Line Of The Day

How true Mike…

from John McGourty at NHL.com,

“Under the salary cap, you don’t have extra guys anymore,” Babcock said. “The ‘depth’ of the organization is health. Scotty Bowman always had an extra line sitting in the press box. Those days are gone. As soon as you’re not healthy, you’re depth is gone. That’s why minor-league development of prospects is more important than ever. When they get brought up, they have to be ready to play your system.”

(*Important to note that when Hasek spoke to eNHL.cz’s camera man, he was insistent that he does not ride during the NHL season.)

Wings Players Would Enjoy Playing Europe

From Dave Waddell at Can West,

Many of the Detroit Red Wings wouldn’t mind a little European holiday to start the season, but not all are convinced the NHL is a viable long-term product on the continent.

Certainly, with their heavy Euro content, the Wings would be a very popular draw to open the 2008-09 regular season in Europe, as Los Angeles and Anaheim did this season.

“I think it would be exciting for any team to go and play overseas, whether it’s London, Prague or Stockholm or wherever,” Wings captain Nick Lidstrom said.

Line Of The Day

from the Montreal Gazette,

“I played with Stevie Yzerman my rookie season and I scored five goals in my first 12 games,” Dandenault said. “I was a scratch a lot of the time that year, but when I started the season I was with him. It was amazing. But I ended up the season with five goals because I went to the fourth line. I started the season with Yzerman and finished with Stu Grimson.”

Nick The Machine

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

The great ones make a hard game look ridiculously easy.

Gretzky. Orr. Mario. Howe. Beliveau. Lafleur.

You can add Nick Lidstrom to that pantheon.

Since Orr retired 31 years ago because his knees gave out, Lidstrom and Ray Bourque have been hockey’s pre-eminent defencemen. Paul Coffey, who had 1500 points, was close. So was Denis Potvin, a mean customer. Chris Chelios, Larry Robinson and Scott Niedermayer have a following as game-managers. But, Lidstrom, who’s remarkably only missed 22 of 1,201 total games (some forced to rest him for the playoffs) is, in his 16th NHL season, a machine.
