Leblanc traded to the Ducks

19

Earlier in the week, Andrew Berkshire posed some questions on what should be done with Louis Leblanc. Marc Bergevin seems to have answered that question in no uncertain terms by dealing the Bulldogs forward to the Anaheim ducks for a conditional fifth round draft pick in 2015. A conditional fifth round pick seems to me a bit of a weak return for a player like Louis Leblanc. Sure, he has struggled in recent years, but I would have expected a little more for someone who was drafted as high as he was. What do you think? Was this enough of a return for Leblanc?

Earlier this week, Marc Bergevin noted that Tim Bozon had asked for his equipment, which he took as a good sign. Two months and 5 days after he was released from hospital, Bozon is on the ice for the first time to practice. Great news, and great to see for Tim. Bozon also posted a quick instagram video.

NHL won't punish Dorsett's headbutt on Weaver

6

According to Pierre Lebrun, the NHL set a dangerous precedent today, allowing Derek Dorsett to skate into game six unscathed after a full body headbutt to Mike Weaver. It's a gross thing to let go, especially considering Patrick Kaleta was banned for four games for a less dangerous headbutt.

Carey Price is back on the ice, skating without equipment

There were rumours surfacing the last couple of days that Carey Price tore his ACL and would be out for a long time, requiring surgery to repair it, but his appearance on the ice this morning without equipment should quash that. There's no way he would be putting extra strain on his knee if he was waiting for swelling to go down for surgery.
