Dater’s Daily: Erik Karlsson To Oilers? Robertson Point Streak Over

Published

Erik Karlsson

HARTFORD, CONN. – Greetings from Gate 7 at Bradley International Airport, where a Frontier flight to Denver is supposed to take off in about an hour. Foggy and rainy here in the Insurance City. I stayed an extra day out East after the Philly game the other night. Looking forward to getting back home though. Let’s do some quick NHL links, starting with some rumors that Erik Karlsson may be taking off out of San Jose, maybe for Edmonton.

  • The Oilers need some defensive help. The Sharks may already be in selloff mode, and the Oilers reportedly have interest in the former Norris Trophy winner (TSN)
  • The perspective from Boston on tonight’s Bruins rematch with the Avalanche (Boston Hockey Now)
  • The long Jason Robertson point streak is no more (Dallas Hockey Now)
  • I forgot how exhausting travel is. The problem: you never have more than a few hours in one place. It’s either to the rink, to the airport, to the hotel, to the rental car, to a spot to eat, rinse, repeat all day every day. I shouldn’t have forgotten about it, though. I’ve flown something like 2.5 million miles since 1995 doing this stuff. About 1,600 hotel room nights.
  • Shane Wright has to be feeling pretty good today. After being passed over by Montreal in the draft and “staring down” the Habs draft table, he got his first NHL goal last night against…Montreal (Montreal Hockey Now)
  • The Flyers still have more man-games lost than the Avalanche (Philly Hockey Now)
  • The Islanders lost to the Blues last night, but are still better than people thought this year (NYI Hockey Now)
  • I’ll be reintroducing myself to the family tonight and taking the game off. Brennan Vogt will be all over it though.

  • The Capitals want more from Anthony Mantha (Washington Hockey Now)
  • Avalanche are pretty heavy underdogs against the Bruins at home tonight (SuperBook Colorado)

Can we get a Bowen Byram update?

I fully anticipate the possibility of not winning again until after Christmas. That’s depressing as f***.

Well, the Bruins are an old team and will face the injury bug and find themselves coming back to Earth. Meanwhile, the Avs players whom are injured and out a month or so will be a benefit in the long run. They played deep into June, had fun all summer, and are paying the price. When they repeat, time to get back at it a little sooner and be in better beefed up condition.
