There's a blast from the past.

Not unlike the good 'ol Hartford Whalers.

"Breakfast schmreakfast! Look at the score for God's sake! It's only the middle of the second and I'm winning 12-2! Breakfasts come and go Renee. But Hartford? The Whale? They beat Vancouver once, maybe twice in a lifetime."

As much as I'd like another Canadian team, I can't help thinking of Wayne in all of this...he must be sad.

Why, because he'd be leaving sunny Arizona? If that was the only thing I'd be sad as well. But he has other things to consider.

First, were he to return to his home region as coach he'd be the team's number one attraction.

Also, Balsillie reportedly offered Gretzky a 10-15 per cent stake in the team should it relocate to southern Ontarion. He also said that any new arena would bear his father's name.

He's not an idiot. Why stay in Phoenix losing millions of dollars when you can go to a more revenue-friendly city?

Good points. I wonder if he really will consider this? Somehow, I'm doubting the possibility, with the pressures you mention, plus family considerations.

Habs/Nordiques rivalry was killer, made Sox/Yanks look like a tea party.

I'm not sure Gretzky would be keen on moving to Hamilton though, he has something very rare in Arizona - relative anonymity. Can you imagine how crazy his life would be if he moved to Hamilton? He clearly did not like the spotlight on him during the Olympics...

PITTSBURGH - Police say they've traced an Internet death threat made against Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin to a 17-year-old boy.

Pittsburgh police say the boy lives in Chambersburg, which is east-southeast of Pittsburgh. State police have talked to the boy, but no charges were immediately filed.

The boy's name wasn't released because he's a juvenile.

The posting on a hockey message board read: "I'm killing Ovechkin. I'll go to jail. I don't care anymore."

The Capitals and Penguins play Game 4 in Pittsburgh on Friday night. The series continues in Washington with Game 5 on Saturday night.

I haven't been following the Bruins series at all...even though there's a great local player on the team.

Crosby was awesome last night for the Pens...he's impressing me.

Probably feeling bad for that Knee on Knee on Gonchar That was not very clean...

I agree with you on Crosby though, as much as he is a giant douche allegedly you can't deny his talent as a hockey player...

Good to see the Bruins waking up finally, I wonder if it's too late though...

Hell yes. That was a show tonight on the West Side of Chicago. PK with the hat trick. A beautiful thing. Hard to believe the Blackhawks are in the final four of the Stanley Cup playoffs. I'm not used to the feeling. Can't wait for the next series to get goin. Bring that shit on...Red Wings or Ducks, it don't matter.

Well, I was really hoping Vancouver would come out of the west. But since the Hawks won, now I'm hoping it's the Hawks.

Nice win for the Caps in a sloppy game...hoping for a B's win tonight and a couple of epic game 7's ending in home team wins.

Well, part of me is sad for my former neighbour, Luongo, but part of me is also happy that the answer to, "What Canadian team was the last to win the Stanley Cup?", remains the same.
