    Really well written article.

    Basically (without giving any spoilers) Ryan isn't his real last name and his family had to quickly move for certain reasons.

    Another thing to chuckle at....

    Recent article on NHL.com rated the starting net minders...good ol Crawford was ranked.. yes you guessed it. LAST! 30 outa 30. Thats bad. I still think the weakest link on this team is in goal. Hope Lil Bowman can pull something off here.

    Crawford needs to have an amazing year, otherwise his career is going to be tough to salvage just about anywhere.

    Arrow September 15th - NHL in a Lockout

    What do you guys/gals think?

    NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly was scheduled to have dinner with NHL Players' Association second-in-command Steve Fehr Wednesday night to discuss some joint projects and procedural issues.

    It's not a negotiating session, but certainly both men have to expect that the stalemated talks to come up in conversation.

    "I expect to talk to Steve about issues," Daly said in a phone interview with USA TODAY Sports. "I expect to have to have beer and dinner and we will see how that goes."

    Even with the NHL planning to lock out players on Sept. 15, there are currently no new formal negotiating sessions scheduled.

    "I don't think panic is right terminology," Daly said. "I hope no one is panicked. Having said that I do believe, based on the response we got on Friday, the concern we had about Sept. 15 not being a real deadline for the players and players association is probably more likely to be accurate. They certainly aren't acting as if it's a deadline."

    Negotiations ceased last Friday after the owners viewed the NHLPA's response to their second proposal as a tweak of the union's original proposal, rather than a true counter-proposal. Commissioner Gary Bettman accused the NHLPA of stonewalling.

    Earlier in the week, the NHL had proposed a six-year plan that would reduce the players' share of revenue from 57 percent to 50% in a phase-in plan. The 50% is actually 46% by how revenue is now defined. Part of the owners' proposal is to slightly alter, in the owners' favor, how revenue is counted.

    In the NHLPA original proposal, players agreed to take less of anticipated future growth for three years in the name of helping financially stressed teams. Under the NHLPA plan, the players would return to receiving 57% in the fourth year.

    On Friday, the NHLPA offered three new ideas they would be willing to discuss about how their share of revenue could be determined in the fourth year. But the NHL bargaining team didn't view the NHLPA offer as significant movement.

    "We certainly haven't dismissed the structure of their proposal," Daly said. "In fact, the proposal we gave them last week in some respect embraced the structure of their proposal. It obviously wasn't good enough to elicit a counter proposal. That is where we are."

    On Wednesday, the NHL officially canceled the NHL/NHLPA media tour, which is designed to maximize exposure for the league's top players. Last month, the Detroit Red Wings canceled their annual rookie tournament at Traverse City, Mich. That affected eight teams.

    On Wednesday, the NHLPA sent a memo to the players, detailing their rights during a lockout.

    The owners picked Sept. 15 as the date of the lockout because that's when the current collective bargaining agreement expires. As the NHLPA often points out, there is no rule that says players have to be locked out out if there is no contract. But with no pressure on either side this summer, there has been no true progress.

    Although there are many issues in play, it seems as if what the negotiations are primarily about the NHL owners trying to reduce players' share of the revenue from 57% to near 50%. The other major issue will be length of contract. Owners are dug in on a longer contract because they want to go through this any time soon. Players prefer a shorter contract because, as NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr points out, the economics of the game could change dramatically.

    "We continue to meet internally and we will try to be as creative as we can be in finding new ways to attack this," Daly said. "At this point, it's fair to say we are stalled at least temporarily."

    Fans, meanwhile, are organizing protests. The fans clearly want to see the sides in a room negotiating.

    "To get into a room and stare at each other without any kind of agenda, I'm not sure that advances the ball much," Daly said. "As long as the lines of communication are open and they are not being artificially shut down, then that's the most you can ask for in a situation like this. So if someone does have a good idea, or an agenda, or a reason to meet I'm sure we will be meeting."

    Blackhawks sign Rozsival

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=405036

    The Chicago Blackhawks agreed to terms with defenceman Michal Rozsival on a one-year contract on Tuesday.

    Rozsival recorded one goal and 13 points and a +8 plus/minus rating in 54 regular-season games with the Phoenix Coyotes last season. The Vlasim, Czech Republic, native helped Phoenix reach the 2012 Western Conference Final for the first time in franchise history, posting 31 hits and 28 blocked shots in 15 games.

    The 34-year-old blueliner has appeared in 756 career regular-season National Hockey League games, tallying 260 points and 589 PIM in 12 seasons with the Penguins, New York Rangers and Coyotes. He has reached the Stanley Cup playoffs seven times, notching 14 points in 52 games.

    Rozsival has twice represented his country at the World Championship, including a gold medal run at the 2010 World Championship in Cologne where he collected two assists in nine games.
    Kuc reported 1 year at $2mil

    (Assist goes to IceHogFan who made me aware of the signing)

    I like this signing. It adds quality depth to the blueline and the Blackhawks definitely have a pretty deep blueline at this point. He isn't afraid to throw his body around (although he doesn't as much as he used to), should help the PK, and is willing to block shots.

    I really think, more than ever, that we see Hammer or Montador leave Chicago by the time the season starts (whenever that happens).

    An actual move. Wow.

    Decent depth guy. Probably means goodbye to Monty or Hammer.

    Very good move, much better than our depth signings of last year. Guy can actually play 3/4 without hurting you and is a great 5/6/PK guy

    At the very least, it could mean Monty hits LTIR. JJ thinks it could be Leddy or Hammer in a package for E. Kane. I heard from a friend at the Hawks it could be Leddy for PK Subban. Much rather, E. Kane of course but I'd gladly take Subban for Leddy.
