Thursday links: Penguins training camp roster, Evgeni Malkin's speech to Russia, Roberto Luongo locked up in Vancouver

  • The Penguins training camp roster landed yesterday afternoon.  A bunch of regulars are [obviously] on there, but a few new names also make the list.  Citizens Voice writer Jonathan Bombulie knows his Wilkes-Barre Scranton beat like no other.  If you want some inside notes on the new guys, I'd advise keeping an eye on his updates.  [Citizens Voice]
  • Yesterday we were fortunate enough to see pictures of Evgeni Malkin journeying home to Magnitogorsk to show off the Cup.  Pittsburgh Sports and Mini Ponies one-ups everyone with video of Geno's speech to the fans, complete with English translation.  He also apparantly played a shift with his old team and scored what appears to be a fixed goal before parading around the ice with the Cup.  [PSAMP]
  • Outside of Pittsburgh you no doubt heard about the huge signing to come out of what appeared to be a week's worth of discussion.  The Vancouver Canucks locked up their goaltender - some guy named Roberto Luongo - in a ridiculous 12-year deal that will bring him close to $64 million.  For the full breakdown of the deal, check this out.  [Nucks Misconduct]
  • Former Blue Jacket/Ranger Nik Zherdev would appear to be interesting in an NHL team.  One of those destinations may be Atlanta.  Does a Zherdev/Kovalchuk combo sound a bit saucy to you?  [Bird Watcher's Anonymous]
  • For the hockey enthusiast and readers out there, author Todd Denault discusses his book "The Man Who Changed the Face of Hockey," a story about legendary Montreal goaltender Jacques Plante, with Robert from Habs Eyes on the Prize.  There's sure to be something fun and interesting in a book that discusses the guy who literally became the first goaltender to wear a mask.  The cover of the book shouldn't leave you guessing why.  Hopefully I can land a copy somewhere.  [Habs Eyes on the Prize]
