Morning Flurries: Avalanche win again and the Penguins make a bad decision

NHL: Preseason-Colorado Avalanche at Dallas Stars Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Colorado Avalanche

The Avs went into Dallas with a large portion of their regular lineup and came away with a 4-2 victory. For those of you that didn’t get to listen to the game on the radio, we’ve got a great recap for you.

It hasn’t been announced yet but yesterday evening Conor Timmins and the Soo Greyhounds were informed that the defender would be on his way back to the OHL today.

In terms of announced cuts, before the game, the team made a large group of cuts, sending 13 players to San Antonio in time for their camp to open tomorrow.

Our Lightning fan friends over at Raw Charge used their podcast this week to preview the Central Division. They were gracious enough to have me on as a guest and we went into depth about not only the Avs but each team in their division.

Around the hockey world

The Pittsburgh Penguins are making a mistake. They’re either being incredibly tone-deaf, or worse. One of the best in the business, TSN’s Bob McKenzie put it rather perfectly when he was asked if he’d make the same decision as the Pens.

In less serious news, it looks as though the Red Wings will be starting the season without one of their better young forwards as it’s being reported by Helene St. James that Andreas Athanasiou hasn’t spoken with the team about a contract in ten days. It’s fun to see the Red Wings suffer.

Speaking of teams that are suffering, the New York Islanders might have hit another snag in their attempt to find a new home. The team has been looking at the Belmont Park location to build a new arena, but there was a report yesterday that they will have some competition for the site. The MLS franchise, New York City FC is planning on putting in a bid to buy the property, with the intention of building a soccer stadium.
