Perhaps there will always be some bad blood among the dominant forces in the women’s game. Canada beat the United States for the gold at the World Championships, and Team USA players immediately drew some harsh criticism against Canada for diving. The Edmonton Papers are starting to focus on the former Pittsburgh Penguin winger as the right player for the Oilers, who need another striker. Sammi Silber has provided a full accounting of Washington Capitals’ current terminal including potential needs in the NHL trade block, and we have updated former Penguins UFAs that remain unsigned.
A little note about our story from yesterday’s sources. I’ve seen it get quoted by third parties, always like these stories. This part is appreciated. However, some outlets got it wrong in our report. PHN did mention that Zach Aston-Reese is waiting for the perfect situation. We reported some interested teams, but if He is waiting for an ideal situation, which will be an opportunity to become the player caught by the Penguins (the possibility of scoring a third line), and not just a defensive specialist.
Nor have we been told that Ivan Rodriguez is waiting for the perfect situation. I think one writer crossed some wires and others put the assembly together not the original. I’m just setting things straight.
