I wouldn't call it number 9 quicker than I'd call it his retirement concusion.
Yeah, but that's what everybody said about #8 :lol
Whether the next one ends his career is anybody's guess... but it seems very likely that he's going to get another concussion, and when he does it's very likely that he'll miss a lot of hockey while he recovers. If we could get him cheap, I'd consider the risk, but I wouldn't want to be in the situation of having a lot invested in him.
I much more prefer the other player suggested in the second Edmonton-based rumour in the article:
"Newlywed beauty Veronica Varekova may be the one who talks hubby, Petr Nedved, out of returning to Edmonton.
Accustomed to Manhattan nightlife, Veronica will view Alberta like the North Pole. Los Angeles is more like it.
I question the strength of their relationship if it can't survive without the Manhattan bar scene.
"I love you honey and I'd go anywhere with you, just as long as I can party with rock stars, actors and actresses, NFL players, NBA players, MLB players, senators, congressman, Bill Clinton, Snoop Dog, the Olsen Twins and Madonna. "
If she's not really that shallow then she's taking a beating from all kinds of media, and I've never seen this storyline attributed to anything stronger than idle speculation.
If Zhamnov could be had for 3-4 million a year, he would have resigned with the Flyers. He is holding out for more money then that. He will probably end up signing for aroung that amount, but if he does, I believe the FLyers will keep him. Gagne scored 10 goals over a 12 game span or something close to that while playing with Zhamnov.
Do you honestly think this is going to happen? I highly doubt any oiler fans will see this as possible. Why would one nhl star join an nhl club with no stars? Of all the places lindros would take a paycut why would he choose edmoton?
Why would anyone go backwards from a big city to country farm land? This is not ever going to happen. Eric to the leafs or another big city.
