I'm not right often, so I will gladly quote myself with pride. Looks like the Niedermayer brothers will be playing together for the next 4 years.

Now that the major name skaters have been claimed, the only interesting (and slightly unpredictable) acquisitions left are the restricted and free-agent goaltenders. Of the teams who might possibly be toying with the idea of a change... these are my (poor) speculations for the moment:

Los Angeles: Chris Osgood

Chicago: Sean Burke (Phoenix looks as if they will go with Boucher, and even though the Blackhawks have been cited in the Khabibulin race... money and unstable management will probably eliminate them from signing contention)

St. Louis: Felix Potvin (affordable AND inconsistent)

Pittsburgh: Curtis Joseph (a personal pipe-dream for me, and a possibililty if management deems Fleury as a yet unproven commodity)

Tampa Bay: Most likely will stand with John Grahame and Jamie Storr... Khabibulin is a bit of a salary hog, but there's a chance he will stay with the Lightning.

Carolina: Roman Cechmanek (the team is already brutal... why not strive for comedically tragic)

Detroit: Nikolai Khabibulin (and they still won't win)



Wild Card teams who may look to change their netminding state:

Colorado, Boston, Edmonton, and Philadelphia.

No way the Blues sign Potvin, they have Lalime and a bunch of good young goalies behind him.

Thought you might like that one.



I was being facetious with most of my predictions.

I have friends who are hardcore Blues fans...they're all from Columbia, but follow the Lou for everything sports-related. I'm so sorry to hear that Pronger has jumped ship.

Anyone know what's going on with Paul Kariya?

I heard a rumour that the Oilers are seriously looking at signing him. I'm very skeptical of this though.

I think the Oilers are pre-occupied with following up on their restricted free-agents, like Ryan Smyth. Kariya is a small possibility, but I don't think he will concede to a similar salary as he had in Colorado. If playing for a Canadian team is enough motivation for him to take another pay cut (and he doesn't mind playing without Teemu), then Edmonton and maybe Vancouver could be destinations.

The trend of brothers migrating to play on the same team might also be a factor.

But shhhh... Crosby is on Leno.

Um, why did Montreal use their draft pick to choose a goalie??

What about Theodore?!

Bobby Holik signed with Atlanta. In his honour, I thought we would reflect upon his progression from on-screen beau to hockey pro.

Courtesy- The Blue Shits.

Yeah... that was mean. It's ok though. It's Bobby.
