Daley should be back monday but I can't help to think they'll try and flip a guy like Wandell for some depth on D from a team like Colorado.
The parts of the game I watched Philip Larsen was continuing his nervous streak. Perhaps the injuries on the D-line can give him an opportunity to focus more on being a defensively sound d-man, but I fear the uncertainty and rotation will harm a young guy trying to hard.
GREAT DANISH NIGHT BTW! Eller's freaking flying. Very excited to see the line-up once B. Gallagher returns. Boedker had a good game IMO even though it wasn't his best this year. He's less than a degree or two from a goal and is still doing a lot of the small things great. If we take his forechecking as an example - many times he uses his speed to force a rushed pass out of the d-man starting the transition. Last night the Phoenix D did a poor job of winning the puck battles following but it's an example of Boedker adding more than just what shows up on the score sheet. IMO he's joined the battle for best Dane in the NHL. NYI and Frans Nielsen got a win. Ditto DAL and Philip Larsen - and btw less TOI for Philip Larsen might not be the worst thing right now.
Actually quite incredible that Dallas still manages to win with this backline chaos (6-4 in the last 10). Shame that Larsen appears rattled by all this.
Really hope that Eller can stay with Galchenyuk (and Cole?) when Gallagher comes back; but with recent Montreal history he could still be moved back to 4'th line?! At least Montreal now have increased his trading value a lot if that is their plan (or if they get an offer they can't refuse).
Anyone has some idea of the rumour he might go to Columbus? What would Montreal demand from Eller and what will people trade him for?
