Scheifele, Johansen demoted; Rob Zombie on Flyers movie; panic in New York? (Puck Headlines) (Puck Daddy)

Here are your Puck Headlines: a glorious collection of news and views collected from the greatest blogosphere in sports and the few, the proud, the mainstream hockey media. • Found him! The KFC Fan Cam spotted Waldo in attendance at last night's game between the Sharks and the Blackhawks. But they failed to find his walking stick, kettle, coffee cup, and binoculars. [ Reddit ] • The Winnipeg Jets have returned Mark Scheifele to junior, which is great news for the Barrie Colts! [ Buzzing the Net ] • Meanwhile, the Columbus Blue Jackets have sent Ryan Johansen to the AHL, a move that had Damien Cox and Marc Spector wondering how the Jackets were able to bust a top prospect down to the minors without the city's hockey media going crazy. That would never happen in Toronto. But why? What is the difference between Columbus and Toronto? Does anybody know? [ Blue Jackets Xtra ] • The New York Rangers are 4-5. Is it time to panic? Bad news, panic-lovers: it isn't. [ NY Post ] • How Roberto Luongo could be becoming the good guy in Vancouver, and Cory Schneider's agent may have inadvertently facilitated his client's heel turn. [ PITB ] • Speaking of goaltending controversies, Viktor Fasth has given Bruce Boudreau something to think about. Do you ride the hot hand in this shortened season or give Hiller the opportunity to get his game on track? [ OC Register ] • Zac Rinaldo, on his fight with B.J. Crombeen and whether he threw a few late punches: “I hit him until he was down. I’m not going to hit nobody (late) no matter who they are or what they’ve done. I’ll never hit someone when they’re down; I hit him until he was down and made sure he was down and that was it.” Man. He's like Allen Iverson and "practice". [ Philly ] • Andrew Desjardins' match penalty for his phantom hit to the head was rescinded, but Sharks coach Todd McLellan wasn't satisfied. "That doesn’t help a team that’s played a lot of hockey, needed that player and should have been on the power play for four minutes," he said. [ Mercury News ] • Worst lockout casualty ever: the NHL Awards won't be taking place in Las Vegas. Damn you, Bettman! [ ESPN ] • Great piece on Romania's top hockey team and the Hungarians that lead it. [ New York Times ]
