Kadri assigned to Marlies and Connolly is inching closer to return. Told he’s doubtful for tomorrow, but could play after that.
He left the ice exhausted (BOOOOO!) and walked down the hall to the dressing room (BOOOOO!) where Roberto Luongo slumped joylessly into his stall (BOOOOO!) and slowly removed his goaltending equipment (BOOOOO!) while reporters surveyed him like undertakers.
So, Roberto, how does it feel to get booed?
The spotlight is on the Columbus Blue Jackets these days.
Given their poor start, the expectations that came with their ballooning payroll heading into this offseason and the Jeff Carter injury, the team has had trade talks with other teams.
But, as of Tuesday, there was nothing imminent on the trade front, a source told ESPN.com. The team is so banged up right now, it doesn’t have the bodies available to make a trade just for the sake of it. Carter is the biggest of the injuries; he is listed as week to week with a fractured foot and the team put him on IR on Tuesday.
Not suggesting Feaster is shopping Bourque, but his name is out there and teams are interested.
There continues to be a lot of Kyle Turris trade rumors surfacing, including some that say teams have made “significant” offers to the Phoenix Coyotes; all of which is apparently news to Phoenix GM Dave Maloney, who continues to be adamant that the Coyotes are not trading the restricted free agent who hasn’t come to terms on a new deal, and that if he plays anywhere in the NHL this season, it will be Phoenix or bust. If Turris isn’t signed by Dec. 1st, he’s not eligible to play in the NHL this season.
