OTB: Reaction to Ryan Whitney Trade, no nerves for Brodeur and Wings interesed in Lapperiere

What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:

  • It looks like Tim Thomas will start tonight for Boston.  Get to face the new look Ducks.
  • In encouraging news for Sabres fans, Patrick Lalime is on the ice this morning.  I’d guess that he’ll play.
  • Apparently the Wings are interested in acquiring Ian Lapperiere.  Every contender should be.
  • A Q & A with Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson.  Good read.
  • Martin Brodeur isn’t nervous for tonight’s game.  No surprise considering he’s started Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the gold medal game at the Olympics and the finals of the World Cup.
  • Seth Rorabaugh of Empty Netters likes the Whitney deal for the Penguins.  Me, not so much.
  • Michael Nylander could be a healthy scratch tonight Washington.  You have to wonder what would have happened if things would have worked out with him in NY.
