seems like a downgrade to me... Hossa is very hot/cold depending on his mood...

I have no idea who the hell the Leafs signed so far - I'm pretty used to it by now though.

It's a wash at worst, an upgrade at best. If the 'Hawks young backup goaltender, Corey Crawford, progresses in his development and can carry more of the workload, then the Khabibulin loss will not be felt.

As for Hossa/Havlat, the one major plus in Hossa's favour is that he's not injury prone like Havlat is, and he'll produce a bit more offence, at least during the regular season.

I read a joke yesterday: A Chicago Starbucks unveiled a new drink in honour of Hossa after the signing announcement. It's served without any cups.

Biggest signing by the Leafs yesterday was former Montreal defenceman Mike Kimisarek to a 5-year, $22.5 million deal.

I'm glad he went to Toronto. It means he will definitely not be coming back to haunt Montreal during the playoffs.

I don't get the joke. Is it because Hossa has no testicles?

The second comment there is quite funny. lol. There was a rumor going 'round that Komi was signing with the Rangers, and man, that would suck. I would probably rather have Komisarek score the game winner in Game 7 o the SC finals against the Isle's than have him play for the Rangers - because Ranger fans suck that much. If they had both Long Island guys...ugh. It'd be awful.

Isles signed Roloston and a bunch of AHL guys. Fellas, I hate to gloat, but, seriously - The.Cup.Is.Ours.*

Roly is a decent goalie (c wut i did thar?) He's pretty consistent and not as injury prone as others so you might be in for a pleasant surprise with him...

Yeah, how great would it have been if Komisarek and Higgins had gone to the Island? I wonder if Snow made any offers to Komi?

Snow made an offer to my left nut for 4 years, $5mill per and it turned him down.

I'd much rather have Higgins than Komi, but it would have been cool to have both. And Scuderi. Oh well.

Elfa - You made a RHYME!!!! HOLY FUCKING SHIT!

This is just so beautiful, so heart-warming, that I have no words.

Leafs got Beauchamp (or however you spell it) ... crap. He was the last guy I was hoping Snow to sign. I guess there's always Tanguay...

Beauchemin... Interesting.

I'm still holding out hope for Koivu.

I couldn't care less for Kovalev. And I'll never know why they didn't go after François Beauchemin.
