Dan’s Daily: Cozens Criticizes Aston-Reese Hit, Eichel Trade Cost?



NHL trade Jack Eichel

The Buffalo Sabres are ground zero for the Daily this weekend. Rookie Dylan Cozens missed a week after Pittsburgh Penguins winger Zach Aston-Reese caught Cozens with a questionable hit last week. Jack Eichel trade talk is bubbling again, so what would the NHL trade market look like? And the Penguins updated Evgeni Malkin’s status.

Pittsburgh Hockey Now: The Penguins performance on Thursday night showed a glaring flaw, and an S.O.S. to GM Ron Hextall to hit the NHL trade market. 

After practice on Friday, head coach Mike Sullivan said Malkin was out week-to-week, and Jared McCann is ready to return. 

Buffalo News: “Unneccessary and dangerous.” Dylan Cozens will return to the Buffalo Sabres lineup this weekend. He still isn’t happy with Zach Aston-Reese’s hit last weekend. 

NHL Trade Talk…

Sportnet: The Jack Eichel trade talk is bubbling back to the surface. Elliotte Friedman discussed what an Eichel trade package would look like. 

TSN: Who is on the North Division trade block?

San Jose Hockey Now: Should the San Jose Sharks sit or trade Patrick Marleau?

And–it hasn’t happened yet…

Boston: The next two Bruins games were postponed after four players tested positive.

If politicians got the vaccine first, perhaps the public entertainers who have provided a valuable service to society can get the pokes ASAP. With 100 million Americans already receiving the vaccine, our country can spare 1000.

NYI: The Islanders dipped into the KHL to sign their prospect Anatolii Golyshev to a one-year deal.

Colorado: Get this, the Avs are getting a spark from their fourth line

Florida: The Florida Panthers are doing well — very well — in the hypothetical midseason NHL awards

Philly: Film Room–What went wrong? The Flyers gave up three third-period goals to the Islanders. 

Vegas: After a false positive test, William Karlsson did what great stories need–he scored a historic game-winning goal on Friday night.
