Yes, I know, I've been AWOL for a while, dealing with final exams and starting a new job and whatnot. Here are a few evening updates:
- Added (12:41 pm Tuesday): Puck Worlds notices an interesting trend between the world's best nations rankings and hockey.
- From Dan Murphy on Twitter: "(Willie Mitchell) has worked out for the Canucks, Sharks and Kings. Testing went very well. No (confirmation) on LA offer, (Willie) now expected to visit (Washington)"
- Canadiens acquired goalie Karri Ramo from the Lightning in exchange for Cedrick Desjardins.
- Blackhawks re-signed Nick Boynton to a 1-year contract.
- The Flyers have entered an affiliate agreement with the Greenville Road Warriors of the ECHL.
- Is it time to cut out the goalie trapezoid?
