    While the left wing job is up in the air, reports indicate that Wojtek Wolski is the frontrunner to play alongside Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik. Can the large but often soft winger take advantage of this golden opportunity, though?

    Matt Duchene has produced remarkably similar stats to John Tavares, who went two picks higher in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. Perhaps that’s why he’s asking for a remarkably similar second contract.

    Oct 4, 2011, 11:28 AM EDT

    New York Rangers v Philadelphia Flyers

    Detroit Red Wings v Phoenix Coyotes - Game Four

    People have vastly underestimated Phoenix over the last two seasons and the Coyotes have consistently exceeded expectations. But without Ilya Bryzgalov around and question marks in net, is this the season when the Coyotes fall from the playoff race?
