Fish for Breakfast - May 25

Welcome to the second edition of "Fish for Breakfast". There's not a lot of Penguins' news to talk about, but with the scouting combine getting underway this week, there will hopefully be more news about our team tomorrow.

  • Dustin Byfuglien of the Blackhawks is not only emerging as a top power forward this playoffs, but has let the world know through NHL.com headlines that both his first and last names are "incredibly useful in making awesome puns".
  • Steven Ovadia of Puck Daddy takes a quick look at who the eliminated teams root for in the playoffs. For example, the Anaheim Ducks have quickly shifted from cheering for the Boston Bruins over the Flyers last round to rooting for the Flyers in the Stanley Cup Finals. A Stanley Cup by Philadelphia will net the Ducks a fourth-round draft pick as a condition in the Chris Pronger trade. Anaheim had previously hoped the Flyers would fall to the Bruins as the Ducks own the Flyers' first round draft pick this year, also acquired as part of the Pronger deal. The first round selection will now be either 29th or 30th overall with the Flyers advancing to the Finals, instead of the 15th overall pick.
  • The New York Islanders have cancelled a previously scheduled nine-day trip in mid-September to China, after owner Charles Wang became angry when the NHLPA started their standard protocol of "making sure logistics including arenas, transportation, and lodging met the union’s standards". The trip was supposed to cover a portion of the Islanders' training camp in Wang's home country as one of his several initiatives to promote hockey in China.
