Hockey Journal Notes
Interesting notes from today's installment of the New England Hockey Journal radio show on ESPN 890
- Matt Kalman, Kevin Paul Dupont, and Mick Colageo brought up the intriguing words spoken by Marion Hossa after he was traded to Pittsburgh earlier this week. According to them, Hossa had nothing but great things to say about Boston, when asked. He said he would love to be able to play alongside fellow Slovak Zdeno Chara as well as former teammate Marc Savard.
- Dave Molinari from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette called in to discuss the Penguins trade deadline moves and anything else hockey related. He labeled the Pens moves "a go for broke" style that you don't have many chances to do in today's salary cap era. He also made note of Pittsburgh's very "ordinary" defense, which conveniently, is manned by none other than former Boston whipping boy, Hal Gill.
- The words Claude Julien and Jack Adams Award were mentioned in the same sentence and I have no reason to disagree.
- Interesting note: Bill Guerin was the man that the Bruins lost to free agency and with the compensation draft pick, Patrice Bergeron was the man selected in the 2nd round of the 2003 draft.
