UPDATES & NEW FEATURESSo, I thought it would be a good idea to keep a list of features which I have added incase anyone was interested, or wanted to know what's new.
**Comments and requests always welcome!!**
Habs - Hawks trade I would makeKostitsyns + Halak + pick
Sharp, Seabrook + late pick
Gives the Habs a proven top 6 winger, solves the K situation and they get a puck-moving defenseman to limit the damage caused by Markov's long term absence
Hawks solve their cap issues, get a very capable goalie that can takeover if Huet fails and get a good top6 winger and reunite Sergei K with Pat Kane.
Devils Own Shanahanhttp://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=293313
Brendan Shanahan has decided that he will not play for the New Jersey Devils this season.
The 40-year old winger, who re-signed with the Devils over the summer with the intention of playing a 22nd NHL campaign, released a statement on Thursday that said that he has reconsidered his plans for the coming season.
"When I signed this past summer, Lou Lamoriello, Jacques Lemaire, and I agreed that if we were unable to find a suitable fit in which I would be able to compete and contribute at the level I expect from myself, then I would simply step aside," said Shanahan in the statement. "I have great respect for Lou, Jacques, and the entire Devils' organization. This decision is both mutual and amicable."
Shanahan did not announce his retirement, however. He said that he will take a couple of weeks with his family to consider his plans for the future.
With 656 goals, Shanahan ranks 11th on the all-time goal-scoring list. A three-time Stanley Cup winner with the Detroit Red Wings, Shanahan signed with the Devils as a free agent midway through last season, and returned to the team where he started his NHL career in 1987. In 34 games for New Jersey last year, Shanahan counted six goals and eight assists.
He re-signed for one year with the Devils as an unrestricted free agent on August 5.
Shanahan has also played for the St. Louis Blues, Hartford Whalers, and New York Rangers. He was chosen with the second overall pick by the Devils in the 1987 draft.
I can't believe Lou manages to pull this shit off every time haha.
Upgrading to new featuresThere might be some glitches and bugs around the site right now as we're upgrading the features Don't panic.
*OFFICIAL* Habs Discussion threadFigured I'd start one of these up for when there aren't habs blogs up and as to not spam up other threads. Fans of other teams feel free to start discussion threads for your teams too, if there's a lot of interest for any one team we'll start creating team sub-forums.
24 cups. Discuss.
