Anywho, NHL.com has two write-ups on rookies set to make a splash this year: Evander Kane and Alex Pietrangelo. Kane has been absolutely tearing it up at the Traverse City tourney, despite the Thrashers going 2-2. There are still some reservations about him making the big club this year - like I mentioned, he needs to bulk up and the 7 lbs of muscle he added this summer isn't enough to keep him from getting smacked around like a ping-pong ball. Zach Bogosian had the physique of a man when he was 18. Kane's still very much a boy. Falconer pretty much analyzes this better than me, so please, read his summary of the situation.
John Davidson officially says heck no to Heatley. Praise God. I don't want him tainting both of my favorite teams with his egomania.
And, finally, the Blues check in with one another over their summer vacation.
