Christmas Special: Chicago Blackhawks

Team Wishlist: Get back Brian Campbell and his ridicouly large contract. Before I start getting ripped just see his stats. They're freaking amazing. The team has a great everything else. Just an okay defense corps though. So what if they had a beast defense corps as well? Could you imagine how good that'd be?


Christmas Special: Carolina Hurricanes

Team Wishlist: Some leadership and some scoring from Eric Staal. With Marc Staal injured and people blaming his brother, you would have to think Eric is just a little worried for his brother. You would have to think this worry is hindering his play. Also, there hasn't been that veteran leadership from anyone since Rod Brind'Amour was captain. We'll see how the season plays out!

News Update

Breaking News: Terry Murray has been relieved of his duty as LA Kings Head Coach. John Stevens will be replacing him on an interm basis. Sources tell us that it is unlikely he will stay as head coach. There has been speculation that he will be replaced. I have also been told that if he is to be replaced it will be for Daryl Sutter or Randy Carlyle.

Trade: The Anaheim Ducks have traded Kurtis Foster and Timo Pielmeier to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for Rod Pelley, Mark Fraser, and a 7th Round Pick.

Talent Analysis:
Timo Pielmeier: Projected as a back up goalie with unstable potential. Has some flaws. Could be a good back up goalie or a top goalie prospect. Example: Scott Clemmensen or Alex Auld

Mark Fraser: Projected 5,6,7 D-Man. Not many flaws. Could be a third line defenseman or top AHL defenseman.

Rod Pelley: ^ Read above.
