102 We’ll miss ya, Joe

Joe Sakic always played the game with class, and with sure-fire, first-ballot Hall of Fame skill. Yet just about every time I hear his name I think about the 1997 summer, when the Rangers kicked Mark Messier out the door and thought they would steal Little Joe from the Avalanche…

218 Bye, bye, Nik

If it’s true that Nik Zherdev’s agent is looking for $4 M or more in arbitration, then he’s done as a Ranger, as Larry Brooks wrote today. Glen Sather will walk away from an award in that neighborhood, making Zherdev an unrestricted free agent, which is obviously the goal here.…

80 Trying to understand Brashear

Somebody posted this link last week, on the day the Rangers signed Donald Brashear. Whether you like or dislike (or love or hate) the signing of this arch-enemy, you still might find this story interesting and it may help you, as it did for me, understand some parts of Brashear’s…

152 See, sometimes you agree

I see that Larry Brooks, in his Slap Shots column today, feels similar to the way most of the people here feel about the signing of Donald Brashear. Yet I think that most of you guys will change your minds as soon as he has a couple of fights at…

270 Antropov gone (updated)

Don’t know if you have seen this yet, but Nik Antropov signed with Atlanta for four years, $4M per. Not bad money. Wonder if they could have avoided giving Brashear $1.4 M per, if they could have afforded to keep Antropov. Enforcers are all over the place, and just as…

272 Heatley vetoes again

Looks like Dany Heatley is getting his $4 million from Ottawa, and Edmonton is getting stuck again. Heatley again declined the request to waive his no-trade clause, even after personal visits from Kevin Lowe and Steve Tambellini of the Oilers’ front office. So he remains in Ottawa, $4 million richer,…

176 Biggest day of the summer … maybe

First I want to step completely out of character and give big props to Glen Sather. Seriously. Look at his last four most important days: He hired John Tortorella, the best coach he has ever hired in either Edmonton or New York. He worked with his tight salary cap and…

236 No deal!

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun says in his blog that the Heatley-to-Edmonton deal has been killed by Heatley, and that he will play for the Senators next season. Hard to imagine that. But the Senators are on the hook for the $4 million, and the price to get Heatley…
