Adam Larsson spent Thursday night in the press box as a healthy scratch. He called this probably his "toughest healthy scratch." [Fire and Ice]

Just more records for Jaromir:

Seriously, how can you not love this guy:

Marty wants to go out on his own terms. [Sportsnet]

So this happened yesterday:

If this is really happening (and it sure looks like it will), I'm really excited to see how the league explains this one. There's a lot of fun stuff that goes along with this.

Remember: Pronger is still on LTIR with the Flyers. He is still an employee of the Flyers organization. Now he will also be an employee of the NHL. Um, does anyone else see a problem here? Nope? No, we're all good, nothing to see here.

This is not even to mention: 1) the open cap circumvention that's happening here, and 2) Chris Pronger working in the Department of Player Safety? Is it April 1 already? The same Chris Pronger that was suspended for several especially nasty incidents? That Chris Pronger?


Nick Cotsonika says Pronger wouldn't rule on Flyers issues. OK, great. But what about other teams? The other teams that, you know, play the Flyers occasionally?

And what about the CBA violation that this poses?

You tell it, Brooksie:

So, yeah, the NHL made the wrong move in hiring Chris Pronger. [Bleacher Report]

OK, I'll get off my soapbox now. On to other news.

Evander Kane left the Jets game against the Coyotes with a lower-body injury. [PHT]

Injury woes continue for the Rangers: They've lost Dan Boyle for a few weeks due to a broken hand. [PHT]
