New & Notes. Septmber 30th 2009

Here are some stories that are making news this cold Wednesday morning.
  • Mats Sundin, arguably the greatest Swedish hockey player of all time, has retired. Sundin was universally hated in the city of Montreal when he first led the Toronto Maple Leafs, and then decided not to sign here once he became a free agent. Love him or hate him, it's tough to ignore the stats. 564 Goals and 1349 points in 1346 games with the Nordiques, Maple Leafs and Canucks. Funny that he played his entire career in Canada while some great Canadians like Steve Yzerman, Mario Lemieux and Brendan Shannahan never played a game for a team north of the border.
  • Cody Hodgson, who was supposed to challenge for a spot on the Canucks 2nd line, has been sent down to the Brampton Battalion of the OHL. Although he is disappointed, he should look foawrd to the 2010 World Junior Championships, where he along with other top talents like Nazem Kadri and Brayden Schenn, should demolish the competition.
  • A bunch of signing were made yesterday as Maxim Afinegenov agreed to terms with the Thrashers, Martin Skoula inked a deal with Pittsburgh, and former Hab Robert Lang will sign in Phoenix pending a physical.'s all for now folks!
God, does no one realize Porky Pig should see a speech therapist...
