Day One: Hawks Make Zhamnov Happy – Will the Fans Be Next?

by Bill Placzek
on
I made my feelings clear that if things fell in place, Don Blackburn could
have been taken at #9. I really didn’t think he would be there. Or maybe I
felt Ruutu’s knee surgeries would knock him down a notch. Nonetheless,
Blackburn was higher on my board and I would have taken him.

Even if all the Hawk farm goalies develop, you can never have enough
goalies. Ask San Jose, Buffalo, and New Jersey who take one or two early each
year. That was my thinking …. one of the elite eight.

Don’t get me wrong, it is difficult to quibble when your home team takes a
winner, already in the top Finnish league and the hardest working,
orneriest,solid muscle mass forechecker available.
And when Ruutu gets back on his skates in August after the TWO problems with his knee are healed he may be a better pro than Blackburn.

When Dallas takes the goalie you are going to take as an alternative to
Blackburn, Freeze goalie Jason Bacashihua, two picks before you, you don’t
panic!

You either trade out or you go to another position, but you do not REACH!

If you do, to use Mel Kiper’s coined expression, you simply don’t know what
the draft is about.

To take Adam Munro was an insult to each of us, as he was clearly not the
best player available.

Into the 3rd round, Michel Goulet stopped and I asked his interpretation of
this blunder. I said to him, “You KNOW they (Blackhawks) went goalie because
Dallas took the kid they wanted. Honestly, was Munro that high on the
Avalanche board?” He shook his head head Read more»

Rangers Deal Adam Graves for Two Prospects

by Brandon LeBourveau
on
It is truly a sad day for all Rangers fans, as Adam Graves tenure as a New York Rangers has come to an end. Today GM Glen Sather dealt Adam Graves, known to us as “Gravey”, to the San Jose Sharks in return for 24 year old forward Mikael Samuelsson and 24 year old defenseman Christian Gosselin.

From Glen Sather’s standpoint, I’m sure he felt it was the best interest for his hockey club to trade Adam Graves, rather than buy him out and not get anything in return. The San Jose Sharks have been trying to acquire Adam Graves for years, and at least Gravey gets to go someplace where he is wanted. I don’t like this deal as a Rangers fan, as Graves is a great player in the locker room and he is a leader on this team. With the possible additions of a couple of rookies to the lineup this season, Graves could have helped out greatly with the youngsters. Adam Graves always gave whatever he could to charity and he gave up a lot of his time to visit sick and needy kids. Graves’ play tailed off this past season, mostly because he was still trying to get over the death of his baby Jackson, who died soon after being born two months premature. Graves was a big part of our 1994 Stanley Cup Championship team, as he broke the Rangers record by scoring the most goals in the Regular Season by a Ranger with 52, and that record still stands to this day. A lot of fans will be sad over this deal and I am one of them. But sometimes painful decisions have to be made, and unfortunately this was one of them.

Trying to look at things positively, the Rangers may have gotten themselv Read more»
