Jean- Pierre Elik & Aris Reekie to play together again?

Elik has hinted that he may want to play with his old Nashville linemate one more time. Reekie and Elik were drafted to Nashville in the same year when Reekie was 17 and Elik was 19. The two played on the same line together on the Predators for 9 seasons before they both resigned with different teams. Both found more success on other teams then they did with Nashville as Reekie won a Stanley Cup with the Prowlers and Elik with Boston. "I would really like a chance to play with him (Reekie) again," Elik stated last week "We never could pull it together with Nashville, maybe we could do it with someone else."

Elik is a free agent this season and Reekie has 1 year left on his contract with the Minnesota Wild.

Sid Skivolocke to play 1 last season?

Skivolocke who played out his contract for Dakota had said he wished to retire at the end of Season 40. At 41-years old Skivolocke is 6th all-time in wins with 721 career wins, but Skivolocke is the best goaltender to never win a Cup. Spending his career with Florida, Winnipeg and St. John's before coming to the North Stars last season Skivy just never was able to bring home a Cup. "I have played for some good teams," said Skivolocke "We could just never seem to take it all the way."

After 42-year old Murray Kasparaitis won his first and only Stanley Cup before he retired last season, Skivy says he's thinking about trying the same. "I want to play one more season with a team that has a shot at the Cup," he said in a news conference. "I just want one more shot."
