Bag of Pucks - Reimer practices, a fit in Edmonton?
James Reimer practiced with the Toronto Maple Leafs, just a day after leaving the game early against the Carolina Hurricanes. Reimer was hit in the head by teammate Josh Leivo and couldn’t continue. This situation was scary for the Leafs, following the hit that Reimer took from Montreal Canadiens forward a few seasons ago. Trade him or play him, he still has value for the Leafs.

Stoney Point - October 18, 2013 - James Reimer practiced with the Toronto Maple Leafs, just a day after leaving the game early against the Carolina Hurricanes. Reimer was hit in the head by teammate Josh Leivo and couldn’t continue. This situation was scary for the Leafs, following the hit that Reimer took from Montreal Canadiens forward a few seasons ago. Trade him or play him, he still has value for the Leafs.

YAK TO BUFFALO? – Rumours flying across the internet that Nail Yakupov could be on his way from the Edmonton Oilers to the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Ryan Miller or Thomas Vanek or both. While both Miller and Vanek are decent players, I cant see this deal having any legs. My money is on Yakupov staying with the Oilers.

PAX OUT FOR THREE WEEKS - The Montreal Canadiens will be without forward Max Pacioretty for three weeks. The team has announced that Pacioretty has a strained hamstring and will be out to recover. He has had a tough start to his season with a wrist injury before this.

CLARKSON CLOSE TO RETURN – Leafs forward David Clarkson has served eight of his ten game suspension since leaving the bench during a pre-season melee with the Buffalo Sabres. Clarkson can return a week today when the Buds travel to Columbus to take on the Blue Jackets. Rumour has it that HometownHockey columnist Tim Cornett will be in attendance that night and will have a full report. Leafs are 6-2-0 without Clarkson and sit fifth in the NHL.

NICE TO SEE – Canadiens tough guy George Parros skated today with the Habs, as reported in the Montreal Gazette. Nice to see him back on the ice and hope to see him in game action soon. Parros was knocked out in a nasty fall in a fight with Leafs enforcer Colton Orr.

REIMER, NOT MILLER? – With all the talk about Miller going to Edmonton, what about Reimer being moved to the Oilers? Perhaps you package up Reimer with one of the extra defencemen the Leafs have in exchange for some offensive help. Might be dreaming here, but what about Reimer, Jake Gardiner and a high pick for Yakupov and a lower pick. Yak could get his #10 in Toronto.
