Over at Yahoo! Sports, every player and many former players have profiles.  Each player has a number and that number is part of the link to their profile.  For example, the link to Wayne Gretzky’s profile is http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/players/1.  How obvious.

I’m bored at work so I have been putting in random numbers and searching for specific players.  Here’s a few:

  • Marc Messier is #10
  • Mario Lemieux is #66
  • Jaromir Jagr is #35
  • Mike Richter is #433
  • There are 3998 player profiles with the 3998th player being Chris Stewart, the 18th overall pick of the 2006 Draft.

After putting in a bunch of random numbers I decided to pick a specific number.  Being Halloween, what better number than 666?  Of all of the players in the NHL, who could Yahoo! have given the number 666?  None other than Miroslav Satan.

While it seems that some players were given numbers for a reason (Gretzky, Lemieux), is it possible that this is just a coincidense?  I hope not.

I was over at Puck Daddy where they are having a live chat.  I posed a question about something I read about last night while watching the Mets lose their 7 run lead.  It turns out that there are rumors swirling around that the Rangers are shopping Scott Gomez in order to make room for Mats Sundin under the cap.  I know.  Ridiculous.  I asked my question which was then answered by Spector and David Pagnotta.  Greg Wyshynski was just there for moral support I guess.

Wyshynski –  Bingo. Back to Gomez, because Dave didn’t get a crack earlier:

[Comment From Eric from 5-hole.com]
Does it even make sense for the Rangers to move Gomez and Prucha just to make room for Sundin? Prucha proved in his first season that, when given the ice time, he can produce and Gomez is a great center that has more years left in him than Sundin.
1:15
Spector –  Seriously, though, Dave’s right about the vacation
1:15
Wyshynski –  Pags, what do you make of the Gomez stuff?
1:15
Spector –  THE RANGERS AREN’T MOVING GOMEZ!!!!!
1:16
DavidPagnotta –  I’d be quite surprised if they move Gomez… and talking to a few people around the league, it’s not a real option for the Rangers.
1:16
Wyshynski –  Ow, angry Spector emoticon! The man is serious!!!!!!
1:16
Spector –

I think Spector’s gassy…somebody burp him…
1:16
DavidPagnotta –  haha, I feel your pain Spec
1:16
DavidPagnotta –  Gomez is sticking it out in the Big Apple.

About 15 minutes before I got to the party, and the reason Spector put on his angry face when I asked, Wyshynski and Spector answered my question.

[Comment From Neil]
So is Gomez being shopped around or not?
1:02
Spector –  Hi, Neil, no, Gomez isn’t being shopped
1:02
Wyshynski –  NO!
1:02
Wyshynski –  Look, like we said this morning: He’s in the second year of a SEVEN YEAR DEAL, and we haven’t even seen him play with a winger that he can mesh with yet.
1:03
[Comment From Neil]
and so now what is the likliehood of Sundin winding up w/ the Rangers?
1:03
Spector –  Of course now that there’s no truth to the Gomez rumors, expect the “Drury to be dealt to Vancouver” rumors to start anytime now.
1:03
Spector –  Unless the Rangers dump considerable salary Sundin won’t be a Blueshirt. Simple as that.
1:03
Wyshynski –  Ha! Indeed. And I thonk Drury’s NTC is even more water-tight than Gomez’s.
1:03
Spector –  It sure is!
1:03
Wyshynski –  think, not thonk. Thonk is not a word.

[Comment From Guest]
Why would they trade Gomez to make room for a player that most likely wont last 2 more seaons?
1:04
Spector –  You just answered your own question.
1:04
Wyshynski –  Well, the theory is that the Rangers want to drop salary.
1:04
Spector –  It won’t be Drury or Gomez.
1:04
Wyshynski –  Because, you know, the Rangers always want to drop salary

And here’s some Bruins talk from the trio of bloggers for my Bruins fan friend:

Wyshynski –  This one is just begging for us to address:

[Comment From Super Dave West]
Who are you prognosticators, and why is there no Bruins talk here?
1:16
Spector –  Because there’s little to write about regarding the B’s
1:16
DavidPagnotta –  Here’s some Bruins talk… their practice facility is in the middle of NO WHERE!
1:17
Spector –  No news is good new ,right?
1:17
DavidPagnotta –  Took me forever to find that place
1:17
Wyshynski –  There’s no Bruins talk because they’re capped out and their coach is zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz … oh, sorry. Nodded off.
