NHL PLAYERS POLL Which goalie could drop the pads and skate a shift if needed? Mike Smith, Coyotes….19% Martin Brodeur, Devils….17% Pekka Rinne, Predators….9% Carey Price, Canadiens….8% Ray Emery, Blackhawks….5%

This comes from the upcoming issue of Sports Illustrated. What do you think, could the 6'5" Finn get out there and hustle around the ice? I know that in their own mind, pretty much every goalie thinks they could be a sniper.

"The Predators had a scout at the Carolina Hurricanes and Pittsburgh Penguins game tonight. That’s (at least) the third straight Canes game they’ve had a scout at." So, who do you think the Preds are scouting? Who do you *hope* they're scouting?

"We’ll be prepared, if we feel that we weren’t going to be able to sign Ryan, and if we thought we were in a position that we had to or should trade him. I’m certainly hoping that doesn’t happen, I don’t want that to happen, but I want to be prepared for that." David Poile discusses Ryan Suter’s contract with Josh Cooper. I'm not trying to be Debby Downer, but this situation hasn't gotten any better since I wrote about it a month ago.

I left the game feeling like I'd been treated to a great show while surrounded by a bunch of the coolest kids in class. A Pittsburgh fan made a 5-game road trip to various arenas, including a visit to Nashville. This excerpt comes from a FanPost over at PensBurgh.

Happy to announce that @mikefisher1212 was announced as the #Preds second Alternate Captain (joining Ryan Suter) at a team dinner last night.

Arrived in Florida for rookie tournament yesterday. FIre alarm goes off in hotel at 3:00am and everyone evacuated. All players from Florida, Nashville, Tampa, their management and coaching staffs stood on sidewalk for 45 mins. Fun times!

He was one of hockey’s great guys. He was a great teammate and friend that would do anything for others before himself. My thoughts and prayers are with his family through this tough time.

According to several sources, the Predators prepared the qualifying offers and sent them off to the players by Federal Express at 4 p.m., on deadline day. The only problem is the players did not receive them until the next day. The Predators did not fax the qualifying offers to either the players’ agents or the NHL Players’ Association.

It pains me to link to Ken Campbell at The Hockey News, but this is a new detail we hadn't heard. Ruh roh.

''We'll be stricter enforcing the laws,'' N.H.L. Commissioner Gary Bettman said in a conference call announcing Campbell's appointment to replace Brian Burke, who left the job after five years to become general manager of the Vancouver Canucks. ... Asked how he would look at incidents brought before him for review, Campbell said that injury would be a major factor in his decisions. ''Injury or attempting to injure is a big part of discipline,'' he said. ''An infraction away from the play is also something to look into.'' Bettman has said that he expects the league to hand out longer suspensions to players who deliver blows to opponents' heads. The New York Times reporting on the hiring of Colin Campbell as the NHL's chief disciplinarian on July 21, 1998. Reports are swirling that Campbell will now step down from that position with Brendan Shanahan taking over.
