The Globe and Mail discusses how since the Ottawa / Colorado trade the Sens are winning and thus losing.

 

Anderson’s play since arriving has put in jeopardy Part III of that Master Plan: to grab one of the elite picks in this June’s entry draft. Up until a week or so ago, it seemed certain Ottawa and the Edmonton Oilers would be well positioned to chose first or second, pretty much guaranteeing the two basement-dwellers one of TSN’s top picks: big Swedish defenceman Adam Larsson or WHL star Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

Picking third or fourth would hardly be a disaster, as also available this June will be slick Quebec centre Sean Couturier and another Swede, Gabriel Landeskog, who has been playing in the OHL.

 

The Curse of the Former Avs continues...

Teemu Selanne had three goals and two assists, rookie Cam Fowler scored the tiebreaking power-play goal early in the third period, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-4 Monday night for their eighth victory in 10 games.

 

Bertuzzi was ejected from a game for a head shot.

Red Wings forward Todd Bertuzzi has been called for a 5-minute elbowing penalty and a game misconduct against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Bertuzzi hit Blackhawks forward Ryan Johnson in the head 5:17 into Monday night's game.

Johnson went down to his knees and gloves for a while before slowly getting up. He went off the ice and toward the dressing room, but played later in the first period.

 

There is a College player looking for a new team.

Stephane Da Costa is flying to Toronto on Monday morning. By Wednesday, he should have a new home.

Therefore, if Da Costa took the full bonus structure, he'd have a $3.75-million cap hit for next season - just like Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin for example. That would probably prevent him from signing with, say, Boston or Pittsburgh. So if he really wants to go to one of those teams, he'll have to drop some of those bonuses.
