Winter Classic 2013: Red Wings vs Maple Leafs?

3

So, it's sounding like the next winter classic will be hosted by the Red Wings in the Big House, which will allow a crazy amount of people to attend the game, though being able to follow the game might be difficult. I am surprised, though not surprised, to see the Maple Leafs get the call as the opponent.

PuckDaddy West Predictions: 2 Pick Wild for Playoffs

1

So two of the PuckDaddy editors/writers have picked the Wild to make the playoffs this season. Wysh and Chesnokov pick the Wild to surprise this season (Wysh #7 and Ches #8). Those two, plus Lambert, pick the Wild to finish 2nd in the North West. What boggles the mind then is why they picked Mooney, the only PuckDaddy writer involved to pick the Wild dead last in the NW, as the person who should write the season preview.

Thrashers to Winnipeg will be announced today

2

The news around the league is that during a press conference today, it will be announced that the Atlanta Thrashers are moving to Winnipeg starting next season. The further news is that there will be no realignment until after the upcoming season. Reasons being that the league would like to wait on the outcome of Phoenix and the new CBA. There are also rumors that the league could be looking at a deeper realignment that might look to change the divisions and conferences to a greater degree than simply moving some teams around.

On Brunette, Wellman, and Latendresse on the first line?

This is from Russo's mid-day update. He has information on Bruno's injury, the possibility of Wellman getting called back up, and maybe seeing Lats on the first line if Bruno can't go. "We'll see later. Richards made it seem like Guillaume Latendresse would move up from the fourth line to play with Mikko Koivu and Antti Miettinen if Brunette can't play."
