National Hockey Now
NYI: The vision of new New York Islanders head coach Lane Lambert is starting to be visible on the ice at training camp.
PGH: Pittsburgh Penguins forward Jamie Devane knocked out Columbus Blue Jackets tough guy Ben Harpur, and even he was scared of the result. This puck scribe has always loved a fight born of passion and heat of the moment but this is a reminder of why fighting is punished much heavier in other sports.
PHI: The injury curse just won’t leave the Philadelphia Flyers. Goalie Carter Hart is injured again and will miss some time.
WSH: Washington Capitals center Connor McMichael is confident he’s going to earn a key spot in the lineup this season.
FLA: ‘We Are Family!’ That’s the song at training camp for the Florida Panthers as brothers Eric and Marc Staal are reunited.
DAL: Can a better offense improve the defense for the Dallas Stars?
COL: Defenseman Josh Manson has returned to training camp for the Colorado Avalanche.
SJS: San Jose Sharks forward Timo Meier isn’t expecting a contract resolution
Canada Hockey Now
MTL: As my Montreal Hockey Now teammate Marco D’Amico pointed out, the Montreal Canadiens are in position to benefit from what could be a crowded waiver wire in the coming weeks.
CGY: Calgary Flames forward Dillon Dube ‘wishes’ he could tell more when it comes to the Hockey Canada mess, but legalities.
VAN: Apparently Vancouver Canucks head coach Bruce Boudreau has a fan base in wrestling.
Does P.K. Subban belong in the Hockey Hall of Fame? Let me take a guess what Boston Bruins fans say!
My vote: Close but no cigar P.K.
