You’ll just have to see the video of the amazing saves Dallas Stars goalie Braden Holtby made against Carolina. We explored the Pittsburgh Penguins ability and plausibility to hit the NHL trade market for Jake DeBrusk or troubled Evander Kane. The Montreal Canadiens are GM shopping, but the fire sale might begin before then. Patrick Roy wants the Montreal GM gig. The Boston Bruins are making all kinds of news, and Connor McDavid reflected how Sidney Crosby influenced his career.
Let’s get some news out of the way. LA Kings forward Brendan Lemieux got five games for biting Brady Tkachuk. Brad Marchand got three games for a slew foot penalty, The New Jersey Devils signed Jack Hughes to an eight-year, $64 million contract, and Marchand headlines with his words, too.
Pittsburgh Hockey Now: While teams line up for DeBrusk on the NHL trade market, Evander Kane must prove he can play well with others. Should the Pittsburgh Penguins call about either?
On Tuesday, Dominik Simon skated at practice, a day after leaving the shootout loss to the Calgary Flames, after a slap shot hit in the head area.
NHL Trade chatter, News, National Hockey Now
Colorado: Patrick Roy is openly lobbying for the Montreal Canadiens GM job, though his argument is a bit backhanded.
Boston: First, Brad Marchand revealed what he said to Artemi Panarin that made Panarin throw his glove across the benches at Marchand. And Marchand ripped the league over criticism.
NHL trade chatter–Jimmy Murphy did some digging. Sources confirmed some teams interested Jake DeBrusk, including Seattle Kraken and as many as seven more.
Here’s the most surprising one–Bruins President Cam Neely didn’t spare the rod or spoil the child when he talked about DeBrusk between periods on Tuesday night. Neely gave a shoot interview on his player.
Our boys in Boston were BUSY.
Calgary: Jake Debrusk would be a good fit in Calgary? Are the Flames interested? Steve Macfarlane reports…
Montreal Gazette: What comes next in Montreal? Jeff Gorton is GM shopping–but which players will avoid the rebuild and punch their NHL trade ticket?
Sportsnet Video: Wednesday night, Connor McDavid talked about how influential Sidney Crosby was in his career.
It’s still a big deal, Crosby v. McDavid, but it doesn’t get my motor going like Gretzky v. Lemieux or Crosby v. Ovechkin from a decade ago. Am I wrong?
Vegas: Can Keegan Kolesar replace the Sheriff Ryan Reaves as the Vegas Golden Knights tough guy?
