Firstly, let me say. There is no such thing as a "hot" Duckling, PERIOD. I am a Stars fan, and as far as I'm concerned, the only good duck, is one which is thoroughly plucked, cooked and in some sort of sauce on my plate.
What's Hot - Wayne Gretzky to appear twice as a main Wellllll... (see above); however, I am not one to judge hotness based on team affiliation. His family has a yellow lab named Henri (drool, dogs get me every time)…his favorite television shows are “CSI: Miami,” (yea) “The Sopranos” (I can understand this) and “Deadwood” (huh). His first job was as a security guard [uh, REALLY hot] for various events throughout the Montreal area where he's from. He's appeared three times on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," twice following Anaheim’s Stanley Cup run in 2003 making him the only NHL player since guest on the show, and once with Brad May and Chris Pronger the night following the Ducks’ 2007 Stanley Cup championship.
What's Hockey - In his last 10 outings he's stopped 272-of-297 shots for a .916 SV%. Recorded his 200th career NHL win on Dec. 7th vs. CBJ. Played in his 400th game as a Duck, Dec. 1st @ DET. Earned his second shutout (31st career), stopping all 35 shots on Nov. 4th @ LAK. He won the Stanley cup with the Ducks in BOTH 2003 & 2007. Is subtle, quietly good at tending goal. I know I always dread playing against him although he had a streak where the Stars could do no wrong when they sent a shot his way. That hot streak seems to have cooled, however.
Pierre-Marc Bouchard Unlikely to Return to Minnesota Wild Next Season - The Minnesota Wild have a number of free agents that general manager, Chuck Fletcher, will be needing to make difficult decisions on this coming off-season...
