Kukla's Korner Hockey

Saturday Night Hockey Talk

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- An NHL front office executive on the John Scott hit on Loui Eriksson: "It made me sick to my stomach." About the Emery assault: "Same feeling." ... Eriksson missed his fifth straight game since the Scott hit, which is two more games than he has missed over the past five seasons. How impressive a player is the normally underrated Eriksson? In the five years prior to this one, he has scored 307 points. Kessel has 313 points over the same time period.

- Had this one backwards through the early season: When John Tortorella went to Vancouver and Alain Vigneault went to New York, I figured disaster for the Canucks and big improvements for the Rangers. It has been opposite so far. The Canucks players seem to love Tortorella. For now.

- Worth noting: Tyler Seguin has more points than anyone on his former team, the Boston Bruins.
