I feel bad for Carey Price. I really do. Kid is only 21 years old, in the biggest hockey mad town there is, playing during their centennial and some ignorant fans want him to win the Stanley Cup singlehandedly.

Maybe if his defence didn't turn the puck over, or the forwards came back on the backcheck, maybe if some players showed some grit, he wouldn't be left out to dry every time.

It's just ridiculous

Ken Dryden was loved by Montreal. They expect Price to be Roy and that he is not.

When Gainey traded Huet last year, I knew this team was finished. You can't just throw the yonugin to the wolves. The Habs NEED to get an experienced vet backup for next season - just to have someone that Price can lean on.

I'm talking about in general. That kid needs a mentor, especially in the market he plays in.

As for the Canadiens, when they're motivated, they can beat anyone, but in this case, it looked like they had no fire. They hardly put up a fight. The team's gonna have a new look next year, especially with a lot of UFA's in the lineup.

Kudos to the B's for not letting off the pedal. Let's see if the extra rest works against them.

Second NHL Team on TO
hockey gets too much coverage in Canada, its on the front page of a lot sites and gets the most replies

Quote:
A group of business people wants to bring a second team to the Greater Toronto Area, and the National Hockey League took the group seriously enough to grant it an audience.

The unidentified group met with NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly in downtown Toronto last week, according to sources. The group proposes to build an arena at the intersection of Highways 427 and 7 in Vaughan, Ont., on land north of Pearson International Airport that's owned by businessman Victor De Zen.

Vaughan may be that much farther removed from the Air Canada Centre, home to the Maple Leafs in the downtown core, to make a second team acceptable to Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, owner of the Leafs.

The total cost would be upward of $800-million — perhaps $200-million for the franchise, at least $200-million in territorial-rights fees and up to $400-million for an arena.

Sources say Mr. De Zen has no interest in owning an NHL team but may be willing to participate in an arena deal. A source said Joseph Sgro, general manager of Mr. De Zen's company, Zzen Group of Companies, was represented at the meeting.

This will become my hockey team since I'm from Vaughan

It's about time. It would make so much money. What they really should do is move one of the teams in the southern market (ie Phoenix, Atlanta) to Toronto.

that's the only viable option.

any expansion of the NHL is just plain insane.

thats what they'll do
they're already trying to remove the lease in Phoenix, so the Coyotes are prime to move. Losing $35 mil annually will make it easier

I'm ready for a 416 vs. 905 rivalry

Yes this will be fun to watch. There will possibly be a new rivalry and hopefully people will watch this team more often and MLSE will be forced to spend a lot of money on FA'S

You do realize there is a hard cap in the NHL, right? You can't just go out and spend to your heart's content.
