Although I believe Rimouski will ultimatley win I don't believe Sydney will get as easy a run as he does in the "Q" as I've said in the past no poke checks in the Dub Sydney, keep your head up.

Big tough Western boys are a time a dozen, look at six of the seven defensemen for this year WJ's were Western boys. Watching here in Kelowna Shea Weber after his injury is now playing like a man amung boys. Crosby wouldn't have near the room on the ice against WHL defensemen. I wouldn't say Big De...

That Phaneuf man is some great looking propect. Listen to the game Ice V's Rockets it was interesting to hear the commentator state that Sutter has said he wants to make his team bigger and more Canadian. I don't think that means actual Canadian rather a more Canadian style. Kessel looked good in th...

Some time ago I made a comment that we never see scoring from the rush any more like LeFleur used to or Skriko or any of those past big time shooters. That.s because of course when you take a stride across the blue line now and you look up you can't see the netting period. All you see is Mr Michelin...

I think I would knowing that within a year most players would be returning any way. Where else do they go ? they play in Europe at one tenth the salary and live away from home, with all those expenses. Right now the PA has it's head that deeply buried in the sand I have to believe they are loosing o...

While I agree with the entertainment angle. I'm surprised the guys that are taking away the jobs are the top end players, they're playing for a pittance compared with what they are paid here. In fact the more that you think about it is it's the Nth American fan that is getting it. Thornton playing f...

Every Nth American that plays in Europe takes away a European local opportunity. Similarly every European that plays in Nth America takes away a N.American local. The big difference is the Europeans limit the number of Nth Americans that are permitted to play over there. Most countries limit it to 4...

This is what th...

Lets be honest there's more than just Ref's and linesmen that will suffer. Many in the NHL and the team offices have been told aLREADY that they're toast come the revolution. I don'y feel to bad about the players or in fact the ref's more the parking lot attendant. They have mortgages they're cling ...
