On the Island…

on
Greg Logan just updated and said Satan didn’t skate in the optional morning skate. Hanging in a holding pattern. No word here, although of course players tease each other, even about other teams. After Huet went down, Regier apparently announced to the room that Carey Price had been traded for Antero Niittymaki. [Read More]

Gaze into my Cristobal…

on
TSN says Cristobal Huet to Washington for a pick… I’m kind of puzzled in all directions. (Easily done, of course.) Montreal goes with the kids? Washington has, like, 18 goalies in the organization? Something else must be coming… right? [Read More]
