  • Jaromir Jagr loves the East, didn’t consider returning to KHL
    • Good to see Jagr wanting to stay in the Eastern Conference. Even better that the Rangers get to face Jagr and the Devils 5 times. Should be a good crop of games.
  • A look at team USA snubs
    • I think the fact that Dubinsky got snubbed was a surprise. He has played well for team USA in international competition when he is selected, but I feel in the end it was the right choice. Dubinsky while a solid forechecker, and a solid end zone defender, is not better than some of the choices made by Blysma and his staff.
  • Team Canada could have a goalie situation
    • While the Ryan Miller/Cory Schinder tandem should be in full effect for these games, Canada has a difficult task. Carey Price, Mike Smith, Roberto Luongo, Braden Holtby and Corey Crawford are all good goaltenders. If I had to choose, I’d go with Robbie Lou and Mike Smith. Crawford is a young goalie and will get his chance, same with Holtby, as for Carey Price, I just don’t see him handling pressure well, and at best will be the number 3 goaltender for Hockey Canada.
  • Canucks, Torts name  Mike Sullivan and Glen Gulutzan as head coach.
    • Sullivan gets to ruin the Canucks powerplay!
