Health Update On Patrick Eaves

via the Anaheim Ducks,

Ducks right wing Patrick Eaves is currently resting comfortably in stable condition at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach after being diagnosed with what is suspected to be Guillain-Barré syndrome, a disorder in which the body's immune system attacks the peripheral nervous system. After feeling symptoms of weakness, Eaves visited specialists Dr. Robert Watkins Sr. and Dr. Danny Benmoshe last week, which later led to Eaves being diagnosed and admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the hospital. Eaves’ condition stabilized over the weekend and he was transferred out of the ICU. 

Eaves is expected to make a full recovery.

Avalanche fans and NHL gamblers robbed by review blunder

By Rik,

When coach’s challenges were introduced to the NHL prior to the 2015/16 season, the thinking was that it would reduce the chances of teams, fans and those betting on matches having their game ruined by a bad decision. But as it turned out, the opposite proved to be the case in the Colorado Avalanche’s narrow loss to the St Louis Blues last Friday.

The NHL has admitted that they made a mistake in disallowing Mikko Rantanen’s goal in the dying minutes, following a coach’s challenge for offside. It was an error that had a direct impact on the result of the game, and will have repercussions that will rumble on and on.

Afternoon Line- Adrian Dater On Matt Duchene

Here’s what I think will happen: I think if the Avs continue to muddle along with a mediocre record, Duchene will be traded somewhat soon. I would bet by Christmas. If they have a good record, a playoff record, then I think you’ll see them wait closer to the trade deadline and thereby get the most of his playing talent until then. Either way, I think Duchene is gone by the deadline at the latest.

Back Surgery For Zach Parise Is Being Contemplated

from Michael Russo of The Athletic,

After exhausting all options in an attempt to overcome a debilitating injury and make his season debut, Wild veteran Zach Parise is contemplating back surgery that would sideline the winger up to two months, three well-place sources told The Athletic.

Parise was diagnosed with a herniated disk during the 2015-16 season and missed the entire 2016 playoffs due to an injury that caused numbness and a lack of strength in one of his legs.

The Situation In Montreal

via Jack Todd at the Montreal Gazette,

The sniper isn’t scoring, the all-world goalie can’t stop a puck, the defence is a mess.

Meanwhile, Mikhail Sergachev is heating up in Tampa Bay, Andrei Markov has four goals and 11 assists for Ak-Bars Kazan in the KHL and the one true bright spot in the Canadiens organization is undersized 19-year-old defenceman Victor Mete.

There comes a point when the tension around a team has reached critical mass — when the sheer weight of criticism aimed at a coach or a GM equals the square of the energy expended in hating the man times the speed of the team’s descent in the standings.

At that point, something has to give. But the individual making the decisions has to remain cool, calm and collected and avoid a Ron Corey disaster. The Canadiens have faced a brutal early schedule with a remade defence and a popgun offence. The worst thing the organization can do now is to panic and replace Bergevin with an inexperienced GM who is going to deal Price for prospects, plunging the team into another two decades in the wilderness.
