Sandie let me do the Cupcakes again and I decided to take the opportunity to hide a super-secret message in them.
- First day of camp for the Monsters. There's some nice photos on their photo stream on Flickr.
- U mad, Andrew Ladd? Ladd changes his mind on signing with the KHL.
- Cancelled the first two weeks of the season. Awesome!
- Kuwai from Japan is among the players invited to the Cutthroats camp on Monday
- You probably didn't know that Joe Sacco had an artistic side, right?
- Old friends Peter Budaj and Marek Svatos are mentioned along with Paul Stastny in a list of players who have been working out at the University of Denver (towards the end)
- Uh, this sounds a bit worrying. Duncan Siemens has been stripped of the C (and it wasn't even given to Milan Hejduk!). Personally, I'm more concerned about the part about him being scratched for missing team meetings.
- Getting ready for your fantasy draft? Sergei Feldman (that's a porn name, right?) picks Hejduk as a great sleeper pick. Stick tap to Mile High Sports who, wisely, disagree.
- Another Cody McCleod? But I thought there could be only one?
- Rumors are flying that former Monster Danny Richmond may be leaving the Lahti Penguins.
- YouTube video posted as a Fan Shot yesterday. What you won't hear during the lockout. Worth a click.
