“Rebuilding” Edmonton

from Charlei Teljeur of the Hockey News,

Being within one measly win of another Stanley Cup still isn’t proof enough for the elite players in the league to want to play their hockey in Edmonton? Perhaps an overhaul of the city is in order. What will take to convince the hockey world that the city is big time and should be treated as such? First off, boost that sparse population base. On your best day you still can’t crack a million residents. Find a way to attract more immigrants. Not a couple, a whole mess of them. Make up a rumor about another gold rush. Offer free methadone at clinics.

Either Way- Roberts Going To Toronto

from the Toronto Star,

According to a source, Roberts told Florida Panthers GM Mike Keenan that he is leaving Florida for Toronto — either as a Leaf or to retire. Roberts' threat to retire certainly won't do much for Keenan's bargaining power when it comes to a trade with the Leafs. One thing working in Keenan's favour, however, is that he could allow Roberts to retire and it likely wouldn't have a big effect on his salary cap situation. Should Roberts retire, his entire $2.25 million (all figures U.S.) salary would go against the salary cap.
