Saturday links: Simon Despres getting attention, Luca Caputi? Brandon Dubinsky waits on Rangers

  • REMINDER: TICKETS ON SALE AT 10AM TODAY!!!
  • Penguins first round pick (30th overall) Simon Despres is garnering a lot of attention.  It's been said he needs to fire the puck on net a bit more, but there's no denying the potential is there to mold.  [Post-Gazette]
  • Is there a place for Luca Caputi in this year's lineup?  Is he a safe fill-in until Max Talbot returns from shoulder surgery in November?  The FF boys tackle the topic.  [Faceoff Factor]
  • The Rangers' Brandon Dubinsky isn't happy with making only $522,500 and plans to sit out of camp until the team gives him more consideration - and by consideration I mean money.  He's managed to consistently put up at least 40 points over the past two seasons.  You can work with a guy like him - into a situation where he can contribute or as a catalyst to other players.  However, Glen Sather and the New York Rangers might just find a way to screw it up.  [Blueshirt Banter]
  • The Flyers unveiled its Winter Classic retro jersey yesterday.  Very creative. /sarcasm  Apparantly the only difference is a black nameplate.  [NHL.com]
  • Getting to know the 2009-10 Detroit Red Wings.  [PuckDaddy]
