Quick Hits: Fly With The Blue Angels Edition

  • Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik had hernia surgery yesterday.
  • Patrick Lalime retired.  I wasn't aware he was as old as he is nor that he played 12 seasons.  Either way, a lot of commenters are comparing his stats to Osgood's and asking if he should be in the Hall of Fame as well.
  • Yzerman inched closer to wrapping up his team for next season yesterday by re-signing Teddy Purcell.  Purcell played in 81 games and had 51 points last year as a second line forward.  Yzerman is still two forwards short of a full roster.  Anyone have any guesses of who he might go after?  Yahoo's depth chart has him needing Left Wingers.
  • Chris Campoli, a very promising defenseman, was made an unrestricted free agent yesterday when the Blackhawks decided not to pay an agreed upon price for him.
  • In Red Wings news, Justin Abdelkader flew with the Blue Angels yesterday.  I don't think I could ever do it, could you?
  • Rory Boylen from The Hockey News continues his series of posts from the Pavel Datsyuk Hockey School in Ekaterinsburg Russia.
