Around the Rink: Maybe, Baby

David Krejci and Loui Eriksson would like to remain best pals for at least a few more rounds.

Will the Bruins make the playoffs? Maybe. Will they sign Danton Heinen? Perhaps. Will the Flyers make the playoffs? Maybe. Will the Red Wings miss the playoffs? Maybe. Hopefully.


  • How can the Bruins clinch a playoff spot? NESN has laid out the details.
  • Former Bruin Tom Fitzgerald and his kids (including Bruins prospect Ryan) were featured in The Players’ Tribune.



  • Vladimir Tarasenko scored a beauty to clutch home ice for the Blues.
  • Will Jonathan Drouin be staying in Tampa Bay?


  • The entire Russian under-18 squad was replaced before leaving for worlds due to doping. Scandalous!
  • The Bruins won last night, which means the playoff picture won’t be complete until the season is officially over.


  • NCHC commissioner Josh Fenton spoke with Along the Boards this week.
  • Noted guy who rarely covers hockey Chris Gasper has a point here.
  • The Eagles were gracious in their loss to Quinnipiac yesterday.

    Documentary about the New Zealand hockey team. Thinking I’ll rent it at some point over the weekend:

    Is Gasper going to be the new Amalie? Surprised to see him writing hockey.

    Gasper is a columnist, so he writes about each sport. Mostly I associate him with the Patriots, though.

    Tony Marinaro and Brian Wilde believe that PK Subban will be on the trading block before July:

    And I will go to Montreal with nothing but a chair and bag of popcorn when they announce they traded Subban.

    Montréal will have burned to the ground by the time you get there.

    You might either want to consider bringing some Jiffy Pop to make, or some S’Mores.

    I said it before when this rumor came up: If they do that I will no longer be able to hate the Habs, I’ll feel too sorry for them being so goddamned stupid and all the fun of hating them will be ruined. Why not throw in Price. First round picks. Sheesh.

    There’s this persistent belief in the Habs’ fanbase and media that the Habs’ roster is good enough as it is. That somehow the only changes that had to be made were either different decisions by the coach or fewer problems in the locker room. They can keep on thinking that as far as I’m concerned. That would be great.

    I really think the Bolts will keep Drouin if only because he was drafted as someone that could seriously help out the team in years to come, it looks like that the whole stand-off thing is water under the bridge, and while *I* think they’d be crazy not to, signing Steven Stamkos is not yet set in stone.
