Pens Points: Mid-week goings-on

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Chase Utley and I are both on the DL with strained oblique muscles. At least I know how he did it. Anyways, working from home today (if you count listening in on interminable conference calls as working). As the off-season is upon us, here are some mid-week goings-on around the hockey world:

Penguins announce 2013 preseason schedule. They open at Columbus on September 15th, and will play Columbus, Detroit, and Chicago twice. (Pens Preseason Schedule)

• Scott Cullen at TSN offers a solid off-season game plan for the Penguins. Interesting stuff here. (TSN)

• Must-read: Elliotte Friedman's 30 Thoughts on NHL Buyouts. (CBCSports)

• PensNation profiles prospect Darnell Nurse. (PensNation)

Jussi Jokinen is named to Finland's Olympic Camp roster. (PHT)

• In contrast, Miikka Kiprusoff is Finnished. (TheScore)

• FA Andrew Ference won't be back with Bruins. (TSNNE)

Ilya Bryzgalov is bought out by the Flyers. The Hockey Guys look back. Worth reading. (THG)

• The John Tortorella era begins in Vancouver. Kinder, gentler Torts answered questions from fans. In case you were wondering, the twins will be asked to block shots and kill penalties. (nhl.com)

• Last, but definitely not least: that Taiwanese animation of Stanley Cup Finals. (YouTube)
