DISSECTING RUMORS


I have to admit, NHL hockey rumor sites are fun to look at. They provide possiblities and fantasies, and total bulls**t. Here are the latest rumors floating around the hockey world.

*There are rumors that Evgeni Malkin is in Toronto right now. Well, my sources say he's already in Pittsburgh, hiding in a farmer's potato cellar. Ever eat raw potatos? I have, it sucks!

*Another rumor is from the same site, saying that the Canadiens could trade D Mike Komisarek to the Islanders to make room for J.P. Dumont. Well, this probably isn't going to happen because the Isles signed D Sean Hill today.

*More word on the street..the Sabres could still be looking to sign Dumont long term. I doubt it. Are they allowed to sign a guy they turned down after arbitration? That's never been done has it?
Dumont will get paid less on another team is my guess.
By the way, you know it's a crappy time in the offseason when one of your best stories is about J.P. Dumont! (as far as transactions go)

*There are rumors that the Canucks could sign G Steve Shields to back up Roberto Luongo. They have played together before in Florida. His agent is saying that Shields would be happy being Luongo's backup and wouldn't cause any disruption.
In my opinion, I don't think this should happen, as Flaherty will do just fine. Nonis needs to shore up other areas I think.

Should I consider this a strong rumor, then?

Nah, that patchwork team looks just fine. Luongo should be able to take the division by himself if provided with a happy backup.

I'm not convinced Flaherty will do just fine. Something about a 38 year old "rookie" doesn't really give me a lot of confidence.

That being said, why the hell would Steve Shields be any better? ?Yeah, lets work on other areas frist, m'kay?

Jin, my thoughts exactly!

Yeah right Earl, I sense your sarcasm all the way over here!

Trade Komisarek to make room for Dumont? That's completely laughable. Komi makes $900,000, Dumont is looking for $2M over 3 or 4. Komi and Markov are the future of the Habs D. There isn't one player one the Islander roster that could fetch him one on one!

The Blogger software has a Hab-5000 mainframe that selects comments with the strongest pro-Montreal content and duplicates them for emphasis.

Must have been quite a statement.

You drunken bastard!

Hey, I'm still getting popups with your stupid chat board.

Dare I say it is as lame as your polls?

Yeah, I dare.

well, you can trash talk all you want, but you KNOW who owned your sorry ass at poker!
The chat board may need to go, as free chat boards aren't 'safe' enough
