I updated all the WHL rosters on Talk-Sports.
We just updated the WHL rosters for the 2008-09 season.
CP: Canada captured a silver medal in the women's 3,000-metre short-track speedskating relay at the Winter Olympics on Wednesday. Alanna Kraus of Abbotsford, B.C., Anouk Leblanc-Boucher of Prevost, Que., Kalyna Roberge of St-Etienne-de-Lauzon, Que., and Tania Vincent of Laval, Que., finished in four minutes 17.336 seconds.
Jeff Buttle: Oh, my God, it's nuts. This is huge for me.
Randy: And huge for Canada, as Canada won bronze in the premier Winter Olympic event.
CP: Anouk Leblanc-Boucher of Prevost, Que., avoided an illegal move by a Chinese skater to capture a bronze medal in the women's 500-metre short-track speedskating event at the Winter Olympics on Wednesday.
Randy: Anouk's medal may get bumped to a silver and Kalyna Roberge of Quebec City to a bronze, as it appears the silver medalist lifted her skate at the finish line, which should be a disqualification.
TMC: The Japanese Olympic Committee is telling athletes competing at the Turin Winter Olympic Games not to open web logs because the Olympic Charter bans athletes' journalist activities when the games are on, and violators will be disqualified.
CBC: Favoured to win Sunday's 3,000 metres, Canadian speed skater Cindy Klassen tired down the stretch and settled for the bronze medal in her first of five events at the Torino Olympic Winter Games.
Randy: Cindy won bronze in 2002 and is likely to win more this Olympic. What a national treasure she is.
CP: Freestyle skier Jennifer Heil kicked off Canada's march to the medal podium at the 2006 Winter Olympics, winning the women's moguls Saturday.
Phil Coffey: Saying the Toronto Maple Leafs are the most scrutinized team in the NHL is like saying it gets cold in the winter outside the Air Canada Centre. [cut] If either Lindros or Allison can bounce back and not make Sundin a one-man show, then the Leafs will be in the thick of things in the Eastern Conference. If both players rebound, then ...
Randy: Phil didn't finish that last sentence with anything spectacular. Let me finish it for him. If both players rebound, then the Leafs are the best team in the NHL.
