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. 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. staff writer John Kresier looks at the league’s best players who are under the age of 21.
