Here he is pointing to a fan wearing a paper bag on his head, with sign stating that general manager Bob Murray should be fired before star winger Bobby Ryan is ever traded. Speaking of potential firings … [OC Register] • Helene Elliott on the Ducks firing Randy Carlyle: "Murray and Carlyle are close, and Murray last summer gave him an extension through 2013-14, but Murray had to be feeling pressure to dismiss Carlyle or lose his own job. Club owners Henry and Susan Samueli aren't meddlesome but they aren't stupid. The team was going nowhere with Carlyle behind the bench."

Changes Abound for Blackhawks As Patrick Kane Moves to Wing

After what can only be described as a less than stellar homecoming on Tuesday, the Chicago Blackhawks will be sporting a way different look on offense when the New York Islanders come to town Friday night.

Cory Schneider or Roberto Luongo? That Is The Question!

The Vancouver Canucks play the Nashville Predators tonight on home ice at 7 p.m. But all anyone in Vancouver can talk about is the goalie controversy between Cory Schneider and Roberto Luongo. Dave Lozo, a writer for the NHL tweeted Canucks fans should start calling Cory Schneider the C-wall. He's played in every one of the last six games, five of which the Canucks have won.

Chicago Blackhawks New Lines: Respecting Marcus Krüger

It’s Goalie Season In Vancouver

from Cam Cole of the Vancouver Sun, People who move to Vancouver from other parts of Canada often lament that they miss the four seasons. Roberto Luongo has no idea what they’re talking about.

Kruger Goes to Where Blackhawks Always Wanted Him

The story out of Thursday's practice is that Marcus Kruger is centering Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa on a second line, with Patrick Kane returning to the sweet embrace of shotgun on Jonathan Toews' line, with Viktor Stalberg.
