Senators fans still adjusting to Daniel Alfredsson’s departure, Oilers fans wondering about Jordan Eberle’s point production next season, and Lars Eller has fully recovered from his playoff-ending injuries.
OTTAWA SUN (VIA TORONTO SUN): Bruce Garrioch reports a month after Daniel Alfredsson signed with the Detroit Red Wings, Senators fans are still adjusting to his departure.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: It’ll take some time for Senators fans to adjust to Alfredsson’s departure. Fortunately, this move has happened toward the end of his career, so the sting of seeing him in a Red Wings jersey will only last a year, maybe two.
EDMONTON JOURNAL: David Staples reports Oilers fans are once again gearing up for their favorite guessing game over how many points Jordan Eberle will score this season.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Staples expects Eberle will reach 68 points in 75 games.
MONTREAL GAZETTE: Canadiens forward Lars Eller has fully recovered from his playoff-ending injuries and is looking forward to this season.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: The big concern was how those injuries would psychologically affect Eller, and if it would hamper his performance. Eller was enjoying a breakout performance prior to his injuries. If he’s put this behind him, that’s good news heading into this season and beyond.
