Foot Fungus!

What a wired title eh? I was just at the doctors to get a few spots on my foot looked at, and the doctors have no idea what it is, so here's hoping it clears up! Lets move on to something a little less disgusting...

According to Eklund, the Leafs are going to make some changes in goal. Obviously Belfour is likely to stay as their number one, but Noronen has come up in a lot of rumours. It is said that Buffalo may try and send him down to the AHL, but he would have to clear waivers to do so, and Toronto and Atlanta would be two of the teams that would attempt to pick him up. Tellqvist and Aubin are not impressing the Leafs management at this point. Speaking of the Leafs, Bryan Marchment was let go today, leaving Steve Thomas as the only tryout still at the Leaf's camp.

The Blues finally got some good news today, as Keith Tkchuk has returned to camp after being sent home with a weight problem. They must be thrilled to see one of their top scrorers back in time to start the season. If the Blues have any chance this season, he will have to produce a lot of points. Speaking of players badly needed in the lineup, Calgary has lost a huge part of it's blueline. Robyn Regehr will miss at least a month with a knee injury. The Flames must be really happy they signed Hamrlik, as without him the Flames would have a problem on defense.

There is a very quiet whisper going around that a Kovalchuk for Jagr deal is in the works. Don't believe it, as it is highly unlikely. Can you imagine Atlanta trading their two biggest players in one offseason? Atlanta is building a strong, young team, and a guy like Jagr does not fit into what they are doing.

Going back to Marchment, I wouldn't be surprised if Ottawa signed him. Detroit, Colorado, and San Jose all apparently have interest, but Marchment may retire due to the fact that he only wanted to play for Toronto, and nobody else.

Patrick Roy is now a coach! The former NHL star goaltender has been named new head coach of the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. QMJHL now, NHL eventually? How great would it be to see him return one day to coach the Habs (thats funny), or the Avs?

Anyways, thats all for now. My radio interview was pushed back until tonight at 7 pm, but the good news is it will be put on the Friday Night Radio show. Check out the link on the right side of the blog (Blueline Hockey Talk Radio) for show time, I'll try to get a link on this site tomorrow so you all can listen. I'll post again later tonight if anything happens!
