Blog Hits

Blog Hits: Oilers nations is still in flux, Ohlund thinks his life is summed up by a Frank Sinatra song “The best is yet to come” and Spector tries to inject some reason into the insanity that is free agency day.

After an exciting day of free agency here is the word from the Blogs:

  • Cult of Hockey:  Talks about how people are reacting now that the team has (seemingly) been once again rejected by an NHL star?
  • mc79hockey:  Does not mince words about one of the teams in Alberta.  Makes an interesting comparison between Oilers and Flames.
  • KuklasKorner:  Gives us an update on the Heatley situation and how Oilers brass are arranging a sit-down.
  • In Lou We Trust:  Discusses the day of free agency from a Devil’s perspective and that not doing anything, while frustrating, might be the best action of the day.
  • Eyes on the Prize:  Laments the loss of Komisarek after many years spent developing him.
  • PuckUpdate:  Tells us what Glen Sather has learned from Donnie Walsh.
  • On Frozen Blog:  Is quite happy that they signed Knuble away from rival Philadelphia.
  • The Bruins Blog:  Apparently Jack Adams winner Claude Julien was a selling point to free agent Steve Begin.
  • Lightning Strikes: Gives us the conference call that Ohlund had with reporters, including this gem “My best years are ahead of me”.
  • Spector’s Hockey:  Talks about how general managers need to avoid the risk of “auction fever”, getting into bidding wars for players and signing them for far more than they’re worth.
  • From the Rink:  Provides a list of the top 100 free agents which shows you which players are still available.
  • Snapshots:  Ken Holland talks about losing Hossa, Kopecky and Conklin.
