Afternoon Line- Pierre LeBrun On The Philadelphia Flyers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

The Flyers? Oh, my.

This is a team that's playing like it's afraid to make a mistake. No confidence....

It's a team that doesn't seem to have a set identity. That's frightening more than 20 games into the season.

They've already been reamed out by their GM Ron Hextall, they've had players-only meetings. What's next?

Likely a trade or two I suspect. I don't think Hextall can afford to wait much longer.

No Tanking In Arizona

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Craig Morgan of Fox Sports Arizona,

The Coyotes will not tank the 2014-15 season. Not going to happen. Not a chance.

"I don't think that's something I would ever accept under any circumstance," Maloney, the Coyotes GM, said. "Tanking is not in Tip's DNA, it's not in my DNA, it's not in ownership's DNA and it's not in the players' DNA.

"Just that idea destroys the whole credibility of an organization. We would all love a franchise player -- or two or three -- but that's not how you go about it."

The idea of tanking overtakes fans wherever you find teams withering while franchise players are ripening on the amateur vines. But you'd be hard pressed to find an instance (cough, 2011 Indianapolis Colts, cough) where the team actually played along with this approach.

"Players are paid to win, coaches are paid to win and I'm paid to win," Maloney said. "If we tanked in order to rebuild, I wouldn't be around for the rebuild."

Dreger: Alfredsson will retire as a Senator

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

I don't plan on covering the lead-up to Daniel Alfredsson's retirement in Ottawa in significant detail. He was a Red Wing for a year (though he still lives in Metro Detroit, and I really hope that the Red Wings beat the Sens to the hire-the-guy punch), this will most certainly Sens fans' "moment," so I don't want to step on toes, and mostly, the Red Wings play four times between today and next Thursday's official announcement in Ottawa--with the Wings hosting Dallas on that date--so I've got a day job to worry about as well.

If you are interested in the circumstances of Alfredsson's "discovery" by the Senators, however, TSN's Darren Dreger reveals said details in his latest Dreger Report, which states that Alfredsson really is going to retire "as a Senator":

Game-day post, Red Wings vs. Devils: Mrazek starts, Devils dealing with ‘game-time decisions’

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Updated 6x at 2:42 PM: This post actually takes 60-90 minutes of watching and waiting and at first (while looking all over the damn place for Wings stories), I was very relieved that there was a pretty solid assumption as to what the New Jersey Devils' lineup will look like against the Detroit Red Wings this evening (7 PM EST on FSD/MSG Plus/97.1 FM), because the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti and the Newark Star-Ledger's Rich Chere reported the same thing:

Optional morning skate for Devils today.

Ditto for NHL.com's Mike G. Morreale:

Devils have an optional skate this morning at The Rock in preparation for the Red Wings at 7pm ET.

But was it really optional? Of course not! Was the lineup that shook out of said skate consistent? Of course not!

Per Gulitti...
