I'm pretty sure the reigning Stanley Cup champions have the worst name in the league...

it's pretty sad when "The Ducks" sounds tougher, who is scared of a duck?

I'm curious to know what the Canadiens fans think of Souray going to Edmonton...

I had always thought he was an integral part of the team, yes or no?

Well, he definitely became a leader in the dressing room, so I'm sure that his loss will be felt in that respect.

However, while Souray did score 26 goals this year, he was a minus 28 which means he was a defensive liability. So I don't know how integral he really was. It will be tough replacing his power-play production but I think the Habs will be better off with a defenseman more responsible in his own end.

I just want to see the damn Habs jerseys in new tight-fitting, space age form
















Completely unchanged in design, that is.

Yep, towards the end of last season it seemed the media made a beeline for Souray to get his opinion on the match and his views were always prominently cited in articles.

And for the ladies, his lack of defensive skills, were more than made up by the eye candy he provided

He was tough too and we need more of that on the team. I'll miss him

^ He was also horrible one-on-one.

For the unitiated here's an example of Souray getting beat one-on-one. He got beat quite frequently and more than once by Jason Spezza who twice pulled the same move on Souray.

What's the general opinion in Montreal on his departure?

I usually check out RDS quite a bit but haven't had much time...

Well, I haven't had much time either, but I think people were generally resigned to the fact that he was leaving.

In fact, for the reasons mentioned above, I think it was pretty clear that, Souray's goal production aside, the Habs would be better off without him and I'm sure there are many other Montrealers out there who feel the same.

I wonder what our resident Islanders fans, UberBeaver and MrPryck, think of this. I think it's a wonderful gesture and will be looking forward to watching this game.

Arbour to coach Isles for a game to reach 1,500

CanWest News Service

Al Arbour, who led the New York Islanders to four straight Stanley Cups during the 1980s, will be behind the bench again in November to coach his 1,500th National Hockey League game.

Arbour, 75 on Nov. 1, has accepted an invitation from Isles coach Ted Nolan to run the team for one game to reach the milestone.

The Hall of Famer will sign a one-day contract on Nov. 2 and call the shots the following night, when the Islanders are home to Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

"This is an incredible gesture by Ted and the Islanders,"Arbour said. "I am flattered that Ted thought of me and I wouldn't miss this night for the world. I told the team that I do not want any pregame fanfare. I'm there to coach the game and help Ted and my Islanders try to earn two points against a very tough team."

Arbour is the second all-time winningest coach - behind Scotty Bowman - in NHL history, with 781 wins. His regular-season record with the Islanders is 739-537-223 from 1973 to 1994, the most wins by a coach with one team in NHL history.

"Every day last season, I would walk by that big board outside our locker room that lists the franchise's award winners and milestones," Nolan said. "And every day, it would kill me when I'd see coach Arbour made it to 1,499 games.

"I asked (GM) Garth Snow if we could bring coach back for one more game and to ask the NHL office to recognize it. They did, coach Arbour emphatically said he was on board and now I can't wait."

I think it's great that Arbour is getting a chance to coach the game. He deserves the honor.

I wish Souray was coming to theIslanders. Souray + Bergeron together on power play just raining hate from the blue line would have been something to watch.

So is this possible: Every friggin Leafs game is sold out already? I wanted to get some Leafs/Habs or Leafs/Isles tickets, but according to ticketmaster EVERY FRIGGIN GAME is sold out? Or have they just not gone on sale yet. I'm confused.
