What's going on with Jordan Staal?

This year’s 2nd overall draft pick has impressed enough at training camp and preseason games to merit a trip to West Point, N.Y., for three days of team-building. Staal becomes one of 29 remaining Penguins players vying for a spot. Now with the injury to Malkin, Staal may have a chance to fill in for 9 games and still be allowed to return to juniors without having a year count against his entry-level contract.

Out of his League

Today on www.hockeybuzz.com Eklund has posted an article about the Devils salary situation. He says he’s spent a day searching for rumors and has discovered a rumor that Mogilny’s salary won’t count against the cap. Funny, I heard all that yesterday on TSN or Sportsnet when it was reported that Moginly had seen a second doctor and there was no possibility he could return to the NHL. Eklund then goes on to state 5 other NJ rumors:

Blue Jackets' Klesla suspended for clip

TSN has reported Columbus defenceman Rostislav Klesla has been suspended two regular-season games for his “clip” of Chicago forward Tuomo Ruutu

Sens camp update

The Senators have lost Joe Corvo for 4-6 weeks with a broken foot after blocking a shot late in the Buffalo game. He’ll miss the start of the season, and fans and reporters have not been impressed with Corvo’s play in his own end. Corvo looks out of place, doesn’t seem to have good chemistry with his partner Wade Redden, and makes fans in Ottawa nervous the way he rushes the puck. It could be the start of a long 4 yearsv- is Corvo the new Sens whipping boy?
