The David Perron Trade Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN,

The Edmonton Oilers and Columbus Blue Jackets, two of the worst teams in the league, are working together to make a trade happen to improve their fortunes.

TSN Hockey analyst Aaron Ward is reporting that Oilers winger David Perron and Blue Jackets centre Artem Anisimov are the players being discussed for a potential trade, but there could be more players involved.

TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger first reported over the weekend that the Oilers were looking to deal Perron and said general manager Craig MacTavish is looking for a top line centre in return for the 26-year-old. 

Perron has two goals and eight assists in 22 games this season with the Oilers, his second year with the team. The Sherbrooke, Quebec, native has two years left on his current contract.

The overnight report: Red Wings-Flyers set-up: Wings aim for 3-in-a-row vs. road-struggling Flyers

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Red Wings laid an egg when they dropped a 4-2 decision to the Philadelphia Flyers on October 25th, but--in theory--tonight's NBCSN-televised "rematch" (7:30 PM EST on FSD Plus/CSN Philly/NBCSN/97.1 FM) between an 8-9-and-3 Flyers team and the strong-on-home-ice 11-5-and-5 Wings should yield a strong opportunity for the Wings to extend their winning streak to three games for the first time this season (the Wings did go "unbeaten" in 3 via 2 wins and a shootout loss at the end of October).

In practice, the Wings are a team that tends to do a fine job of goofing up when "the odds are in their favor," and while the Flyers have lost 5 straight games, including a 1-0 shootout decision to the Islanders on Monday, Steve Mason stopped 46 shots in that effort, Jakub Voracek is always good against the Wings and is tied for the league lead in scoring...

And this is one of those, "The underdog is due" games that scares me (for lack of a better term).

The Flyers' scribes didn't cover Tuesday's practice (Michael Raffl gave an interview to the Flyers' website, but he's got a "lower-body injury"), and as NJ.com's Randy Miller noted, the Flyers theoretically might be preoccupied with this weekend's games...

The good, the political and the speculatory

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

I've thought about putting these articles in the overnight report--I was quite frankly not up to an evening entry as this whole physical endurance thing is affected by depression, and I'm still coming up for air as it were--but they don't belong in a Wings-Flyers spiel, not even a rambly one.

This is the best part of my job, reporting on the kind of things that remind us that the players who chase pucks for a living make their biggest impacts off the ice. The Red Wings' Community Relations Department posted several Instagram photos from the Wings' annual pre-Holiday Season visit to Children's Hospital on Tuesday evening...

Martin Hanzal’s elbow on Erik Johnson: is it a matter of player culpability?

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

One injury, two very differen takes. Again, via Pro Hockey Talk's Dhiren Mahibian, this time it's Arizona Coyotes forward Martin Hanzal hitting Colorado Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson, and the Coyotes' announcers are more critical of the hit than the Avs' announcers:

Does Johnson leaning down on the follow-through of his shot = "Well Martin Hanzal is so strong..." and an unintentional elbow, well, shit happens?

Garbutt knees Hall

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

During the Dallas Stars' 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers, as Yahoo Sports' Greg Wyshynski noted, Dallas Stars forward Ryan Garbutt...Oh hell, you know how this goes. Garbutt plus opposing player, this time Oilers forward Taylor Hall, equals knee-on-knee hit. Hall was okay, but still, this hit can be diagrammed with a s-u-s-p-e-n-s-i-o-n on the telestrator:

Blues lose Elliott to ‘lower-body injury’

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

Via Pro Hockey Talk's Dhiren Mahibian, the St. Louis Blues lost an incredibly important contributor when Brian Elliot suffered a "lower-body injury" on this hit by Senators forward Erik Condra (and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Tom Timmermann reports that the Blues are sticking with the "lower-body injury" line):


Ottawa won 3-2 in a shootout.

Sportsnet tells the story of Alexander Mogilny’s defection, realities of late-Soviet Tikhonov hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

Alexander Mogilny was one of the last (and only) Soviet-era players to defect from the USSR to play in the NHL (Sergei Fedorov, Mogilny and Pavel Bure were the young stars int he crown), and Sportsnet told his story. Former Buffalo Sabres GM Gerry Meehan narrates the tale, Sergei Fedorov makes several appearances in the 23-minute video, and thankfully, this feature was produced before Viktor Tikhonov's death, so it reminds us that Russian hockey has lost a legend--and a legendarily cruel dictator:
