OTTAWA SUN: In case you’re still wondering, Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson is not for sale.

When will the Canucks replace the Sedins?

When will the Canucks replace the Sedins?

VANCOUVER PROVINCE: Tony Gallagher looks ahead to the eventual day when the Canucks must replace the Sedin Twins. Don’t look for it to happen this year.

WINNIPEG SUN: Jets coach Claude Noel calls upon defenseman Dustin Byfuglien to be more consistent.

THE GLOBE AND MAIL: James Mirtle makes the case for the Maple Leafs to stick with James Reimer and Ben Scrivens. Give the kids a shot, I say!

EDMONTON JOURNAL: Jim Matheson reports the Oilers re-signing defenseman Ladislav Smid should happen before the trade deadline. Good to hear, the last player they should move is Smid.

MONTREAL GAZETTE: Brandon Prust is willing to pay a high physical price to help the Canadiens.

CALGARY SUN: Five burning questions for the Flames entering this week. At least the Iginla trade rumors are finally over.


  1. What a signing prust has been. Hope the Canadiens can stay healthy into the playoffs and get a couple guys back.

    • What a trade Ryder has been !!!!!!
      Imagine this guy has been a UFA twice now …..unreal …natural goal scorer who plays every aspect of the game …..

  2. Prust reminds me of Yvon Lambert, who played with the Habs during their dynasty years.
