Today’s “story looks at Greg Moore”:http://www.lohud.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060926/SPORTS01/609260357/1046/SPORTS, who threw himself into contention for a forward spot with a strong preseason effort last week, and who survived another round of cuts this morning.
Hartford Wolf Pack
You may notice I’ve been spending a fair amount of time talking about prospects of late, and some of that is because that’s where your interest seems to lie at this time of year. The other way to look at is we’re going to spend upwards of six months talking about the likes of Jagr, Lundqvist, and Shanahan, so for now, it’s worth taking a look at the guys who might not be around much longer.
In that vein, some guys are already gone, most notably goaltender Al Montoya and forward Lauri Korpikoski, both of whom had made positive impressions in camp, but were re-assigned to Hartford this morning. Joining them is Dwight Helminen, Martin Richter, and Lee Falardeau. Put two in the minus column for yours truly since I had both Richter and Montoya on the opening night roster in our roster pool. Shows how much I know.
Meanwhile, the Rangers are in the midst of practice and Jagr is with them, having been fully cleared by team doctors yesterday. I’ll have more on that later….
