So, you guys need a new thread.
Here it is. (you’re welcome, James).
And while we’re on the topic of slow times and slower news, if anybody’s interested in filling a day or more with a guest blog, please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guess you all saw the news this weekend that A) Dan Lacroix, one-time Ranger, will be the third assistant coach on Alain Vigneault’s coaching staff and B) Jaromir Jagr is trying to out-do Arron Asham in the number of different NHL uniforms he wears, trying out Devils red this coming season … or at least until he’s moved at the trade deadline to some contending team that hasn’t really been watching how he now skates (or doesn’t).
Also, that Ryan Callahan, Ryan McDonagh and Derek Stepan (USA), Carl Hagelin, Henrik Lundqvist and Oscar Lindberg (Sweden), Rick Nash and Marc Staal (Canada) were all invited to their country’s Olympic training camps.
And that John Tortorella (USA) was not named to the coaching staff. Speaking of barking.
