Adiose, Marc Chouinard / Brodeur says "F**k it!"

The Canucks have placed Chouinard on waivers today, according to RDS. While Chouinard was good on the penalty kill....well.... that was about all he was good at.

The Coyotes have placed Kevyn Adams and Nick Boynton on waivers as well.

The Canadiens' Tony Salmaleinen (acquired in the Samsonov deal) and Jason Culllimore have cleared waivers as they were not claimed by anyone.

In other news, Marty Brodeur has quit the NHL Competition Committee because, well, it doesn't matter what he says, there is nothing more getting done about protecting goaltenders during games.
"I didn't feel I was making a difference, and I hate wasting my time when it doesn't seem to matter," he told the newspaper. "I brought up a lot of different points, suggested different ideas like a bigger crease, but nothing's changed. The protection of goaltenders has just become ridiculous."

Marty Turco is supposed to replace him on the Committee, but I was thinking Roberto Luongo should be a better candidate. The only problem with that is that Louie may not be able to schedule that around his diving lessons....zing!

I got all excited over a rumour the leafs might trade McCabe to the islanders for negotiating rights to Smyth..

Even if Smyth didn't end up signing with the leafs, still would be a sweet move!

Next step, drive antropov out to scarborough and drop him without a map or translator, we'd never have to hear from him again either!

Hahaha! You have a great way with words!

Screw Ryan Smyth! I just want to see a Leafs team show some commitment to team defence and I'd be happy!

I can see Luongo in a competition meeting:

"What? What do you mean the goalie should be fair game behind the net? No way. That should be a penalty. Guys? No, that should be a penalty?"
(Stands up, waiving arms)
"That is a freaking penalty! Huh? What do you mean you just signed it."
(Slumps down to his knees, places head on carpeted floor)
Oh, no, not again!!
