*Our most sincere condolences to the entire Schultz family on the passing of Mr. Schultz on Sept. 1.
*A big how-how to the NHLNetwork for picking up some of the games from the Traverse City, MI rookies camp (including those of the Minnesota Wild) next week. As bad as people seem to be jonesing for hockey action, this one seems like a no-brainer - but props to them for doing the right thing.
*Wild fans are getting pretty antsy about the Gaborik contract situation - and with good reason. But let's not strap DR and JL to the rack just yet, shall we?
*Lang to the Habs...obviously Montreal is gearing up for a run at the sublime (as winning the big mug in the year when they celebrate their 100th year of existence would most certainly be). That Pittsburgh vs. Montreal ECF series is going to be awesome.
*Also, good on the Habs for moving on from the Sundin waffle-fest. I have nothing against a player without a contract taking his time in deciding what he wants to do. But one gets the sense the Habs are going to be very happy they got out of that soap opera when they did.
