The 3rd Season: Rumors aplenty

That would be, the summer. And already rumors are running rampant around the NHL. The Philadelphia Inquirer states that Scott Gomez would be a perfect fit with the Flyers in the absence of Forsberg.

Another rumor is that the Sharks are taking a long hard look at Chris Drury and may be willing to pay a high price for him.

In sad news, former Canucks assistant coach and scout Jack McIlhargey has a new job as assistant coach to Flyers' John Stevens. Former NHL great Joe Mullen will also assist Stevens and help with the power play. McIlhargey is no stranger to Flyers fans, as he was a rugged defenceman for Philly for about 3 seasons. Jack was the Canucks' assistant coach between 1985 and 1991 and as well 1999-2004.

Mark Gandler, Alexei Yashin's agent said on Friday: "It would be sweet for him to come back and help Ottawa (win the Stanley Cup) ... (and) restore relationships he had there. It would be a movie-like type of return."
Haha! Yeah, a really long, boring, shitty sequel!

That Yashin comment was hilarious. I lived in Ottawa right around the time they shipped his ass out of town, and I don't think they would welcome that slacker back with open arms. The most entertaining stuff was Frank magazine (ottawa based humour/rumour mag) having reports on Alexei's goings on with various hotties, Carol Alt etc. Apparently Alexei likes the rough stuff! Being on the receiving end of it, that is. Hey, whatever floats your boat!

The most exciting trade rumour I heard was the possibility of shipping McCabe off to the islanders. Since his wife is from there etc, it's pretty much the only place he'd rather be than toronto. Make it happen!! Pleeeeease!

McCabe to anywhere but T.O. would be an early Xmas present!
