He has proven he can play and play well when healthy, and hes a pending unrestricted free agent with a modest cap hit. Russo writes that at this point in the year hed take up a little under $1.5 million against the salary cap. Its a pretty significant risk because there are all kinds of teams that might be able to make use of Harding. Luis M. Alvarez/Associated Press The struggling Columbus Blue Jackets have a pretty early slot in the waiver priority list (behind only Buffalo and Carolina) and some need. The team is 5-4-0 when Sergei Bobrovsky plays but just 1-6-1 when either of the teams backups dress. Backup Curtis McElhinney is on a cheap one-year deal and could easily be buried in the minors to make space. If the Blue Jackets pass, there are plenty of other clubs that could use a backup goalie. Dallas just cleared cap space and is currently employing the terrible Anders Lindback . New Jersey has started No. source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2270955-will-josh-harding-get-another-chance-in-the-nhl-after-being-placed-on-waivers

Franzen, Tatar lift Red Wings over Blackhawks 4-1 – Yahoo Sports

That message thats out there, thats what I care about. Murrays nephew, Tim, told the Buffalo News he probably would not have left the Senators assistant GM job for the Sabres GM job Jan. 9 had he known Murray had Stage 4 cancer. The two spoke Tuesday at the GM meeting. Obviously the connection runs pretty deep, Murray said. But as I told him at that time, You have an opportunity for one of these jobs, and theyre picking you. You better take it. Theres no guarantees in life. No, there arent. Murray has two days of chemo every two weeks. Its hard to sleep the first night, and it takes a lot out of him. Hes tired some days. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/despite-cancer-battle–it-s-business-as-usual-for-senators-gm-bryan-murray—we-live-our-lives-012105494-nhl.html

”It’s unforgiveable to make a turnover that bad,” he said. ”Pretty sloppy game. A lot of turnovers, a lot of giveaways.” View gallery Detroit Red Wings left wing Tomas Tatar celebrates his goal against the Chicago Blackhawks in the se Detroit hadn’t played since Sunday and seemed much fresher in the second period. That was fine with Red Wings coach Mike Babcock. ”It’s always nice to look fast against a good opponent,” he said. ”I thought we did a real good job in the second period to tilt the rink a little bit. ”I like us to play fast; I like us to play in attack mode.” Luke Glendening put Detroit on the board six minutes in when he backhanded a rebound of Drew Miller’s shot past Corey Crawford, who finished with 32 saves. Kane scored Chicago’s lone goal during a power play later in the first. Brendan Smith put the game away with an empty-net goal.

He signed a one-year, $2 million free-agent deal with Chicago last July and was envisioned as a No. 2 center, but has start slowly and averaged just under 13 minutes of ice time entering Sundays game. The Blackhawks start a six-game road trip on Thursday in Calgary and dont play again at the United Center until Dec. 3. The game was tied 2-2 following a wide-open first period. Keith opened the scoring on the Blackhawks first shot when he completed a 2-on-1 break with Patrick Kane at 1:18 into the game. McKenzie and Horcoff then connected 39 seconds apart to put Dallas ahead 2-1. McKenzies goal at 4:49 was a perfect tip-in from the left side of the net, and set up by Erik Coles pinpoint cross-ice pass through Seabrooks legs. Horcoff was wide open on the left side when he fired in a rebound of Vernon Fiddlers shot from the right circle. Seabrook tied it 2-2 during a power play with 8:02 left in the period when his drive from the blue line deflected off Dallas Jamie Benn. The pace slowed in the scoreless second period. source: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/11/16/blackhawks-surge-past-stars-6-2/

His 1.76 goals-against average ranks near the top of the NHL. In front of Crawford, the Blackhawks have utilized an array of contributions. Seven players scored Chicago’s seven goals in the last two games. Detroit (7-3-5) enters with points in each of its last three games and, more notably, has the hottest power-play unit in the league. The Red Wings have scored two power-play goals in each of the past three games, their longest streak for multiple power-play goals since Feb. 15-20, 2009. “We’re getting the puck back, moving the puck quicker and really attacking when we get it,” said forward Gustav Nyquist, who leads the team with four goals on the man advantage and eight overall. “… The biggest thing is we’re attacking more and getting the puck back and getting those second and third opportunities.” That success will be challenged by the Blackhawks, who own the league’s top penalty-kill percentage at 91.7. Pavel Datsyuk hopes to play after missing Detroit’s last two games with a sore groin. Historically, however, Datsyuk has provided little help against Chicago. He owns a minus-4 rating in 61 regular-season matchups – his second-worst against any team – and including the postseason, he has scored once in his past 11 meetings. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-red-wings-preview-004225173–nhl.html
