Oilers

NHL

"We're in second-last in the division, so it's obviously not satisfactory. I think the way that we started we were loose, and now we've tightened up, and when you tighten up generally as a team you have trouble scoring goals. We're almost at the 20-game mark and it's obviously disappointing where we are, but I see some positives and it's a grind. We have to get some traction in terms of winning just one game or losing just one. …[The] general takeaway is general disappointment. There's your headline. But I do believe in the critical mass of the team and I do believe that we're still in it." – Edmonton Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli on his team, which is second to last in the Western Conference at 7-10-2.

Canadiens

NHL

With all the NHL to Houston expansion talk, what about Quebec City, which was a runner-up to Las Vegas? Montreal Canadiens owner Geoff Molson says that he would support an expansion team in Quebec City if the NHL and the Board of Governors decided there should be one there. Said NHL commissioner Gary Bettman at a luncheon in Montreal: "As we sit here today, we're digesting and assimilating our 31st team. We have 16 in the East, 15 in the West. We're not going to expand just to satisfy notions of symmetry. I can't tell you today that [expansion] is something we're going to run off and do."
