Catching up on the latest from Day 1 at Blackhawks training camp – Yahoo Sports

It starts today. With incredible tenacity and playoff resilience, Los Angeles has accomplished remarkable feats in the past three years. And with two Stanley Cup rings already on most players fingers, the Kings are left chasing some pretty remarkable goals. The NHL hasnt had a repeat champion since the Detroit Red Wings won two straight Cups in 1997 and 1998. No team has won three titles in four seasons since the Edmonton Oilers pulled off the feat from 1987-90, winning before and after Wayne Gretzkys 1988 departure for Los Angeles. Its probably because its the toughest trophy to win, said Kings coach Darryl Sutter, who spent three decades in the NHL as a player, coach and executive before touching the Stanley Cup for the first time in 2012. So to do it back-to-back, especially in the salary cap (era) in a parity league I mean, if wed have lost Game 7 to Chicago in the (Western) Conference finals, then we wouldnt be talking about it. It tells you how close it is. Indeed, the Kings won the West in Game 7 on an overtime goal that took a crazy bounce off Blackhawks defenseman Nick Leddys upper body. Without that fortunate break, Los Angeles might have been headed home while Chicago played for its second title in three years. The Blackhawks are still loaded with talent, and the NHLs balance of power again seems tilted toward the West teams. Nearly every West contender has made significant personnel additions for another run at the champions, but the Kings have worn a target for the past two seasons, and theyre confident they can handle it. source: http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2014/09/19/reigning-champs-la-kings-begin-quest-of-3rd-nhl-title-in-4-seasons/

Avalanche veterans reported to the Pepsi Center on Thursday for medicals and physicals. The first day of training camp is Friday.

If this group can come together quickly, we could be talking about two potentially devastating forward lines from the beginning of the season. Can’t wait to get the first real glimpse at a Kane-Richards-Saad line on Tuesday night. What’s up with the cap? We still don’t know who’s getting traded for cap purposes, but the assumption remains that it will happen before the start of the season. Whether it’s Johnny Oduya , Michal Rozsival or someone else, the Blackhawks need to trade a substantial salary to get under the salary cap in the next couple weeks. Oduya briefly discussed the rumors Friday: “I know it’s there I think everybody does,” Oduya said Friday during training camp at Notre Dame. “I try not to worry about it too much. I want to focus on performing and working hard. That’s what I have on my mind.” That’s pretty much what you’d expect to hear from a player who presumably hopes to stick around for another Stanley Cup run. We’ll just have to wait and see how Stan Bowman ultimately resolves the situation. Hossa feeling good, looking good At 34 years old, Marian Hossa might start showing his age eventually, but apparently not yet. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/catching-latest-day-1-blackhawks-174551426.html

Like (coach Joel Quenneville) always says, the players kind of sort that out for us by the way they play. So, I’m not walking into it with any expectations.” Neither is Quenneville, though he likes what he’s seen from Teravainen this summer. “He’s progressed at a reasonable pace,” Quenneville said. “He’s got a lot of attributes that indicate he’s going to be a really good player at our level. Like Stan said, we’ll see how it plays itself out during camp, and he’ll make the decision for us when is exactly the right time to start playing on a regular basis in our league. He’s a high-end guy. He’s got all of the attributes you look for in a player.” Oduya, Versteeg ready: Bowman confirmed that defenseman Johnny Oduya is healthy and ready to start camp. Oduya broke a bone in his foot in the third period of Game 7 of the Western Conference Final against the Los Angeles Kings. He took the summer to heal, and no surgery was necessary. Bowman also said forward Kris Versteeg is looking forward to getting back on the ice after a full summer of training. source: http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20140918/sports/140918116
