  • Kent Wilson has a column up at Flames Nation and comes to the conclusion that if Calgary wants to be competitive again, they'll have to fire GM Darryl Sutter.
  • James Mirtle of The Globe & Mail picks the NHL's 30 top defensive defensemen using quality of competition, even-strength goals against and short-handed goals against.
  • Jago of In Lou We Trust thinks Travis Zajac should be considered a contender for the 2009-10 Selke Trophy.
  • Mile High Hockey's David Driscoll-Carignan has a transcript of Avalanche coach Joe Sacco's conference call.
