Blog Watch: Quick Hits to Begin Your Weekend

Good afternoon hockey fans and welcome to another edition of “Blog Watch”, where I point out various hockey blogs and what they’re talking about.

Obviously, the rage this week is Illya Kovalchuk but remember, hockey is a team game and is not just about one player. I’d like to take the time to acknowledge what other hockey blogs are talking about these days:

RLD Hockey: Is Mike Modano going to the Detroit Red Wings? As of right now, all signs point to yes.

The Hockey Program: Where will Simon Gagne end up?

Puck Update The Hockey Blog: A terrific look by Steve Ovadia on how Illya Kovalchuk should have handled free agency, which is obviously a lot better than he is handling it now.

The Strangest One of All: Scotty Wazz becomes your favorite GM and looks at where other UFA’s such as Paul Kariya, Marty Turco, Jay McKee, and Alexander Frolov might end up.

Rangers Tribune: When will the New York Rangers’ prospects get a chance to strut their stuff?

Puck Daddy: Is Alexei Yashin thinking of returning to the NHL? I really hope not.

CBC.ca: A look at Elliotte Friedman’s final 30 thoughts of the season. Always a terrific read!

The Hockey News: It’s been a tough off-season for UFA goaltenders, eh?

On The Forecheck: Dirk Hoag asks fans which NHL player they would never like to see join the Predators.

In Lou We Trust: How Mikko Koivu’s contract will impact New Jersey Devils’ forwards Travis Zajac’s and more importantly, Zach Parise’s, future with the club.
