Well, it was fun while it lasted but I might be getting the hook for another assignment that just popped up.
I watched the workout for the guys who are playing tonight, had a few words with some of the players, then went to watch the workout for the guys not playing tonight and now I may have to leave.
So not much to report other than: Nothing new on Dubinsky.
Cuts tomorrow, down to the low 30s in numbers. The team goes to Detroit Friday (not traveling the day before the game, as they normally would) then to Boston for Saturday afternoon. So a lot of guys (probably the young guys) will have to play both of those games.
Sanguinetti, for those who asked, is not in the lineup tonight at the Rock, and didn’t play last night. I don’t know what’s up. I don’t think the team thinks he’s ready to be one of the many young defensemen ready to play now, though, or at least make team. I’d think Gilroy, Del Zotto and Potter, for sure, are ahead of him, and probably a few others. There are obviously only two spots on defense open.
Gotta go. Hope to speak with Tortorella, but that might not happen.
