Are you in Ottawa? I was there for 8 years before finally breaking free last summer and moving to Toronto

What do you think will happen to Heatley?

sorry or this late response but good game for the pens, as an avs fan i love seeing the wings lose and hope hossa never gets a ring

GREAT save by fleury at the end of the game, i was at a house with a lot of people watching and we all went crazy.

Looks like it's going to be Philadelphia and Boston at Fenway Park in the Winter Classic outdoor game on Jan. 1.

It was originally going to be Montreal at Fenway, but the Habs brass begged off that game because they're reportedly lobbying the NHL to hold a game at the Olympic Stadium against Toronto in late November (the 100th anniversary of their first game is on Dec. 4).

Draft

Prediction
1. NYI: Viktor Hedman
2. TB: Trades down to 7th with TOR for Kaberle and another D (Kubina?), TOR takes John Tavares (this will probably not happen, but Brian Burke has pulled off more ridiculous trades on draft day. If TB still has the pick, they will probably take Tavares and trade Lecavalier for a #1 D-man)
3. COL: Matt Duchene
4. ATL: Evander Kane
5. LA: Oliver Ekman-Larsson
6. PHX: Jared Cowen
7. TOR: Brayden Schenn (If TB is picking here, that throws the whole thing off)
8. DAL: Dmitri Kulikov
9. OTT: Nazem Kadri
10. EDM: Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson

After that, it's a crap shoot.

ETA: God bless Twitter. I've been following Darren Dreger since yesterday and he's putting out trade rumours and news before anyone else (he's roaming around the draft floor talking to GM's). Ducks and Flyers are talking trade for Chris Pronger right now

Dreger reporting the Pronger to Philly trade is a done deal.

Bettman walked on stage to open the proceedings, and was immediately and loudly booed. his reaction was "merci pour la bienvenue"

ETA: Pronger for Lupul, Sbisa, 1st Rd Pick 2009, 1st Rd Pick 2010, and a conditional 3rd Rd Pick in 2010. Flyers gave up a bit too much if you ask me, should have kept next year's 1st round choice.

The Islanders are making interesting moves, and good on them because a strong team on the Island can only be good for hockey.

I wonder what Beav is thinking.

Louis Leblanc. Very happy as I've met him a few times.

I spent most of the past few days thinking he'd pick Duchene, which would be fine long term, but the poor kid was going to get booed when they announced him. Then Garth Snow turned out to be as good as I hoped he was and shocked people by doing the obvious. I'll tell you what - I loved that he kept it quiet as it made the draft real exciting, but man, thinking he was going to pick someone that needs years of development bugged the shit out of me.

I'll also add - long term, say in 5-10 years, I think Duchene would probably be the better pick. But the Isle's need goals, so Tavares was the way to go. If in a few years he turns into a Marion Hossa type - great. You can trade a guy like that and get great return. Any way you cut it, it was the best choice. I know nothing about the guy he tok at 12, but I think he probably could have got him at 16...

Phew.

Way too much. Pronger's 34, and we gave up next year's first rounder for him. I don't care at all about Lupul, but losing Sbisa hurts, too.

That was exactly my thinking...I liked the little we saw of Sbisa and I hate to lose him.

So, in one day we lose Khabibulin and Havlat and sign Hossa. Upgrade? Downgrade? Wash?
