Rumor: Toronto Turned Down 2nd Round Pick For Cody Franson

According to TSN's Darren Dreger an unnamed team offered the Toronto Maple Leafs a second-round draft pick in a deal for defenseman Cody Franson only to be turned down by GM Brian Burke.  The fact that Burke reportedly turned down a second-round pick for a player that has seen the ice four times this year is lunacy. If the Rangers were the ones that made the offer, given...

Coyotes' constants: Innuendo and uncertainty

Nov. 15, 2011 If I had a dollar for every Canadian media report thats surfaced the past three seasons regarding the sale of the Coyotes, I would have bought the team by now. This is not to disparage my cohorts north of the border not all of them, anyway but when you deal primarily in unnamed sources, rumor and innuendo, what you get is suspect journalism. The latest report surfaced...

Top Defenceman This Season

Nearing the end of October I picked Dion Phaneuf of the Toronto Maple Leafs as the top defenceman in the league so far in the season.  While Phaneuf is having an all star calibre season so far, it is clear that he is no longer the top defenceman so far this year.  Several of the usual suspects are having very strong two-way seasons so far.  They include Zdeno Chara of the Boston...
