Say your prayers, folks, for Ryan O’Reilly. The Avalanche center crashed into the boards a few minutes ago, his head and neck going awkwardly into the boards after trying to play a puck against Minnesota’s Matt Cullen on a Wild power play.

He is being wheeled off on a stretcher, his body immobilized. He did not move any limbs or give any thumbs up or anything as he was being carried off.

Let’s just hope for the best. More details as they emerge.

It’s Not The Canadian Way

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

That brings us to the Ottawa Senators and the Calgary Flames, the latest two Canadian clubs faced with the possible option of tearing the whole kit-and-kaboodle to the ground and starting over. Like the Maple Leafs before them at the end of the Mats Sundin era, the Sens and Flames, who played in Ottawa on Friday before the Flames moved on to face the Leafs Saturday, seem to be stubbornly rejecting the notion that their chances of winning with their existing core of talent have evaporated.

Were they U.S.-based clubs with deteriorating fan bases, the choice to start down the path of deliberately losing would be easier. In most markets, it’s feast or famine with the fans. With far less media scrutiny, who’s going to nitpick or analyze what you’re doing?

But in Ottawa and Calgary, there are demanding fan bases to try and please, and significant numbers of media members watching their every step. Like Edmonton, these are also teams that have been to the Stanley Cup final in the past decade, which means there are fans and believers who think that just maybe a tweak here or there might do it.

Afternoon Line, Part 2

“In the end, it’s all about winning.  That’s probably why I signed a 12-year deal here. I could have gone somewhere else where maybe I had a little more ice time, a little more spotlight. But this is where I want to be. I want to be here with a lot of good players.”

-Henrik Zetterberg of the Detroit Red Wings.  Read much more on ‘Z’ from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of Yahoo.

Stamkos Has Been Playing Hurt

from Damian Cristodero of Lightning Strikes,

“We never said it but he was injured,” Boucher said.

Well, that sparked all kinds of other questions.

What is the injury?

“Some parts of the body injury,” Boucher said. “It’s a lot better but it was really annoying for a while.”

Did the injury coincide with his scoring drought?


Stamkos, second in the league with 31 goals, describe whatever his injury is or was as “nothing major, nothing that’s going to keep me from playing a game. Honestly, it’s the bumps and bruises I go through every year.”

added 4:35pm,

TORONTO (January 14, 2011) – Nashville Predators defenseman Shane O’Brien has been suspended for two games and will forfeit $39,024.40 in salary for a high-sticking incident against Stephen Weiss of the Florida Panthers in NHL game #650, January 13, the National Hockey League announced today.

O’Brien, who was suspended for one game on November 3, 2009, is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.  Accordingly, he forfeits his salary based on the number of games in the season (82), rather than the number of days (186).  The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

      O’Brien will miss both of Nashville’s weekend games—a home and home series with the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday and Sunday
