Adirondack comeback: Monday notes

It may be a port in a storm before the Western Migration, but Calgary is in fact bringing the kids to Glens Falls in the fall. The Flames replace the Phantoms. More details (including nickname and conference alignment, which could blow some stuff up if they want to stay with some of the other Canadian […] [Read More]

Divisible: Saturday notes

The worst thing an Eastern Conference team could do this year appears to be “win its division”. Manchester and Binghamton went away last night, and tonight it was Springfield, blowing a 3-1 lead in a ridiculous first period and falling to Providence 6-3 at the MassMutual Center. Utterly goofy. Before 14 minutes were done, both […] [Read More]

Playoffs elsewhere: Friday games

Jonathan Bombulie did up a neat table today: AHL cities’ playoff records since the WBS Penguins’ inception. Though they haven’t won a Calder Cup, the Pens have been in enough and made enough deep runs to be the Connie Macks of the AHL: 14 more wins than Hershey; 23 more losses than Providence. Scroll down […] [Read More]

If we win a game in the second round: Thursday notes

“Now we’re all in love with Jaroslav Halak.”* Last season’s Islanders free agency haul, in total, now sums to two months of negotiation with a potential No. 1 goalie. They acquired Halak’s rights from Washington for the fourth-rounder they got from Chicago for Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Peter Regin. Halak’s an unrestricted free agent on July […] [Read More]

Moving on: Wednesday notes

Kevin Schultz linked up a story from Sweden on Anders Nilsson. Nilsson’s quoted in the story as saying he doesn’t want to play another year in the AHL. Interesting tack after a year that admittedly had some ups and downs here. Granted, the first two years were marked by injuries and health issues at times, […] [Read More]

Silver pounds Sterling?: Tuesday notes

Got to be honest. My knowledge of the NBA stops around Eighth Avenue, if it gets that far. So when the Clippers weren’t atrocious the past few years, I’d assumed Donald Sterling was no longer involved. Anyway. Saturday is the Sound Tigers’ annual locker room equipment sale, 10-11:30 a.m.; full- and 20-game-season-ticketholders can show up […] [Read More]

Leduc signs

Loic Leduc’s junior team was knocked out a little too late for him to become ATO 13 and Player 66. He could be around a little earlier next season: The Islanders announced that he’s agreed to terms on his entry-level deal. That’s three locked up from the Islanders’ seven-defenseman draft two years ago. [Read More]
