Jagr leaving the Rangers, possibly play in Russia - 2 year contract with Omsk has been confirmed but he may opt out if he prefers an NHL offer.

A little surprised, but they did float this as a rumor awhile back. I imagine that he'll probably keep some options open just in case, too. I give it about 50/50 for him actually taking the option to go to an NHL team.

Best part of the article, tho?

"I want to thank Glen and Tom and the Rangers. I want to thank all the people who supported me. Being in New York was special.

"And I also want to say to the people like Mike Milbury who made their living by criticizing me all the time, that they can kiss my [butt]."


Heh.

Well, then!

While I spent most of tonight whupping up on various friends and corpmates in some friendly frigate fights in EVE, I -was- paying attention to the moves Howson made after the big trade earlier today.

So, it looks like Howson quite successfully replaced Zherdev's scoring...and for that matter, Fritsche's...with Kristian Huselius.

Dude looks like Beetlejuice (and in fact this is his nickname up in Calgary), but if he keeps having 70+ point seasons? I'm very down with that. He can look like Mae West if he pushes Nash to a 90 point year. :>

Sounds a lot like plan will be to try him with Nash - Hitchcock was talking about his playmaking ability.

So, what next? )

I'm officially switching from hesitant about the last two days of moves to excited. I may be overestimating Voracek and Brassard coming into the lineup this year, but the more I hear about their summer workouts and what they've been doing, I don't think so...

Last year, the team was better than it had ever been, but couldn't quite make the last step.

This year, I really am starting to feel like, even with what Chicago and Detroit did in grabbing Hossa and Campbell, that Columbus really stands a chance to compete in our division, and among the rest of the conference.

Bold but ultimately irrational predictions )

Man, that went on a lot longer than I really meant to....and it's 1:30 now. ACK! This was just supposed to be a quick entry about what I was thinking, not an hour and a half of essay writing!!!

...I'm starting to wonder if I should be thinking about getting a separate blog for Hockey purposes. Do people mind me carrying on like this? Hate it? Like it but would prefer it elsewhere?

Let me know!

...whut?

Dear Tampa Bay Lightning fans.

Prepare to Suck.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAAHAH!

With all the "fun" we had with Doug as President / GM / Head Coach / El Presidente Magnifico, I can't wait to see how he runs Tampa into the ground.

Lemme preface what I'm about to say.

I think that "Eklund" is a boor, a hack, and a shitpeddler who tends to throw darts at the wall until he gets lucky and claims "insider" status, and I generally give his predictions and "insider info" about as much credibility as my last bowel movement.

But, I have to admit that after being sent his blog entry about Why we need to keep hockey in Nashville, it's a well written, passionate piece that I think anyone following the Nashville/KC/Hamilton/Las Vegas Predators team sale and or relocation should read.

Jesus, what has Florida been feeding Alex Auld???

45 shots on goal and no score? Unreal! Psychotic!

Leafs should be up at least 3-0...

Whew! Wellwood finally cracked the wall, and Sundin and Tucker hammered it home in the shootout. Great game!

*Ahem*
