Its going to matter what we do. The Blackhawks and the Kings each have two titles in the last five years, and theyre both the widely considered favorites to play for the Stanley Cup again. But when Los Angeles beat the New York Rangers in five games in the Stanley Cup finals last year, many prognosticators scoffed that five West teams could have beaten any East representative and the theoretical math appears much the same this fall. The West is such a grind, Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy said. Theres so much talent. All these huge, physical teams that skate very well. We can have another great regular season, and it wont matter if we dont have the toughness to win in the playoffs. The Western Conference has won six of the last eight Cups, and the two East winners were stretched to a full seven games in the finals. Although Boston, Pittsburgh, Montreal and Tampa Bay return strong clubs, league MVP Sidney Crosby and the rest of the Easts stars realize theyll have to go West to win a title. The West is where its at right now, and it runs in spurts, Buffalo general manager Tim Murray said. The Western teams are good teams. Theyre big. source: http://www.myrecordjournal.com/sports/nationalsports/5771479-129/a-western-tilt-stands-out-for-healthy-happy-nhl.html

He just got better and better as camp went on, said Blues general manager Doug Armstrong. Lindbohm played in four of the Blues seven preseason games, but if he makes his NHL debut this weekend, it will have an entirely different feel. The coaching staff, however, was surprised and impressed enough with how Lindbohm showcased in camp to possibly give him a hefty task against the Ducks. “Talk about coming from left field, Hitchcock said of Lindbohm in camp. Nobody knew anything about him. He’s got size, he’s got a bomb for a shot, he’s really competitive as heck. Once Gunnarsson is comfortable enough to return to the lineup, Lindbohm is likely to be sent back to the AHL. While he has been given full clearance by doctors, Gunnarsson still isnt ready to play; therefore he remains a non-roster player. The Blues, who entered the season with 22 players on their NHL roster, now have 23 with the addition of Lindbohm. Once Gunnarsson make his Blues debut which could be as early as Thursdaythe club will have to subtract a player from their roster. source: http://www.kmov.com/sports/Blues-recall-Lindbohm-279698722.html

I repeat, the Tampa Bay Lightning ‘s Jonathan Drouin is off the IR and in the NHL. There are some [notoriously] BIG expectations on the youngster. Bob McKenzie looks at the kid’s hockey career so far and some of the other rookies challenging Drouin for the spotlight. [TSN] There are the right ways and the wrong ways to respond to the news as serious as that surrounding Slava Voynov’s domestic violence arrest. TRH documents both.
