Parise not advising Perry

Zach Parise, who went through what Corey Perry went through last year (last year of deal), said he had no advice for the Ducks’ potential free agent.

“I don’t want to tamper,” Parise said, laughing. “It’s just such a hard thing. He’s got to do what he thinks is best and not listen to anybody else. It’s a hard call to make during the season. For me, the best thing to do was wait ‘til everything was done so you can really analyze it.

“When you’re able to get away from everything, that’s when you can really do some good thinking.”

 

Award voters only seeing one side

Jeff Carter, red-hot in Los Angeles, was named Third Star of the Week last Monday. Kings coach Darryl Sutter cracked, “It’s good they’re watching guys in the West once in a while.”

In all honesty, a big concern this season should be end-of-the-year award voting. Members of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association are given the task to vote for most the awards, but it’s no easy task in a season where east writers are only seeing east teams and vice versa.

For instance, many writers in the East did midseason selections a week ago and nowhere did I see Ryan Suter or Jonas Brodin listed as Norris or Calder Trophy contenders.

 

Old dog, new trick

Vancouver’s Henrik Sedin is so bad in shootouts, he has only taken three in his career. Thursday he sealed a victory against Nashville with a penalty-shot goal. He joked that coach Alain Vigneault first begged the ref for a power play instead.

“Honestly, I didn’t think he was going to score,” goalie Roberto Luongo said. “I’ve never seen him score in practice.”
