    As a Blackhawks fan I really hope the Wings don't make it to the finals. It's a great hockey town but they've had their time. I know the hawks most likely won't make it to the finals but have been happy just to see the great strides made in the last two years. Next year may be are time. I agree that San Jose is the team to beat.

    damn. I hate the hawks, but I still would push them over anyone else in the west. Got to respect whats left of the Norris

    That said, unless the red wings do something drastic like shoot Osgood, I wont fully support them. I hated Osgood the first time they got rid of him and this last playoffs aside he generally has sucked as a goalie his whole life. I swear ever since the wings first got competitive back in the mid 90's goal tending was always the achilles heel until they got hasek. You cannot expect to win with a sub 90% save, I dont care what your GAA is.

    He must also hold the record for marrying sisters-in-law.

    Maybe a 'Marty Brodeur hat-trick' can be introduced for goalies: A shut-out, an assist, and marrying a sister-in-law.

    I absolutely do not like Briere, completely overrated IMO. The Flyers should have went after Gomez or Drury. They would have been a better fit for us. Plus, they are proven winners. The only dumb reason was to bring in Biron, who is just an average goalie.

    I don't know about overrated. No one has more playoff points since the lockout. I'll be glad to see Biron (hopefully) go after this season.

    Hats off to Detroit for doing so well with a mediocre goalie.

    Very busy waiver wire day today. Lots of names that would fit well as bottom-6 depth/character guys (e.g. Gary Roberts, Jon Sim, Aaron Voros). Plus a few offensive players as well (e.g. Satan, Morrison).

    Sure I'll give him playoff points. But I feel like he doesn't have the drive/passion in his game to carry the team. Biron was a complete mistake. Like I said, just an average goalie at best that was untested.

    Jay Bouwmeester would be nice.

    He is signing with the Oilers this summer.

    I know! Wasn't happy to hear about their acquisitions. Jokinen will be huge for them.

    Winners today? Calgary and Boston.

    Phoenix dismantled their team, but got a pretty good base to rebuild from; Upshall, Lombardi, Dawes and picks.

    I like Carcillo. He's mean (leads the league in PIMs) and can score on occasion. I suppose the Flyers weren't planning on re-signing Upshall. Just wish they didn't give up that pick.
    I don't think the cup will be coming to Philly this year with that move, though.
