Bad news - according to HNIC last night, Jacques Lemaire will return as coach of the Wild next season. For fantasy hockey to really get exciting, we need Lemaire, Wilson and anyone named Sutter away from coaching hockey. Goals, please!
Philippe Boucher will not play today, but Stu Barnes is questionable. Matt Niskanen will be back and Mark Fistric will be scratched.
Don Waddell is out as GM of Atlanta. He will be asked to stay on board in another capacity, but there are big changes ahead for the Thrashers. This was a political move to show their franchise player that they are serious about making changes.
The Denver Post is kicking around the idea that Patrick Roy could be interviewed to be the next coach of the Avs.
According to the Star-Tribune, Blake Wheeler announced on Friday that he will not return to the Gophers next season in hopes of landing a pro contract. Wheeler is ranked 26th on my fantasy rankings, but will still not play for the Coyotes this season - he's probably not ready. Next year.
