Oh I didn't say they were sane people.  They're the people that are taking the NHL players playing in Euro leagues results a wee bit too seriously.

Oh thank god.

What were his #'s in Europe?  I didn't realize he was having a bang-up season there.

Malkin was doing well and that's helped fuel the, "Pittsburgh wants Sarge back!" rumors people are drooling over here.  Letang was there long enough to put a jersey on in St. Petersburg, and then fly home I guess.  yay!

I'll have to dig a bit for the exact numbers, but he was leading his team in scoring at nearly a point per game.  So some guys are calling for a renaissance year.  It would be interesting, but I don't think so. 

I've always been a huge Gonchar fan and rode his D to a number of wins but I gotta think he's over the hill too.

There are some folks suggesting Jagr will challenge for the scoring title.

Hey now, some folks might have won fantasy NHL titles by taking a chance on him...

I personally blame Jagr for this.  When you drafted him, I chuckled.  I had him lumped in with Hull, Lemieux and Roenick as guys that would retire during the season.  Definitely wrong on Jagr.  Guy that won our office pool picked him too.  I laughed then and I ain't laughing now.  Thornton being traded also helped out a lot.

"Well today is the day we send our governors to NYC to sign the CBA.  I know, let's fire Brian Burke." - someone in Maple Leafs ownership.

What a crazy thing to blow up your front office just as everyone is stressed trying to get their teams jump-started.  I'm guessing the "someone did/didn't want Luongo" speculation will be the correct cause of Burke's sudden dismissal...  we'll find out soon enough I guess.
