  • Compare the production levels of the 2nd overall pick in the 2007 draft and the 22nd overall pick in the 2007 draft. Who would you declare the better player? [Sportsnet]
  • Age does not seem to be a factor for Andrei Markov, as the veteran blue liner continues to log heavy minutes and still remains one of the best defensemen in the NHL. [La Presse - French]
  • With the injury to Alexei Emelin, Jarred Tinordi will be called up. [EOTP]
  • How tight could the Hart vote be this year? Carey Price, Pekka Rinne and Alex Ovechkin make for an interesting mix. [TSN]
  • But here are five reasons why the Price should be the one to come out on top. [Journal De Montreal - French]
  • Eric Gryba attempted to seriously injure Lars Eller, yet again. [SB Nation]
  • Markov had to help get Subban off the ice, after Subban got hurt blocking a shot. [Sportsnet]

Around The League And Elsewhere
