    NHL discussion

    Since the deadline is upon us suppose we can take talk out of the Sb and into the forum. Two big trades so far are Hal Gill to the Preds and Antoine Vermette to the Yotes. The Flyers added some blueline help in journeyman Niklas Grossman and the puck moving Pavel Kubina. The Sharks added the gritty Dominic Moore from TB. Lastly the Red Wings reacquired Kyle Quincey in a flip deal with TB with TB sending Donnie to the Ave for Quincey then flipping Quincey for a first round pick.

    Looking ahead, do the Senators, Panthers or Wild make a move? Does Nash leave Columbus? Will Dean Lombardi get SOMEONE who can score?

    THANK YOU BASED GOD FOR A HOCKEY THREAD!

    I'm still on the fence about whether Nash will leave Columbus. Too bad the rumors about Teemu Selanne (one of my top five favorites of all-time) being traded were just rumors. I would LOVE to see him with a good team and make another decent run for the Stan Lee Cup.



    I just don't see this happening again anytime soon.

    Also, Coyotes climbing the rankings with it's nothing? And, to think the NHL wanted to move them out of Arizona.

    I'm not that hyped for the trade deadline drama this year. I don't have much faith in the Flyers making any sort of playoff run so my enthusiasm is a bit muted. For the life of me, I do not understand why this team cannot draft, develop, sign, trade for, or build a decent goaltender. Bryz does not have the makeup to play in Philly.

    NHL wants out of Glendale because of the lease and poor attendance. Not the on-ice results.

    So I went to my first Jets game on Thursday and I've been to a number of sporting events and holy **** that crowd is insane...this city is nuts for the Jets.

    It's amazing watching Stamkos play, he's not the biggest guy out there but he plays like he is, every time he touches the puck you just expect him to score, I was really amazed.

    The devils vastly overpaid for disgruntled Dean Marek Zidlicky. Giving up three Lemaire players and two picks for the Czech. The Rangers cleared some cap space today trading Wolski and his 3.8m contract to the Panthers for AHL journeyman Mike Vernace

    Everytime I go to Jobing, it's always packed. Especially when Boston, Vancouver, Chicago and Detroit are here. Even though it's probably sold out anywhere those teams go.

    Columbus reportedly declines a favorable offer from Nashville choosing to want Nash out of the division if not the conference.

    Final minute. Don't think Rick Nash will end up being traded.

    Re: NHL discussion

    From TSN.ca:

    No one is suggesting the NHL is considering relocating an existing franchise to Saskatoon.

    But it is fair to say there have been expressions of interest from parties in the prairie city to purchase, relocate and house an NHL franchise in Saskatoon's Credit Union Centre.

    Obviously, if the NHL is faced with relocating another franchise -- those options may have to be legitimately explored in the coming weeks or months with regards to the long-term future of the Phoenix Coyotes -- the most logical landing-spot candidates are Seattle, Quebec City, Kansas City and perhaps Las Vegas.

    But interested parties in Saskatoon have contacted the league and suggested there are individuals or parties in Saskatoon who would be willing to ante up the required purchase fee while various levels of government in Saskatchewan would make necessary arrangements to expand and make NHL-suitable the 15,800-seat Credit Union Centre.

    Even though Saskatoon's actual population is around 250,000 -- which at face value would seem to be far too small to support an NHL franchise -- the Saskatoon interests are pitching that an NHL franchise there would be supported by the entire province and it would be a viable operation.
    In 1983, the St. Louis Blues almost moved to Saskatoon. Then-owner Ralston Purina were going to sell the franchise to Bill Hunter, who was going to relocate it to Saskatoon. The league blocked the move, took the franchise over when Ralston Purina effectively abandoned it and sold it to Harry Ornest, who kept the team alive in St. Louis.

    Meanwhile, the NHL continues to focus on negotiations with three groups who have expressed varying degrees of interest in buying the Coyotes from the NHL and working out a deal with the City of Glendale to keep the franchise there long-term. But if those negotiations don't progress in the coming weeks, it's believed the NHL willl have no other option but to begin pursuing a parallel track to look at its relocation options while still trying to make the Phoenix scenario work.

    Either way, one would assume by the end of the NHL regular season -- in mid-April -- the league will need to know whether it's staying in Phoenix for another year or relocating the franchise. Conventional wisdom is the league can't wait as long as it did last spring when Atlanta was relocated to Winnipeg in a process that started in late April and was consummated in late May. Ownership group True North in Winnipeg had an existing infrastructure in place that permitted a relatively smooth transition at such a late date.

    But as interested as parties may now be in Seattle and Quebec, for example, none are as fully developed or operationally sound as True North was.
    In the meantime, the short-term focus of the league is entirely on trying to nail down a completed agreement to purchase in Phoenix.
    I live in this province and I can't see this as remotely viable. Even as a concept its moderately ridiculous.

    Re: NHL discussion

    I don't know my cousins/their friends travel all the time to see games in Edmonton/Calgary/Winnipeg, you just have to look at the Roughriders to see how successful the province can be when they get behind something.

    I do think it's a little crazy and should by no means by the forerunner but is it possible/feasible...I think yes.
