Daniel Sedin shining in tough start for Canucks

Eight games into the season and the Vancouver Canucks, to many a Stanley Cup favorite before the first puck dropped earlier this month, are 3-3-2.

Daniel Sedin said Monday on NHL Live! that he thinks the team is heading in the right direction after a 5-1 win against Minnesota last Friday. The Canucks host Colorado on Tuesday, their only game this week.

"We have a lot of new guys that came in this season and it's going to take time to get everyone on the same page," Sedin said on the show. "It's been up and down, but I think we're on the right track."

Sedin certainly has been on the right track, with team-highs of 7 goals and 11 points. Only Steven Stamkos has more points (15), and only Stamkos and Marian Hossa have more goals, with 8.

Healthy Hossa off to sizzling start for Hawks

A healthy knee and some serious bling have given Marian Hossa the chance to feel as relaxed as he's ever been on the ice.

Chicago is lovin' it.

"A couple of years ago in Atlanta I had a similar start, but definitely I feel healthy, I feel relaxed and I'm playing with a great centerman and a great wing," Hossa told Thursday. "I feel much lighter on the ice and I'm having more fun on the ice, but I try not to make a big deal out of it. It's only eight games."

Yeah, but it's a League-best 7 goals and 4 assists in those eight games, all with Jonathan Toews in the middle and fellow Slovak Tomas Kopecky on the left. Hossa hasn't been this prolific at the start of a season since 2006, when with the Thrashers he flew out of the gates, scoring 10 goals and dishing out 5 assists to help Atlanta jump out to a 7-1-1 start.

Lehtonen relishing fresh start in Dallas

For Kari Lehtonen, life does begin at 26.

Life didn't start for the big Finnish goaltender in 2002, when the Atlanta Thrashers made him the second pick of the draft. It didn't even begin in 2006-07, when he posted a 34-24-9 record for the Thrashers as they made it to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the only time in franchise history. It took a trade to Dallas last season to add new meaning to his life.

"My life had kind of been turned around for me," Lehtonen said. "I had played all my life for Atlanta. I was getting calls from my agent. He was hearing rumors of my being traded. So I wasn't shocked, but still, it was hard to leave the only team I ever played for.

"It took me a couple months. But I adjusted. It was a change that I didn't know I needed. It may have seemed unthinkable at the time."

A fixture in Denver, Stastny indispensable to Avs

Paul Stastny and the Colorado Avalanche have been through this before.

As they prepare to wrap a five-game road trip with a three-games-in-four-nights stretch against the Devils, Rangers and Islanders, it's hard not to flash back to last October and a seven-game trek that changed the entire outlook of their season. The Avalanche, coming off a last-place finish in the Western Conference, went 4-1-2 and kept on winning games all the way into the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"No one really likes these road trips, but any time you get a 10-day road trip you like to do it early in the season," Stastny told during a tour he and a few of his teammates made through the League's Manhattan offices Wednesday. "I think everyone's fresh and mentally everyone's ready, and at the same time it's a good bonding experience for the team and the players."
