  • NHL.com lists Sidney Crosby as the #1 Canadian player in the game today, which is hard to argue.  He won the Cup.  Marc-Andre Fleury checks in at #4, so get ready for people to whine that's too high.  [NHL]
  • A pic of the Consol Energy Center, that baby's really coming together now. [DUchemist]
  • In what can only be good news for Marc-Andre Fleury, Cam Ward was held out of Team Canada's practice today.  With five goalies fighting for practice time now looks like four.  [Chris Johnston's twitter]
  • Also from the same twitter, as you read yesterday on Pensburgh Sidney Crosby did end up practicing with Jarome Iginla and Rick Nash at practice.  Sid's sure come a far way from playing with guys like Andy Hilbert and Colby Armstrong, huh? [Chris Johnston]
  • Today in tormenting Capital fans: Some Washington fans find a good natured Crosby-centric surprise of new decorations in their second home in the Canadian maritimes.  Alex Ovechkin themed vandalism on Penguin fan houses in Siberia reportedly much more rare.  [On Frozen Blog]
  • THN ranks some minor league jerseys...Quad City Mallards probably are #1 or last for most folks.  (Last here). [The Hockey News]
  • Detroit, San Jose and Ottawa remain over the upper limit for the salary cap and still need to do a little wrangling to get under it by October. [From the Rink]
  • Dominik at Lighthouse Hockey is ready to move forward when it comes to relying on Rick DiPietro's shaky health.  Can't say I blame him, it is sad that DiPietro's career has basically ground to a halt though.
  • Alex Tanguay, probably the best available free agent, may be close to returning to Colorado. [Bleacher Report]
  • The were rumors that the Montreal Canadiens might host their Nov 28th game against the Washington Capitals, but there's a CFL game too soon to make an ice rink outside.  Bummer.  [TSN]
  • Finally, if you've procrastinated on buying the cornucopia of 2009 Stanley Cup championship gear, NHL.com is 15% site-wide and offering free shipping if you buy enough! [NHL.com]
