Brisk fall weather has arrived.  Rolling out of my warm bed was a difficult task this morning – and the first cup of coffee hasn’t set in to warm the blood up yet this morning.  I hope your enjoying your first Monday of hockey season.

Oh and the Buffalo Bills won so that’s a plus too.

Further delays in getting video review to actually mean something in the NHL.  Double-minor high sticking penalties will not be reviewed after all.  [Yahoo Sports].

Seattle still pushing for an NHL/NBA arena to earn a franchise in each or one of those sports.  []

    I hope that Kaleta is one of the players who does not make the Sabres team out of training camp, he is a detriment to the team, a danger to others on the ice and is no longer needed on the squad, replace him with someone who can do something other than attempt to injure opponents. There is hard, tough hockey and there is being a goon, Kaleta is a goon of the worst kind!
