Quick Thoughts III

- There is a chance Chicago Forward Pat Kane could be facing strong armed robbery charges because he and his cousin assaulted the cab driver together. No matter the charge, the Kane duo are in some seriously hot water.

- According to, Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Justin Pogge may be heading to Anaheim for a draft pick. Rumors are that Brian Burke is making this move so he can sign unrestricted free agent, Joey MacDonald. Macdonald proved himself to be a pretty decent goalie after covering for injured Islander Rick DiPietro for most of the season.

- The Florida Panthers "31 Day Run of Fun" begins on Thursday on all major communication networks (Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter). Q&A with a majority of Panthers players and personnel and prizes given out every day. All you have to do is become a fan of the official Florida Panthers Facebook, Myspace, or Twitter page to enjoy the fun.

- Theo Fleury is attempting another NHL comeback. The troubled hockey player wants to try and play in the National Hockey League again after playing senior hockey last season. Look, I understand the passion for the game, but enough is enough. There is a reason he hasn't been in the league for years, and that is the fact that he was banned. So before he gets a chance to play for a team the NHLPA will have to lift that ban. Just stay on the senior league Theo, the NHL is too fast for you now.

- Former Florida Panthers goaltender Ed Belfour has been hired by the St.Louis Blues as a goalie consultant for their minor league club in Peoria. I wish Belfour nothing but good luck. He is a great guy and he should fit in to this role well.
