Blue Jackets rookie forward Nikita Filatov, who has struggled to remain in coach Ken Hitch*****’s lineup, might be headed back to Russia, perhaps as soon as this week, according to sources within and beyond the NHL.

Looking for an early Christmas present for your favourite Maple Leaf?
How about a game night alarm clock with the snooze button ripped out.
Mike Komisarek will be out the next three weeks with a small quadricep tear. He injured it in the game against Detroit with an attempted hip check against Todd Bertuzzi and left the game for the rest of the third period.
After not practicing since the game on Saturday for some reason just 3 days later Komisarek and Ron Wilson decided that he would play(a gametime decision). So he played 2 and a half minutes and aggrevated the injury even worse. Also an argument can be made about playing two and a half periods with 5 defense creates goals and it did.
This is what we should do first

The Maple Leafs GM has to wait until January before he can hold talks on a contract extension for rookie goalie Jonas “The Monster” Gustavsson, but he might want to get the framework in place, because if Burke is going to live by the sword, he had better be prepared to die by it, too.

Following comments from Scott Niedermayer that he could be traded back to the Devils, Ducks GM Bob Murray told the Los Angeles Times that will not happen.
Two surprising names have surfaced to fuel the possibility of NHL trades. Anaheim defenceman Scott Niedermayer is one, and sophomore Dallas forward Fabian Brunnstrom the other.
Media and internet rumors circulating out of the general managers’ meetings in Toronto earlier this week intimated that the Anaheim Ducks are seeking trade offers for $6 million goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere, now a back-up to Jonas Hiller.
The Flyers have expressed interest in bringing former captain Peter Forsberg back to Philadelphia, but it appears the 36-year-old Swede is not quite ready to commit himself to an NHL comeback.
At least not yet.
