You Knew It Was Coming - The Stanley Cup For A Canadian Team

from Stephen Whyno of the CP at the Globe and Mail, A Stanley Cup in Winnipeg, or Edmonton, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal or Ottawa would be a benchmark for the league, as well. The longest drought before this one was seven years, between the Montreal Maroons’ victory in 1935 and the Maple Leafs’ in 1942. The next Canadian team to win the 16 playoff games necessary...

Red Wings’ cuts allow Grand Rapids Griffins to begin Calder Cup defense when camp opens on Monday

The Red Wings' announcement that the team had assigned 27 players--including some of the team's brightest prospects in Calle Jarnkrok, Tomas Jurco, Martin Frk, Xavier Ouellet and Ryan Sproul--to the Grand Rapids Griffins yielded raised eyebrows from Wings fans who expected the team to allow the "almost ready for prime time" players to remain with the Wings for a...

With Vokoun Out, What Can The Penguins Do?

from Rob Rossi of Chipped Ice, ...notable is that Zatkoff (now considered the back-up goalie) must clear waivers to be on the roster by the regular-season set date (Sept. 30). That is not anticipated to be a problem. Also, the Penguins already had to get under the NHL’s $64.3 million salary cap, so signing a veteran goalie would make that even more of a challenge. ...

Morning Line

Midway through training camp, there is a pervasive feeling that the Jackets have been afforded a fresher start than they have had in some time. Two years ago, James Wisniewski was slapped with a hefty suspension and the Jackets fell on their face when the gate opened. Last year, there was a lockout, followed by a front-office purge. Then came the surprise stretch run to the truncated...

What Happens If Fleury Fails And Strength Up The Middle Questions

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - A random thought: Should Marc-Andre Fleury not regain his form in Pittsburgh, do the Penguins look to trade for a goaltender sometime during the season, such as Tim Thomas, maybe? - If strength up the middle is a Stanley Cup component, where would the Maple Leafs rank among teams in the Eastern Conference? Certainly behind Pittsburgh...

Red Wings’ loss to Boston was product of unfocused effort; Gustavsson tweaked his groin, too

In attending my first Wings game since Nicklas Lidstrom retired (yes, it's been that long), I witnessed an unfocused and disjointed effort from a "discomboobled" Red Wings team that dropped a 2-0 decision to a much more star-studded Boston Bruins lineup (the game summary and event summary are available but don't necessarily tell much of the game's "story...

Stepan And Rangers Need To Find Some Middle Ground

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, It is likely Stepan will have to compromise a bit more in order to get this done. But the Rangers are going to have to be willing to compromise, too, and come closer to the asking price of $3.5M per than they have been willing. If they don’t, Stepan will have a serious problem. But then, so will the Rangers. It’s lose-lose. The...

In Case You Want To Follow Wings/Bruins Tonight

Just in case you want to discuss the game-  Tthe only way to follow it is either listen to Ken Kal on 1270am or stream the audio (tested and working) or follow the Wings or Bruins official twitter feeds for updates.

The ‘boys in the parking lot’ show how parking the Wings’ cars is…not done…correctly

This is...different....From the Red Wings (via RedWingsFeed), but you'll find out about some of the rides that the Wings' players take to the rink. Let's just say that the gents tend to have more than one "fall/spring" car and a winter SUV. No word as to whether Jakub Kindl's annoyed that the "Boys in the Parking Lot" used his Range Rover...

Preparing To Burn Down The East

Typically, I give the preseason very little credence. I prefer to think of it as a few games to skate around and shoot stuff at goalies, maybe bump some people hard but not hard enough to make them seriously angry.  Nobody wants to get hurt and I don't want to see anyone hurt unless it's a team I despise like St. Louis. Even then, I don't want the players hurt I just...
