Found February 15, 2012 on The 6th Sens:
Despite the repeated efforts of management and ownership to shoot down any prospective trade talks that would see the organization give up some significant future assets, be it draft picks or prospects, in some short-sighted deal that wouldn't benefit the team's long term interests, during the first intermission of last night's Senators game, Sportsnet's Hockey Central panel elaborated on a number of players that could pique the interest of the Ottawa Senators. After the affable Jeff Marek kicked things off by stating that Senators fans must be disappointed in the news that Carolina's Tuomo Ruutu has been taken off the market after sustaining an upper body injury during the first period of their Monday, February 13th game against Montreal, a few other alternatives were suggested like Dustin Penner, Ales Hemsky and Mike Knuble. (As an aside, are there actually morons out there who are actually disappointed Ruutu's injury will prevent the Senators from m...

Mike Knuble Staying Put With Washington Capitals

Mike Knuble will likely return to the Washington Capitals lineup this weekend as the team starts a four-game road trip. And general manager George McPhee insists the veteran winger won’t be on the trade block this month – despite his recent three-game banishment to the press box as a healthy scratch.Knuble, 39, expressed his displeasure with the benching. But he hasn’t asked...

Jack Edwards Mailbag: Mike Knuble Could Be Bargain Acquisition If Veteran Forward Has Anything Left

The Bruins hit the road following a 3-0 loss to the Rangers on Tuesday night, desperate to try to shake things up after a bit of a lull. The B's got off on the right foot, holding on for a 4-3 win in a shootout against the Canadiens on Wednesday night, the first game of what will be a six-game road trip. NESN's Jack Edwards got the night off from broadcasting duties for the...

Capitals' Mike Knuble may be ready for a change of scenery

Mike Knuble went into the season as the Washington Capitals' first-line right wing. Maybe he would spend time on the second line, but the reliable scorer and alternate captain sure didn't seem destined for life on the fourth line. Or in the press box as a healthy scratch. But ...

Once a steady scorer, Capitals' Mike Knuble now would just like to play

When the Washington Capitals were trailing the Florida Panthers 5-2 in early December and looked more than out of the game, Mike Knuble stood up in the locker room during intermission and challenged his teammates. They fell just short of tying the score after a furious third-period comeback. But for ...

George McPhee: Caps 'have no interest' in trading Mike Knuble

Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee doesn't mind Mike Knuble showing some frustration about not being in the lineup. That the 39-year-old alternate captain pointed out, "You want to go somewhere where you're going to play and you're going to contribute to the team," is a sign of his competitive ...

A Peek Inside What Caps Players See in Hunter

People can dissect the Dale Hunter plus/minus comment regarding Mike Knuble to their heart’s content;  the odd call up (twice) of Joel Rechlicz; and the equally odd call up of Braden Holtby; it’s all fair game for analysis (and when you figure out a logical answer, please give me a call). But the other side of the coin is to figure out if the guys feel they’re growing under...

Capitals' season may hinge on 4-game swing

It's been a week of drama for the Washington Capitals, from veteran Mike Knuble bristling at being a healthy scratch to former goaltender Olie Kolzig calling out captain Alex Ovechkin for letting his "rock star status" affect his play. Perhaps a three-game losing streak and three days off contribute to ...

Capitals can't get it right in loss to Sharks

The Washington Capitals tried just about everything. They scratched Mike Knuble, again. They called up prospect goaltender Braden Holtby and gave him a surprise start. They called up enforcer Joel Rechlicz. And they announced Holtby and Rechlicz were around less than two hours before faceoff against the San Jose Sharks. ...
