The Senators fall to the NY Rangers in seven hard-fought games, the Canucks aren’t lacking for goalie depth, Oilers GM keeping mum on his plans with the first overall pick, and prospect Filip Forsberg would love to join the Montreal Canadiens.
OTTAWA SUN: The Senators surprising season came to end with a 2-1 loss in Game Seven of their Conference quarterfinal against the NY Rangers, leading more than a few observers to wonder if this was captain Daniel Alfredsson’s final game. Let’s hope not. He’s got one more year left on his contract and rebounded well from last season’s injury-hampered performance. Still, he also suffered two concussions this season, and that’ll be a factor which weighs on his decision.
VANCOUVER SUN: Canucks management are optimistic over the development of promising goalie Eddie Lack, whom some see as Cory Schneider’s potential backup if the team trades Roberto Luongo this summer.
EDMONTON JOURNAL: Oilers GM Steve Tambellini seemed to support head coach Tom Renney, but a decision over the latter’s future with the club has yet to be determined. Tambellini continues to keep mum on his intentions with the first overall pick in this year’s entry draft.
LA PRESSE: Swedish prospect Filip Forsberg said he’d love to play for the Montreal Canadiens, who hold the third overall pick in this year’s entry draft. For the pros and cons of Forsberg, check out this profile at AllHabs.net.
