Don Cherry called out Toronto GM Brian Burke for not having any players from Ontario on his roster.  [Puck Daddy] 

Things aren't looking good for injured Capitals forward Nicklas Backstrom as he has gone back to Sweden to spend time with his family.  [NHL]  The Capitals denied he is going to Sweden to see a [specialist]. 

More Capitals...Dale Hunter denied [benching] Ovechkin in last night's loss to the Flyers. 

Flyers D-men Kimmo Timonen and Andrej Meszaros are both out [indefinitely] with lower body injuries.  Bad news for a defense that already lost Chris Pronger.

Steve Yzerman will again be the Executive Director for Team [Canada] in the 2014 Winter Olympics.  There is still no guarantee NHL players will be involved in the tournament.
