Timing

on
Always wanted to see a game in Glens Falls. Adirondack was near legend, plus they broke my teen-age heart once. Well, now I would have an excuse, with an Islanders-nonDevils* AHL exhibition game going there Sept. 30… except that’s the day of the Islanders-Devils NHL exhibition game in Bridgeport, and that’s no doubt the story.

Orange you glad?

on
Coupla things that didn’t make it in… Figured I’d save these for a little more rounded view and/or official word, but just to toss them out there, it appears Jason Guerriero and Kevin Mitchell are coming back. Guerriero was the little skill and speed guy who came in from Northeastern at the end of 2004-05, […] [Read More]

Bern, baby, Bern

on
Maybe more later, depending on space in print, but probably the biggest thing to come out of today: Bernie Cassell at last has a real title. He’s another assistant coach now, officially, joining the Marshall Plan; you might remember him from the past four years as a skating coach, an extra coach in practice, and […] [Read More]

BRAKE TIME: Kaci says goodbye

Some extra stuff from the last start of Kaci Clark’s NPF career: Why (retire) now? “There’s — whew — I think there comes a time, and it varies from player to player. Sometimes you don’t have it physically anymore and you need to hang them up. Sometimes you might physically still be there but the […] [Read More]

“Cher Monsieur Eaton:”*

Coaches falling in line

on
The Penguins re-signed Alain Nasreddine yesterday, and today they’ve named ex-Whaler Todd Richards coach of Wilkes-Barre. And Kevin up in ManchVegas reports that Mark Morris will become the Monarchs’ next head coach. Morris’ pro career mostly consisted of three seasons up the road, and who doesn’t love Nighthawks references? So that leaves Lowell. [Read More]

Days off are for losers

on
Three-in-three 14 times? Oof. I like going to Hershey for their home opener. I don’t like three trips to Norfolk for four games. (Yep, sure I won’t be making two of them.) I like Cool Fun 202. I don’t like going to Hartford for theirs. (It’d be better were it another place, because I could […] [Read More]
