Poti finally has his “D” day

by Dean Belanger
on

In what had become a cruel process, the Oilers have finally traded Tom Poti and Rem Murray to the NYR for Mike York and a 4th round pick in 2002. In an earlier deal, the Oilers also traded Sean Brown to Boston for prospect Bobby Allen. The Oilers have finally addressed their concerns at the center position, but in doing so have really weakened their blue line. Each deal on their own is a fine trade, but when you consider that the Oilers have given up two defencemen off their NHL roster, you have to wonder why the Brown deal was processed…

Sean Brown was originally a draft choice of the Boston Bruins and was traded to Edmonton with Mariusz Czerkawski and a first round pick for Bill Ranford in 1996. Since that time, Brown has been in and out of the line up and struggled with consistency and his confidence. What he has never had a problem with is racking up penalty minutes, and always sticking up for his teammates. In 269 career games with the Oilers, he has amassed 664 PIM. Brown started the year playing with Scott Ferguson and both were a steady pair on the blue line. Once Tom Poti was signed, both Brown and Ferguson were taking turns in the press box and it really affected Brown’s play.

Making his way to Edmonton is promising young D man, Bobby Allen. A second round pick in 1998, Allen is described as an exceptionally mobile defenceman with outstanding defensive skills. The Oilers feel he has a very bright future in the NHL, but will report to Hamilton for the time being.

Tom Poti saw his meteoric rise to stardom halt this season, mostly due to the fa Read more»

The Blades are Playoff Bound

by pbadmin

The Saskatoon are playoff bound for the first time in 2 years. They
will face the division champion Brandon Wheatkings in the first round of the
Eastern conference Playoffs begining Saturday night in Saskatoon. The
Blades will host the first pair of games at home due the Royal Manitoba
Winter Fair. Games three and four will be in Winnipeg, game five in
Saskatoon followed by games six and seven in Manitoba with game six in
Winnipeg and game seven in Brandon.

The series is likely to be a very low scoring series if regular season
head to head games are any indication. In nine meetings during the season
the Wheatkings outscored the Blades 28-19 or just over 5 goals being scored
per contest. The Blades were 3-6 vs Brandon this season including a 2-2-0-0
home road while only going 1-4 in the Keystone Centre. With the first pair
of games slated to take place at Sask Place, the Blades may have a better
opportunity to jump on the Wheatkings and perhaps win a couple if not
atleast split heading to Winnipeg. With the games likely to be very tight
checking and low scoring specialty teams could become a huge factor.

The
Blades were 9 for 53 vs the Wheatkings on the power play this season while
the Wheatkings were 8-45 vs the Blades on the power play. Although through
the course of the season the Wheatkings had a very successfull power play
finishing 4th in the league this season at 21.4 while the Blades opporated
at 18.3 which ranked them only 14th. Brandon also owns the leagues best
penalty kill unit at 85.0% Read more»

Norway News Updates

by Evan Andriopoulos

Norwegian hockey which has from time to time almost fallen off the earth finally has some positive news stemming from their younger players who are making a splash in the international scene. Among them are Per Åge Skroder who plays for semi-finalist HV71 in the Swedish Elite Series along with NHL prospects Johan Davidsson, Anders Huusko and Peter Ekelund. Skroder registered 20 goals and 33 points this season for HV71 and was the only 20 goal scorer on his club. Skroder a 5-10 185 pounder formerly of Sarpsborg, Norway is opening the eyes of NHL scouts with his quiet but steady play. A trip to a NHL camp just may be in the works.

Martin Knold also of Norway is playing defense for Linkøping of the Swedish Elite Series posting(1-9-10) but a poor -9 +/-.

Meanwhile in Germany, Norwegians Trond Magnussen, Tore Vikingstad (St.Louis Prospect) and Tommy Jakobsen are battling it out in the playoffs. Jakobsen`s club the Panthers of Augsburg are set for a position in the finals while Magnussen and Vikingstad were knocked out in the semi-finals. Both play for DEG Metro-Stars.

Back in Sweden the Trygg brothers Marius and Mats have improved their games greatly and look to be long time Swedish League Professionals and National Team stalwarts.

Over the border Frisk Asker led by youngesters Lars Nagel & Rene Sethereng are ready for Norwegian Final. Their opponent is to be decided between Storhamar and VIF Hockey.
