Crosby hit the topsy-turvy, skill competition on the Vegas Strip?
After Jack Eichel became a Vegas Gold Knight, (credible) NHL trade rumors dried up. I like to spice up the Daily with this, but we don’t have anything yet. The Pittsburgh Penguins lost the game to the Washington Capitals. However, Sidney Crosby has shown his frustration and pushed a Capitals defenseman into the strip, and Eric Staal is still hoping to play somewhere, anywhere this season.

Colorado: If you have the talent, the world will find you. The National Hockey Now Network has welcomed fresh blood to Colorado – Kelsey Hammond. Former Avs and sports radio trainee who can write. The photo of her bulldog is worth the click.
San Jose: After a good start, the San Jose Sharks quickly fall apart and drift away from their identity.
Calgary: Dan Vladar has been trying to get by for a few years. He was one of the overcrowded Bruins’ sectors and in Calgary he is behind Jacob Markstrom. However, head coach Daryl Sutter rewarded him with a few starts, and the coach in turn was rewarded with a 4-0 shutout. Vladar – “I’ll frame the puck. “
