Hockeybuzz Blogger Irate!

I can't tell you how many emails i've recieved today about the Panthers loss last night. I can't tell you the number of blogs I've read today by angry Panthers' fans. I'm going to call a blogger out right now, in fact...

Never have I read more of an annoying blog in my life. Yes, I'm a Leaf fan, but I'm also a hockey fan, and I watched the game last night as a hockey fan.

Did White deserve a penalty? Probably, but here is my problem with all the whiners today. Exactly after this White/Stumpel incident happened, Jay Bouwmeester almost ended the goal, but was robbed by a great/lucky save by Vesa Toskala (yes, he did get a piece of the puck, i've watched it over and over to be sure). If Toskala misses that save, the Panthers win. Mr. Spiegal would not have had to write his blog today like he did, in fact it probably would have praised the Panthers for a great victory over the Leafs.

Unfortunatly for Mr. Spiegal and the rest of the Panthers' fanbase, Toskala did get his stick on the puck, the Leafs did carry the puck down the ice, Craig Anderson did give up a huge rebound (for the second time in the game), and Nik Antropov ended the game in Toronto's favour.

To suggest the referees in this game should be suspended is idiotic. Both teams traded chances after this incident, and unfortunatly for the Panthers, Toronto made theirs count. Every game referee's miss calls, they can't get everything. Yes, White dropped his gloves, but he never punched Stumpel or hit him once the gloves were off. They were both chipping at each other on the boards, and you could have called a number of penalties. The refs chose to let the teams play, and so they did. Like I said, Florida had first shot to end this game, and they didn't. After that, it's fair game.

I also like how he chose to complain how the Panthers went from being near the top to the top of the league's most penalized. Don't blame the refs, blame your team. Whether your 25th or 30th in the league in PMs, you have a problem that needs fixed. The difference between 25 and 30 is not important, your team needs to behave better either way.

Every team gets shafted by bad calls. As a Leaf fan, I remember the goal Jason Blake scored against Ottawa that was called back, even though it shouldnt have been. Take that bad call back, and the Leafs are over .500 right now. Ref's make mistakes, but in this case, I think they did alright.

Like I said, Jay Bouwmeester scores that goal, and Panthers fans everywhere are not complaining a bit...

Fantasy Anyone?

I'm thinking of setting up an official Hockeyleaks Yahoo league with a live draft, if you want in email me at They fill up fast usually so email me soon.

Looking at the PPFL standings today, I see a lot of people who will be hurt by Souray's injury. Daniel Laframboise's team 1 is currently winning with 62 points, but it's still early! Bob Adamski, the two time PPFL champ, had a strong night last night and he's always one to watch! Both my teams sit 12 points back with 52 points, and to think, I didnt pick a player twice, thats consistant!

The site has been updated, and a reminder that rumours are now updated daily so make sure to check them out. A lot of great games tonight, should be a lot of fun to watch. Make sure to check the betting zone for my best bets. If you were playing $5 a day on daily double, through six days you'd be up $25, as I'm 5-1! Tonight will be tough though, as it's Detroit over San Jose, and I always find it hard to bet against the Sharks, but here it goes, i've done it!

Thats all for now, more later if something breaks, and make sure to check out and it's forums for all the latest.

Atlanta Fires Hartley

I've always felt Bob was one of the better coaches over the past ten years, and I don't expect him to be without a job for too long. GM Don Waddell will take over the coaching duties on an interm basis.

Site Updated

Thanks for all your patience as the site was without updates for the last week. As our forum readers know, I was in hospital for the better part of last week and was released yesterday. Nothing serious, but a throat infection that kept me down none the less. The main page, as well as the betting zone and rumours pages have been updated, so go check them out.

Busy busy right now, hoping to get some moer updates done later.

Still looking for a fantasy writer, as well as someone to do our power rankings. If interested please send me an email at

Thanks, enjoy your Tuesday.

Great Night For Hockey!

14 games tonight, it could barely get any better. Here are few must watch games for tonight.

Montreal @ Toronto: Montreal looks to win their second straight, while Toronto looks to capture their first win of the season. It's going to be a great game. Huet vs. Toskala seems likely at this point. Can't wait for this one. 4-2 Toronto takes it.

Buffalo @ NYI: After last night, both these teams must be ready for rematch. Both teams defensively were not good, but their offenses were running on full. Buffalo should re-bound from a shaky start, and take this one 4-1.

NYR @ Ottawa: As far as I'm concerned, two of the three best teams in the East. Both teams have yet to lose, so something has to give. I'm going to take NYR in this one, 3-2.

Anaheim @ Pittsburgh: The Ducks have struggled out of the gate, while Pittsburgh is coming off an opening night loss. I expect Pittsburgh to get in the win column tonight, and Anaheim continue to struggle. 5-2 Pittsburgh takes it.

Vancouver @ Calgary: Can you say goaltending matchup? What a great game this should be. I'm going to go with Vancouver, even though my gut says Calgary. 2-1 Vancouver takes it.

Centre Ice is on free preview on both Bell Expressview and Rogers Digital Cable. Take advantage of it!

Heatley Inks Extension

6 Years, something around 46.5 million. Final numbers coming soon. Great move for Ottawa, keeping Heatley at under 8 million. His price would have only went up during the season...

1.5 hours till first puck drop of the night, who's excited?

Raycroft vs. Gerber

It's the battle of the supposed backups tonight in Toronto as Andrew Raycroft will start against Martin Gerber in the game of the night. Both teams have a lot to prove this season, as do both of these goalies. It's going to be a great game, I can't wait!

Game Predictions Return

Hockeyleaks' favourite game is back for another season, so make sure to drop by the Game Predictions section and make your picks!! It's fun, and it's free!

Tomorrow the NHL regular season kicks into full gear, with four games. I'd rather more, but I can still deal. Toronto and Ottawa should be a good battle, while I'm looking forward to seeing the new look Avalanche play as well.
