Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while things are starting to happen a month into the hockey season.
*Reports are circulating that a three-team trade that would have sent Matt Duchene to the Ottawa Senators has fallen apart. with the Bruins down three centers and besieged by injuries right now, it's interesting to hear the names of Duchene and Kyle Turris both out there, and available. It might be difficult for Don Sweeney and the Bruins to pull off a deal with the divisional rival Senators at this point, but Turris would be a nice addition to Boston’s lineup given how they’re aging down the middle.
*PHT writer Joey Alfieri asks the million dollar question: What in the world is wrong with Carey Price up in Montreal right now?
*Best wishes to former NHL referee Kerry Fraser, who has been diagnosed with a rare, incurable form of cancer.
*Alex Tanguay and EJ Hradek spend some time on the NHL Network discussing their predictions for this weekend’s action in the NHL.
*Who says hockey players can’t misbehave? Alex Killorn and Kevin Hayes were among the players fined for dueling water bottle incidents in a recent Lightning/Rangers game that included a TV analyst getting caught in the crossfire between the benches.
*For something completely different: I have to take issue with anything but the “Challenge of the Super Friends” season with the Legion of Doom being the best season on Saturday morning.
