These off days confuse me

Never again to score against the Sound Tigers in the playoffs, Ryan Whitney is off to Anaheim. But the deal maybe affects the late-season East Division, anyway: Eric Tangradi, Anaheim’s second-round pick in 2007, has 87 points in the OHL, and Jonathan notes he played at Wyoming Seminary outside Wilkes-Barre.

In other news, “Forty Fort” is a great name for a town.

No changes in practice, which was a little shorter than it has been of late. They’re headed out tomorrow for Philly.

Nice column by the Times Union‘s Mark McGuire on regular River Rats bus driver Jack Kingsbury.

Full schedule each of the next two nights in the league. San Antonio has the night off Friday; Chicago gets Saturday off.

Petteri Nokelainen is putting the visor back on.

And RIP, Rocky Mountain News.
