  1. No star for midget AAA - half a star for CHL - one star for AHL and two for NHL ? I'm guessing Hall of Fame gets more than NHL and Staff/HWL gets more than Hall of Fame. That's my idea.
  2. http://www.tsn.ca/canadian_hockey/news_sto...y.asp?id=146457 TSN.ca/CP files 12/10/2005 1:05:19 PM Mario Lemieux has pulled out of the Olympics. Lemieux told TSN that he informed Team Canada staff, including Wayne Gretzky, that he has withdrawn his name from consideration for the team. ''I talked to (Wayne Gretzky) a couple days ago and I told him that I would pass on the Olympics,'' said Lemieux. ''With the way I have been playing so far and with the young guys we have coming up in Canada, I think the best thing to do is to go with the young guys, the young legs. With Spezza playing very well and Sid and Staal and all these guys, I think it's time for these guys to step up and they deserve to be on the team.'' Lemieux thinks Sidney Crosby would make a solid a additionn to Team Canada. Related Info ''I think he should be on the team. He is going to be part of Team Canada for the next 15-20 years.'' Lemieux's decision comes after he was admitted to hospital on Wednesday after complaining of an irregular heartbeat. He was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, which can be treated with medication. Lemieux also stated Saturday that he will receive a medical checkup on Monday and hopes to resume workouts in the coming weeks. Pittsburgh general manager Craig Patrick said the condition should not affect Lemieux's life in any way and that the Hall of Famer should be able to return to the Penguins' lineup relatively soon. Patrick said Lemieux can start on the medication immediately and doctors do not expect any ill effects from it. Lemieux has had numerous medical problems since his career began in 1984, including a bout with Hodgkin's disease in 1993 that was partly responsible for him sitting out the 1994-95 season. Lemieux also has been sidelined for long periods with back and hip problems, and he missed two-thirds of the Penguins' 1990-91 Stanley Cup championship season with severe lower back pain. In 21 NHL games this year Lemieux has seven goals, 14 assists and a -17 rating. --------------------- That sucks, oh well I guess it's time for a new generation to pick up where he left off.
  3. About time we see another one of these threads. GO HABS GO!
  4. Ok I just tried in paint, easier said than done.
  5. Count me in. And why bother scanning, make your signature in paint and send the picture over.
  6. Stop reading Eklund's rumours, those are crap.
  7. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=146365&hubname= MONTREAL (CP) - Montreal Canadiens captain Saku Koivu did not skate Friday and is to miss a third straight game with a groin injury. Koivu will not be in the lineup for a game Saturday night against Anaheim at the Bell Centre. ''He's day-to-day,'' said head coach Claude Julien. ''We hope he'll be ready for our next game on Tuesday (against Phoenix).'' Returning to the lineup are defencemen Andrei Markov, who has served a three-game suspension for shoving an official, and Mike Komisarek, who missed three games after the death of his mother from cancer of the pancreas. The Canadiens had a week off since their last game, a 3-2 victory over Los Angeles last Saturday night. Koivu skated this week, but Julien said he did not aggravate the injury. The club called up forward Garth Murray from AHL Hamilton ---------- I wonder if Garth will actually play a shift.
  8. Nice to see the kids is getting better.
  9. Not the first time the Polish Prince heads down to the minors
  10. It was a legal hit, it's part of the game. Sucks for Havlat but that's the risk a hockey player takes every night when he steps on the ice.
  11. You said it yourself, TWO YEARS AGO. That was then and this is now. Seriously, what's the big deal. If Theo was still in contention then he would be a third string. Theo repeatly said it himself that if he were the third string goalie in any international competititon that he would rather train on his own rather than not playing a single game and watch by the sidelines.
  12. Seriously who cares if Theo doesn't make Team Canada. Face the facts, Martin Brodeur is going to be the starting goalie and who ever is going to back him up is most likely going to play two games during the preparatory round.
  13. Weren't both of them denying the comments or something like that?
  14. I'm pretty sure Brian Burke can see right through Bonk and Souray's mediocre play. Not to mention the horrendous stats both of them have. And here's a little insight, Sykora isn't coming to Montreal.
  15. That indeed is a class act.
  16. Zednik a bonafide 1st line guy? Ribeiro and 2nd line center? Wow when did this happen?
  17. Doubt will happen. That's hefty price for Sykora.
  18. My stance has always been the same, Ribeiro and Dagenais are douchebags.
  19. I hear you get an automatic ban on the Leafs forum if you mention how another NHL team is doing better than Toronto [Edited on 2005/12/5 by Tony]
  20. Kovy is already training on his bike and said he should be hitting the ice soon. You never know.
  21. Is it me or did the people on the canadiens.com board copy our game threads? Maybe we copied them
  22. I'm still pissed that Kosty only played one shift in each game. What the hell was that.
  23. Shame on the NHL indeed, falling alseep during hockey blows. Damn you interference.
