  1. The Blackhawks placed forward Tanner Kero on waivers on Thursday, according to a source. Kero has been a healthy https://www.blackhawkschifans.com/brent-seabrook-jersey-c-3.html  scratch the last 10 games for the Blackhawks. He has one goal and two assists in eight games this season. He signed a two year contract extension prior to the season. He has a 750,000 cap hit. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said after Wednesday s 6 2 loss to the Washington Capitals he would look at potential roster moves. The Blackhawks have not recalled any forwards or defensemen from the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL this season. “We’ll talk about it,” Quenneville said after the game. “We mix it up to change it up a little bit. I think we had a decent stretch there and tonight didn’t get what we’re looking for. That means more pace, more passion https://www.blackhawkschifans.com/michal-rozsival-jersey-c-5.html, more puck.” The Blackhawks are expected to recall forward Vinnie Hinostroza from the IceHogs on Friday once Kero is claimed or clears waivers. Hinostroza did not travel with the IceHogs on Thursday, according to a Rockford source. The IceHogs skated in Rockford on Thursday morning and then departed for Grand Rapids, Michigan, where they will play on Friday. Hinostroza has nine goals and 13 assists in 23 games for the IceHogs this season. Hinostroza had a strong training camp and was among the Blackhawks last cuts. He s led the IceHogs in points and has been vocal about believing he should be in the NHL. “Yeah Patrick Kane Jersey, obviously, I felt like I played good enough in the preseason to stay up there,” Hinostroza said in late October. “Coming down here, it was hard at first , but stuff happens. Can t look back, just got to go forward and keep working hard. “All the decisions that are made I don t make them. All I can do is come to the rink every day, get better, work hard. I think I m an NHL player. So, if I come down here https://www.blackhawkschifans.com/jan-rutta-jersey-c-4.html, I have to show that and be the best player out here.” The Blackhawks are on a five game losing streak and are 12 11 5 on the season. It s their longest losing streak since the 2011 12 season.  
  2. The unpopular opinion series reaches Pennsylvania, where we take a look at an annual debate. Which Pittsburgh Penguins center is better, Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin? I think the debate about the Pittsburgh Penguins should be a bigger one. The answer to the best center since Mario Lemieux isn’t that obvious. Especially when both Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are all time greats. Each will have their number retired by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Yes https://www.penguinspitfans.com/evgeni-malkin-jersey-c-18.html, Crosby has more awards. But Malkin has made a difference as well and probably deserved the most recent award Crosby received the 2016 17 Conn Smythe Trophy . I’m going to make my case in three categories – health https://www.penguinspitfans.com/greg-mckegg-jersey-c-17.html, awards and who should receive them, and who makes the biggest difference game in and game out. I think Malkin wins in all three. This is not to say Crosby is bad, at all. He’s an all time great. But Malkin doesn’t get the credit he deserves. Health Malkin has not been known as a durable player at any point in his career. He has played more than 80 games twice, in back to back seasons. In those two seasons, Malkin won his first Art Ross, came in second in the Hart Trophy race and won the Conn Smythe with the Pittsburgh Penguins as they won their first Cup. This is the biggest part of my argument. When Malkin is healthy https://www.penguinspitfans.com/ryan-reaves-jersey-c-16.html, there is no one better in the NHL. The other two times Malkin has been above 75 games, he has won the Calder Trophy 2006 07 , Hart, Ted Lindsay, Art Ross, and been named to First Team All Star all 2011 12 . Again, the problem has been whenever Malkin is below 75 games, he’s far below it. Over the last six years, Malkin has topped out at 69 games for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Even in the lockout shortened season, he couldn’t hit 40 games. This season, Malkin has already missed four games. But he’s at a point per game pace over the 26 games he has played, as of Dec. 8. The scary part is that’s actually below his career average of 1.17. Though Crosby has had concussion issues throughout his career, he has still been healthy for most of his career. He has eight seasons over 75 games and has topped 100 points five times over those seasons. That’s been one of the biggest differences between Malkin and Crosby – Sid the Kid’s better health Chad Ruhwedel Jersey has given him slightly more games per season, which in turn has given him more opportunity to stay hot. Malkin has played an average of 61 games a season and has scored an average of 71 points. Crosby has played an average of 62 games and scored 81 points on average. Malkin has been below a point per game just once in his career, a season where he played 43 games and scored 37 points. Crosby has never been below a point per game on a season.  
  3. There has to be a lot on the minds of the Ottawa Senators ownership right about now. Coming into Saturday, the Senators have lost 10 of their last 11 games and have since plummeted into seventh in the Atlantic Division. An inefficient offensive effort that has scored just 76 goals in 27 games alongside less than stellar goaltending has the Senators holding onto a 9 11 7 record. As such https://www.ottsenatorsfans.com/fredrik-claesson-jersey-c-7.html, the Senators, much like one other sinking NHL team, are calling upon desperate measures to get themselves out of this funk. That includes, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, a plan to ask each of their 10 players with no trade clauses to offer up their list of teams they don’t want to be dealt to. One of those players with a no trade clause? Star defenseman Erik Karlsson himself. NHL no trade clauses are often a staple for the league’s top tier of players , giving a team’s star athletes a sense of stability by allowing them to have to consent to be traded. The Senators have 10 players, including Karlsson, with modified no trade clauses, meaning each player has a list teams they do not want to be traded to. While, according to Friedman, Karlsson may have to offer up his list of names, that does not mean a trade is incoming. “I was told that does not mean 100 percent that Erik Karlsson is getting traded. It just opens the option, but I still don’t think it’s likely,” Friedman said on Hockey Night in Canada Saturday evening. We’re still a season and some change from seeing Karlsson’s contract expire with the Senators https://www.ottsenatorsfans.com/erik-karlsson-jersey-c-6.html, but that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from whirling. After Karlsson told the Ottawa Sun at the start of December that he’s going to sign for nothing less than market value in his next contract, ruling out the possibility of a hometown discount, there’s been some chatter about the Senators’ next steps. That declaration that he’ll receive market value in Ottawa, or elsewhere Ottawa Senators Blank Jersey, when contract talks come around has seemingly ruffled feathers in the Senators’ organization. According to insider Nick Kypreos, team owner Eugene Melnyk was not pleased with the public statement, but they are “trying to move past that.” We’ve only really just begun seeing the potential headache Karlsson’s contract talks will be. Karlsson is on the books with the Senators until the end of the 2018 19 season, but will likely be a topic of conversation at this year’s trade deadline and free agency market thanks to his impending negotiations. Stars in this league can get re signed as early as possible, or way late in the game during the player’s free agency period, and there’s no telling how these talks will go. Karlsson is the Senators’ centerpiece, but market value for a defenseman of his caliber will be far north of P.K. Subban’s 9 million cap hit per season. Subban is currently the NHL’s highest paid defenseman in terms of cap hit, but Karlsson is likely to smash that to smithereens, either in Ottawa or elsewhere. Currently, Karlsson is on a steal of a seven year, 45.5 million deal with an AAV of 6.5 million per season. That ranks 11th best of all active NHL defensemen. We’ve stated before how hard it will be for Ottawa to re sign Karlsson in two years’ time given how much he’ll likely command in terms of salary cap space. The Senators have a lot to juggle in relation to Karlsson https://www.ottsenatorsfans.com/johnny-oduya-jersey-c-5.html and what they believe their franchise’s direction in the future will be. What seems to be certain is that Karlsson will at least remain with the team through this rough stretch. There’s no reason for the Senators to trade Karlsson now, despite the defenseman having just one point in 11 games coming into Saturday. The entire Senators team is struggling, and trading Karlsson away now exacerbates their problems in the short term. For now, the Senators’ best bet is to either ride out the storm or trade away one of their aging veterans in Bobby Ryan, Derick Brassard, or Craig Anderson to shuffle the deck. The problem of Karlsson’s impending payday can wait until another day.  
  4. The New York Rangers played a 60 minute hockey game Mats Zuccarello Jersey, and it led to a well deserved 5 2 win over the New Jersey Devils Saturday night. At this point in the season and with how tight the Metropolitan Division is https://www.rangersnyfans.com/steven-kampfer-jersey-c-8.html, the New York Rangers know that they need every single point they can get. After a disheartening loss to the Capitals the previous night, they came out with a jump in their step. And their solid effort put a tally in the win column. Jimmy Vesey got the game started fast for the Rangers when he netted his sixth of the season. His wrist shot beat Keith Kinkaid short side a little over five minutes into the period. The Rangers’ defense did a great job of holding the Devils to only 2 shots on goal for the remainder of the period. Halfway through the second period, Jesper Fast was alone and wide open in front of the net. He received a great pass from Rick Nash and wripped a shot in for a 2 0 lead. However https://www.rangersnyfans.com/nick-holden-jersey-c-9.html, the Devils cut it to 2 1 when Damon Severson took a missile of a slap shot from the point past Henrik Lundqvist. Mats Zuccarello went in on a breakaway and scored towards the end of the second period. This put the Rangers up 3 1 heading into the third. But he didn’t stop there. He scored his second of the https://www.rangersnyfans.com/ryan-mcdonagh-jersey-c-7.html  night on a great pass from J.T. Miller. 13 seconds later, the Devils responded as Miles Wood made it 4 2 , keeping the game within reach. However, Kevin Hayes, with assists from Nash and Fast, put the game away for the Rangers, leading to a 5 2 win
