Globe hockey columnist Eric Duhatschek and Leafs reporter James Mirtle join Darren Yourk to talk how the New Jersey Devils will deal with the news that star left wing Zach Parise will be out three months with a knee injury and how Toronto Maple Leafs will do without captain Dion Phaneuf.
The Hockey Roundtable also discusses the struggles of the Buffalo Sabres and Calgary Flames so far this season. Is Lindy Ruff's job in jeopardy? Is this the year Jarome Iginla gets dealt?
There's also reaction to Daniel Briere's comments to the media following his three-game suspension and a suggestion it might be time for the Boston Bruins to consider trading goaltender Tim Thomas.
