Thursday's Dump & Chase: Time For the Real Deal...Training Camp Opens Today

New, comments

Here we go! No on-ice activities today, just physicals...which started at 6am. Why? Who knows? In fact, this is now one of my biggest questions heading into the season...why do the players have to be anywhere at 6am, like ever? Forget the no-trade clause...the first thing I'd have put in my contract is a clause defining the start of the workday at 9am. Or later if I could get away with it.
