Wow, Since when is D'ags on the Devils ? I've missed a shift, sorry. Waivers?

Loktionov is still producing, nice for NJD. LA are funny.

It was an embarrassment I guess (although it should be obvious at this point that no pro gives two ****s about their hometown team, as much as Habs and Leafs fans like to fantasize otherwise), but I was thrilled we didn't sign Briere. He's pretty much everything this board can't stop complaining about.

They traded a bag of pucks for him.

Briere's hometown team is Ottawa more than Montreal.

Isles re-signed Visnovsky to a 2 year/4.75 M per deal.

CBJ is suddenly a scoring machine. Up 5-3 after 2 in CGY. Can Mason please hold on in regulation?

We shouldve traded Souray the same year we traded Rivet. We would be a machine of hockey right now.

CBJ is underated IMO. They have a good spread-out offense and a good top 4. Now they also have a good Goalie!

Gainey should of realized that he never could afford to give Souray the kind of money he would be offered by other team in the league. Thank god MB doesn't mind undergoing contract negotiations before it's too late.

Moog with the Habs is one of these "Dude! What Are You Doing In That Jersey?" threads favourite.

The old guy gave us a great season too.

I heard he was the ***** as a goalie coach though.

Columbus deserves a playoff shot, they're definitely doing pretty good despite being totally avid of any offensive talent.

Any offensive talent ? They have 0 elite or even 1st line player, but they have a whole lot of good players. I'd see this team (In a 82 games season) having 7-8 18-20 goals scorers, which is really good. They also have four very good Dman and some good young kids.
Cam Atkinson will be something IMO, and Calvert too.

Grats to Jagr. 12th to get to 1000 assists.

They have guys that can score sure. But talent no... When your team's pts leader is 38yrs old Vinny Prospal with 18pts in 34games, that's pretty untalented.

R.J. Umberger finally becomes an ally for us...for a night at least. ENG seals it.

CGY pick 34th overall.

Well, Anisimov, Atkinson, Brassard, Foligno, Umberger and Johansen all have talent.

The future is bright for them. With Keka at the top, they will be a good team in a year or two. Keep in mind that Murray is not even on the team and they already look like a near contending team on Defense. Even brighter when you look at guys like Moore, Holden, Savard, Reilly, Madaisky and Goloubef. They have some great D.
Oh and they're pretty much set for years with Dansk, Mason and Bobber.

Also the point totals don't really count for the first 5 games, they we're abyssimal

Up there with Doug Gilmour, so weird to see. That was a fun season and he did a great job, retired early and sort of inadvertently messed up the Thibault development plan.

Remember the Zarley Zalapski left wing, Vladimir Malakhov left d shut down of Jagr plan that worked in the first round? I still respect AV big time to this day for that. Too bad there was no answer for Hasek in the 2nd round.

That sucked too as he was/is one of my favourite players ever, that was so close to happening too! Although his presence would've essentially been polishing a turd but you never know.

I think it was Turner Stevenson and Malakhov that were given the job to shut down Jagr. Not only did they shut him down but punsihed him with some big body checks.

Nope, Zarley Zalapski moved up to left wing pretty much everytime Jagr was on the ice while Malakhov played left d neutralizing Jagr's attacking side. There would be 3 d on the ice for Jagr and that's how the Habs shut him down and won the series. I'm sure Stevenson helped but he was a right winger and covering the opposite side of where Jagr likes to do his thing.

You might be right I just remember the last game Stevenson clocked Jagr good and it looked like Jagr was almost crying on the bench from the beatings he took in the series. Malakhov could really play Norris level hockey when he wanted too and handled Jagr well.
