Monday links: Pens prospects lose to Leafs 3-1, Daryl Sydor and the Blues, Alfredsson says trade Heatley

  • There's been a lot of buzz around Maple Leaf camp regarding prospect goaltender Jonas Gustavsson.  He made his debut yesterday against the Pens prospects as part of the prospect tourney in Kitchener, Ontario.  The Monster, as he tends to be called, definitely made a strong first impression, stopping 36 of 37 shots in a 3-1 win for Toronto.  One of those saves just happened to be a pretty glove move on an Eric Tangradi shot that looked like it was meant for mesh.  In the end the only Pens goal came from Joe Vitale on a tip in.  Video highlights available if you scroll the right sidebar on TSN.  Pens play Ottawa prospects tonight.  [Maple Leafs]

  • The St. Louis Blues have extended a camp invite to former Penguin Daryl Sydor.  He's comfortable in looking for a veteran leadership sort of role and likely won't cost the Blues much in terms of cap space.  Young team needs experienced leader.  It's worked before.  [TSN]
  • Will Dany Heatley start the season with Ottawa?  That still remains unseen.  But if teammate Daniel Alfredsson had his way he'd have Heatley on the trading block already.  Although he does admit it's easier said than done.  Really?  Is it?  We couldn't tell.  [CBC]
  • Remember that economist last week who said the Coyotes could be relocated for roughly $12-$13 million?  Looks like the NHL has another number in mind.  The league claims it'll cost anywhere between $101 to $195 million to move the Coyotes out of Phoenix.  That's a little over ten times the economist's projection with more than a $94 million gap.  That's like your boss saying he's going to give you a raise anywhere between 3% or 90%.  [From the Rink]
