via Sportsnet,

The Calgary Flames will be without the services of veteran defenceman Bryan Marchmant after an MRI revealed severed damage to Marchment's left knee. Sportsnet has learned Marchment's MRI revealed a torn ACL and MCL, leaving Marchment to contemplate season-ending surgery. If the Flames and Marchment decide to avoid the knife and try to go the rehab route, there exists a slight chance Marchment may try to play again this season -- without the ACL ligament. The decision should be made within the next 48 hrs.

Yorio To The Rescue

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kara Yorio of the Sporting News,

As for Kovalchuk, he showed a little personality. He gave a Thrashers-Penguins game a little life. He put another little rivalry into the game. He showed a little passion and a lot of talent. Let it go, folks. Sidney Crosby will survive the gesture and let's hope Kovalchuk is allowed -- with two arms intact -- to show a his personality and his skills for seasons to come.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from NHL.com,

Some traditional NHL powers, like the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues, have struggled to adjust to the new business models of the League. The Detroit Red Wings, however, have weathered the winds of change beautifully. "Any time your team's gone from $80 million to $40 million, they cut (the payroll) in half. We didn't cut our team in half, obviously," Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "So that's been real positive."

Primeau Update

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philadelphia Inquirer,

No one knows when or if Primeau will play again this season. He is wearing a tinted visor on the ice to filter out bright light and reduce the spinning sensation he sometimes feels. He still is experiencing some concussion symptoms. "The spinning sensation that I was having, it's subsiding and doing a lot better," he said. "It's really a visual thing when I start handling a puck. Things move quicker in front of me that I can't concentrate on, and that is when I get the spinning, and it aggravates that sensation."
