  • Sad news Saturday night. Former Blues forward/enforcer Todd Ewen passed away at age 49. Circumstances around the reasoning for his passing are still sketchy. [SLGT]
  • The Hall of Fame Plaza was opened in front of Scottrade Center. Hopefully you found YOUR brick . . . plus this one, from Jordan Leopold and family. [SLGT FanShots]
  • What the hell do these coaches mean by "buy-in"? We get an attempt at an answer from buffa82. [SLGT]
  • Did you have photos from training camp this weekend? Help us out! [SLGT]
  • Speaking of camp . . . goalie Jake Allen was pulled from Saturday's festivities with back spasms. However, he came back to practice Sunday. [SLGT FanShots]
  • Yesterday, the victim was defenseman Robert Bortuzzo . . . and while it seems it's a lower body issue, no one's really saying much. [SLGT]
  • Good news, though. It seems Jay Bouwmeester might be fully healed (and I can confirm . . . he looked pretty good on Saturday). [Frozen Notes]
  • More good news . . . forward Jori Lehtera, who wasn't supposed to begin skating for another week or two, has been skating for several days on his own. So he's progressing quickly after surgery. [KMOV]
  • Vladimir Tarasenko spoke to Puck Daddy's Sean Leahy of Puck Daddy about stuff and things. [Puck Daddy]


  • The difference between Ray Shero and Lou Lamoriello being in charge in New Jersey is already evident. Ryan Lambert's Trending Topics. [Puck Daddy]
  • Islanders forward prospect Josh Ho-Sang overslept the first day of practice and was given a direct ticket back to the OHL because of it. GM Garth Snow says it's "enough of the bullshit" for Ho-Sang and that it's time for him to "grow up". [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Former Blues training camp invitee Ryan Whitney decided to retire from hockey at 32. The defenseman is two years younger than me. Jesus, I'm old. [Sportsnet]
  • From a former Oilers defenseman to a current one . . . Edmonton gave Oscar Klefbom a seven-year extension. [TSN]
  • Sabres coach Dan Bylsma still has a hard time not wanting to "kill" forward Patrick Kaleta for past transgressions. You're not alone, Dan. [USA Today / FTW!]

  • Paul Feig, director of the new Ghostbusters movie, says shooting is complete. [Nerdist]

  • The complete list of Emmy winners last night. [CNN]


A jazz version of The Sound of Music's "My Favorite Things", one I'm sure even Julie Andrews would be proud of:
