Should Calgary Trade Up For Ekblad?

Follow me @IanEsplen for fun, Flames, rumours and NHL Draft coverage   I'm sure everyone has heard the rumour out there that the Florida Panthers are shopping the No. 1 pick. The word on the street is that they would like to take a forward again. My best guess for this rational is pretty simple - they want a more impactful player now, rather then three years from now....

Turnovers and sloppy play lead to disappointing loss to Islanders

Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images This was a rough game for the Rangers. They gave up a pair of short handed goals, they committed 16 turnovers (to the Islanders 5), and the goaltending didn’t bail them out as they dropped a disappointing game to the Islanders by a score of 5-3. Henrik Lundqvist really isn’t to blame for the way the goals were scored, but the fact of the matter...
