Jeff Woywitka has a broken foot and will be out until the end of October. It is too bad, because he was a good bet to finally play the full season in the NHL. Now, others have the opportunity to steal his spot.

 

The Panthers lost Steve MacIntyre on waivers. The Oilers scooped up the big defenseman, who could be a good PIM option if he can get into games. 

 

My apologies – the site was down for about 20 minutes this afternoon. Too popular, I guess so I won't complain!

 

My apologies Pt. 2 – I had updated the guide last night…but failed to upload the new document. Dumb of me. Anyway, the Sept. 30th version is uploaded now 18 hours later. 

 

The Canucks have named Roberto Luongo team captain. It is allowed under league rules as long as there is a designated assistant to deal with the refs (Mitchell). Luongo is the first goaltender to serve as captain since the 1940's.

 

Jeff O'Neill has decided to end his comeback bid with the Hurricanes. The team has released him from camp.

 

Paul Gaustad had surgery on his thumb and will be out until November. He is a certified, full-fledged, Band-Aid Boy. If it's not one thing, it's another with him.
 

 

The Jackets hope to get Filatov into a game Thursday or Friday. As I rambled yesterday, I think they'll keep him up for a nine-game trial in the season.

 

Christian Backman led all Columbus rearguards in PP time last night. Seems silly, but he played 6:35 and Kris Russell played 5:36. Tyutin and Klesla each played about 3:50 and had three points each. I would think that Tyutin and Russell are the top two QBs.

 

Tomorrow Marek Svatos will get into his first game since March. He has been recovering from knee surgery.

Mikkel Boedker scored two goals last night, helping his bid to make the Coyotes.

 

Pavel Datsyuk's groin injury is starting to become concerning. He has not played since the start of the preseason and these injuries tend to linger.

 

ME Vlasic was a minus-4
