On the Beat: More on Malkin’s performance, ownership bids for the Canadiens and Jack Johnson’s dad responds

What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:

Playoff teams:

  • James Gordon evaluates last night’s Pens/Canes game.  I expect a big game from Eric Staal in Game 3.
  • Is Evgeni Malkin’s goal from last night better than Mario Lemieux’s from the Finals in 1991? Ummm, no.

Non-playoff teams:

  • GM for the Ducks isn’t exactly an easy jobIt is really going to tough to bring Niedermayer back.
  • Jack Johnson’s dad continues to make headlinesPretty funny letter I have to say.
  • Is Todd Richards going to become the next coach of the WildIf I were a betting man, I’d say most definitely.
  • No lack of bids for the Montreal Canadiens franchise.  Nothing like a good cable battle.
  • Apparently the KHL is looking to make a splash againThe league didn’t exactly have the smoothest campaign, so I’m not sure what the big draw would be, aside from the cash of course.
