What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:
- Sergei Kostitsyn a.k.a SK74 says in an interview posted on Puck Daddy that he doesn’t see a future for himself with the Montreal Canadiens. Well, SK74, you have all the talent in the world and are still young (22 years old) but you’ll need to work on checking your ego wherever your next stop may be.
- The Montreal Canadiens defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 in overtime last night to open the 2009’10 season but they may have lost bread-and-butter defenseman Andrei Markov until February.
- Canucks prospect Cody Hodgson is waiting for a second opinion on his injured back before he reports to his junior club, the Ontario Hockey League’s Brampton Battalion.
