The Morning Skate for Friday, May 22nd

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of being Ryan Leaf...
  • So I was reading somewhere yesterday how Cam Ward and M-A Fleury need to be considered among the young elite goalies of the NHL. Well, not so much anymore. Malkin comes alive, scores a hat trick in the Pens' 7-4 win over the Whalers. Malkin's 3rd goal was especially cute;
  • Wild decide against a MONSTER, choose Pens Asst. GM Chuck Fletcher as their next GM;
  • The Windsor Spitfires oust the Oceanic and are off to the Memorial Cup semis;
  • In today's Habs sale update, La Presse has BCE and Quebecor battling it out. BCE is said to be behind Serge Savard, but they deny everything, using the old "we don't comment on rumours" line. Mmm. that's good media spin.
Wings-Hawks back at it on Sexy Friday night.

UPDATE - yours truly is fucking up the airwaves again on CBC Daybreak at 8:15 AM. I need coffee, fast.

Malkin gets Superstar Treatment~

Quebecor must be stopped. Though of course LaPresse would say they're on it against Savard eh? Last I heard it was the Bauer guy who was on the fast track. (If GG is even selling, though I'm pretty sure he has mention many times that he's really only looking for partners, not a full sale).

What a choice! Quebecor would probably rid us of Mickey Mouse RDS, only to replace it with something equally Mickey Mouse.

I'd rather be stuck with RDS than with anything that PKP can dream up.

The thought of Quebecor owning the Canadiens is truly frightening to me.

And the list of teams that won't hire Maguire lengthens. Unfortunately. Not that I think he's GM material at all - I just want him and his voice off my TV.
