You mean he's not going to Nashville?

That was definitely an ugly win, but a win nonetheless. There seems to be a fair amount of bitching about the officiating coming out of New York - I have a few linked on my blog - but I thought the refs were equally brutal to both teams. (They don't always show replays of penalties at GM Place so I ...

I'm very surprised that the Ducks are willing to let him go for nothing. I'm sure they're willing to gain cap space but I'm surprised that they couldn't try to at least get a draft pick in return. Or is there not a demand for Bryzgalov right now?

Interesting. There's a definite advantage in 2001(Umberger), 2003 (Kesler) and 2004 (Schneider), but I think it's too early to tell WRT 2005, 2006 and 2007. Bourdon has an advantage over Mueller right now but I wouldn't right Mueller off just yet. And well, Grabner and White certainly haven't proven...

I partly agree. While it's impossible for us to question a pro athlete's effort, passion and work ethic, it's possible for us to see when they're willing to go into corners, fight for the puck, fight for positioning and move their feet. I have to admit that I was so disgusted last night at the lack ...

What more do you want from Luongo? The Canucks played like crap the last couple of games, were outshot 2:1 (70-35), and yet were still within a goal in the third period. Not to mention he's got as many points as Pretty Boy Pyatt and Brad Isbuster.

Not entirely sure what the rules are, but I'd imagine that for a player to play in the NHL, he'd have to have an NHL contract. And the rights to sign him to an NHL contract would belong to the team that drafted him.

Unless I'm missing something, I don't understand why Tavares or the Leaves would do this? From Tavares' standpoint, if he goes this route, and is drafted by a team that is not the Leaves, he can't play for them until 2011. The only way he'll play in the NHL earlier is to immediately make the team th...

He has to clear waivers after 60 games in the NHL. He's played in 56 so far. I'm sure that's part of the reason he was sent down.

Not too thrilled with this move, but I suppose if anyone's willing to take a two-way minimum deal, it'd be him. I don't see Edler and Bourdon both sticking around. If anything, it'd be Edler. Bourdon needs some serious seasoning and I hope they send him to the Moose. That's fine though. I really don...

Hey guys!

More of a lurker in these parts, but I'll be there with a group of friends.

It's my birthday weekend and I would love nothing more than a back-to-back sweep of Phoenix and San Jose.

See you guys there!

Depending on how much more they spend on call-ups and on whether or not Trevor Linden hits his bonus (not sure what it is but it's worth $200K), the Canucks, I believe, have somewhere around $450K-$600K in cap space. That means at the deadline, they can acquire $1.8m-$2.4m in salaries. Also, if/when...
