Team Canada: Most Impressed

So far after two games who impressed the staff the most?

Scott Wedgewood: Shutout plus an assist after two periods? Yes. Drafted in the 3rd Round? Even better.
Ryan Strome: 11 Points in a game and two periods? He's something special. The Islanders have something special going.
Scott Harrington: He's not the flashiest player or the player who gets the points but he's hardworking. You won't see him that often unless you focus on him. If I were a new GM and I need to draft a team, he's definitely on it. Not that he's the guy who will get you points ,but the character leader of the team.

Who's impressed you the most? COMMENT BELOW!


Niitymaki being shopped.
Suter being viewed as available.
Nash isint being traded.
It would take an INSANE offer to get Bobby Ryan
Raycroft is on waivers, rumors say that Blue Jackets and Bolts. might pick him up.
Don't expect Randy Cunneyworth to be behind the Habs bench for too long. Rumblings say that Montreal wants a new coach. One that doesn't have to have lots of experience, but preferably Quebec born.
Once available Zach Parise is no longer available. Doubt that he resigns though.

OFFICIAL: Toronto Maple Leafs call up Korbinian Holzer from the Toronto Marlies.
Analysis: Reliable Defensive Defenseman. Third Line Defenseman. Will most likely achieve his potential.

Carolina Rebuilding

I just had a chat with one of my sources and he indicated that Carolina will go into SERIOUS rebuilding mode in the next few weeks if the slide continues. The team will most certainly trade Tom Gleason. The team most intrested in his services is Philadelphia Flyers. The return will most likely be a draft pick and a prospect. The only untouchables are Jeff Skinner, Eric Staal, and Cam Ward.
