from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
- Hearing New Jersey, looking for forward help, is interested in Mike Cammalleri. Do the Devils have what Calgary wants to get this done? No first-rounder this year, so they probably wouldn't want to move a second-rounder, either. And teams are loathe to move their 2015 first-round picks (Connor McDavid).
- Since the NHL began tracking ice-time, the one-season record is Brian Leetch's 2,449 minutes 19 seconds in 1998-99, an average of 29:52 a night. Ryan Suter is eight seconds per game shy of that pace, with the added workload of an Olympics. (Can't imagine Dan Bylsma will keep Suter on the bench in Sochi.) From Christmas until Feb. 6, the Wild had only one set of back-to-back games. Easier to rest him. But there are five from Feb. 27 to March 27. Can he keep this up?
- One Glen Sather-era Oiler on what is happening between the Rangers and Ryan Callahan: "[Sather] is so competitive. He wants to win every trade, to win every signing. He grinds you. He tests you. I went through it. I'm not convinced they won't get something done." Things didn't look great with Henrik Lundqvist until a big face-to-face the night before he signed, either. Both sides compromised. We'll see.
more plus a look at injured players/Olympic participation...
