Sidney Crosby hoping for NHL develop better goal line technology. While they’re at it can it get made retroactive to Wednesday? [Post-Gazette]

Corey Perry, Dallas Star. Nope, still doesn’t sound right. They’re still getting used to it in Dallas too, especially since his on-ice season just began. [Defending Big D]

Power Rankings

  • 12th — though I don’t think they quite nailed the team’s most pressing management decision. [Sportsnet]
  • 13th — with an interesting stat that 1st periods we haven’t seen many goals for or against for the Pens so far this season. [NHL]

Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon have had their latest annual Tim Horton’s commercial drop. [NHL]

And from around the league..

You guys are never going to believe this — after a crappy start to the season (no goals, one assist, a -5 in eight games pre-last night’s game) Derrick Brassard has been bumped from center to the left wing in a desperate, and possibly last-chance situation to try and find some offense by the Islanders. So that experiment is going EXACTLY to schedule now in Act II. Should we tell them how the play ends? [Lighthouse House]

10 games into another rebuilding season and hemorrhaging goals against, some Detroit Red Wing fans are already running out of patience. [Winging it in Motown]

For next week’s opponent, defenseman Ivan Provorov is having a nice bounce-back season already in Philly. [Broad Street Hockey]

The Senators are looking for forward depth help now after suffering a few injuries. [Silver Seven Sens]

Ian Cole is shaping up to be a great mentor for youngster Cale Makar. [The Athletic]
