Hello Canada, hockey fans in the United States, and Newfoundland.
Here’s a small dish of what’s been going on over the past 24 hours.
Octopus Thrower / Peter Fish – Danny DeKeyser Signs With The Detroit Red Wings – Edmonton comes up a little light in this sweepstakes, as prized college defenceman signs near his hometown.
The Canuck Way / Allen Tung – Vancouver Canucks May Not Get Full Value For Roberto Luongo Until Summer – No doubt Roberto Luongo will be the subject of a thousand trade scenarios between now and Wednesday’s trade deadline (cough, Toronto). With the goalie market as stagnant as it appears, there’s a good chance he doesn’t get moved at all, or at least until this summer.
Senshot / Jared Spurgeon – Zibanejad, Silfverberg, LehnerAmong Hockeys Future Top 50 Prospects – Three Swedes lead the playoff-bound Senators’ wave of the future.
Oilers Nation / Jonathan Willis – Man, Stockton’s Going to be the Toughest Team in the ECHL – Willis’ take on the Tobias Rieder / Kale Kessy trade from yesterday, complete with NHL equivalencies. It’s about what you expect.
Tend The Farm / Neal Livingston – ‘Nois Continued – What You Need – Neal previews this weekend’s AHL matchup between the OKC Barons and Peoria Rivermen with an Australian twist.
And just for kicks, here’s a CBC interview with Foster Hewitt from 1978.
Oilers, Canucks tonight.
