Noon Player Notes in the Draft (Feb 25)

The Toronto Maple Leafs are saying that forward Tyler Bozak is a game-time decision, ahead of the game against the Montreal Canadiens tonight. Reports suggest that he may be a healthy scratch to protect him as an asset for the trade deadline, which clicks over on Wednesday afternoon. The Leafs are in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, but Bozak hasn't featured very much lately and he could very well be on the block to help improve the team in a hockey deal (player for player).

Brenda & Seward would love to know if their player is going to see some time on the ice tonight or get moved, either way, there is some positives in there somewhere.  The duo has dropped down to 6th place with a slow week and they need 22 points to get back into the money.  Could a trade help turn them around?

The Pittsburgh Penguins are outside tonight and they have a couple of lineup question marks ahead of the Stadium Series game against the Flyers. The oft-injured Kris Letang is a game-time decision tonight, as he is dealing with an upper-body injury (again!) and on a positive note, Justin Schultz is also a game-time decision, as he could return from a concussion tonight.  Of course, we likely won't know about either player until closer to puck drop, but this is something to keep an eye out for.

Mike goes into the game with 2 points in the outdoor games pool, but could miss Letang, while Jeremy has 3 points and could get Schultz back tonight, which would be a good swing for his team.  Marcie, the mini-game leader, has no players tonight, so the more players make it more interesting, no doubt.
