Dinner with Hunter S. Thompson, Doug Gilmour, Josh Hamilton and Stefan Legein?

Stefan Legein […] spent his OHL career with the IceDogs organization (Mississauga and later Niagara). In 2006-07 he had a breakout year in the OHL, putting up 75 points in 64 games to go along with his 115 penalty minutes. He [was] part of the Canadian World Junior squad that eventually won the Gold Medal […]. The 5’8, 200 pound forward was selected 37th overall in the 2007 NHL Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets.  Much was made of his unexpected, yet brief, retirement [in 2008]. Stefan was later traded to the Flyers and then dealt to the Kings […]. He just signed a 1 year, 2-way deal with the Kings […].

Devil people: “Doan is reportedly asking for as close to a 4 year – 30 million dollar contract which is quite a lot, even for him. Still, if the Devils feel they need the scoring presence in the absence of Parise, would you want the Devils to reach out to Doan and try to reach an agreement?”

Top 10 Dallas Stars players of all time: No. 9 Darryl Sydor

He and Zubov played a lot of games together, and Sydor ranks 11th all-time in Stars history in games played at 714. Included in that run with Dallas were two trips to the All-Star Game (1998 and 1999). He finished with 99 playoff appearances for the Stars, and he finished with four trips to the Stanley Cup Final in his career (also with Los Angeles in 1993 and with Tampa Bay in 2004 — he won the Cup with the Lightning).

Preds match: thoughts

Note to Elliotte Friedman and other chuckleheads who think Weber’s deal with Preds can’t be modified: It can. Only the “principal terms” (how much and when and for how long) can’t be altered. Why on earth Nashville would give Weber a no-move clause now is another question. Frankly, I would be more inclined to send…

Rick Nash Trade: who won?

I don’t know. But I’ll tell you this much: there’s next to zero chance of the Rangers finishing with more than last year’s 109 points and Columbus finishing with less than last year’s 65.
