No way, Jose: Theodore, the owner of a 2-3, 3.68 GAA, .877 save pct. slate, will continue to watch from Colorado's pine.

Jose Theodore will not be in the lineup tonight against the Capitals. The former Hart Trophy winner, earning $5.5 million this season, will be a backup for the second consecutive game. Second-year player Peter Budaj will get another start, with coach Joel Quenneville rewarding his strong play in goal Monday in a 6-1 victory over the Kings.

In a series of individual meetings with players and in his remarks after yesterday's practice, coach Tom Renney made it clear that several Rangers will spend tonight's home game against Florida and the four-game Western road trip that follows it playing for their spots on the roster. Defensemen Darius Kasparaitis, Karel Rachunek and Marek Malik clearly are under the microscope.

Wayne Gretzky was only joking the other day when he told reporters that if the Coyotes keep losing that he might become the first NHL owner to fire himself as head coach. On Tuesday, he made it clear that he is not considering taking such a drastic measure, even though his team has limped to a 2-8-0-0 start in his second season.

A center for his entire life, Eric Lindros will play right wing for the foreseeable future. Stars coach Dave Tippett said he and his coaching staff have spent a lot of time talking with Lindros to make sure he understands what they're trying to do with him.

Panthers coach Jacques Martin is sending a message to right wing Nathan Horton this week. And he is doing it without saying a word. Martin moved Horton all the way down to the fourth line after Horton's costly second-period penalty during Monday's 6-3 loss to Atlanta. And Horton practiced with the fourth line on Tuesday before the team flew to New York for tonight's game against the Rangers.
  -- Miami Herald

Devils rookie center Travis Zajac, sidelined with a bruised left hip and thigh area, missed his second game and took yesterday off. He will practice with the team today.
  -- Newark Star-Ledger

The Red Wings almost always spend part of practices working on special teams, but their eight-game power-play drought rendered Tuesday's trials especially important. The Wings are trying to figure out how to make sure top point men Nicklas Lidstrom and Mathieu Schneider can get their shots through.
