    Please just repost it, because that thread is older than this one and all of the posts will go out of order...

    And Jammer, shouldn't we get some posts going on the return of Red Light? lol

    You can't hurt me Roscoe. I'm in my happy place.:gun1:

    Red Light was but a small grain of sand in the overall beach that has been Montreal Canadiens' Hall of Fame goaltenders.

    I just love that link I posted earlier. It's a hockey player database, and they actually have the gall to put his nickname on his page. I don't think our southern neighbors will be able to appreciate it as much as we do.

    ESPN - Predators fans scramble to keep team in Nashville - NHL

    The way things are going, there's no way they'll sell those tickets. They averaged under 14K in attendance over the past year. Hopefully the team will move to Ontario where they will get the proper fans. I wish they could get teams back to Quebec and Winnipeg. Under the new financial agreement they should be able to thrive.

    Big move from Flyers:
    The Philadelphia Flyers acquired defenseman Kimmo Timonen and forward Scott Hartnell from the Nashville Predators on Monday, improving a team that finished last in the NHL.
    The Predators get a first-round pick -- the same one they sent to the Flyers to acquire Peter Forsberg -- for Timonen and Hartnell, who were to become unrestricted free agents July 1 but are close to signing with Philadelphia. Both players have reportedly agreed to six-year contracts with Philadelphia. Timonen's deal is for $37.8 million and Hartnell's for $25.2 million.

    I wonder what Nashville is trying to do. Looks like they're clearing cap space.

    I remember hearing on the radio that Nashville had 3 free agents to sign. The two traded guys and Paul Kariya.

    You can't re-sign everyone.

    The Preds are also on the verge of being moved to Canada, and the front office, during a period of possible ownership transition may not have the green light to spend, spend, spend.

    That's kind of what I've been thinking. At this same time it looks like Preds may drop off performance wise. They're losing some important core guys.

    Wow, 2 big trades involving 2 pretty good goalies. The Sharks had 2 #1 goalies and had to move one of them. The Leafs are afraid of draft picks, so no big surprise they traded some away.

    Holy Crap!

    The NHL free agent period started yesterday with a BANG. Dozens of big name stars have changed teams. Money is being handed over by the truck load.

    Some of the biggest names on the move so far:

    Daniel Briere to Philadelphia
    Chris Drury to the Rangers (Buffalo loses their top 2 centres the first day of FA)
    Scott Gomez to the Rangers
    Paul Kariya to the Blues
    Ryan Smyth to Colorado
    The Pens were active signing Petr Sykora and Darryl Sydor along with 3 others

    Wings World moves:
    Brian Rafalski to the Wings
    Matthieu Schneider and Todd Bertuzzi to the Ducks

    Here is the complete list of signings so far:

    Wings are getting hammered by the cap. They are really limited at what they can do at this point.

    The Oilers sign Sheldon Souray to a 5yr, $27 million contract.

    NHL Hockey News - Oilers strike deal with Souray - sportsnet.ca

    Well, the Oilers should be much better on the PP, but they've taken a HUGE step back in their own end this off season.

    They've replaced Jason Smith -13 +/- last season and Roman Hamrlik +22, with Souray -28 and Pitkanen -25 for a difference of -62.

    The Oilers are terrible.
