from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
- Hopefully Landeskog makes a full recovery. Hate to see anyone, much less a 20-year-old with so much in front of him, run into what could be concussion trouble. Brendan Shanahan is taking some heat for not suspending Brad Stuart for the hit, but Stuart did not target the head, didn't leave his feet before impact, kept his elbow tucked in and certainly did not intend to injure. The outcome, however, is potentially awful. No one wants to see that.
- I asked GMGM (as local fans call him) about one executive's assessment of Ovechkin, that "he's too big." Understand: this is not to say he is out of shape, just that he is too bulked-up. In the 2005 NHL Guide and Record Book, the Great Eight is listed at 212 pounds. Now: 230 on NHL.com. McPhee disagreed, saying, "His ideal weight is 227 or 228. He's at about 231 or 232." And before anyone jumps on that, he doesn't feel that difference is a big deal, either, because it's close to where Ovechkin should be.
