CALGARY -- A few news items from today while I slept and the Sabres skipped the morning skate:
*Ottawa owner Eugene Melnyk unleashed an insensitive terrorist attack on anyone who thinks his 13th-place team needs a makeover.
"Anybody that says we should blow up this organization should get their own bomb and go blow themselves up," Melnyk said at a news conference today. "This is not an organization that is completely crippled. It needs fine tuning, it needs some tweaking, it needs a player here, a player there, a few good bounces and that's it. But we are nowhere near that type of environment."
*The Red Wings have signed Henrik Zetterberg to a 12-year, $72 million contract extension.
*Tampa goalie Olie Kolzig needs surgery and is out for the rest of the season, and maybe his career is over.
*The Calgary Herald has folks pick the winner for tonight's Sabres-Flames game. My prediction? The game lasts at least 60 minutes, someone earns two points and I cough a lot during it.
