Offseason notes

by Brian Roe
on

David Legwand is working with established trainer Charles Poloquin. Legwand will be spending a few days a week with Poloquin and then take the program back with him to Michigan until Training Camp opens.

”It seems like everyone who works with him has a breakout year afterward,” said Legwand’s agent, Pat Morris.

Charles Poloquin has worked with Chris Pronger, Al MacInnis, Gary Roberts and more recently Wade Redden, Martain LaPointe, and Eric Brewer. The Preds and Legwand are both hoping Poloquin continues his winning streak.

And last but not least, GM David Poile is back in contact with centerman Petr Sykora. The Preds are hoping Sykora can play in Nashville as early as next season. The highly touted 22-year old center scored 44 points in 47 games last season in the Czech Republic.

In the NHL Entry Draft next weekend, the Predators own the 12th overall pick in the first round and then own two picks in the second and third rounds. This year’s draft, the deepest draft since Nashville joined the NHL, is the most important one Nashville has ever been apart of.

Former IHL Teams to Compete in Same Division

by Andrew Bourgeois
on
The inclusion of the Manitoba Moose into the American Hockey League brings the league’s Canadian content to five teams, but don’t expect the Winnipeg-based team to join the Canadian Division.

The division which once included the Calder Cup champion Saint John Flames, St. John’s Maple Leafs, Quebec Citadelles and Hamilton Bulldogs might be scrapped entirely.
AHL president Dave Andrews had hoped to announce the divisional makeup and tentative schedule for next season, but last-minute differences over the proposed scheme has necessitated more talks.

It is expected, however, the former IHL teams will form their own division.

The Flames, Leafs and Citadelles are reportedly set to join a division with a number of New England teams, possibly Portland, Manchester, Worcester and Lowell, with the Bulldogs bound for another grouping. The Leafs’ schedule is dominated with 12 games each against the other Canadian-based teams, a trend that will continue next season. But while St. John’s won’t likely meet Utah, Chicago, Houston, Grand Rapids and Milwaukee, the Leafs will play the Moose at least four times.

Just as there was back in 1991 when St. John’s joined the AHL, some concern was expressed about travelling to far-off cities like Winnipeg, Houston and Salt Lake City.
However, the league has established a travel equalization fund, cost-shared equally among all clubs to the tune of about $15,000 each.

That’s good news for the Leafs, who had been paying about $65,000 per season in travel subsidies.

Maple Leafs Sign Christian Chartier

by Randy Nicholson
on
Doubtless many Leafs fans were mildly disappointed when the team failed to execute a contract with North Bay’s Peter Reynolds prior to the June 1st deadline. Although the 1999 second rounder had largely underachieved throughout his OHL career, Reynolds had displayed solid physical and leadership skills at the Leafs’ Rookie Camp in Kitchener last fall. Many scouts still believe that Peter’s abilities are best suited to the professional game and that he will yet carve out a significant niche for himself in the years ahead.

Sometimes disappointment can be extremely short lived. On June 5th, the Maple Leafs used the funds that had previously been ear marked for the Reynolds contract in order to ink WHL Defender-Of-The-Year Christian Chartier from the WHL’s Prince George Cougars. The former 1999 Edmonton draftee failed to sign with the Oilers prior to the deadline and was an unrestricted free agent due to the fact that he was born in 1980 (December 29th). During the 2000/2001 season, the 6-1 ft. 215 lb. defender had truly blossomed, scoring 12 goals and 68 points in 63 games while also racking up 99 PIM. CSS reports indicate that Chartier is a smooth powerful skater, an excellent passer and a highly efficient finesse-based defender. The Maple Leafs now possess arguably the two best offensive blueliners from junior hockey last season – the other being Jon Zion of the Ottawa 67’s.

Afte.r this signing, complaints that the Maple Leafs had overpaid for Chartier were quickly overheard around the NHL. This criticism should be welcome news to all Read more»
