Retirements

So what happens after you win a Stanley Cup? If your the Detriot Redwings you give your head coach Mike Babcock a 3 year contact and well deserved. You also have Chris Chelios dropping the Stanley Cup and denting it at one of his own resturants. Chelios at age 450 wants to come back for another year along with Darren McCarty, and former Bruin Brad Staurt who becomes a UFA. However you wont have Dallas Drake or Dominik Hasek back, who are both heading to retirement. Hasek's departure will make way for Jimmy Howard who played his college hockey at UMaine and dominated up in Oreno. Hasek will retire with 6 Vezina's, 2 William Jenings, 2 Lester B Pearson's, 2 Hart's, and two Stanley Cups. Hasek is a shoe-in for the HOF.

Trevor Linden the long time Canuck will retire after 19 seasons, playing 16 of them with Vancouver. Linden was the long time captian and wore the C when they last made their Stanley Cup run to the finals, losing to Mark Messier and the New York Rangers.

It is offical Ron Wilson takes over in Toronto, good luck with that Ron.

Marc Crawford is out in LA, after being tied for the worst record in the NHL this past season.

A few minor deals were made Marc-Andre Bergeron got dealt to the Wild from the Ducks for a 3rd round pick.

The Averlanche pick up Marty Serkch from the Stars. Serkch played for Dallas' AHL team Iowa and had 27 goals and 25 assists. The former Hobey Baker winner with Collorado College in 04-05 lead the country in scoring with 64 points. The Stars get a future pick in 09.

Vancouver is looking to deal the 10th overall pick. Also Marcus Nasland could retire.

i can think of a few players who i would dump before him...

andrew alberts, mark stuart (yes, he sucks)

ference can be good...we need to pair him correctly. let's resign hal gill so he and chara can just lie-down across the blueline.

(just kidding, "hal" is short for "pylon")

All we need is a good goal scorer to make this team go!! not even a BIG name some one for the 1st or 2nd line. we have a good base!! just make it better. Some time you have to go with what you have and make it better, this is that year!!!! goodby from Michigan!

lucic-savard-hossa if we can get him, then sturm bergeron and kobasew , not a bad top six with the 3rd line with schaeffer krecji and kessel. If boston can make it to round 2 of the playoffs ill be happy this coming up season.

Does anyone know what channel the draft is going to be on? I'm hoping that it's on versus (like last year) but I wouldn't be surprised if it was on the NHL network

The B's should go after a guy like Daymond Langkow. I know he's getting older, but a 2 year deal could work, and he adds a bit more speed and scoring, and isn't a huge name.
