Carter on the way to Columbus

A big trade day for Philly unloading Carter to Columbus and Richards to LA….if I am Richards, NOT BAD…LA is on the move and will be a force over the next few years…

The Philadelphia Flyers traded star center Jeff Carter Thursday to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Columbus GM Scott Howson talks about the trade that brought former Philadelphia Flyers star Jeff Carter to the Blue Jackets. 


The Flyers will receive forward Jakub Voracek, the eighth overall draft pick Friday night and a third-round draft pick from the Blue Jackets.  Later Thursday, the Flyers sent captain Mike Richards to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for prized prospect Brayden Schenn, winger Wayne Simmonds and an undisclosed draft pick. They also signed goalie Ilya Bryzgalov to a nine-year deal worth $51 million, a source told  “Well, I think probably what got the ball rolling for a lot of talk over the last 10 or 12 days was the acquisition of the negotiating rights for Ilya Bryzgalov,” Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said on a conference call of the trades. “That set the wheels in motion. Most teams probably viewed us as trying to sign Ilya — we did come to an agreement today — and I think that got the ball rolling. I know over the last few days, I spent a lot of time talking particularly with both Los Angeles and Columbus, and that culminated in what happened today.”  Carter, a first-round draft pick of Philadelphia in 2003, had 66 points (36 goals, 30 assists) in 80 regular-season games last season. The 26-year-old center has 181 goals and 162 assists in 461 career games.  His presence finally gives the Blue Jackets a top-line center to pair with their best player, Rick Nash.  “The Columbus Blue Jackets are very pleased and excited to acquire Jeff Carter,” GM Scott Howson said in a statement. “Jeff is a proven No. 1 center in the National Hockey League and we look forward to him having many productive seasons as a Blue Jacket.”  Carter’s 11-year, $58 million contract extension, which he signed in November, kicks in next season. He’s signed through the 2021-22 season at a $5.27 million yearly cap hit.  Voracek, a first-round pick in the 2007 draft, had 14 goals and 32 assists a year ago.

 Flyers On The Move

Flyers The Flyers made a big splash, trading Jeff Carter to Columbus and Mike Richards to L.A. before locking up goalie Ilya Bryzgalov.  The deal was a big hit in Columbus, which needed a headline-grabber to sell tickets. Fan websites and the team site lit up with enthusiastic responses after word of the trade came out.   Scottie Upshall, a current Blue Jacket and a former teammate of Carter’s with the Flyers, issued a warning on his Twitter account: “Blue Jackets just picked up a World Class player & teammate in Carter. With 61 (Nash) on his wing, look out!”   Carter’s agent, Rick Curran, told The Associated Press he was stunned by the news after being told last week that the Flyers were not discussing trading Carter to the Blue Jackets.

Story-Book Endings and Exciting New Beginnings…

The NHL season closed up Wednesday night with the Boston Bruins taking game 7 over the Vancouver Canucks… The city of Boston now prepares to be shown the cup in their celebratory parade this Saturday at 11:00…

Bruins ready to roll in parade

What a great way to end the 2011 season, with an organization who has been waiting 39 years to bring Lord Stanley’s Cup back home, taking the finals in an exciting game 7 matchup. The United States vs. Canada series made every game a battle not only on the ice but between the fans. Houses, clubs, bars, and city streets all over North America were packed with people given the rare opportunity to either cheer for their hometown team, or if they were not locals, to cheer for their country. The Bruins will bask in the glory of a hard fought championship for a couple days now, but will then soon join their other 29 competitors in the offseason training to gear up for another chance at lifting the best piece of hardware in sports.

On the note of next season, we have a very interesting draft class for the choosing of coaches and GM’s throughout the league. Unlike the last few years where only 2 or 3 skaters were realistic candidates for the number 1 overall spot, the 2011 draft gives the rebuilding Edmonton Oliers a “plate-full” of choices. Here are the names and breakdowns of the next possible skater to go down in history as another first overall pick.

Gabriel Landeskog (OHL)- Could bring the Oliers a great package of competitiveness, offensive talent, and the ability to dominate the play in tough areas. He projects as a 30/30 type player who has all the intangibles coaches and team’s love to have. The strong winger appeals to the toughness side that could use a boost in Edmonton.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (WHL)- Brings exceedingly good playmaking and sees the ice extremely well. He also possesses an underrated wrist shot that he gets off both quickly and accurately. A very good skater that is among the shiftiest players available in the draft, surprisingly lacks breakaway speed. He possesses a very high-end skill set that is also arguably the best in the entire draft. Defensively he is reliable and has become a dangerous takeaway artist capable of stripping the puck off the sticks of unsuspecting players and quickly counter-attacking. The crafty center could add another forward similar to the Hall and Eberle threats already acquired.

Adam Larsson (SEL)- The number 1 overall midterm ranking gives him a serious look for the top spot. His attractive skill-set translates well to the NHL. His size, puck moving ability, and solid positional play are all there, but he is faced with rebounding from his drop in points over the course of this year. The defensemen hopes to quickly become a player used in a top pair in the NHL.

Sean Couturier (QMJHL)- While he isn’t going to be a dominant offensive player, Couturier is a very capable offensive forward who has the size to create space for himself at the next level as well. He will need to work on his skating a bit to solidify himself as a two-way center with the increased pace of the NHL, but Couturier is a pretty safe pick for the Oliers if they are looking for a big presence on the ice over a unique goal scorer.

Jonathan Huberdeau (QMJHL)- The 17-year-old center was one of the most dangerous players in Major Junior hockey all season and has an explosive dynamic that few others in this class can match. A tall lanky forward could use some pro help bulking up, but his skills are appetizing for a team looking to be a threat in the future.

An exciting day it will be on June 24th as the league faces a day full of phone calls, strategy, and welcome jerseys for the lucky 30 players who will go in round 1. Another great season is sure to follow the story book ending of this year.
