Tampa Bay Lightning Season Preview

Here’s what to expect from the Bolts this season…

Timonen named Preds' new captain

The Nashville Predators named defenseman Kimmo Timonen as their third captain.

The Final Cut, Staal Letang, Welch, Goalies…

Ray Shero, General Manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins, was able to beat a 5 p.m. deadline Monday and sign forward Jordan Staal and defenseman Kristopher Letang to entry-level contracts. This does not mean that Staal and Letang will play the entire season with Pittsburgh, because they are able to play a total of 9 NHL games and then be returned to their Junior teams.

Could Marc-Andre Fleury be traded?

CKNW in Vancouver is reporting that the Pittsburgh Penguins may be looking to trade Marc-Andre Fleury. His poor performance at camp and during the preseason (excepting Saturday’s loss) has made Jocelyn Thibault the possible number one goalie.

CKNW reported that Ray Shero was looking to trade Fleury to a Western Conference team.
However CDKA Pittsburgh is reporting that Fleury will start in net against Philadelphia on Thursday.

Ribeiro traded!

Team 1200 has just reported that the Habs have traded Mike Ribiero and a 6th round pick in 2007 to the Stars for Janne Niinimaa and a 5th round pick in 2008.

Zherdev has been asking for a trade… for a while

The Columbus Dispatch has reported that Rolland Hedges, Nikolai Zherdev’s agent, has been asking Doug MacLean for a trade for some time now.

And apparently he has been talking to other GMs about Zherdev, from his quotes to the Dispatch:

Malkin back to Magnitogorsk?

A Russian court ruled that Evgeni Malkin cannot play for the Penguins this season. See link to the story inside.

Rules Modifications

It’s not much of a problem, but rather fixing a problem. The NHL Board of Governers has recently approved a variety of rule cahnges and modifications, which are listed below.

Dyrden And Savard To Be Honoured

In a not so secret announcement that was supposed to have taken place on wednesday but was postponed due to the unfortunate cirĀ¢umstances that happened at Montreal’s Dawson College, the Montreal Canadiens were to announce that the numbers of Serge Savard (18) and Ken Dryden (29) are going to be retired this upcoming season.
