Finding The Solution Is Key For Rangers

from the Journal News,

"It's interesting; at what point in time do we stand up and say, we need this, we've got to fix this, change this?" Rangers coach Tom Renney said. "We know what we want, we know what we need. We also know we're not going to give up young people to do anything at all. We also know some of those solutions we don't have here this year are coming." "I don't know if we're a Stanley Cup contender right now but I think we can continue to surprise a lot of people by what we do these next 20 games and the playoffs," Renney said.

What About It, NHL

TSN will be televising the Trade Centre Show beginning Thursday at 8:00am ET. Wouldn't it be great if the NHL could somehow stream that show or get it on Center Ice allowing hockey fans in the U.S. to catch deadline fever? Maybe they have it planned and if so, great, if not, it's not too late to do so.

Flyers center and leading scorer Peter Forsberg visited with a foot specialist in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday.

The following is a conversation about the visit with Flyers Athletic Trainer and Strength and Conditioning Coach, Jim McCrossin, who accompanied Forsberg to Charlotte.

McCabe Hopes To Stay In Toronto

from the CP via TSN,

''I would expect to, yeah, I would hope so,'' McCabe answered when asked if he thought he'd survive the trade deadline. ''I love it here, I want to be here,'' he later added. ''That's something you can't worry about. The trade deadline comes and goes every year. You can't lose any sleep over it.'' The Leafs have made an offer to McCabe which was rejected. ''Have you ever heard of a negotiation where you take their first offer? I don't think so,'' McCabe said after his team's pre-game skate at Air Canada Centre. ''It'll play out, I'm not too concerned. You guys keep bringing it up. We've got all summer, all the time in the world. It's no big deal.''

Beware Of Anonymous Bloggers

from the Philadelphia Flyers,

In Philadelphia it occurs just as often as Christmas, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day and the Fourth of July. While the local and national media, along with silly, anonymous bloggers with absolutely zero credibility pontificate what may happen before the NHL’s March 9 trading deadline, the rumors have little effect inside the locker room as the Flyers prepare for the final 20 games of the regular season. “I’ve never, in 15 years, had someone say to me that so-and-so is going to get traded for so-and-so and had it ever actually come true,” said Derian Hatcher.

Everyone Relax

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

For everyone waiting for the other shoe to drop at the 2006 National Hockey League trading deadline, relax, it will. It just may take right up until Thursday morning before the action starts to heat up. Apart from the early deadline (14 days sooner than in 2004) and the implications of the salary cap (real, even if others may dispute the notion), one of the difficulties in making those complex, trading-deadline deals is that no one, among the NHL's 30 general managers, is entirely certain of the marketplace anymore.

Rumors Galore- But No Movement Yet

As many of you are probably aware, many trade rumors are floating around. The funniest one is Chelios to Montreal and someone started a rumor yesterday that McCabe may or may not have been traded. Remember, I will only post credible rumors and I am sure they will start picking up in the next 24 hours. On another subject, this is good news for the military serving overseas via the CP.

Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan are getting their wish — Tim Hortons will be serving double-doubles and doughnuts soon enough. After weeks of lobbying by the military, the chain agreed to set up a coffee shop to serve soldiers in Kandahar, said Ron Joyce, who co-founded the famous chain in Hamilton in 1964 with NHL hockey player Tim Horton.

Svatos Getting More Tests On Shoulder

from the Denver Post,

One day after saying the condition of its leading goal scorer had improved, the Avalanche this morning sent right wing Marek Svatos back to Denver for further tests on his ailing right shoulder. "We feel he's made some progress the last two days, but want to make sure by having him seen (in Denver)," Quenneville said, prior to tonight's game in St. Louis.
