Maple Leafs' Kessel says Phaneuf unfairly blamed

Tuesday, 03.03.2015 / 3:36 PM / News

Alain Poupart - NHL.com Correspondent

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Toronto Maple Leafs center Phil Kessel came to the defense of captain Dion Phaneuf on Tuesday, saying Phaneuf has been unfairly criticized by the media.

In a scrum after the morning skate, Kessel was asked whether the uncertainty surrounding the NHL Trading Deadline, which passed Monday afternoon, had gotten to him. Big changes were predicted for the Maple Leafs, but the team did not touch the core players, which include Kessel and Phaneuf. Forward David Clarkson was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday for injured forward Nathan Horton.

"No, but I'm disappointed today," Kessel said. "The way the media treats Dion Phaneuf in [Toronto] is embarrassing. I think a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves. I'm embarrassed for them. I don't think anyone deserves to be treated like that."

Monday, 03.02.2015 / 5:19 PM / News

NHL.com

Calgary Flames captain Mark Giordano needs surgery to repair a torn biceps tendon and will not play again this season.

"He looked at every avenue to not go through with that procedure and see if he can keep playing and see if there's a time where it settles down over time. But we're not going to risk anything with him. There is no opportunity for him to play. This is the only measure that's left," Flames general manager Brad Treliving said Monday on Sportsnet. "Obviously that's not the news we wanted to hear, but that's what will happen."

Recovery time is expected to be four to five months.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
