Ray Fucking Emery was the man tonight!! Hossa scored with two seconds to go in the game to tie the score at 2. Hawks won the shoot out after neither team scored in OT. Emery was just tremendous. Best game I've ever seen him play.

The Rangers just traded Mike Rupp to the Wild for Darroll Powe and Nick Palmieri. Sounds like a salary dump.

Trade: Wild gets Rupp from Rangers for Powe, Palmieri

Jason Brough

Feb 4, 2013, 2:07 PM EST

The Minnesota Wild has added some toughness to its lineup, acquiring big winger Mike Rupp from the New York Rangers in return for forwards Darroll Powe and Nick Palmieri.

Rupp, 33, will join his sixth NHL team and reunite with Wild head coach Mike Yeo, who was an assistant in Pittsburgh when Rupp was with the Penguins.

Rupp — who has 53 goals and 765 PIM in 565 career NHL games, plus a Stanley Cup ring from the 2003 Devils — is signed through next season with a cap hit of $1.5 million.

Said Wild GM Chuck Fletcher: “Rupp is a big guy who has won the Stanley Cup. He brings size, experience and grit to our lineup.”

Powe, 27, has yet to register a point in eight games this season and is signed through 2013-14 with a cap hit of $1.06 million.

Palmieri, 23, has 10 goals and 11 assists in 40 games with AHL Houston and will go straight to the Connecticut Whale. He’s a pending restricted free agent.

Sounds more like trading a big piece of crap for 2 smaller pieces of crap.

Stupid trade by the Rangers. Rupp is very good at His role of a 4th liner Who can grind things out and put in puck in the net every once in a while. Powe blows, but Palmieri in the right situation can be a servicable players.

The Hawks beat San Jose last night 5-3. Hawks are now 8-0-2. Strange game. The Sharks scored two quick goals. Coach Q called time out. The Hawks responded and the score at the end of the first period was 3-3. Hawks scored once in the 2nd period to go up 4-3. Patrick Kane added an empty netter with seconds remaining in the game to make it 5-3. Kaner has been awesome so far this year.

Big win tonight for the Bruins as they beat the Habs 2-1 in Montreal. Rask played a great game especially in the first period when Montreal could have scored 4 goals. Julien switched up his lines to start the 3rd period and the new line of Krejci, Seguin and Lucic scored twice in the first 2 minutes to give Boston the lead which they never relinquished. Boston now has a 7-1-1 record and has only given up 20 goals in those 9 games.

There is a rumour out there that Boston has traded Tim " I'm Taking The Year Off " Thomas to the NY Islanders for a conditional 2014 or 2015 2nd round pick.Sweet deal if true since Boston would now have an extra $ 5 million to use to add another player.

TSN Just confirmed the deal:


The Boston Bruins have traded goaltender Tim Thomas to the New York Islanders in exchange for a conditional draft pick in 2014 or 2015.

Thomas announced last summer that he was taking a year off from hockey.

Thomas is in the final year of his current contract, which carries a $5 million cap hit for the 2012-13 season. The no-movement clause that is a part of the deal expired last July 1.

The 38-year-old went 35-19-1 with a 2.36 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage this past season. In the playoffs, he had a 2.14 GAA and a .923 save percentage. Boston lost in seven games to Washington in the first round.

Thomas won the 2009 and 2011 Vezina Trophy, and has a 196-121-45 record and 2.48 GAA in 378 career games with the Bruins. In 50 postseason games, he holds a 29-21 mark with a 2.07 GAA.

Thomas won the 2011 Conn Smythe Trophy after leading Boston to its first Stanley Cup title since 1972.

More to follow.




Rumour has it that Boston will now go hard after Iginla.

EDIT - Islander GM Garth Snow confirmed that Boston will get the pick if Thomas plays at least 1 game for the Islanders.

Hawks beating Phoenix 6-1 in the 3rd period. Rafi Torres and Jamal Mayers fought early in the 1st period. Not much of a fight really but supposedly payback for Rafi injuring Hossa last year. Ray Emery in net. Hawks about to go 9-0-2 to start the season.

A deal that helps both teams. Boston gets rid of his salary & gets cap room.
NY needed to add salary in order to reach the league minimum.
There's no way Thomas plays a game for NY. If he does, Boston gets a second round draft pick.

This is why I hope baseball never gets a salary cap.
