Coyotes Welcome New Faces

by Brandon LeBourveau
on

Everyone around the NHL knew that the re-signing of goaltender Sean Burke to a 3 year contract officially meant that the Phoenix Coyotes decided to start taking offers on goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin, who hasn’t played a game in the NHL since the ’98-’99 season because of a contract dispute. Right from the get-go lots of teams were interested in acquiring the Russian netminder’s services, with the front-runners being the Tampa Bay Lightning, New York Rangers and Atlanta Thrashers. Coyotes’ General Manager Cliff Fletcher was offered a deal by the Tampa Bay Lightning that he couldn’t refuse.

Heading to the Tampa Bay Lightning is of course Nikolai Khabibulin, along with defenseman Stanislav Neckar. In return the Coyotes acquired an excellent group of young players in defenseman Paul Mara, forwards Mike Johnson and Ruslan Zainullin, and a 2nd round draft pick in the up-coming 2001 Entry Draft. In my opinion, this was a great deal for the Coyotes. They acquired some great young players for a guy that was sitting at home and wasn’t helping their team.

Paul Mara is a 6’4 205 pound, 21 year old steady two-way defenseman with a good offensive upside. He was drafted 7th overall in the 1997 Draft by the Lightning, and he was highly regarded in their organization until this season, when they grew tired of Mara’s lack of development. They felt he hasn’t been improving much over the last year or so and don’t envision him becoming the Brian Leetch/Chris Chelios type of defenseman he has been compared to. With the depth at defense in the Tampa Bay organization, they felt it wo Read more»

Remaniement de la formation des Ducks

by Vincent Belisle
on
Les ducks sont arrivé dans la NHL pour la saison 93-94. Pour une équipe d’expansion, la venu d’une vedette est une chance incroyable d’associé son publique à ce ou ces joueurs.

En quelque jours seulement, les Ducks se sont départi de 2 joueurs qui ont été pendant quelques années, toute la concession.

En 1993, lors du repêchage d’expansion, les Mighty Ducks mettent la main sur Guy Hebert. Un gardiens qui avait a peine joué 40 match dans la NHL. Deux ans plus tard, Jack Ferreira réussi a faire l’acquisition de Teemu Selanne, une excellente prise pour les fans de l’équipe.

Mais voilà que le mois de mars fût catastrophique pour les conservateurs, et un pas en avant pour les plus positifs. Teemu Selanne , l’auteur de 423 points en 333 matchs avec les Mighty Ducks a été échanger au Sharks en retour de Steve Shields et Jeff Friesen. Deux joueurs qui peuvent connaître des hauts et des bas. Shields est réputé pour être inconstant. Friesen se veut plus une valeurs sûre dans cet échange.

Le lendemain, Guy Hébert a été pris du ballotage par les Rangers de New-York. Hebert s ‘était avéré le gardiens #1 de l’équipe depuis les débuts de la concession.

En 2 jours, ce qu’avait été la concession pendant 4-5 ans a été démolie. Il reste a voir si Pierre Gauthier a eu raison de bougé comme il l’a fait. Et si c’est la fin des changements, parce que sa commence a grondé à Anaheim. L’équipe en est à sa huitième saison et les résultats ne sont pas encore la, et nous somme Read more»

Rangers acquire young grit

by Evan Andriopoulos
on
Glen Sather`s pick up of kids like Ryan Tobler a tough 220 pounder, international veteran via St.Louis Petr Smrek and NHL young journeyman Colin Forbes appears to be leading the Rangers to a restocking of inventory which in modern day sports management would lead us to believe something big may happen.

While it appears Sather has lost the opportunity to deal with Gretzky for that ever elusive Keith Tkachuk package there are still possibilities out there as it appears Sather has grown tired of waiting for the Brendls, Mottaus, Lundmarks and Yeremeyevs to jump up and say “I am ready…let me lead”… Sather appears to have offered the above named, ex.Yeremeyev in each and every deal for someone of value today and for the future. Even fan favorite and work horse Mike York has been mentioned in possible deals. But Sather keeps working at rebuilding Hartford of the AHL for a run at another AHL championship and maybe restocking the talent that has not yet been traded away.

The pick up of Guy Hebert could be either of two things… one, a move to give the Rangers a last effort at decency…or two, a move to push Kirk McLean out and Mike Richter to a stronger return next season. While stunting the growth of Yeremeyev, still a bright spot in the eyes of the scouts, Yeremeyev has been treated the same as was Milan Hnilinka before him…without any sign of defense. The system still features many bright prospects of which some may be dealt sooner than later…but those from Europe (Lundqvist and Asplund) the Rangers would get a better return by showcasing th Read more»
