Any doubt about the Smith era of drafting over? Bolland and Sindel could be the steals of the draft

I would rather have Brent as the coach

toold schoool for some of the younger playersRetained assistant coach Denis Savard

What the hell got into Nieminen is Calgary!!!!!??????if he played like that with the hawks they would have made the playoffs
February 19, 2004 - Traded center Alexei Zhamnov and a 2004 fourth-round draft pick to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for defenseman Jim Vandermeer, a 2004 second-round draft pick and the rights to center Colin Fraser
Lets face facts--AZ was getting ridden out of town--never should have been made captian and wastes his talent--also--look may--more drafts picks
February 16, 2004 - Traded right wing Steve Sullivan to the Nashville Predators for 2004 and 2005 second-round draft picks.
This trade hurts--I still say they could have gotten a first round draft pick for him from Nashville or Edmonton--tade done because Sullivan was the player rep
November 17 - Acquired defenseman Stephane Robidas and a second-round pick in the 2004 draft from the Dallas Stars for defenseman Jon Klemm and a fourth-round pick in the 2004 draft.

November 5 - Named Bob Pulford general manager.
Named Dale Tallon assistant general manager. Fired director of player evaluation Marshall Johnston, assistant general manager Nick Beverley and director of amateur scouting Bill Lesuk
The more things change-the more they stay the same
What pressure? He's only injury prone because we ride him unmercifully. He makes a few million. For an all-star goalie thats a bargain. I was glad to see Nemo and his stupid penalties leave. Only player I didn't like leaving was Sullivan.
