PK Subban was among today’s cuts by the Habs.

 

Interesting note in the comments below – Brett McLean is still in Phoenix, even though Tikhonov and Turris are not. He is a very underrated player. I didn’t think he was ready this soon, but this makes me wonder.

 

Kyle Turris and Viktor Tikhonov have been sent to the AHL by the ‘Yotes.

 

Dallas has cut goaltender Richard Bachman, winger Sergei Korostin and centers Scott Glennie and Perttu Lindgren, among others.

 

The Oilers have waived Ryan Potulny.

 

The Lightning have assigned Lauri Tukonen to Finland.

 

La version Française du Guide des Poolers est maintenant mise à jour.

 

It’s no secret that the Avs have been impressed by prospect Ryan O’Reilly, even demoting Stoa ahead of him. Now they put that interest onto paper – they signed him to a three-year deal, according to Adrian Dater. I still don’t expect him to make the team this year, but it’s going to be a close call.

 

The Flyers made a slew of cuts, key one: Andreas Nodl. This bodes well for Pat Maroon. Mark Bell and Adrian Foster were let go.

 

The Bruins cut Max Sauve.

 

Funny how both players named Juraj Mikus (LA and TOR) were cut on the weekend. I would have mentioned this yesterday, but the TOR Mikus holds no fantasy interest to me. However, some people were confused, saying that I got the wrong Mikus. I did not – there are two. Both cut.

 

The Blues have cut Brenden Bell and Steve Wagner. That pretty much indicates that Pietrangelo likely has an NHL job.

 

The Preds have signed Francois Bouillion. That limits the amount of holes needed to be filled by Franson, Blum or Laakso.

 

The first of the surprise cuts – Ryan Stoa has been sent down by the Avs. He was my pick for the first line and a Top 10 Calder candidate by me. Adrian Dater cites his lack of a quick “first step” for the move. He’ll be back, but expect just cups of coffee this first pro season.

Later this week – the biggest Dobber Nation show ever. Massive guests. And that’s not even including myself, who will be on the show for the first time since (I believe) June. There are still some sponsorship spots open – and remember a 30-second ad comes with a banner on the radio show page. This is the biggest fantasy hockey show in the world – we get more listeners than any attempts by AM stations to do the same thing. Contact Rob at [email protected] dobberhockey.com.

Curtis Glencross helped his cause to land a spot on the Flames top six with a four-point game last night. He could be a 55-point player in that
