Of course it was a typo. :p

He has earned the right to enter camp as the number one, but if Labarbera outworks him in camp and earns the number one job so be it. Not putting a lot of hope in that happening.

The D has the potential to be average this year. It will come down to a combination of Eakins' reputation for fostering talent combined with hopefully a surprise or two in camp.

It seemed like the goal that trickled off his mask and over the back in the Olympics crushed him. A little insight into Salo off-ice. He used to come in and play blackjack at the casino downtown. He was always quiet, but friendly before those Olympics. Afterwards it was like he was Pigpen. Still quiet and polite, but it was like he had a cloud of bad vibes hanging over his head and he was just in a funk.
