Some TidbitsDecember 14, 2008, by
After a very busy day of football and fixing things around the apartment, a few notes:
Corey Potter will be traveling with the team on the west coast swing (as per Sam Weinman). This is probably a just in case scenario, as it is much tougher to get someone from Hartford to the west coast for a game. I’m hoping it’s to get some playing time in lieu of Kalinin.
Sean Avery is, for lack of a better phrase, suspended indefinitely from the Stars. I would expect the Stars to waive him, and assign him to Manitoba (he won’t report, I think it’s just a formality), so they can clear cap space. I’m not sure if that’s kosher by the CBA rules.
Mats Sundin won’t say anything until he signs somewhere (again, as per Sam Weinman). I don’t think it will be or should be with the Rangers.
Tom Renney, despite my opinions, is still the head coach of the Rangers. Pity. I wonder if Peter Laviolette is interested?
