Jim Rutherford gave an interesting interview to Sportsnet590 today. You can listen to it here.
Rutherford hints that he really wants to see Christian Ehrhoff back before deciding on the D. He seems pretty clear that he isn’t looking for big-time, game changing player.
Guess we’ll see.
We don’t get a lot of emails anymore, but this email nailed home a lot of truth:
The great Carmine Falcone once said , ” …and you always fear, what you don’t understand.” That is me with advanced stats. I kind of understand them, and I kind of don’t. I used to be really be angry about advanced stats, but only because I didn’t like how they were being presented. But with […]

USA hockey jerseys are bad, Buffalo's jersey are just, wow. Canada's not much better, and now Wilkes Barre: Yea, just not feeling these. LIke the logo, overall though, meh. Is that a new goldish color?
Hey, training camp is in like 8 minutes. Screenshot via capgeek. Main number to focus on is cap space, which means basically Shero overdrafted his bank account, but there are no fees. Shero has until game 1 to get under the cap So really tons of time to comply, but the clock is ticking. Being […]

Still August. Which sucks. But LOL @ Fraud Giroux. Anyway…Malkin posted this on his instagram last week:
