I can't believe they haven't found the "fan" who threw banana yet. He (I'm assuming this person is a man) should be scared ****less.

I'm rooting for Mancari. Not on the waivers list so looks to have a spot on the Canucks at least until Kesler gets back.

Nice to see hockey at the Mile One Centre after a brief absence, and it's still pretty surreal to actually see the Jets again.

And not to toot my own horn, but two kids I loved from the previous draft are still with their teams and look pretty good (Scheifele and Zibanejad).
I still think that both need to return to their respective leagues, but they are making the brass of their NHL clubs think twice about sending them back.

Scheifele in particular has been absolutely electric at times, both against players his own age and NHL/AHL players.
His hockey sense is great and his consistently positive attitude and work ethic will ultimately lead him to success in the NHL.

I feel that it's going to be awesome from the Rangers perspective with Torts but mediocre with the Flyers because of Laviolette. Guess we'll wait and see but I can't wait to see a crazy Torts rant.

The Flyers/Rangers game tonight is nasty. It's like it's the playoffs. Sestito is going to get a 5+ game suspension for a pretty blatant hit from behind. Philly is running out of goons.

Quote:
The Montreal Canadiens signed defenceman Chris Campoli to a US$1.75-million, one-year contract on Monday.

The Toronto native had 21 points in 77 games with Ottawa and Chicago last season.

A restricted free agent following the season, the 27-year-old Campoli was unable to come to terms with the Blackhawks.

He became an unrestricted free agent in late July when Chicago general manager Stan Bowman walked away from a $2.5 million arbitrator's settlement, a formality that was negotiated before Campoli's arbitration hearing once it became clear that a deal wouldn't get done.

Montreal GM Pierre Gauthier said the move had nothing to do with the questionable health of all-star defenceman Andrei Markov and did not suggest he was dissatisfied with the performance of any defence prospects in camp".

Any time there's an experienced player that can help your club you look at it," said Gauthier. "In this case, Mr. Campoli is an experienced player and he can play various roles on your defence, so we feel he's a good addition.

Connolly's hurt already.

http://www.thestar.com/sports/hockey...pre-game-skate

Quote:
Connolly, 31, tumbled head first into the end boards behind the net during Monday’s practice. It took a few moments for the former Buffalo Sabre to get back onto his skates but he remained on the ice and finished practice.
Quote:
“He’s a little banged up from the crash into the boards so he’s taking the day off,” Wilson said after practice at the MasterCard Centre before the team boarded a flight to Ottawa for their pre-season game against the Senators.

It's in the Around the NHL thread. Some part of me wants to feel bad for the guy, but damn, there's something horribly comical about it.

Didn't see it there. Isn't it worthy of it's own thread? Everybody is just waiting to say I told you so to Leafs fan.
Personally I think he plays 65 games and gets like 50 points. All of it with a very soft game. I guess that's worth $4.75 million today.

Nah. Tim Connolly getting hurt is definitely worthy of its own thread. Guy doesn't even play for us anymore.

Cool story I found off Puck Daddy:
Connected by Facebook, Islanders Prospect Joins Fans for Night of Roller Hockey
http://slapshot.blogs.nytimes.com/20...roller-hockey/

Quote:
Shawn Shea, a 29-year-old engineer from Amityville on Long Island, was looking for a few players for a pickup roller hockey game last month. Then he remembered that he was Facebook friends with Kirill Kabanov, the skilled right wing from Russia the Islanders selected in the third round of the 2010 draft.

“I figured,” Shea said, “it couldn’t hurt to ask.”

The Facebook messaging between fan and potential world-class ringer went like this:

Shea: “We’re playing in Massapequa Park.”

Kabanov: “I don’t have roller skates.”

Shea: “You don’t need them. Come on down anyway if you can.”

Kabanov: “Ok. I’ll come for sure.”
Anyone else jealous?

Short of a season/career-threatening injury, I agree.

Pronger's always good for a soundbite, then you've got Talbot, Hartnell and Jagr. I think it'll be good TV for sure.

Doughty finally signs - eight years, 56 million. Being a fan of L.A., I'm happy, though this makes the Myers deal look all the sweeter.

Pssshhhh. Didn't you read the trade boards? That's where I learned that Myers isn't half the player Doughty is.

Once again proving he's not really a NHL player. Somebody should tweet this info to Gleason. I would, however, take Kennedy on the Amerks. He could help their center depth.

Would be nice to see him on the Amerks. He's not going to make it in the NHL, that's for sure.

Yeah, right? Yeesh.

I actually agreed that Doughty was the better player, but the indignant dismissals that Myers' was a player of similar caliber were humorous. Lots of mentioning of tiers and whatnot.

I'd love to see the Sabres pick up Kennedy for the Amerks. As much as people question his talent at the NHL level (I still think he can play at this level in a limited role), he did get screwed by Quinn and company. Pegula seems like the kind of guy who likes to make things right. It would be good for everyone involved if it happened: bringing Kennedy close to home, righting Quinn's wrong, bringing forward depth to the organization, and perhaps more importantly, giving the Amerks some much-needed offense.

Not sure of the logistics and all that, of course.

On an unrelated note - Jagr picks up four goals in three preseason games? If the guy can still play all-star hockey (too soon to say for sure, yet, but hey) the Flyers might be the team to beat in the East. Bryz should lock up the nets for them, and IMO that's the only thing that kept them from a Cup in 2010 (and maybe a deeper run last year, too).
