Lol not at all. Pre season hockey just crept up so quickly.

For those who care, the NHL Gamecenter streaming package is over 30 bucks cheaper this year. They've also added a "one team only" option that's $105. That's a great deal for 80+ games.

To make this an even bigger fucking disgrace the Patrick Kane accuser's rape kit was apparently ripped open and dumped on her mother's door step.

That is the most bizarre shit. Someone broke into an evidence locker? How does that even happen?

Later Wednesday afternoon, Erie County commissioner of Central Police Services John Glascott denied that any evidence had been mishandled or that the chain of custody had been broken.

“All evidence related to this case that was given to Erie County Central Police Services by the Town Of Hamburg Police Department is accounted for and remains in its original packaging in the possession of Erie County Central Police Services,” Glascott said in a statement. “This includes the evidence in the rape kit and the packaging itself.

“This evidence has been analyzed and reports of that analysis sent to the appropriate agencies.”

 

So - what was that on the table at the press conference?

Went to the Rangers-Devils game last night at the Rock. Good game for a preseason tilt, NYR won 4-3 on a whacky goal with 6 minutes left. Corey got the puck behind the net and went to clear it up the ice. Unfortunately for him there was a broken stick in the way he didn't notice and it deflected off of it right to a Ranger who deposited it into the empty net.

Late in teh game, I'd say the Blues enter the season looking something like this

 

Steen-Stastny-Tarasenko

Schwartz-Lehtera-Jaskin

Fabbri-Backes-Brouwer

Ott-Brodziak-Reaves

Rattie, Upshall

 

Pietrangelo-Bouwmeester

Lindbohm-Shattenkirk

Gunnarson-Parayko 

Butler

 

Elliot

Allen

 

Notes:

The first line has looked great together, and Tarasenko has been on fire, to nobodys surprise. Stastny has seemingly settled in, and Steen is Steen.

 

For that second line, Jaskin has seemingly made sizable improvements in his biggest weakness: First Step. He has the size, overall speed, and shot to be a very effective top 6 power forward, but has always seemed a step slow. Early reports are he's looked much quicker this year. Lehtera just go off injury, and Jaden is a fantastic hockey player coming into his own.

 

Third Line is basically a "Let's see what Fabbri can do and cover him with a couple bruisers" deal. I don't know what I expect from Robby yet, but I expect big things long term.

 

4th Line is a 4th line.

 

The defensive pairings are interesting, as the Blues have 2 very very good defensemen (Petro and Kirk), one that could be there depending on if he plays better then last year (Bouw), and a Vet who could play top 4 in a pinch (Carl) , but are backed by 3 really really promising young players in Petteri Lindbohl, Colton Parayko, and Joel Edmunson, All 3 are big defensemen with solid mobility, all good in there own zone. Parayko is the most interesting though. 6'5, but was a late bloomer in terms of height. He got used to skating as a smaller guy, when it was actively one of his strengths. then had a major growth spurt, kept most of his skating prowess, and gained a gigantic Slapshot with good offensive instincts. Could, if things break right, turn into one of the best overall defensemen in the league. 

 

It's kinda funny, the Blues actually have outstanding talent right now in terms of young players, but some people aren't aware out of that, even in prospect pools.

 

Anyway, I love this team on paper. I fully expect a team that can win the Presidents Trophy. I won't get excited till we win a playoff series.

The Oilers have wished Nikita Nikitin well in his future endeavors. At the speed Nikitin moves I assume he'll have left Edmonton by around Halloween.

I remember when we traded him for Kris Russell and I LOVED that trade. Then we traded Russel to Calgary for a 5th round pick and I HATED it.

@reporterchris: Scottie Upshall turns his PTO into a two-way deal with #stlblues: He makes $700,000 in the NHL/$200,000 in the AHL.

Rumor making the rounds is that Devils will announce tomorrow Brodeur night will be in February vs Oilers. Selling that game will probably get me back half of what I paid for my season tickets.

The last one went from 25 games down to 21. So I dunno... 37?

 

There are Oilers fans pointing out that 41 games out means his first game back is against Edmonton where he'd probably immediately try and kill Connor McDavid or something.

We lost Frank Corrado on waivers. :o How do you groom a player for four years and just as he's about to be ready for the big club, you lose him for nothing? He's going to be a good second pairing defenseman pretty soon. Really good shot, solid positionally, good outlet pass. Enjoy, Toranna. 

 

I fucking hate my team.

Half a season before I have to hold my nose and root for Raffi by association.  Sounds good to me.  That might be enough time to brace myself for it.

Hope he makes the team.  The paisans in Woodbridge Ontario need a new Italian on the team so they can finally get rid of their Carlo Coliacovo and Sergio Momesso jerseys
