There still will be plenty of moves to come before training camps open on Sept. 12. But for now, let's take a look the seven-team Canadian contingent and the moves they have made in the past month.
Last season: Finished an impressive fourth overall at 29-14-5, but went out in the first round of the playoffs in a five...

A person familiar with the moves has told The Associated Press that the Buffalo Sabres have placed three players on waivers, including defenseman Adam Pardy.
The Sabres, on Thursday, also placed minor league forwards Nick Tarnasky and Kevin Porter on waivers, the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the moves.

Adam Pardy was a victim of circumstance in Buffalo. He and his $2 million salary been waived.
The Sabres are content to find roster spots for their own organizational prospects.
Like Shaone Morisson last season, when the music stopped, there was no seat for Pardy to sit down on.
The Sabres have also waived forwards Kevin Porter and Nick Tarnasky.
When the Sabres...
It has been reported that Buffalo have put defenseman Adam Pardy on waivers. The Sabres also waived Kevin Porter and Nick Tarnasky.

I think it'll be interesting to see whether or not he clears.
Forme Sabre Tim Connolly was also put on waivers today by the Maple Leafs.
I didn't watch the Bills game today, but was surprised to see they kept it close.
I wanted to touch on the Amerks quick. They used three third period goals last night to defeat Syracuse.
The line of Foligno (1+2), Evan Rankin (1+1) and Brian Flynn (1+1) combined for seven points on the night while Nick Tarnasky and T.J. Brennan also scored for the Amerks. Goaltender...

Jon Mirasty of Kontinental Hockey League's goon-tastic Vityaz Chekhov (translation: "shoes of the clown") has been in a lot of fights. He gets punched in the face as often as some of us use dental floss. (And seriously, people, your gums will thank you.)
But as this brief fight with Maxim Yeprev of Metallurg shows, he still has a sense of humor about it:
Vityaz Chekhov is our favorite KHL team because it's a gong-show goon squad that's three Hanson Brothers away from being "Slap Shot: Mission to Moscow." It used to be the home of Chris Simon; now it has players like Kip Brennan, Jon "Nasty" Mirasty and the star our next clip, Jeremy Yablonski.
In a game between Dinamo Riga and Vityaz Chekhov on Sunday...
