So the link to today’s post is http://www.blueseatblogs.com/sunday-link-dump-52. That means today is the 52nd link dump in our history. That means it is the one year anniversary of the weekly link dump. I would throw a party, but I don’t think I’m popular enough to get a big enough crowd. In fact, I think just Jugs and Suit would stop by. But hey, it would be fun nonetheless. Here’s to the one year anniversary of the link dump.
The Dallas Stars filed for bankruptcy this week. It’s unsurprising really, considering the financial constraints they were under this year. What is funny is that the Rangers are owed $2 million for Sean Avery. Thanks for Avery, Dallas. Oh, and Brad Richards. Think of it this way, you owe us. We pretty much gift wrapped Sergei Zubov for you via the Penguins. That trade still stings.
Mike Gleich of Bleeding All Blue looks at Mike Sauer’s knee injury –he didn’t skate for the first two days of camp– and it’s severity. In the past, it was never Sauer’s talent that held him back, it was his injury history. This is not a good sign, and hopefully it heals up quickly. Sauer is one of those guys that the Rangers can’t afford to have hurt.
Darren Dreger says the Rangers will commemorate Derek Boogaard with a helmet decal. The big guy will be missed.
Adam Herman of Blue Line Station has a great look at the prospects who increased their stock at the Traverse City tournament. He also looks at those who may have taken a hit during the tournament. To his “taken a hit” list, I’d list Jason Wilson and Sam Noreau to that list. Those kids need to impress soon, or else. I also disagree with listing Tommy Grant as someone who impressed. The kid is 25, he should have been dominant, but he was invisible. I’m going to have to talk to Mr. Herman about the whiskey he is drinking. I think Suit has him in line for questioning about his choice of attire too.
Since Adam may not know us so well here, I hope he is aware we are kidding. I do differ in my opinion, but I’m sure Suit has no qualms with his choice of attire yet.
