If you were a part of the Montreal Canadiens organization, would you want Andrei Markov to play for Russia in the world championships? - Jeffrey DaponteI would not allow Andrei Markov to participate at the world championships. Instead I would make sure that he takes all the time needed to rebuild his strength and be back next year at 100 per cent. It will be tough for Markov, though, as this world championships determines the ranking for the next Olympics which are held in Russia [in 2014]. He no doubt will feel a lot of pressure to compete for his country.2. If the Calgary Flames are to be a playoff team and Stanley Cup contender, who is their most important piece to the puzzle? - Dylan YankeThe usual suspects, Jarome Iginla and Miikka Kiprusoff, will have to continue to be their best players. But even more so than those two I think their depth guys have to find a way to come through. Curtis Glencross has been great, but they still need to see more from David Moss, Alex Tanguay and Matt Stajan. Overall just be a hard team to play against on a consistent basis and they have a chance to make the playoffs.3. Since the NHL is about to re-align teams and change the schedule somewhat, why can't it go back to the days when all the teams played each other the same number of times? Even though there would be a lot of travel for many teams, it would create many more rivalries and therefore more exciting hockey. Do you agree? - Craig ReidRivalries to me are created in the playoffs so changing the divisions won't necessarily bring more rivalries. I do like the fact that every team should play in every building at least once. I just think it's good for the fans to see every team and the stars that play around the league. Travel is a huge issue for teams. One reason being the demand on the players physically and mentally and another is the cost that some teams have compared to others. No matter which way you create divisions, the bottom line is there will be differences between teams when it comes to travel simply because of geography, but if the NHL can eliminate some costs to owners that will be their primary focus.4. Cory Schneider has better numbers than Roberto Luongo and the Vancouver Canucks seem to play better with Schneider in net. Should they start Schneider more often? - Dustin BakkenThe Vancouver Canucks have a great situation in that they have two quality goaltenders. My guess is that if Luongo slips at all during the playoffs Schneider will be in. But until then, he is your guy.5. Do you feel that, like the Leafs, the Oilers should fire their coaching staff and start again from scratch? - Rae NeveuWhen it comes to the Edmonton Oilers, this year was still considered a development year and expectations were lower because of the young group they have. Next year, however, there will be more expectations from outside and from within, and I do believe the leash may be shorter for Tom Renney next year, like it would be for any Edmonton Oilers coach in the same situation.
