PHILLYBURBS.COM/DELAWARE COUNTY TIMES: both reported yesterday Philadelphia Flyers chairman Ed Snider wants to retain captain Peter Forsberg, hoping to extend his contract and vowing to do whatever it takes to keep the talented Swede in Philadelphia. Forsberg was pleased by Snider's comments and hopes to meet with him soon to discuss his and the team's future.

(Edit: It seems like by now someone would have been able go put together a boot for Peter's crooked foot...as apparently right now that's his main problem. It probably causes part of his groin issues as well...seeing as how he has compensate somehow for the discomfort. I'd just as soon he stays in Philly, but if he does stay they need to yank the C off of him, and give it to a more stable [physically, and emotionally] player.)

And Lappy had his league leading 14th fight. Sounds like it would've been a great game to watch.

Hope you didn't see this one, Pendejo. You didn't miss much if you did. Ok, Stastny made some great plays and they had almost 50 SOG, but the rest = le suck.

I don't get to see many games here in San Diego, but I have been able to watch a few via yahoo...and I listen online quite a bit. I think I'll get to see the game on NBC this Sunday.

This is exactly where the NHL is screwing up. they force peeps like pendejo to (buy) NHL packages so they can watch they games they want. Most won't even come close to doing what pendejo is doing to even listen to games, they lost all that loyalty during the work stoppage and they need to earn it back and televise (free games) they are putting the cart in front of the donkey.

Default Sadowski: Penguins' tale echoes of Quebec

http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drm...340037,00.html

The parallels are eerily similar.

A downtrodden hockey team finishes last in its division for several seasons, misses the playoffs and begins to build a powerhouse with young talent fetched with high draft picks.

Just when it appears the team is ready to make a run at a championship, the franchise is sold and moved to another city.

Sound familiar?

It happened with the Quebec Nordiques, who moved to Colorado in 1995 and won two Stanley Cups as the Avalanche, and the Pittsburgh Penguins could be on the same path.

Led by NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby and a host of other young stars, the Penguins are making a strong bid to earn a playoff spot for the first time since Mario Lemieux's comeback season in 2000-01.

The Penguins already have surpassed their points totals of the previous two seasons and are near a pace for 100 points, something they have done only three times. (It's remarkable the 1991 and 1992 Stanley Cup teams only had 88 and 87 points.)

But unless the Penguins strike a deal with state and local officials to finance a replacement for 45-year-old Mellon Arena, the team and all its fresh talent will be heading elsewhere - possibly Kansas City, Mo. - after this season.

And the Penguins should only get better once youngsters such as Crosby, 19, Jordan Staal, 18, Evgeni Malkin, 20, and Marc-Andre Fleury, 22, mature. All were the first or second players taken in the past four NHL entry drafts, the rewards for four consecutive last-place finishes in the Atlantic Division.

Fleury has made the biggest strides. Rushed into action after being the first pick in 2003, he wound up in the minors each of the past two seasons and began this season with a 17-41-8 record as a Penguin.

Playing behind a much better group than in his first two NHL seasons, Fleury has learned to relax and already has posted 26 wins and four shutouts.

So far, coach Michel Therrien has been able to keep the players' minds on hockey when the possibility of moving after the season could easily turn into a damaging distraction.

That would be a real shame, and so would leaving Pittsburgh. Fans that stuck with the Penguins through all the bad times deserve to see them grow into one of the NHL's elite.

Default Is Ryan Smyth expendable?

I know it would be impossible but i would looooooooove to see this guy in a avs sweater...

EDMONTON - If the Edmonton Oilers believe they still have a shot at making the playoffs on, say, Feb. 25, general manager Kevin Lowe likely won't entertain any thoughts of trading free-agent winger Ryan Smyth before the NHL deadline two days later.

But what if the Oilers are 10 points behind the Minnesota Wild for the last post-season spot in the Western Conference in two-and-a-half weeks?

Then what?
Ryan Smyth: Trade clock is tickingView Larger Image View

What if Lowe can't get close to re-signing the 30-year-old left-winger to a four- or five-year contract as the trade deadline clock ticks down?

Doesn't Lowe, at least, have to pay attention to what other Stanley Cup contending teams might offer? You can be rest assured that GMs from teams like the Anaheim Ducks, Dallas Stars, Detroit Red Wings, San Jose Sharks and Carolina Hurricanes would be on their cellphones if the Oilers fall out of the playoff picture in the next few weeks.

What happens if a powerhouse team offers their first- or second-best prospect or a first-round draft pick for Smyth, who bleeds Oilers blue and is the most popular player with local fans.

What if Anaheim GM Brian Burke, for example, offered 19-year-old winger Bobby Ryan, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2005 NHL entry draft, because they could use Smyth to play on a line with Teemu Selanne and Andy McDonald?

Maybe Carolina GM Jim Rutherford says, "here's Andrew Ladd and a draft pick."

Wouldn't Lowe have to listen? Sure. But nobody has called about Smyth -- yet.

Nobody has called up Lowe with a pitch that makes him say, "hmmm!"

NHL general managers obviously feel that Smyth, who's having a terrific season and is on pace to score more than 40 goals despite missing 10 games, will re-sign with the Oilers. Or maybe they don't want to give up anybody of value now for a rental because they might be able to sign him themselves on July 1.

The Oilers are reportedly offering Smyth between $4.25 million US and $4.5 million a season, which probably isn't enough for a player of his calibre.

Smyth is looking for both a long-term contract and more money, quite possibly a five-year, $25-million deal. The Oilers may be willing to sign him for five years, but may not be willing to part with the cash. How about a four-year package?

Smyth turns 31 on Feb. 21, so a five-year pact may be a reach for Lowe and company.

When Glen Sather was in charge of the Oilers, the team didn't sign free-agent goaltender Curtis Joseph before the 1998 trade deadline and opted not to move him because they needed to make the playoffs and make some money for the owners. Cujo got the club into the post-season and they won a round before he left for the Toronto Maple Leafs, grabbing a four-year $24 million deal.

During Lowe's tenure, Doug Weight was traded when money was definitely an issue. He also dealt Bill Guerin before it became one.

Lowe thought defenceman Eric Brewer was going to cost him too much down the road, so he had no trouble putting him in the Chris Pronger deal with the St. Louis Blues in August 2005.

That has always been Lowe's modus operandi: Get something if you can't afford a player. But Weight and Guerin were moved before the salary cap and Lowe absolutely knew he couldn't pay either star in the old free-spending NHL.

For now, Lowe still plans on signing Smyth before the trade deadline. Lowe feels Smyth, who was sixth overall in the 1994 draft, is the perfect Oiler.

As for Smyth, he also has to know he has a good thing going here. Neither the Oilers, nor Smyth's agent have slammed down the phone because they're insulted with negotiations thus far.

Lowe seems more interested right now in acquiring a puck-moving defenceman. He's a buyer, not a seller.

The Oilers are being careful about the Bruins' Brad Stuart. Boston has reportedly asked for more from the Oilers (a roster player and a solid prospect or a high draft pick). They're not going all out to get him because, like most teams, they feel Stuart wants to return to California (his wife is from there) and there's a good chance he'll sign a free-agent deal this summer with the Los Angeles Kings. His old GM, Dean Lombardi, drafted Stuart for the Sharks.

Default Hockey joke

I got a chuckle out of this...


Sean Avery and Mark Messier decide to go ice-fishing together. They drive out to a nice patch of ice and bring all their ice fishing tools. They find a good spot and begin to cut into the ice. Suddenly, a voice rings out of nowhere:

"There are no fish under the ice..."

Startled, the two look around and see nobody. They pick up their stuff and move to another part of the ice. The voice rings out again:

"There are NO fish under the ice..."

They move again and start cutting again. The voice announces:

"There are NO FISH under the ice!"

Avery looks up and says, "Is that you God?" And the voice replies:

"No, this is the announcer for GM Place. Now get the hell off of the ice!"

Confirmed deal: Stuart, Primeau and a Conditional 4th to the Flames for Ference and Kobasew.

It's a good deal for a potential run, and if Stuart can resign, it'll have been a great deal(But we won't get the 4th). Definitely the last of our moves.

Good or Bad? I personally love it, from the Flames' perspective.

Boston has made some terrible trades lately: Thornton, Jurcina, and now Stuart. Actually that conditional pick in the Stuart trade is the pick the B's are owed for Jurcina.

Nagy goes to Dallas for Tjarnqvist and a 1st.

Looks like Kolzig got hurt in practice today, so that should put the Caps in seller's mode if they weren't already.

Nonsense Mt...they've got a bunch of gutless pukes on the roster in Philly. Otherwise how do you explain how much they've sucked this year...and still manage to stomp the Deadthings.

Saying that...how is your boy coming along in his driving. Will we see him on the circuit soon? You haven't stunted his growth have you? From your report that youngster is one who completely understands what it means to put the pedal to the metal. Don't you take that away from him Mt...don't you do that.

Back on topic. F Detroit!!!!!

You're right. Did I mention I have a sinus infection and it's probably gone up to my brain by now? It's clouding all judgement I have concerning non-important things like the Flyers.

Ha ha...we do not discuss my son driving at this house. That's just asking for trouble. We never discussed it before and look what happened!

He's taken on wrestling. Just started. Big step for my kiddo, cuz honestly he's kind of a wimp. We'll see how this works out.

Don't look now but the two Av rookies are finally getting a mention....


The race for the Calder Trophy boasts another bumper crop of rookies this season including forward Evgeni Malkin, who is providing spark for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Matthew Carle, an offensively gifted defenseman who is averaging 19 minutes of ice time per game with the San Jose Sharks, and center Anze Kopitar, who has been a standout with the Los Angeles Kings. But don’t think any player has a lock on the award. Not by a long shot.

Keep an eye on Paul Stastny of the Colorado Avalanche and Dustin Penner of the Anaheim Ducks; both are enjoying outstanding freshman campaigns. And don’t forget the Avalanche’s other rookie phenom - Wojtek Wolski, who got off to a great start with three goals in his first four games. Today, Wolski ranks among the league’s rookie leaders in all offensive categories including goals, assists, points and shooting percentage. He joins Stastny to form one of the elite young tandems in the league and provide the Avalanche plenty of reason to be optimistic about the future.

"They are both young kids that we think have tremendous offensive upside,” says Colorado head coach Joel Quenneville. "Wolski has an NHL shot that is quick and has some pace to it. He is big and strong and he can also make plays. He and Stastny had some chemistry right out of training camp. Wolski’s future is great.”

His past is not too shabby either.

Colorado’s first-round pick (21st overall) in the 2004 Entry Draft earned the Red Tilson Trophy as the most outstanding player in the Ontario Hockey League last season where he collected 47 goals and 81 assists in only 56 games with the Brampton Battalion. He added a second piece of silverware last season as the recipient of the William Hanley Trophy for being the league’s most gentlemanly player. All of these awards came after he made an impressive NHL debut in 2005-06 by notching six points in nine regular-season games with the Avs.

That type of production would usually mean “Go get an apartment kid, you’re staying with the big team.” But patience is a mantra in Colorado and being a minus player during his debut last season, Wolski returned to his junior club for an extra year of seasoning.

Did Wolski sulk about the detour? No. The kid has too much character. That character comes to him naturally as the son of a Polish stonemason who journeyed to Canada after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Wojtek was only 4-years-old when he moved with his family to Mississauga, Ontario. They were short on money when they arrived in their new land, but long on character. That quality showed through in Wolski last season as he embraced the challenge of returning to junior hockey - much to the chagrin of his OHL opponents.

"Character… that’s why he was able to go back to junior and take off,” says San Jose Sharks Chief Scout Tim Burke. “He comes from a good family, a hard-working family that came over from Poland. He’s a good kid. You don’t get ‘I’m this and I’m that.’ He didn’t go back (to junior) with an attitude that 'I’m coming back from the NHL.' Being sent down … that’s a rude awakening. He wasn’t in the NHL last year for just a week. Wolski was there longer than most guys and then when Colorado sent him back he led that Brampton team and he didn’t miss a beat.

“There was no lackluster play,” continues Burke. “What a year he had last year! He dominated the league and people talk about him on the power play, well, you should have seen him in junior. You name it … shoot … look away and shoot … bang … he surprises you … quick diagonal passes. Wolski is gifted. He’s exciting. I watched him a lot in Brampton because we had a kid that was drafted there. Wolski played pretty good in Colorado last year and then they sent him back to junior and he tore that league up. That’s the good thing about this kid, when he came back he was exciting.”

The 6-foot-3, 200 pound winger again showed his character after being a healthy scratch against the Anaheim Ducks on Nov. 22. What did Wolski do about it? He let his actions do the talking, responding with a four point night on Nov. 25 and figured in all goals in the Avalanche's 4-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks. That takes character. But not character alone. It also takes a ton of talent.

"He’s got a lot of moves,” Burke said. “He’s got stronger and he can really find secondary options. This kid is a good player, a real good player. I don’t know if he is going to end up being a center or a wing, but from an offensive standpoint of a hockey player being able to make quick plays and use the puck with speed this kid has got it. I think he’s like a hybrid because he can both shoot and pass.”

Wojtek Wolski scored three goals in his first four games, and is among the League leaders in all rookie offensive categories.

The Avalanche team captain agrees.

"Wojtek is big, he’s crafty with the puck and he has a lot of speed,” says Joe Sakic. “He used his size well and he has a great shot. There’s not too many guys that go to the net like him. He gets that puck and he challenges the defense. He is an exciting player and is always in the right spot.”
Wolski admits to being in the right spot in more ways than one.

“Every chance I could have got to succeed I definitely got,” says Wolski. “Right from the beginning of junior hockey I got to stay home and I got a good opportunity to play on the power play for four years. I’ve been working hard with the Avalanche and the guys on my team have definitely welcomed me. My teammates have tried to help me along and the coaching staff has given me a great opportunity to do well and to stay in the NHL. I’ve got such a good chance to play with so many great players here to help me along. Players like Joe (Sakic) and Pierre (Turgeon) tell me about their experiences as a young player so the support from the players around you really helps.”

Support is important when you’re winning but it’s even more critical when you are not winning hockey games.

“That’s so true,” says Wolski. “When you are not winning games people are not happy and the organization isn’t happy so things can change pretty quickly. But if you have that support with guys helping you out and everybody is working hard there’s not much more you can ask as a team.”

And what is expected from Wolski as an individual?

“I’m trying to create as many opportunities as I can every time I’m on the ice,” says Wolski. “But I have to realize that the better you play defensively the more you have the puck. That’s the one thing that the coaching staff try to make sure that I remember. I try to make sure that we get the puck back as quickly as possible. Keeping a third guy high in the offensive zone is definitely helping with that and getting back and picking up a guy is important. I’m expected to score goals more than being a defensive force but I try my best in all areas of the game.”

The talented winger is big enough to compete in the trenches, along the wall and in front of the net, but there is one element of play in the NHL that surprised him a little.

"The quickness of the game,” says Wolski. “It’s a long season with 82 games, but guys seem to come in every single night and play hard. You definitely have to be ready both physically and mentally for each game. Sometimes it wears on you with so much going on but there’s no place I would rather be than playing in the NHL. I look forward to it every day.”

I really would be upset with this kind of trade. I know, its probably best for the club, but man how many favorites can a gal lose in three years?!

From Spectors:
LAPERRIERE ON THE BLOCK?

RDS.CA: Luc Gelinas reported yesterday it's possible the Colorado Avalanche might place gritty forward Ian Laperriere on the trade block should the club fall further out of the playoff race by the deadline. Gelinas suggests Lapierrere might be of interest to Montreal Canadiens GM Bob Gainey, who isn't likely to sacrifice the future to acquire Peter Forsberg or Todd Bertuzzi for a quick fix to his club's current woes.
