Teams that have been eliminated from the playoffs:

  • Is Ray Emery going to sign with Philadelphia?  The link is broken on the Ottawa Citizen page but that’s the headline.

Teams that did not make the playoffs:

  • The Denver Post’s Adrian Dater already crowns the Red Wings with the 2009 championship.  (Writer’s note: I remember Dater picking Anaheim for the Finals, and then came upon his blog entry from last night admitting such.)
  • Damien Cox talks about the possibility of Pierre McGuire being hired by the Minnesota Wild.
  • Chris Zelkovich says having a broadcaster stand between the benches has been a great move by NBC.
