Avs Will Make The Playoffs

from the Canon City Daily Record,

Hated arch-rival Detroit could also land in that top spot and wouldn’t that be sweet — an Avs sweep to finish Detroit off in the first round….
The Avs have eight games left in the regular season— with six against division rivals.
It may take Colorado until the last game of the regular season (against Calgary), but they will make it into the playoffs and keep the streak alive of having never missed the playoffs since moving to Denver.

Dealing With MS

from the National Post,

“Are you OK, hon,” she asks, gently, the words delivered with a sweetness that show she has never stopped loving the man in front of her.
“It is so hard for me to express,” she says. “They tell you there is no such thing as a soulmate, but Dave is mine. I knew right off the bat that we would get married. “He is such a kind man.”
Dave Balon’s clear blue eyes shift toward the sound of his wife’s voice and lock on to her loving gaze. “It’s been a long time for us, eh, honey?” Gwen says. “Yeah,” he whispers.
Balon used to talk in torrents. Words would pour out of his mouth so fast, and so softly uttered, that the hockey writers who hung around the dressing rooms in New York, Montreal, Minnesota and, at the sad end of his 13-year National Hockey League career, Vancouver, would scribble madly or risk missing what Balon had to say.

Chicago Waiting On Handzus

from the Daily Herald,

Those fans expecting the Hawks to sign a top unrestricted free-agent center such as Scott Gomez, Daniel Briere or Chris Drury might be disappointed to learn that Handzus is the guy Savard and general manager Dale Tallon envision skating with Havlat come training camp.
The Hawks have offered Handzus a contract that the injured center is in no hurry to sign. Tallon said he has been promised an answer one way or another by Handzus and his agent by the end of April.
There has been speculation that Handzus wants a salary of $4 million a year, which is almost double what he made while missing most of this season with a torn ACL in his knee.

Zetterberg’s Back Will Be The Concern

from the Detroit News,

Henrik Zetterberg expects to be ready for the playoffs—but he’s realistic.
With any back injury, it’s a bit of a guessing game.
“If it’s the same progress as it’s been the last week, I’ll be playing,” Zetterberg said. “But you never know with the back. A little tweak, or something, and you’re right back at the beginning.”

Robidas Feeling Tired After Concussion

from the Dallas Morning News,

Stephane Robidas’ recovery from a concussion he suffered last week has been slowed, and he did not skate Thursday or Friday.
“He feels all right, but he’s just tired,” Stars coach Dave Tippett said. “There’s no headache, but he’s just sleeping a lot, and that’s part of a by-product of the healing….”
“You don’t want to take any chances with your head, because I am going to get hit again,” Robidas said. “I may not get hit in the face in a fight, but the way I play, I will either hit someone or take a big hit. That’s just the way it is. And when I do that, I want to make sure I don’t have another relapse. They say the next concussion will come much easier, so you have to be careful. You have to make sure you are healthy.”

Heatley Shooting For 50

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

Dany Heatley would love to complete another 50-goal season.
But he’s not making any guarantees….
To repeat the nifty 50 feat, Heatley will have to go on a goal-a-game pace in the club’s final seven regular-season outings, starting tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning at the St. Petes Times-Forum.
“It’s going to be tough,” Heatley said yesterday. “I try not to think about it too much. I’ll just try to shoot as often as I can. Usually when I shoot a lot, I score some goals.”
