Pacioretty to the G. Knights so that pipe dream is gone. NHL.com says it makes them strong cup contenders. I still think they have a hole in goal.
Yzerman steps down in Tampa-hopefully that has negative repercussions for that franchise.

Letang had all offseason to train:

Glad he and his wife(smoking hot) had that second child after the hardship they went through a few Summers ago.

I'm not expecting him to be at when he was in his absolute prime, but man, if he's even 85% of that, that goes a long ways to fixing some of the issues we had last season.

He was a damn mess last season, and that impact is multiplied when you're talking about a guy playing 25 minutes per game.

Yeah, if he could be this year's version of the 'comeback' Penguin that would be great. Be nice if Schultz could duplicate his 2016/17 #'s as well this coming season.

Pretty good article on Murray. Says he spent a lot of time focusing on his glove hand and five hole. Also plans on focusing more on his relationships with teammates as he admits to getting a little too focused on playing goal.

Pageau out 6 months already. The Sens are the Spinal Tap drummers of the NHL.

I haven't paid too close attention to training camp (nor did I watch last night), but a buddy of mine was saying Riikola has looked great so far.

Can anyone comment on that?

He had a goal last night-nice shot.
There is an article on nhl.com about him having a good camp.

Pulling some defensive depth out of his hat would be yet another feather in JR's cap, definitely rooting for Riiiiiiiiicolaaaaaaa cheers at PPG this season.

I thought it was a slop-fest in the first period last night. I focused on Sprong and have to say I wasn't really that impressed. His forecheck is better but I didn't see that shot of his.
#56 looked pretty good and Jarry was really good the first two periods.

Preseason hockey isn't much to look at when the stars are not out there.

Hoping the Pens follow the theme of playing the big guns at home in the preseason and leaving the road duties for the depth.

If you're looking for encouragement, it's that the depth players have been competitive with NHL teams (though certainly not the league's best) who have been playing way more regulars than we have to this point.

Jarry let in a shitty rebound last night, but the others were tough shots, and he made some excellent saves.

Congrats to the Flyers for unveiling their new mascot today!


...which is apparently a giant, hairy, turd with the insanely applicable name of "Gritty".

Just a job well done all around.

Even Steely McBeam is looking at that thing saying "That's a dumb fucking mascot".
