I'm just so happy that this season is happening even if the Sabres probably won't make the playoffs

In a shortened year, they probably have a fair shot. The team doesn't look that bad on paper.

edit: somehow I forgot about their center situation. Nevermind.

I'd love to see what the rosters would look like in a 20 team league.

Rutherford says that he is looking to add one forward before camp and it's going to be someone not from Charlotte. I guess it'll be someone low-key for the third or fourth lines.

What FAs are out here?

I saw Sykora and Arnott thrown around on the Canes forum but I don't see that happening.

Not many worth mentioning. Although I wouldn't mind the Canes giving someone like Mathieu Darche or Jesse Winchester a look for the fourth line.

Chip said Rutherford could be looking to trade for a winger.

One name I've heard thrown around is Kevin Westgarth from the Kings. Rutherford said numerous times that he wants to bring in an enforcer and Westgarth has been practicing at the team's facility for the last few months. He, or any enforcer, wouldn't be my first choice, though.

Nope, there are still three spots open in the Yahoo league.

I could maybe understand the Leafs firing Burke after this year but doing it now confuses me.

I'm surprised PigDestroyer hasn't reappeared to gloat yet.

I found a legit Jussi Jokinen CCM Stars jersey for $35 on eBay and I almost bought it. It's been awhile since I bought a new jersey, though but I've been meaning to pick up one soon. Might have to wait until the next Ice Jerseys deal rolls around.

honest question for everyone... no way bryz is as bad as he was last year, right?

Probably not. Goaltenders have an odd way of working, though.

I'm not sure who the worst team in the league will be this year because a terrible start could end up sinking an entire team's playoff hopes. It could be anyone, really.

Montreal looks pretty bad on paper, though.

Rutherford said that as many as seven players drom the Checkers could be at camp. I'm not sure if that's counting the goalies but it's going to be interesting to see who gets invited and who eventually makes the team.

Canes have apparently traded Brian Boucher to the Flyers.

edit: Mark Alt is also going to Philly.

Not sure why Carolina also threw in a prospect but Alt is having a pretty bad junior year at Minnesota. I was pretty high on him before, though.
