The Montreal Canadiens and Phoenix Coyotes made a trade that may just be the most over discussed trade of fourth line talent and AHL players of they year. Stay tuned, Columbus and Ottawa could trade guys off their second line.
Former Boston Bruins Joe Thornton and Hal Gill (@Skillsy75) who broke into the NHL the same year each reached their 1000th game. Joe Thornton had contemplated retirement due to injury, and many speculated that with the elimination of licit obstruction Hal Gill would be rendered useless in the post lockout NHL. Gill was a key piece in the Penguins Cup win, Thornton has been the games best passer for the last decade, and is a point per game producer.
James Reimer the current anointed savior of the Toronto Maple Leafs left a game the other day after Brian Gionta made contact with him and is expected to miss at least a came.Henrik Lundqvist left a game due to what was called skate induced foot pain.The goalie guild is no doubt proud.
The Columbus Blue Jackets can’t hold a lead or buy a win. Something tells me there may be a correlation.
The once and future King who has taken three years to get to the NHL after his draft, will take the ice against his big brother when Brayden and Luke Schenn square off. The Flyers and Leafs will be a matchup of he most changed roster of the summer and the most over achieving team of the fall.
Jonathan Quick had three Ok games in a row for the LA Kings.
The Edmonton Oilers either have a scoring problem, or not enough forwards named Ryan.
Congrats to Zach Hamill (@ZHamill9) on leading the Providence Bruins in scoring.
Anyone who would like to contribute to getting goal for Jaromir Jagr or faceoff wins for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins please contact their respective coaches.
Eric Staal of the Carolina Hurricanes is sporting a 42% faceoff win percentage, has just one assist through eight games, and of the 638 skaters to take the ice this season he was the worst plus-minus and -10, which is twice his teams -5. Karma?
