Kariya + Sellane = Colorado?!?

Well, if Selanne is back, even I might cheer for them.

From what it sounds like he will be back in 2003-04 season.  He wanted to see if they made the playoffs and how far they get so I think this has made it look like its a done deal.  I know before game 6 the commeators were saying how Kriya was happy to hear he is coming back.  Unfourtautly I need to get use to him not wear number 8 anymore I think since another player has it.

Well, looks like Kariya definitely wanted to play with Selanne again!  That's because they both just signed 1-year deals with Colorado!!!  >:(   :'(   >:(   :'(

I think I'm going to be ill.  Damn!  Here I was hoping Selanne would finally return to Anaheim to reunite with Kariya to produce the excitement of old, and not only does that not happen, but we wind up losing Kariya in the process?!?.  Apparently the Ducks are the ones that let him go too!   ::)

Well, time to permanently get off the bandwagon now (at least until they make the Finals again...  ;)).  But consider me to be very pissed at the Ducks organization for allowing this to happen.  Very sad day in Ducks history...   :(

No!!!!!!!! F*** S*** god D***.    

Hopefully they will be back soon.  I heard the Ducks didn't give him an offer and he became a free agent but they were supposdly trying to get him back.  Stuipid Disney why did you let him go you better get him back in 2005 or else. >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( :'( :'( :'( :'(

I guess when Kriya said "Same Place different Resorts" that he didn't know he wouldn't be on the team.  I still can't believe it hopefully its just a rumor but I doubt it.  Like I said hopefully he will be back and begin Teemu with him.

Wow.  Thanks Matt :o

I was unaware that they both signed with Colorado.  Not only did Anaheim not get both of them, they released Oates as well, yes?

Well, it seems the owners are getting what they want out of free agency.  Wasn't Kariya's contract supposed to be worth 6 million to resign with Anaheim?  If so, and he signed for only 1.2 mill for a single year, I'd say he's pretty pissed off at Anaheim management.  

Selanne took less too, but not such a big hit.  Down from 6.5 to 5.8 mill.  I suppose it doesn't matter much but it sure looks like Colorado is pretty pumped on winning the cup next year before the strike.  

The Red Wings and Federov parted ways officially, at least according to Federov's agent.  That frees up room to sign Hatcher.  Now if only they can figure out what to do with Cujo when Hasek returns.  

Back to Colorado. Will Roy come out of retirement?  Or who will they pick up for the goaltending duties?  Khabibulin was a strong rumour, but can he win a cup?  Will Cujo take a pay cut to go there?

adding by edit:  My bad, Detroit HAS signed Hatcher

All these hockey fanatics in here, and "Hollywood" here is going to have to be the one that brings up the fact that Sergei Federov recently signed... with the DUCKS!!!   :o  That was certainly a most unexpected move, to say the least!  I'm really glad to see we got another superstar to replace the recently departed Kariya at least.

I just pray that this means that Anna Kournikova will be spending more time in the Anaheim/Orange County/L.A. area!   :-*  Still have to hook up with that babe-alicious little treat!   8)

On another NHL note, Luc Robitaille just signed up for his third (and likely final) stint with the L.A. Kings.  Sure, he's past his prime now, but it's nice to see him come back "home" for his last hurrah!

And in a very bizarre, and sad, NHL footnote, anyone catch this story, about the body of a former Islanders pick being found after having gone missing for 14 years?!  Ugh.   :-\

I'm glad something good happened with us losing Kriya.  We gotFederov and another person (forgot his name) that is pretty good with the money the Ducks saved from not having Kriya.  So maybe the Ducks will be good next year without him on the team.

This just in!

My beloved Penguins will suck as much, if not more than last year it seems.

OK, that's no news, but it's all I'm thinking right now...  Sadly, I'll still support them as my #1 pick till they are mathematically out of it.

On a brighter note, it seems like we may wind up with a lovely Casino/Sports Complex for the Penguins to play in should the deal go through...  Of course the city, state, and private individuals involved are all being putzes about it.

Could improve uptown though, especially considering we have the oldest building in the NHL now...  And one that never got used for its intended purposes.

Oh well...  Should be fun watching young players anyway.  Some people who maybe aren't 100% corrupted yet...  Oh, and Lemieux too if he's playing.

Uh Matt, you do realize that Anna is no longer married to, dating and / or sleeping with Sergei anymore, right?  They broke up a couple of years ago - What can I say, I love pop culture and keep up on these things (Plus its Anna, I like to know what's she's doing  ;)).  Your best chance of seeing Anna in person is to go see a Enrique Inglesias concert.  He's her current flame.  Although I don't see you as much of an Enrique fan.

Didn't want to start a thread on this so I've been meaning to stick it here.  Herb Brooks coach of the Miracle on Ice, U of Minn and a bunch of pro teams died in a one car roll over a few miles from where I sit right now.  One of Hockey's greats is no longer with us...
