    Re: Hockey 2008 - 2009

    Woooo! Go Pens!! Wow, what a game! I got really scared there toward the end. That was a very intense game from beginning to end. In fact, it was a very intense series from beginning to end. Congrats to both teams for making it that far, but congrats to the Pens for winning the cup!!

    PugMum, love the pic. It felt wrong that I was not only happy for the Pens, but also happy that Hossa missed out on the cup again. It definitely was sweet justice. I can't believe he left a great contract with the Pens for a mediocre one year contract with the Wings because he thought they had a better shot at winning the cup.
    Wake up and be awesome

    What an amazing Stanley Cup final game!!! And what a great Stanley Cup series. I think I nearly had a heart attack about 12 times last night. It really could have gone either way.

    I'm so happy that the Pens won, and I hope we get to have another rematch with the Red Wings next year!

    Congrats to the Pens!! No more re-matches, I'm ready for someone new.

    As a friend of mine said the new season starts in a week or so with the draft, free agency, and then training camp. You gotta love hockey.

    *siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh* That was a great series... very intense. I just wish both teams could have played their best so we could have seen an even MORE exciting series (could we have taken it? )

    I've tried to eek out empathy for Hossa... but if he hadn't played like complete and utter crap during the series perhaps things would have been different, eh?

    Fleury should have definitely won the CS. It was his performance in the last two games that won it for the Pens.

    Way to go Mason! A very well deserved award.

    LAS VEGAS Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Steve Mason has won the Calder Trophy as the NHL rookie of the year.

    Mason beat Anaheim's Bobby Ryan and Chicago's Kris Versteeg for the first award handed out Thursday night at the NHL awards ceremony.

    Mason topped the league with 10 shutouts and ranked second with a 2.29 goals-against average, leading Columbus to its first playoff appearance. He was the first rookie to lead the NHL in shutouts since Chicago's Tony Esposito in 1970.

    Ryan led rookies with 31 goals, despite playing only 64 games. Versteeg topped first-year players with 31 assists to help the Blackhawks reach the postseason for the first time since 2002.

    Thanks for posting the list, Unk.
    I have the show on my PVR to watch later.
    So pleased to see Mason, Ovi, Chara and Thomas win awards.
    I was hoping Zednik would win the Masterton, but Sullivan is a very worthy winner.

    I was pleased to see Moreau get an humanitarian award too.
    I hope Andrew Ference will be considered for that in future years for the work he does for the environment and for his involvement with Right To Play.

    Thanks for the link, Unk!

    Although I was disappointed with the outcome, it is some consolation that the cup will be back in the Bay courtesy of Jordan Staal. Hopefully I will get close enough to take some pictures!

    Re: Hockey 2008 - 2009

    The entry draft has started and even though there was some speculation that the Islanders would take Hedman, they did decide to take Tavares.

    One big trade that will no doubt interest Pugmum is Pronger to Philly in exchange for Lupul, yes Pronger traded for Lupul again, plus Luca Sbisa and two first round picks.

    There was a lot of buzz about Philly wanting Bouwmeester, but I would imagine this trade ends that speculation.

    The Anaheim Ducks have traded defenceman Chris Pronger and forward Ryan Dingle to the Philadelphia Flyers for defenceman Luca Sbisa, forward Joffrey Lupul, two first-round picks and a conditional third-round pick in 2010 or 2011.

    Pronger, a native of Dryden, Ontario, was originally drafted second overall by the Hartford Whalers in 1993, but was traded two years later to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Brendan Shanahan.

    In nine seasons with the Blues, the 34-year-old flourished into the outstanding defenceman many expected he would become out of junior, winning the Hart and Norris Trophies in the 1999-2000 campaign.

    Following the 2004-05 lockout, and with the Blues facing financial hardships, Pronger was dealt to Edmonton for a package that included defenceman Eric Brewer.

    Pronger signed a long-term deal with the Oilers but following one season in which he led the Oilers to the Stanley Cup Final, the enigmatic blueliner demanded a trade. Pronger was subsequently traded to the Ducks in exchange for Joffrey Lupul, Ladislav Smid and three early round draft picks.

    Pronger spent three seasons with the Ducks, winning the Stanley Cup in 2006-07.

    Dingle, 25, was signed by the Ducks as an unrestricted free agent in 2007. The 5'10, 190-pound forward had 11 goals and 7 assists in 70 games last season with the Iowa Chops of the AHL.

    25-year-old Lupul had 25 goals and 25 assists for the Flyers in 2008-09. He was originally selected by the Ducks seventh overall in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.

    Sbisa, 19, had seven assists in 39 games with the Flyers last season, also spending time with the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the WHL and the Philadelphia Phantoms of the AHL.

    Pronger for Lupul + others. Haven't they done that trade once already. Didn't work so good the last time for the team getting Lupul (ie. my Oilers). Hope JL likes it back in Anaheim and I hope Pronger crashes and burns. Yep, I'm still bitter.
