Josh Rimer, from NHL Home Ice on SiriusXM Radio, tweeted this yesterday: “From what I'm told Gardiner might have a real short stay in minors as Leafs could be making a trade in next 24-48 hrs.”
I don’t normally place much stock in sources outside of Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger, because any jackass can fabricate rumours if there’s a logical basis, but Rimer, as far as the “Twitterverse” is concerned, is a legitimate source. Rimer later emphasized that a trade “could” happen, and nothing is set in stone.

Adam Foote might be the only NHL defenseman more despised by Wings faithful than Chris Pronger over the past 15 seasons. That's a big might. Pronger is strong, mean and skilled; he's a player you hate for your squad to play against but would love to have him on your team. Whether it was with St. Louis, Edmonton or Anaheim, Pronger gave the Wings trouble in the postseason with crunching hits and booming point shots. His battles with Tomas Holmstrom were epic and memorable.
Unfortunately the concussion epidemic sweeping the league also struck Pronger who is shut down for the remainder of the season with post-concussion syndrome. It's a detriment to the league when any play...

Finally got around to installing Windows XP on my new laptop so I was able to check my e-mails. I'm totally interested in Kaberle seeing our powerplay could be better and last time I checked Tomas was one of the premier defensemen in the league. Let me know what you think.

Pierre/Bob, I'm shopping Kaberle around the league and wanted to know if you guy...
Yesterday the Phoenix Coyotes acquired centre Cal O’Reilly from the Nashville Predators for a fourth-round pick in 2012. The trade is conditional upon him passing a physical, but it's likely he will make his debut Wednesday as the Coyotes face the Avalanche.
The trade comes in the middle of lots of buzz surrounding the status of another centre, Kyle Turris, and his prolonged holdout that Phoenix general manager Don Maloney has stated publicly will not end in a trade. Though the hopeful among Coyotes' camp are thinking maybe this trade will cause some movement in that department.

As July 1st approached and all of Preds nation waited to see what their GM would do after their most successful season in history there was excitement in the air. Many thought that Poile would dive in to the pool of FA and sign some big players as the team made it clear offense is necessary. While 3 days later, Predators fans have been left confused and still waiting.
On July 1st Predator fans did what they always do, sit and watch as players that they thought their team could sign get grabbed by other teams. Fortunately this year some of the signings were ridiculous and I am glad that Poile stayed away from the frenzy. It wasn’t till the 3rd that Poile did someth...
The Philadelphia Flyers shocked many again Monday afternoon by trading popular forward Darroll Powe to the Minnesota Wild. Powe was not a goal scoring player exactly, but he was affordable and did exactly what he was paid to do every single game.
Every team needs guys that are going to be counted on for their penalty killing more than anything. Star players help to kill off penalties as well, but it’s not always practical for them to total up so much ice time killing penalties when they are needed for an offensively heavy role. Powe was that guy for the Flyers. Powe was a ball of energy for the Flyers. He skated hard and hit harder. You could not deny that Powe gave 110 percen...
Predators had a fairly calm draft compared to other teams, while others were making huge trades to either better their team or to dump salary, the Predators remained the same. The Predators had 7 picks this year and as well unveiled their new jerseys and logo.
Their first pick of the draft was at number #38 which was given to them in the Arnott trade, and they selected the first goalie Magnus Hellberg. The odd part is that he was not rated as the top goalie prospect, but was in the top 5. He was taken as the Preds saw similarities between him and Lindback and Rinne, which bolds well for the team.
