Post-lunch links: Penguins make cuts, Olaf Kolzig retires, Petr Forsberg mounting comeback?

I pushed back the afternoon links in favor of the more pertinent post regarding cuts to the Penguins roster.  If you haven't seen it already, Mr. Hooks Orpik has your rundown.  [One post down]

Also note: Pensburgh Fantasy Hockey League A will have its live draft tonight at 9pm.  League B drafted last night and took a little over an hour.  If you signed up to play, we'd love to have you on board for the live draft.  If not, don't cry when your auto-draft picks Mats Sundin and Nik Zherdev.

Jump for more headlines.

Toronto fans weren't the only ones who failed to realize it was only the preseason last night.  TicketMaster joined the pointless hype as well.  If their prices were any indication of the preseason match between Pittsburgh and Toronto, then last night was Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals.  [From the Rink]

Drafted junior players; how well do they do?  Mile High Hockey takes a look.  [MHH]

Olaf Kolzig has officially retired from the NHL.  Kudos to him for a solid career, and thanks to Japers' Rink reader Your Nation's Capital for sharing this funny video.  [Japers' Rink]

Petr Forsberg won't go away.  He's apparantly on board for a one-week tryout with Modo of the Swedish league.  Back to the NHL at some point?  Doubtful.  But hey, don't rule anything out.  [Denver Post]

Flyers prospect James vanRiemsdyk picked up two goals in Philly's 5-2 win over the Wings last night.  The man Philly fans have come to call JVR was drafted second overall in 2007 any may very likely crack the lineup this season.  [TSN]
