Nashville Predators: As long as the Predators are in the playoff race, Botta doesn’t see them trading Ryan Suter or Shea Weber. After signing Pekka Rinne, Suter is next on their list, and Poile will try hard to re-sign him.
Vancouver Canucks: The Canucks won’t trade Roberto Luongo. His long term contract turns teams off.
NO PUCKING KIDDING!??!!
It’s possible that in a few years something could happen. The Canucks may be looking for blueline help, but the salary cap may come into play. If Botta were Mike Gillis and were taking offers for Cory Schneider, he would ask for a mid 1st round pick and a 20 minute a game defenseman in his prime.
Minnesota Wild: Center Mikko Koivu missed his 4th straight game with a leg injury, but there is hope that he’ll be ready for Monday’s game against the Avalanche.
Dallas Stars: Kari Lehtonen could be back for their Dec. 29th game against the Blue Jackets.
Stephane Robidas will miss his 2nd consecutive game tonight with a foot injury. He took shot off the foot in Tuesday’s practice.
Defenseman Philip Larsen has a thigh contusion, has missed the last 2 games, but they’ll decide at the morning skate if he’ll be able to go.
Buffalo Sabres: Sabres winger Thomas Vanek left last night’s game after re-aggravating an upper body injury. Vanek originally suffered the injury on Saturday and is listed as day to day.
Montreal Canadiens: Pagnotta doesn’t think the Canadiens will replace GM Pierre Gauthier until the summer. After the coaching change and losing 4 straight games, the roster needs a major change.
MAYBE SCOTT GOMEZ IS PART OF THIS PROBLEM IN MONTREAL!? PUCKING CLOWN
