Before the start tonight’s rivalry game between the Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers on NBCSN, Bob McKenzie sat down to talk about a wide array of hot topics in the NHL. As you might suspect, Marc-Andre Fleury’s newly inked four-year extension and the Anaheim Ducks’ injury woes in goal came up.
One of the most interesting statements McKenzie made was the idea that the Ducks might sign free agent goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov. He’s a controversial choice after his disastrous tenure with the Philadelphia Flyers, but he got his start with Anaheim and the team feels comfortable with him.
St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko’s upcoming contract negotiations were also discussed as his value continues to rise thanks to his explosive start.
