Here’s a rundown of the original content here at PHR over the last seven days.
It has now been a full year since the Senators surprisingly acquired center Matt Duchene in a three-way swap that has worked out well for the other two teams involved (Colorado and Nashville) but not Ottawa. Zach examined what needs to happen for the Sens to get the best they can out of this trade and why a decision on whichever route they choose to go happens as soon as possible.
Gavin held his weekly Thursday live chat. Topics discussed included Evgeni Malkin’s hit on T.J. Oshie (that did not draw supplemental discipline), Randy Carlyle’s future in Anaheim, Max Domi’s surprising start in Montreal, Buffalo’s Rasmus Ristolainen, Arizona’s start to the season, and more.
We’re getting closer to the conclusion of our 2006 redraft series. The Stars are up with the 27th selection and will undoubtedly wind up with a more productive player than their original selection who played just a handful of games. Who should they take? Cast your vote here.
I took questions about Joel Quenneville’s future, potential trade targets for the Bruins, the ongoing William Nylander contract squabble, plus whether Vancouver’s strong start is a sign of things to come in our latest mailbag.
It’s Hall of Fame weekend and with that in mind, Zach took a look at center Eric Staal’s case. The veteran tallied his 400th career goal recently and will probably reach the 1,000 point mark sometime next season. Those numbers would put him ahead of quite a few notable players that have already been enshrined and he is young enough that he’ll add to them in the years to come. Is that enough to make him worthy of the honor? Weigh in with your opinion here.
