2006 season, Savard priced himself out of Atlanta, signing with the Boston Bruins for 4 years, at $5 million per season. Since that point, Thrashers GM Don Waddell has continuous...
With the Leafs training camp about open soon they have 10 defensemen challenging for spots this coming fall. With Kaberle, McCabe and Kubina all being locks with their big contracts that leave’s three spots open for seven defensemen. Hall Gill would have been a lock but with loads of young D they could fly right by him in the depth chart. Ian White would se...
With this being my first blog entry at Hockeybuzz, I figured I'd start by doing a general outline of the Canucks in the offseason and the team at its current state. The team, even though they finished top of the Northwest Division (Typically considered the most balanced, if not hardest, division in the league. Though I'd have probably given hardest to Pacific), we...

Is it time to change the D?

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Well here we are 9 games into the season and the Leafs have scored the most goals in the NHL who would have though that when the season started, but there is one little problem we have also let the most goals in the league thus far and look to continue to do so if we dont make some moves with our defensemen. The Leafs penalty killing is ranked 28th and its not hard to s...
Lets say hypothetically the rumoured McCabe for Van Ryn swap happens. Who do you like better as a hockey player. Lets put aside the contract situations, the infamous own goal brain cramp, the pure hatred Leaf fans have towards #24. Is this a good hockey trade for the Leafs? Is Van Ryn an upgrade or a downgrade? I'm curious to hear peoples opinions from a pure hockey p...
The woes of the New Jersey Devils; but doesn't every team have them? Trade this guy, sign that guy, buy him out, waive that guy, fire him, he should retire, blah blah blah. I swear if we the fans dictated what moves our teams made, we'd see more people come and go than on the Apprentice. Since The Devil's 2008-2009 "Red Bull" campaign ended, the same ideas and opinions ...

1st Leaf Blog

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Hello Fellow Leaf Nation Fanatics; I have been a die-hard leaf fan since I was 4 years old. I remember my first leaf game was against the Colorado Rockies and every Saturday night was spent watching the Leafs on my parent's bed in black and white. Since I was a goalie, Mike Palmateer was my hero and cried when he got traded to Washington Thinking that providing my ba...

Don't Underestimate White

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Ian White, he is perhaps the Toronto Maple Leafs' most underrated defenseman. And how, you ask? It's simple: White has the potential to put up 10-15 goals and 40-45 points next season. After reading through The Hockey News' fantasy pool guide magazine, I couldn't help but notice White was nowhere to be found in their list of 350+ projections of skaters and goalies. So I...
Why is it that media and the rest of the hockey world seems to consistently overlook Ian White? So far this year, he has helped his team put pucks in the net(16 Pts), helped his team keep pucks out of their own net ( 49 Blocked Shots, +11 ) , and most of all, he comes to work hard each and every game. (Which he averages 22:40 ToI\G.) To have 16 points and be a plus ...

Random Leafs Thoughts

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Toronto is currently in 13th in the East. They are only 2 points back of 8th place Montreal with a game in hand. While there are teams between the Leafs and 8th with games in hand as well, this is an undeniable turnaround for the franchise this season. Makes one wonder if they are a playoff team. I'm sticking with my preseason prediction that the team will finish 7th in th...
As the 2009 calender year comes to a close with the Maple Leafs three points behind a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Brian Burke will need to look at making some decisions in 2010 and the first one on his list needs to be the resigning of defensemen Ian White. The 25 year old on many nights this season has been the teams best rearguard and overall it's not much of...

The Game of Risk

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Earlier this morning the Leafs made one heck of a move. One that could end up being looked at as an incredibly stupid one. Brian Burke was able to take Dion Phaneuf away from the Calgary Flames, and move that I was excited about...until I saw what they traded. I was ok with giving up Mayers and Stajan, but Hagman and White are not sitting well with me. Niklas Hagman ...
In evauluating the trades, any hockey pundit will tell you that you need to wait for an extended period of time down the road to see who 'wins' a trade. I on the other hand see a way to evaluate this trade right now, I think there is a simple way to look at this from a Leafs fan perspective and be more than happy with it. For starters, let me say that I think Phaneuf...

A Turning Point

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
One play can often be the turning point in a game, but rarely do you see one play possibly be the turning point in a season. That might have been the case this evening. Tonight, in front of a sold out crowd at the Pengrowth Saddledome, Curtis Glencross was awarded a penalty shot with 1:30 remaining in the 2nd period. He skated back towards Kiprusoff who was smiling...

Whiteout in Cowtown?

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Is it just me or are there a lot of people in Calgary cheering for the Phoenix Coyotes? Case in point, I was out on Friday night at a bar on 17th avenue grabbing a couple of beverages after the Hitmen game, while catching glimpses of the Yotes Wings game on the screen behind me. And to my amazement, and less than the time it took for me to order a beer an enormous cheer...
I try to justify the Dion Phanuef and Jokinen trades over and over again. I still think Dion was a fair trade, we gave them a player who has a ton of upside (debatable) and we took one of their best d-men and two of their best goal scorers in return. Jokinen returned a former 30 goal scorer and a player who had been maligned by his coach and needed a move. Now I read th...

Sentiments Vs Necessities

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
The wounds of suffering a third consecutive first round exit aren't as painful as they were a few weeks ago, but still persist. With the team's future, along with general manager Lou Lamoriello's intentions uncertain going into the off season, a lot of question marks surround this Devils team. Some fans still ask what went wrong and what has to be done to snap the Devils o...

The perfect solution.

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Sometimes life hands you a perfect solution. Ian White is really under rated and he knows it, he was 8th in goals by a defenseman last year and 29th in points by a defenseman, no one talks about it but that is really good. As his agent you would look at comparables right? Who also had 38 points and what do they get paid? I'll tell you. Campbell- $7.1 Million Kubina...
You are Flames Management, you are at the entry draft and looking for solid prospects to fill your cupboards and you don't have a first or second round pick but you do have a lot of later round picks. One school of thought says that you could draft guys that have shown promise in their first eligible year, like Max Reinhardt who had a terrific last half of the season. The ...
When I saw that Ian White signed, the first thing I read after it was referring to what moves the Flames were going to make to allow this to happen. So to be clear, they don't need to make any. Simply demoting expensive players under the guise that they were outplayed in camp would suffice. In reality having two guys in your minors who are legitimate nhl'rs would be a huge...
I think we've had a reasonable amount of games to discern a few things for ourselves about this Flames team and the individual players on it. After a hard fought win last night it was clear where the weak spots were and where the bright spots were. Rinklighter commented he was in the 300's on Vetter's blog and could see the face off domination. I could see a few things fro...

Kippermania

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Kipper got his first shutout of the season as the flames blanked the preds 1-0. A really physical game that saw some big hits thrown by either sides. The Positives Kiprusoff Kipper with an amazing effort blanked the preds with 34 saves on the night. Kipper has been playing tremendously and 5 games in, he seems to already be in midseason form. Sarich With a few...
Last nights loss was about small things. How many times have you heard Don Cherry say, "Get your sticks outta the way there!!" when talking about defending shots? It's beaten into player from an early age, let the goalie see the shot and take the body. On the winning goal Ian White got burned AGAIN after tipping a pretty harmless shot. He stuck his stick out, the puck defl...
In the wake of a wave of unsubstantiated Jarome Iginla speculation, Darryl Sutter decided to distract Flames fans by making another trade to complain about. Ian White and his facial hair as well as Brett Sutter are gone, replaced by Anton Babchuk and Tom Kostopoulos. My immediate knee-jerk biased reaction: it looks to me like an about equal trade in value, but a trade that...
It’s plain and simple. The Carolina Hurricanes have to make the play-offs this year. And, the good news is …they are knocking on the door. So, with the trade deadline fast approaching, it is not surprising to hear that Jim Rutherford, the Canes GM, is busy trying to make some moves. Reports suggest the Canes were among three teams that had a real shot at Ottawa’s...
With all the hoopla surrounding the need for a 1st line centre in Toronto, a key idea is being missed. It's true: Brian Burke [i]needs[/i] to acquire a legitimate, 1st-line centre this offseason if he wants any shot at even making the playoffs this year. However, I'd like to point out, that the Leafs are still missing a much-needed cog to any playoff teams chances: A p...

How Do We Get Parise?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Clarkson is now a player who is in the talks of being traded. Mr. Todd Cordell's blog had talked about this. Clarkson who is recieving about $3 million seems like the perfect escape. Most people say "TRADE ROLSTON!" Well...Rolston has a NTC. White?!...NTC Rolston who I think has a hell of a slapshot hasnt been doing much. We are paying him for 25 goals......

"I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People." "This was not about politics" Really Tim? If it's not about politics then what exactly were you talking about in the first quote, in which you defended your decision to not show up to the white house with your fellow teammates? If it's not ab...
Here is more evidence that hockey players are the best shit-talkers in all of sports. While I believe that both sides need to make concessions in order to reach a fair deal, you have to give Ian White some credit for speaking his mind and not holding back. White's comments are blowing up Twitter (to the extent that hockey can blow up Twitter). I'd like to see a NHL rep...
