Manny Malhotra skated for the sixth straight day today.

 

Patrice Bergeron also skated and looks to be progressing. He left before the contact began, but could be back for game three or four if he continues to improve at this rate.

 

Gates has posted his Top 100 Roto Players for May. Access it by clicking here, or on the left hand side of the home page.

 

Mikael Granlund had an absolutely awesome World Championships. His value dropped a bit after missing a few months last season due to a concussion, but he appears to be back on track (and then some).

 

Jason Demers was a no go for the Sharks last night - minor injury. Kent Huskins took his spot. No word on Demer's availability for game two.

 

Calgary has extended Curtis Glencross for four years (at a cap hit of $2.5 million per). Not a bad contract for a versatile depth scorer who brings a lot to the table. There would have been no shortage of offers had Glencross waited until July 1st.

 

Joe Thornton had a strong first period for the Sharks, but the best forward from start to finish was definitely Logan Couture.

 

@dtolensky: Since the benching vs Chicago, Roberto Luongo has won six of his last eight starts, allowing just 14 goals on 225 shots- 1.58 GAA, .938 SVP.

 

Ryane Clowe still isn't right from the Kronwall hit - he was not his usual self in terms of physical involvement.

 

Can't believe I missed this a few days ago. Is Radulov really going to return? Perhaps Dobber's April Fools joke will indeed come true...

Glencross cont. I couldn't agree more with Larry and Sanstanya. Glencross's contract is going to be the straw that breaks Calgary's back. Unless there is a trade it virtually eliminates the possibility of Tanguay resigning in Calgary unless he gives them a discount because he likes playing with Iginla. Without Tanguay or another playmaker of his caliber Iggy goes back to being his pedestrian 69 point self of the 2009/10 season. Yes, the cap hit is not bad, it's the no movement clause that's the killer. With Iginla, Kiprusoff, Langkow, Jokinen, Glencross, Regehr and Sarich with NMC, and Stajan, Bourque, Kotalik and Bouwmeester with NTC for the 2011/12 season, Feaster is pretty well handcuffed against improving the Flames by trade or even starting a rebuild. As a Calgary resident, here's to looking towards the 2012/13 season, that's if Langkow, Hagman, Jokinen, Moss and Sarich are allowed to walk next season.

@Larry Everything you said plus the Flames seem to want to give away no-trade-clauses like cheap caramels at Halloween.

I believe Glencross' contract will replace Tanguay's expiring NTC contract to keep them in double-digits. Seriously no reasonably managed team has 10 active NTC/NMC's at a time.

glencross Im not a fan of the glencross contract- 4yrs,NMC and 2.5per? No doubt someone wouldve given him that- or even possibly more- but the Flames have cap issues- and they have alot of mediocre 2nd liners/3rd liners making 2.5-3.5 mil. Without any buyouts (the only real option I see is Hagman-would save 1.5mil) and with Kotalik staying in the minors, this still prevents them from anymore signings for much more than 1mil/player, meaning Tanguay,Morrison and Babchuk are likely gone. I wouldve brought Tanguay and Morrison back before Glencross. Glencross scored over 20 goals for the first time at 28yrs old- the room for improvement is slight. Compare this contract to Grabners- $3mil for 5yrs- makes Grabner look like the steal of the century- and there is still room for Grabner to improve.

The Flames may not be saddled with a Gomez/Drury albatross of a contract- but they have alot of players making .5-1mil too much,its like theyre paying their entire roster for having a career year-and they didnt make the playoffs! The flames also dont have anyone on a cheap entry level contract-in fact I would say the only bargain on their roster is Jackman at $500k. With a weak collection of prospects, Feaster has his work cut out for him. They will be lucky to make the playoffs for the next few years while they wait for the current deals to expire over the next 2-3yrs.

Radulov Still owes the Preds a year of service on the last contract he signed w/them before "defecting".

Radulov So if the off chance Radulov does come back. Is he negotiating a new contract with the Preds or is he still under contract from when he left? What was his contract when he left? This could seriously affect what they will do with Weber, Suter and Rinne going forward.
