Crickets yesterday … Pens to target Gonchar … McQuaid had 2 surgeries … Beauty shootout goal

  • TSN: Bill Daly said he hadn’t spoken with Steve Fehr as of yesterday evening.

    “Nothing today,” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Associated Press in an email Sunday night. “Don’t know whether we will speak before the holiday.”

    They spoke on Saturday, but nothing came out of the talks.

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Garrioch notes that if the NHL season gets underway, to not expect Sergei Gonchar to finish the season with the Senators. The Pittsburgh Penguins may target Gonchar, who is in the last year of his deal that will pay him $5.5 million. League sources are saying the Penguins are looking to bring him back. Penguins GM Ray Shero didn’t want to lose Gonchar before, but wouldn’t go to 3 years like the Senators did. The Sens won’t want to just give him away. Their blueline will already be without Jared Cowen, who had season ending hip surgery.
  • Boston Globe: Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid had 2 surgeries in October and would have been out until sometime in January, maybe February. He had one surgery for a blood clot under his collarbone and another surgery a couple weeks later to hopefully help prevent another one. A rib was removed and part of his neck muscle.
