What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:

  • The Ducks have announced a ticket price freeze for next season.  Good on them.  All teams should be doing this in light of the economy’s more than significant downturn.
  • Peter Chiarelli talks trade deadlineI don’t see him doing anything significant and I think that is the right move. 
  • No timetable on the Ryan Miller injury.  I can’t wait for the daily updates that reveal next to nothing.
  • See you later Jimmy Howard.  That didn’t last long…
  • Jacques Martin talks about the Jay Bouwmeester situationTo me, he has to be dealt.  They can get some nice assets back for him and, I believe, still make the playoffs.
  • Dustin Brown can’t play tomorrow night because he’s his wife is pregnantI got him confused with his Governor.
  • Owen Nolan is out tomorrow and Andrew Brunette is back inThey need both goal scorers for this road trip.
  • Habs lines from practice today.  Canucks next up for team controversy.
  • Radek Bonk is expected to be out of the Predators lineup for two weeks.  Will miss his faceoff presence.
  • Brett Cyraglis doesn’t like the Renney firing.  Fair points.
  • The obligatory Viktor Kozlov injury updateWhen is this guy coming back already?
