New Jersey Devils defenseman Mark Fayne had wrist surgery on Friday and may miss the start of the 2012-13 season, NHL.com reported. Fayne had the scapholunate ligament of his left wrist repaired, and that typically sidelines a player for 3-4 months. Fayne, 25, is one of three players the Devils tendered qualifying offers to on Monday. He had four goals and 13 assists while playing all 82 regular-season games this past season. He had three assists in the postseason.

Brendan Shanahan is a Hall of Fame player. What he was able to accomplish on the ice ranks with the all-time greats of the game.

Let me say there is a reason for my inconsistencies and absence from this site since April. Some...
I read the release from the Hockey Hall of Fame and couldn’t believe it. Long-time Red Wing Brendan Shanahan, his three Stanley Cups and 600-plus goals won’t be heading to Toronto this year, and I just can’t believe it. It’s insane.That’s it as I’m still sick, but I just can’t believe it. Pavel Bure and Adam Oates are fine players, as is Mats Sundin, but did they win...
And Brendan Shanahan has been unbelievably, unfathomably left out. Bure and Sundin, yes. Shanny…no. It’s so pathetic that it’s hard to even muster any anger over this one.

By Malik Report standards, five entries in a day is downright delinquent, this sniffly blogger had laid down for an afternoon nap simply because I assumed Brendan Shanahan would obviously be named one of the Hockey Hall of Fame’s 2012 inductees, only to wake and find out that Adam Oates, Joe Sakic, Pavel Bure and Mats Sundin were named to the Hall, but not Shanahan on Tuesday afternoon...
