Forsberg close to retirement?

The Courier Post on-line is reporting that Forsberg may be close to retirement.

If the Canucks were to trade.

Fair enough, the Canucks play the season has been less then stellar; they have suffered many defensive set backs mixed with being unable to score. Many people are suggesting trades but they seem too implausible or trade our young to get better now, the same mistake the Canucks have made forever.

Matvichuk placed on waivers

various sources are reporting that the Devils have placed the D-man on waivers. He will cost a team $1.39mil if they want to pick him up.

The good, The bad, and the ugly start for the Leafs

An optimist could argue the leafs are a top notch offensive team waiting for the defense to find its groove before the team takes off. A pesimist would argue their a bad team on a hot streak, waiting to collapse into the basement once the scoring slows down.
