CFA, Day 7: It's Magic

on
The crazy things that get me: What do you notice from this rookie game recap? For me, it’s the first Moncton name: Nicolas Laplante, who came to camp here in 2004. (Steve Regier was here then, at least.) Nice to see Masi Marjamaki’s name in there a few times. Good stuff with Bernie Cassell and […] [Read More]

CFA, Day 6: It's in Revelations*, people!

on
Got a few minutes on the phone today with Jack Capuano — a little story in the paper tomorrow. Capuano also mentioned something that Kimber Auerbach mentioned in his report today: Jamie Fraser dropped about 12 pounds and has really looked quick.

CFA, Day 3: Move to New Jersey

Kimber’s bit from Moncton. Preseason games get going tomorrow. There was sort of one in Shelton today, and the Baby Bruins scored four power-play goals to win 5-1 over the Baby Devils. I was paying little real attention (though it was nice to see a few familiar faces…), except to the uniforms. Boston was wearing […] [Read More]

CFA, Day 2: What tomorrow's gonna really bring

on
The most important thing from Kimber’s Day 2 report is, of course, about Jeremy Colliton. If he starts in Bridgeport, it appears he’ll be wearing his third sweater number in three years, 21. He’ll… No, wait, let’s come back to that. Kimber calls out the line combination that most forced a tweak of my private […] [Read More]
