I lost a lengthy (and 80 percent completed) blog this morning to a computer freeze-up, so I will have to rewrite it from scratch. This will serve as a placeholder in the interim. The blog should be finished around 11 AM and will cover:

Here's the latest on the status of Claude Giroux during the lockout.
* Sport Express in Russia has reported that Avangard Omsk is out of the running for Giroux at this point after talks stalled. The team has instead signed Winnipeg Jets captain Andrew Ladd.

A lot of us, myself included, assumed Danny Briere would go back to the Swiss League during the lockout.
Turns out, he and Claude Giroux are headed the Germany to play for EisbÃ¤ren Berlin in the Deutsche Eishiockey Liga (DEL).
Briere texted CSNPhilly.com this morning with the news.
âNo other comment,â Briere said.
