  1. NHL biased to Canadian teams? Bettman doesnt want to give Canada another team, only US markets. And pretty sure he would poop a brick and there ever was an all Canadian stanley cup final. I would guess divisions would get rearranged the next year to prevent it happening again. A lot of Canadian viewers will watch a 2 US team stanley cup, I dont think there would be as many US viewers of an all Canadian final. Bettman has, and seem to continue to only care about expanding/promoting hockey in the US. Bigger markets, more people, more money, I get it, but dont see a Canadian bias.
  2. Of the 4 teams remaining I would just as soon see the Islanders win, but I think it will be tough to get by Tampa. The lightning added the one thing they were missing last year, truculence. But then I picked Colorado Boston to be in the final, so what do I know... In my defense though, I did make that pick before Rask decided to go home.
  3. Around here we believe TSN stands for Toronto's Sports Network
  4. Home Toronto Maple Leafs Maple Leafs News & Rumors: Is Frederik Andersen Off to the Hurricanes? BY THE OLD PROF SEPTEMBER 4TH, 2020 Today, Stephen from Editor In Leaf proposed a trade where the Toronto Maple Leafs move Frederik Andersen to the Carolina Hurricanes for right-shot defenseman Dougie Hamilton. I have two thoughts about this trade proposal. Related: Maple Leafs Radical Trade Rumors: Nylander, Ekblad, Nurse & Subban First, it’s typical of what we’ve heard regarding Andersen. Rumors are ramping up that he’ll soon be gone. Second, if general manager Kyle Dubas could make that trade, I think he would do it quickly. Dubas Stirred the Pot with the Kasperi Kapanen Trade Dubas stirred the pot when he moved Kasperi Kapanen early in the Maple Leafs’ offseason. That trade seemed to immediately fuel speculation that management wasn’t done dealing as they try to improve the team’s top weakness: defense. Kasperi Kapanen, former Toronto Maple Leaf (Amy Irvin / The Hockey Writers) In this edition of Maple Leafs News & Rumors, I want to take a look around at some of the rumors about Andersen and to assess how accurate they might be. What Have We Heard about Andersen’s Leaving? The first thing we know about a possible Andersen trade is that hockey insiders believe it will happen, and they often get it so wrong it’s laughable. On the other hand, they often nail it. Mostly, however, what we hear falls somewhere between those two spectrums. And, Chris Johnston Says? Concerning Andersen, Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston reported that there’s real interest in the Maple Leafs goalie and it’s increasing. In fact, Andersen has reportedly heard the trade buzz and might be preparing himself to leave. Related: Worst Toronto Maple Leafs Trades During a Sept. 2 radio interview on SN590, Johnston reported: “I think there’s a good chance Freddy isn’t playing in Toronto next season. Teams have interest and the Leafs are taking the calls. Even heard from Andersen’s side that Freddy seems to be preparing as if he won’t be back with Toronto.” And, Elliotte Friedman Says? Elliotte Friedman confirmed that Andersen’s name is churning in the trade rumor mill. He noted specifically that the Hurricanes are interested. Frederik Andersen, Toronto Maple Leafs (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) Recently Friedman wrote: “The Carolina Hurricanes have interest in Frederik Andersen, but Toronto’s made it clear it has no desire to make a move just for the sake of change. If it happens, it’s for an upgrade, which means the Maple Leafs could wait to see how a loaded group of goaltending free agents shakes out.

  5. Hey hey now, I would be doing my happy dance if they ended up in Saskatchewan !
  6. Taken from TSN. for goalies. And would anyone be really surprised to see Rask not play for the Bruins next year ? Pending free agents include Jacob Markstrom, Robin Lehner, Braden Holtby, Anton Khudobin, Thomas Greiss, Corey Crawford, Cam Talbot, Mike Smith, Brian Elliott, Jimmy Howard, Ryan Miller, Craig Anderson and backups Laurent Brossoit and Aaron Dell. Then there are the goaltenders on the trade markets, including pending RFA with arbitration rights Matt Murray, Marc-Andre Fleury, Frederik Andersen, Henrik Lundqvist, Antti Raanta and one of Columbus’ two studs in Joonas Korpisalo or Elvis Merzlikins.
  7. rumour is Laine is on the block they want to shore up D.. Hamilton, Dzingle and a draft pick ?
  8. But.. arnt we a Bunch of jerks ?
  9. Not a huge Anderson fan but to be fair he wasnt exactly playing under Canes quality defense.
  10. I wonder if the Capitals feel good about all the money they saved not giving Trotz a raise ?
  11. What is it that this will accomplish?
  12. I just worry about giving Hamilton a really long term deal. Yes he had a great year. But has also had not so great to be let go from 2 other teams. I cant see a big raise with the flat cap. But would he, like a lot of players likely take a 1 or 2 year deal to make more when cap goes up? Would it be great to keep him, yes. But also have to think of the other players coming up for resigning. I would rather have 3 or 4 good to really good players than 1 superstar and 3 4th liners
  13. I cant see Vancouver not resigning Markstrom, but Demko may be available if they do ?
  14. Dubas has said he would be open to trading the 1st rounder they just got 15th, for a player that could help their team. I would guess a D-man. How do yall feel about 2 first round picks?
  15. Rumors this morning are Kapanen to the Pens.
