Leafs Hysteria

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

...But what happens if you dispense with all the hysteria and hype surrounding both stories and apply the realities of today’s NHL — with its salary cap and entry-draft regulations — to Sundin and Tavares?

Are there any practical applications to be found that might actually advance the Leafs’ cause, now or in the near future? Or is it really all pie-in-the-sky?

For starters, consider the Sundin story, which gathered momentum after Toronto radio host (and former Leaf assistant general manager Bill Watters) suggested that the time was right to trade the team’s all-time scoring leader.

Another GM Candidate For The Leafs

from Scott Morrison at CBC,

...But what about Jimmy Rutherford?

OK, he has a job as general manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, who won the Stanley Cup a couple of seasons ago. But in the world of high finance anything is possible. Money talks and the Leafs have plenty of it.

Rutherford would be a perfect fit in Toronto. He played in Toronto and understands how dreadful the teams have been and how horrible the drought has become.

RBK Jerseys Here to Stay

Stephen Harris at the Boston Herald was the originator of some controversy yesterday when he noted:

According to sources in the B’s dressing room, Reebok has been unable to correct problems with the new jerseys introduced this season across the NHL and will replace them at the company’s expense with new uniforms made of the old materials.

This morning, Harris reports differently:

NHL senior vice president for communications Bernadette Mansur called about what she said were inaccuracies in a note here yesterday about the troublesome new Reebok jerseys.

Mansur said there will not be an across-the-board, leaguewide replacement of the shirts, which many players say tend to hold sweat inside, leading to drenched gloves. She said there are many players who have no problem with the new apparel, while those who want the replacements will get them.

Further, she said, the new shirts will not be made from the same material as in years past. They will have a new-performance fabric on their front half, with the back unchanged.

“Iggy’s” Fast Start

from the Calgary Sun,

...Heading into tonight’s contest against the Colorado Avalanche with six goals and 16 points in 10 games—his best career start to a season—Iginla is the toast of the town.

“You’re trying to improve at the start of the year, knowing from you heckling me that it’s not always happened,” he said yesterday with a laugh. “So you try to improve and do things differently.”

It’s something of a misnomer that Iginla is known as a slow starter. He’s collected at least seven points to start each of the last seven seasons, and reached double digits four times in that spell.
