Where he will be welcomed as a god and smothered in rubles. Tough end for him.

The Kings say that it's unnecessary to terminate his contract because of the "self-deportation", conveniently they get to retain his rights if he ever returns. How about :censored: ing right off.

Sort of relieved that the Reign don't visit now.

Many Canadiens fans, myself included, wanted Subban. He's the best player, the best true leader, and the face of the franchise on and off the ice. Some can't comprehend why they didn't go with the "obvious" choice.

But apparently, it was the players who voted. Maybe they wanted someone with a more reserved tone, when someone has to talk to officials. Either way, PK will be the team's best leader regardless of the letter on his jersey.

I tend to think the guys in the locker room will pick the "best true leader". They have more insight than the media and fans.

I'm not so sure about that. While I'm sure Subban is definitely respected by his teammates, Pacioretty is the one who won the confidence of the dressing room.

We won't know how the votes went down, though. Maybe it was decided by one vote, down to the wire.

Not NHL related, but I just learned in Canadian Junior A hockey (at least the ones under the CJHL umbrella sanctioned by Hockey Canada) it's an automatic 5 and a game for fighting.

Trying to crackdown on fighting between the good Canadian boys at younger ages now.

...and the Blackhawks re-sign Rozsival. Just when they were done with him, too. Granted it's for significantly less money, but the guy is toast.

Just because a 37-year-old has one ankle left and hasn't skated in four months doesn't mean he can't steal minutes from talented prospects.

It's not all bad, however. I understand Rozsival is rubbing mixed parts veteran grit, Coyote integrity and invaluable "hockey sense" on the remnants of his horrifically dislocated ankle. Doctors say this should accelerate the healing process just enough to derail 1-2 prospect careers.

"Your 2015-16 Chicago Blackhawks: Loyal To A Fault" has a nice ring to it.

Unless I missed Blackhawks adding Dan Cleary to the roster, that slogan is already taken for the upcoming season.

Rozsival won't last the year. His leg will explode bending over to put his skates on, possibly as soon as tomorrow, and his cap hit is low enough to bury if he just plain sucks. I wouldn't mind having him around for a few weeks to start the season as a locker room guy/#8D, but I feel you'll have to phase him out eventually if he doesn't do it himself.

Edmonton gives a seven-year extension to Oscar Klefbom, which seems like a big leap of faith for a guy with only 77 games played. That's almost as bad as the giant deal John Klingberg got in Dallas for, like, basically showing up. Still, with the low cap hit, this could be a huge coup for the Oilers if he turns out. I'm pretty excited to watch this thing come together.

Brandon Saad caught a puck in the mouth at practice today and lost two teeth. Columbus picking up right where they left off last season!
