Training camps start soon, so let's get the party started.

Unfortunately, a bit of bad news to start. Carol Vadnais, 6-time All Star who played for the Bruins, Canadiens, Rangers, Golden Seals and Devils, died on Sunday at age 68.

He won Stanley Cups with both the Habs and Bruins, but what I remember him best for was when he played for the Golden Seals, and was the only NHL team I remember whose players wore white skates.

The best thing about the football season getting ready to start is it means hockey's right around the corner.

Bob Suter, a member of the "Miracle On Ice" team that won the Olympic gold medal in 1980 and the father of Minnesota Wild star Ryan Suter, died Tuesday at the age of 57.

Suter died suddenly in his hometown of Madison, Wisconsin, and is the first player from the famed 1980 Olympic men's hockey team that upset the Soviet Union and beat Finland for the gold medal to pass away.

So - sat down with my season ticket partner to do the game draw for the upcoming season at MTS Centre. Caught some good games including Pittsburgh, Chicago, Rangers and the home opener against Nashville. Can't wait!

Hopefully we'll be doing a play-off draw come April! (Would make a pleasant change.)

I'm undecided on this season..you lose a 30 goal scorer not replaced.

They trade a tough as nails top four defense man that really did not have to be moved for cap space, and got three draft picks.

Draft pick are a crap shoot at best..unless you get in the top five or so.

This team did not get better just older and slower. :confused:

Hawks open up against a Dallas team that looks like they might make some noise this season. Seguin, Benn and Spezza is one scary line, and Kari is a great goalie when he stays healthy. Might end up being Hawks biggest challenge in the division.

Yeah, and I have Varlomov in one of my fantasy leagues. Yer killin' me, Smalls.

Corey Crawford saved 18 other guys, and the Hawks get a 3-2 SO win to start the campaign. :)

I've been telling all my hockey buds that the Stars have unreal speed and are going to contend this year if Lehtonen stays healthy...but their puck pursuit is even better than I thought it would be. They are going to do some damage this season.

Wings played well and won their opener over the Bruins 2-1. It was a fun game to watch. Wings carried the play but ended up in a 1-0 hole early on. They didn't flinch, kept up the pressure and it paid off. Their D was pinching often and the forwards were doing a great job of covering and back checking. I was impressed.

E.J., the experts are predicting that the Avs will not repeat the success of last season. Of course, last year they predicted the Avs would miss the playoffs, and they won the division, so what to they know?

(Except for the 7 of 13 ESPN guys who picked the Hawks to win the Cup in 2015...they're pretty smart). ;)

So far not looking to good for the B's.

Defense is shaky and the offense is non-existence.

Still early let's see how the offense look when Krejci gets back and get a few games under their belt then and see how the offense pans out.

The Defense is suspect right now
Why would you sign Bartkowsky and dump Boychuk.?

Still early in the season
1st week of December is when we can start calling for the firings and dumping of the useless players if they don't start showing some life.

That was the talk on NHL radio yesterday, Mike, the Sharks are expected to do well in the regular season, but will ultimately be judged on their post season. They also opined that Stalock will be the number 1 goalie by that time.

Nice to see the offense not look so "offensive"

Still major issues on D with to many give cough ups in their own zone.

They will miss Chara when they face good teams and Krug on the Power play.

Let's hope this Chara injury is a blessing in disguise and he comes back rested and get into playing shape for a strong late season push.

Let's hope they can keep their heads above water.

“My whole memories, I am score every practice. Ten goals every practice. Every shootout I score on him. I don't know how he win 300, I don't know. It surprises me,” was the full quote from Malkin."

Nice comeback win last night. I have to think Pickard is going to supplant Berra as the #2, Berra has been yanked twice in two games(both after allowing 3 goals in the 1st). Pickard has shutouts in both of those in relief.

Good thing the Avs traded a 2nd for Berra & then signed him to a longer deal. Though he's had some tough bounces, he's not playing well.

Hockey doesn't translate well on TV anyway, but the feed is terrible. Any non hockey fan, just dumping into the game as a NYD game, "I'm going to watch hockey" gets a terrible offering. As a HUGE FAN, I can't follow it great. It's terrible. Meh...?

So Chevy made his first really significant trade in 3 years. Poor Buffalo compound their problems and inherit Kane for their troubles. (This ain't no Patrick Kane either). Sad to see Bogosian go, he was popular in the community.

Myers and Stafford look like decent journeymen to pick up for a playoff push. We'll see how they look tonight.

If Kane can turn his sh!t around, Buffalo wins this deal in my eyes. While Myers is a good skater with decent hands, he is soft. Built like Chara, plays like Charo.

Stafford had one good season in his career, he's a adequate third liner at best.

That being said, Winnipeg still has some great talent up front and on D, if the goaltending could stay consistent, they might make a dent in the playoffs.

Wish the sharks would have made some big moves in trading away players with actual talent. Right now they remind me of the Flames from a couple of years ago. Good enough to sneak into the playoffs, but that's it. They aren't a complete team, and no way they can compete once things get tighter.

As much as I like him, moving Pavelski would be a good long term move. He isn't THAT young anymore, is a good player under a great contract. Ship him out and see what the return will be.

Guess it depends on how close you think they are to winning. I'm not much of a fan of making the playoffs knowing you have no chance to win. By getting rid of him, you know you can get a big return. Have to give to get, and it would be sad to see him go but I think the return in a few years would be worth it. What makes it hard is having Thornton and Marleau right now. I don't care what their numbers are, they are the main reason the team is able to stay at the cusp of the playoffs. Tough situation, and will be another rough offseason for them.

Lived in Boston for 18yrs, used to walk by the Union Oyster House every day, little bit of coolness for you, the Bell In Hand tavern on the corner of that building is not only the oldest tavern, but in the show I Dream of Jeannie, Major Nelson had a bar sign behind his front door on the wall, it was the sign from The Bell in Hand... I loved that show growing up (I was from Satellite Beach, the town next to Cocoa Beach where Tony and Jeannie lived), so as soon as I saw the sign hanging outside the bar I recognized it. Now what was I saying .. oh yah ... Rask sucks.

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Newly acquired Boston Bruins forward Brett Connolly broke a finger on his right hand and will be out six weeks.

Connolly was hit in the hand by a puck during Wednesday's practice at Ristuccia Arena. He exited the ice early and was examined by the team's hand specialist.

The Bruins acquired Connolly on Monday from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for a pair of second-round draft picks in 2015 and 2016. The former first-rounder practiced with the Bruins on Tuesday and was participating in drills Wednesday when the shot hit his right hand and broke his finger.

Good game by Wings. Sharks got out classed. This team is in full blown dumpster fire mode.

I haven't been on CA in months. My first time back and I stumble across this post. I love ya Mike and this brought a smile to my face. :D

Wings have a great chance to come out of the East, Mike. How cool would it be if the Hawks could get through (without Kane 1 or 2 rounds), and have a Hawks-Wings SCF?

Not only does Ottawa make silly laws and impose taxes, they also have an annoying little hockey team that seems to be on a roll. Sens downed the Jets last night, even chasing poor Hutch from goal. (Although the rotten swines gave the Wild 2 valuable points)

Sooner or later.....

:tu Don't get me wrong, I still love the Avs but I think this season had been disappointing to a certain degree. One of the bright points was signing Iginla, who has played well for us and helped with some leadership too.

Nice win for the Avs last night, Varly with his 5th shutout this season :)

I'd sign up for that. The Hawks are the only team in the West I can root for without holding my nose.


The Wings have faltered a bit since the trade deadline. They need to find a way to integrate the new pieces in Cole/Zidlicky quickly.

Jets had a great game last night, holding off the Bolts.

Engstrom proves he's as tough as nails. Takes a huge boarding hit and goes off bleeding, only to come back after a few quick stitches. Feisty little guy.

Hockey players are a different breed, Adam, especially at playoff time. Ask Duncan Keith or Patrice Bergeron. The Last Gladiators. :tu

Lucic? Sorry, he proved what a clown he is again after today's game with the Caps. Just once, try to have a little class or dignity after a loss, Milan. ;)

I have to say that last series and those two were probably pretty much the extreme, although others have played with some serious injuries those guys had multiple injuries.

I missed it and I've given up on him having any class or sportsmanship, let's face it that's not "his game", that being said it would be a lot better if he could put up Cam N. numbers .. :r

We could all use Cam on our teams, Adam, maybe clone him? :D

I'd take Bergeron on the Hawks in a minute, and even let you keep Milan. :)

Great night at MTS Centre with the Jets winning in a shoot out. Hard game with the Blues. Arena was really loud! Fickle fans were chanting "Pav-vie" after wnating to lynch him a week ago! He didn't leak much, but Myers and Stafford are really looking like a good trade about now. Both were playing incredible games, with Stafford first star of the game.

The West is getting interesting with a real battle for the wild card spots.

This season rocks! (If you're not in Toronto of course - which means - this season rocks!!!)

Not only is he a cheap shot artist, holder of the most missed elbows throw (throw by him and just missing people's heads) and numerous other distinctions, he now get's a minor fine that will mean nothing to him, they need to start suspending players for diving, don't care what team they play for.

NEW YORK -- Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban has been fined $3,000 for diving in a game against Ottawa, his third fine in three months.

He paid up after getting warnings twice in January for diving against Tampa Bay and the New York Rangers. A third citation for the dive on March 12 against the Senators triggered the $3,000 fine.

If he gets another warning this season, he will be fined an additional $4,000, and Montreal coach Michel Therrien must pay a $2,000 penalty.

When it starts costing his coach (who makes much less) money, maybe it will stop.

I would also like to see Brad Marchand quit diving. Or P.K. connecting with one of those elbows to Marchand's head. Or both. :D
