Dater’s Daily: Will The Devils Ever Lose Again? Who Should Start For Avalanche In Dallas?



Avalanche francouz

A good Monday to all. Kind of a quiet weekend in the Dater household. Might be a touch of the flu going around that nipped all of us. But feeling better now, mostly Always nice to write on a morning when you know the Avalanche will be playing later that night, so let’s do some links, notes and whatnot in the meantime.

  • Who should start in goal for the Avalanche tonight against Dallas? Georgie or Frankie? Listen, we know Georgie is the No. 1 guy. But I can see Jared Bednar going with Frankie here, after that unbelievable performance against Carolina. We’ll see who is first off the ice at morning skate today.
  • Twelve wins in a row for the New Jersey Devils. My goodness, what’s going on in Newark? I think the streak ends tonight against Edmonton though. Connor McDavid will break some hearts at the Prudential Center I think.
  • Boston Hockey Now: The GM meetings in Toronto were a springboard. There are officially Patrick Kane rumors, and Boston appears to be first in line. Get the latest NHL trade chatter.
  • I watched the latest Rock and Roll induction ceremony on HBO last night. Nice to see Judas Priest get in. Priest made my ears bleed with their heavy metal sound, but I loved it. Rob Halford had some of the greatest pipes in rock history. He looks a bit like Grandpa Munster now though.
  • Sportsnet: Ryan Reynolds is meeting with potential Ottawa Senators ownership groups. It would be pretty cool to have Deadpool on board in the NHL.
  • Gotta say, I’ve been in hog heaven since getting the Kiss Creatures of the Night deluxe box set the other day.
