quite a bit to talk about here, just in the last 48 hours alone hithcock was fired, and the thrashers announced they will be trading kovalchuk. ducks and flames made moves already. the hurricanes are awful, the wings are dissapointing. coyotes were bankrupt and eyeing home ice in the playoffs...lets discuss....

I've been hearing rumors of a Hartnell for kovalchuk trade.

The biggest surprise to me has been the play of the Colorado Avalanche. I voiced my prediction at the beginning of the season that they'd be finishing dead last in the west again this year. They've been proving me wrong all season. It's really unbelievable how well they're playing

I've also been really impressed by the emergence of Steve Stamkos, he's been overshadowing St. Louis and especially Lecavalier all season.

in the west, id say the avs, yotes, kings and preds have been surprisingly good. wings, blues and bluejackets surprisingly bad. Not surprised to see names like crosby, ovechkin and thornton in the running for most points but henrik sedin leading the league so far is a bit of a surprise. Marleau and Gaborik are having great seasons so far as well but they have always been great players so not too surprising

the east has fewer surprises. Everyone knew the Caps and Pens were going to be two of the best. Devils, Senators and Sabres have been better than I expected. Flyers, Habs and Bruins have underacheived. And for Carolina to be so bad after reaching the conf finals is a bit surprising.

Carter and Vanek have been disappointing as far goal scoring. Both conf playoff races are tight which will make for a great race down the stretch. If I had to predict now, Id say Caps vs Blackhawks in the cup finals

yeah, avalanche look solid...i'm surprised at how sloppy the bruins look. i'm incredibly impressed at the blackhawks organization for what they've done, they're a force for at least the next 5 years

Ryan Potulny scoring the game winner for edmonton with 16 seconds left in the game last night was a surprise. Refs calling a pentaly on the flyers with two mins left in a tie game unfortunately not a surprise

that will never happen, we'd need to offer way more than that. hartnell is a fucking bum

kovy rejected the 101 million dollar offer because of failing relations on the thrashers, he doesnt want to be part of a sinking ship for 12 years. i dont blame him. he most likely wants a cup, and will probably be like hossa, never tied down more than 5 years
