Colorado Shoots For Forsberg and Naslund

from the Denver Post,

The Swedish NHL stars have said in two publications they want to play together this coming season, and travel plans have been explored to bring Forsberg and Naslund to Colorado within a 24-hour window of each other. Some of Forsberg's closest friends say he doesn't want to leave the Avalanche, and fans who want him to stay have been heartened in recent days by his image being displayed prominently at the top of Avalanche's website. This could be harbinger of things to come or mere coincidence.

The Gun Goes Off

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

At noon ET Monday, an imaginary starter's gun sounded and the National Hockey League's general managers donned blindfolds and began their journey across the foreign terrain of the free-agent playing field. Some will sprint from the starting blocks. Others will move tentatively. Some will stumble or fall. Some will step in something unpleasant along the way. The luckiest or smartest, or some combination of both, will complete this journey having built a playoff contender or even a Stanley Cup champion. The one common theme is that none of these individuals has any clue as to what is going to happen going forward. None.

Not the Same Wings

from the Gaylord Herald Times

, The Red Wings will be back but not in the same form as you remember them. Darren McCarty, one of the most popular Wings, was let go - a casualty of the National Hockey League's new collective bargaining agreement that will allow for a more even playing field for all league clubs. Derian Hatcher was waived. So was Ray Whitney. Coach Dave Lewis was relieved of his duties and replaced by Anaheim's Mike Babcock. It is to be seen if Chris Chelios, Pavel Datsyuk and even the immortal Steve Yzerman will return to the 2005-2006 team. The team will also likely shop for a new goaltender. This will not be your father's Red Wings team nor will it be your father's NHL.

Game Changing

from Terry Frei of the Denver Post,

The question has come up often since the NHL unveiled its post-lockout package of new rules designed to make the game something other than a crawl through T-REX at rush hour. Overnight, did the highly physical, stay-at-home, punish-the-superstars defenseman become less of a prized commodity? More to the point in Denver, did it all help make Avalanche defenseman Adam Foote's departure in the upcoming unrestricted free agency period at least an acceptable option for Colorado general manager Pierre Lacroix? It's starting to look as if the Avs are thinking that way, as the open market for unrestricted free agents begins this morning.

Time to Walk the Walk

from the Daily Herald,

The Blackhawks have promised over and over to be active when the NHL’s free-agent signing period begins today at 11 a.m. We’ve heard that one before, haven’t we? But that was then. This is general manager Dale Tallon’s chance to show that things are indeed going to be different, that there’s a new progressive front-office philosophy that is all about winning the Stanley Cup and not simply competing for a playoff spot.
