Top Prospects & Binghamton Senators / Kleinendorst Resigns
« on: May 08, 2012, 12:31:04 PM »
And I mean "resigns" as in "quits".  Heard the news this morning with little else other than the fact that he has handed in his resignation. 

Possibly a job offer?  Don't think he speaks French, so it likely isn't to Montreal.

Thoughts?  I think this is a big loss for the organization.

Sens Talk / MacLean Nominated for the Jack Adams Trophy

Hitchcock and Tortorella are his co-nominees.

General Hockey Discussions / Second Round Around the League
« on: April 29, 2012, 02:37:05 PM »
So...who's still watching?  I know that I am but not as closely as the first.

Did have the Rangers/Capitals game on yesterday and found it deadly dull.  There were 32 shots in TOTAL between the two teams!!  18-14 in favour of the Capitals.  Holtby's save percentage ended up at 786% letting in three goals on 14 Ranger shots!!  Poor guy....likely fell asleep back in his end!  Of course, the Rangers played their shot-blocking, clogging up the neutral zone style that was so effective against the Sens.  No real histrionics in terms of calls/non-calls.  Torts even looked fairly calm behind the bench.  Ho-hummm.

Have to say I was impressed with the LA game particularly with how low Quick can bend down to keep track of the puck when it's in front of his net with tons of traffic in front!  Good gawd!  The guy looked like he was lying on his stomach!!! was their win in game 1 against the Blues.  I think I'll cheer on the Kings for the hell of it!  After all, they are the main underdogs left playing!!   :nod:

General Hockey Discussions / First Round Around the League
« on: April 15, 2012, 01:08:49 PM »
I am assuming that most of us are watching the other first round series.  Just a few comments to get this thread going:

Have to say, I am happy that the LA Kings have started out so strong in the 'other' 1st versus 8th series.  While I think Luongo has played well, the rest of the Canucks have not played up to par IMHO and are certainly missing their "other" Sedin.  They've really put themselves in tough losing their first two games at home and it will be interesting to see if Schneider gets the call to start in nets in game 3.   :smily677:

That is a very low scoring series so far for Boston and the Caps and considering that the Capitals have a third-string, nobody-knows goalie in nets, kudos to that kid, Holtby, for a stellar couple of games so far.  Personally thrilled that Chris Kelly got the only goal in the double OT 1-0 in game 1.  He also got an assist in yesterday's game that Capitals won in double OT.  If these two teams keep this kind of pace up, it could be an extremely long series.

I am not a fan of either Pittsburgh or Philadelphia so, frankly, I don't care who wins it but only that the teams wear themselves out for whoever the winner has to play next.  I'm sure the Pens and their fans are a bit shellshocked with Philly pulling off both wins in the opening two games.  Especially game 1 where the Pens held a 3-0 lead at the end of one period.  It will be INSANITY today in Philadelphia...their fans will be going NUTS, likely even through the pregame warm-up! 

The Phoenix-Chicago series is a fun one to watch!  Smith in goal for Phoenix has impressed me lots (and the Chicago player who hit him behind his net last night has a hearing today as well with the NHL).  It's a hard-hitting series, end to end and I've enjoyed the first two games!

I haven't watched too much of the other series but it sure does seem like a good bunch of series going on in this first round!

General Hockey Discussions / Wade Belak Found Dead Today
« on: August 31, 2011, 06:48:32 PM »
Not a lot of detail yet but Wade Belak was found dead today in his apartment.


Bad things happen in threes.  Will these now stop at three NHL enforcers found dead in their apartments?

Very sad.

General Hockey Discussions / Brian Kilrea Completes His Retirement
« on: August 17, 2011, 01:45:47 PM »
Once I got over my initial 'panic' that the sports pages of the Citizen led off with his obituary, I read that Brian Kilrea has announced that he is stepping down from his General Manager duties with the Ottawa 67's and turning over the dual-duties of Coach and GM to his successor behind the bench, Chris Byrne.  While Brian admits that if Coach Byrne wants him to take a look at a prospect or discuss anything with him he will make himself available but other than that, he will be retiring his final position after a long, illustrious and Hockey Hall of Fame career with the 67's! 

Few in this city will soon forget what Brian has done over the past three and a half decades of dedication to the team.  He has been a father figure to soooo many young men over these years and those he likely helped the most never even made it to the professional leagues.  He always had a way (sometimes very loudly!) with the kids and he left an indelible mark on many of their lives.

Having worked with Brian when he and I were hired back in the 70's, I count him as a dear friend and a all-round wonderful human being!  He never forgets anyone he has met along the way and considers himself just "one of the guys" in whatever room he's in.  I know that he will be missed from the positions that he held all these many years, but there is no doubt in my mind that hockey will take up lots of his time in his "retirement" years!  Best wishes to both Brian and Judy as he enters his well-deserved retirement years!!

Cheers, Brian!  And THANK YOU!!!   :icon_bowdown2:

General Hockey Discussions / Chara Signs 7-Year Extension with Bruins
« on: October 09, 2010, 06:27:41 PM »
Chara has signed a contract today keeping him in Boston until his 40th year!  It's in the $49M range, moneywise.

Knowing him and what a 'machine' he is physically, he will sign a 10 year extension somewhere down the line, keeping him a Bruin until he's 50!! ;)

General Hockey Discussions / 2010-2011 Training Camps
« on: September 17, 2010, 12:28:26 PM »
Since there is always news coming out from the other 29 teams at this time of year, thought I would start a thread to cover what is reported for the rest of the NHL.

In the past couple of days, I have heard:

Jordan Staal will miss the first 4-6 weeks of the season with an infection in his foot where the tendon was severed during the Eastern Final last playoggs.  Ouch!  That's taking quite a while to completely heal!  And if I am not mistaken, the games he will miss are his first regular schedule games missed in his career.

Peter Schaeffer and Brendan Morrison have been given PTOs with the Canucks.  Wonder how they will do?

It's been reported that Gionta will become the 28th captain of the Montreal Canadiens.

Sens Talk / "It's A Whole New Season" - 2010 Training Camp
« on: September 15, 2010, 08:39:16 PM »
Tomorrow is the team's golf tournament (although the forecast does call for rain all day) and the next day they are back at it with physicals, etc.!!  And this is one HAPPY fan to see that the new season is almost upon us!!

Heard on the radio today that Zack Smith has asked for #15 for this year.  Brave soul!!

And kudos to the people behind the new banner!!  Really gets me in the spirit!!


Sens Talk / Campoli Re-Signed

One year, $1.4M contract signed this afternoon.

Top Prospects & Binghamton Senators / Bingo Sens Headed for Europe
« on: July 30, 2010, 09:35:59 AM »
Read in the Citizen today that Tomas Kudelka will not be in Bingo this year as he is headed to the KHL.  The article also stated that Josh Hennessy and Martin St. Pierre have also signed contracts overseas during this summer and that ( :icon_hiding2: don't shoot the messenger CM!!) that Denis Hamel is looking for a team to sign up with as well!

General Hockey Discussions / Bob Probert Dead at 45 years of age
« on: July 05, 2010, 05:10:23 PM »
Windsor media is reporting that Probert, who collapsed on a boat today and had no vital signs when medical crews got to him, has died in a Windsor hospital this afternoon.  This is not confirmed at this point.

General Hockey Discussions / Norris Trophy Nominees
« on: April 25, 2010, 09:05:42 AM »
Duncan Keith, Mike Green and Drew Doughty.

Simply put....GO DOUGHTY GO!!!!!!!!!

It's been a long time since Lidstrom's name was not on that list.  I'm not saying it should be.  Although I'm not impressed that Green's is.  Sure....he's a great "offensive" defenceman but, for me, the skill sets defensively should be more prominent than the offensive side.  I haven't been impressed the past couple of years with Green's defensive abilities. 

The Sens are in the process of signing Wiercioch (sp?) today to his entry level contract and Lehner is in town.  Murray apparently told him he could stay in Ottawa and "take in the end of the season/playoffs" and he said he "preferred to go to Bingo and keep playing!"  Yep!  Gotta love that!   :thumbsup:

Also reported that Cowen should be in town soon as well (his team is currently down 3-1 in their playoffs).

Thought I would just start this thread to mention that Anton Volchenkov will not play in today's game against the Bruins.  Picard will draw back in.  It is expected with Zach Smith (thanks Zach for your help!) returned to Binghamton that Jason Spezza will also play today.

Not only are the Bruins likely wanted to seek revenge for their loss to us less than a week ago, last Monday, but they have since lost to Columbus.  Should be a good game today....hopefully!

Just heard on the Team that Jean Beliveau suffered a 'serious' stroke last night in Montreal and was admitted to hospital.  More details are to follow.

I will keep him in my prayers.  He was one heckuva hockey player and leader.  Always the gentleman too. 

General Hockey Discussions / Geroges Laracque is Angry
« on: January 21, 2010, 10:56:01 AM »
TSN is reporting that the Montreal Canadiens have let Georges Laracque know before practice this morning that he will not be playing again this season and they will be buying him out at the end of the season.  According to the reports, Laracque said he would not "sugarcoat" anything and stated that "Martin does not like my style of play" and that it was "classless of the organization to do this right now with all that is going on in Haiti".
