For a lack of the Maple Leafs, there were some well-attended hockey games last night in Toronto. I was out at the Ryerson/Queen's game at the renovated Maple Leaf Gardens, while the Marlies were out in Hamilton, losing to the Bulldogs 4-1. (Here's a remarkably undetailed recap, and here's Steve Dangle's "Marlies Minute")
Tonight, there were several good NHL games on the cancelled schedule. This includes the Maple Leafs' first meeting with the Ottawa Senators. Elsewhere on the schedule, Winnipeg and Philadelphia, who played a couple of wildly high-scoring games last season were set to go. Detroit and Chicago is a fun Central Division rivalry, and the late HNiC game was Calgary and Colorado. At least the Avalanche are fun to watch.

Is November 2nd going to be the NHL's starting date?
Let me know and you could win an autographed Cam Atkinson rookie card or a John Carlson rookie card.

Remember when hockey was on the ice and actually played? I found some!
KHL action featuring a goal from Pavel Datsyuk that makes me rethink my entire existence, Ilya Kovalchuk is also nuts, Grabovski continues to put up numbers, and Yakupov's team falls.

Well, here we go. Roberto Luongo trade speculation has heated up again this week. I wrote a sarcastic post about James Reimer at UBC on Wednesday, but apparently this got people to actually start talking Luongo trade.
Damien Cox, who fills a role analogous to the middle segment of the human centipede, was able to "speculate" this morning enough to drop a fun tidbit: the Vancouver Canucks wanted Tyler Bozak, Matt Frattin, Jake Gardiner and a first round pick for Luongo at the draft.
At the draft, reports indicated Vancouver asked for centre Tyler Bozak, defenceman Jake Gardiner, a first round pick and winger Matt Frattin in exchange for the 33-year-old Luongo. The Leafs had no interest in paying that kind of price, largely because there is no significant market for the services of the veteran goaltender.
