Easy question, what is your answer? Note:  I had added a poll to this post, but it appears we have a broken poll.  So just leave your answer in the comments.

Addressing The Rick Nash Trade Talk

from Jonathan Willis of The Cult Of Hockey, It was only this evening that the most connected man in hockey, TSN’s Bob McKenzie said on national television that “Rick Nash, to our knowledge, is not available.”  It struck me as a sane comment in what is generally an insane time. So I’m very surprised to write that things appear to have changed. Renaud Lavoie, a hockey reporter...

The Network For Hockey

from Helene Elliott of the LA Times, Once upon a time, a new TV network needed sports programming and made a deal to broadcast NHL games. The relationship benefited both parties. Over time the network dropped its gimmicky events, gaining major league sports and major credibility. It came to need the NHL much less than the NHL needed the network, and their relationship deteriorated...

Valentine’s Hangover

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. Good thing the Habs blew another 3rd period lead last night, otherwise I’d be making the predictable St. Valentine’s Day Massacre jokes. Nope, this was just a plain ol’ blown lead. The Habs have been good at this over the course of the season - and last night was no different. After being down 2-0, Montreal stormed back to make it 3-2, only...

Linus Omark is Back on His Feet

Ales Hemsky has not always been the most talked about Oiler when it comes to trade rumours. No, that honour was once held by Linus Omark. Especially when Omark was sent to the AHL Oklahoma City Barons before he could play his final 4 NHL games that would require him to pass through waivers to move up and down from the farm team.

Drew Czerwonka: Healthy and Scoring

From the moment we first met, I knew that we would get along. It’s not as though I’m a difficult person, but the Oilers have been doing an exceptional job of drafting all around good hockey players and people. Drew Czerwonka, captain of the WHL Kootenay Ice is certainly one of them. Continue reading "Drew Czerwonka: Healthy and Scoring"

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, Despite the injuries, the Flames knocked off high-flying Vancouver in a shootout on Saturday night and have lost only two of their last 10. The Leafs turned Mats Sundin Appreciation Night into an unholy disaster against Montreal, and just 10 days after seeming to make an emphatic statement by hammering the Senators in Ottawa, they are now again...

On the trading room floor

I was listening to the post-post game show on WGN radio this past Friday night, when a caller asked about trades. The show’s host Judd Sirott, said that everyone is looking to get a Center or a Defenseman. Well, yeah, except when they’re looking for a goaltender. And as the trading deadline approaches we’ll start seeing teams trying to get that second goalie who can spell...

from Craig Custance of ESPN, Philadelphia has managed to remain near the top of the Eastern Conference for most of the season despite missing its captain for the season with a concussion.

He Could Have Been An NHLer

The NHL has never been a perfect league in its ability to find all of the best talent in the world to play in it.  Many NHL capable talents never have significant NHL careers.  One prime example of that is Yann Danis.  He currently is a star goalie with the Oklahoma City Barons of the AHL.  Danis leads the AHL in saves percentage (.938) and goals against average (1.94).  He...

Quicksand and Passing

I didn’t expect rain last night.  When I heard it coming down, I worried that I may have left things out. It was so unexpected that I couldn’t even remember what I needed to bring in, I didn’t know where to start battening down the hatches. I think the Sharks had a similar experience in St. Louis.  Maybe they didn’t skate long enough in the morning to figure the ice out...
