He could actually just say "Hodor" over and over again and I wouldn't give a *poo poo*. As long as he wins hockey games.

Also Nick Grossmannn has added a third "n" to the end of his name.

Yeah. The Kindle version sounded dumb to me too.

Hitch made him change it because this version has more emphasis on the D.

"He's been outstanding. He's been one of our best players in camp," said GM Jim Nill. "He's feeling very well. He's had no issues."

Doctors reattached a displaced bone in Janmark's left knee with screws one year ago, and then removed the screws this past spring. Janmark spent the summer working to get ready for camp and the preseason, which would be a big test since osteochondritis dissecans is uncharted territory for a pro hockey player.

"No [issues]," Janmark said. "I feel better in my right knee, but I have no limitations on the ice. I feel great. It's been positive so far, so I am not too worried about it."

I have a really bad feeling about this season. I’m looking over the names on the roster and having a very had time coming up with new puns. Now that Moen is gone the flow of puns have slowed down to a drip.

Shades of '99 with Hitch naming 4 alternate captains:

Seguin and Klingberg at home.
Spezza and Radulov on the road.

Looks like there's going to be a forward called up. Nill is making room by waiving Cracknell.

I agree, Cracknell's four minutes of ice time last night was definitely the problem.

Yeah. Cracknell must have cracked Kari's glass brain with all the sitting on the bench he did.

The Rangers claimed Cracknell, so a roster spot is free.

Obviously they’re planning to move Honka to forward.

Stars Facebook fans are acting like the team just lost Wayne Gretzky for nothing. I mean, Cracknell was a fourth liner who was on the team for all of one season. I don't get the attachment.

He was fun to watch once every ten games.

He'll probably slot into NY's top six now.

How about calling up Gurianov? Elie and Gemel are nice "energy" guys, Gurianov could have top six forward potential, which we are going to need when Ritchie exhausts the supply of extra panes of glass for behind the goal and Janmark's knee explodes.

The 9.5 million boat anchor is a far bigger issue then Ritchie.

Maybe so, but I’m with him when it comes to a call up. They have a big supply of speedy checking players. I’d rather see them call up a more skilled guy to try to add some goal scoring potential.

Yeah. Nobody cried when we traded Lauri Korpikoski, who is about the same player.

On the all time Stars list, Cracknell rates somewhere between Tomas Vincour and Steve Begin.

Since they're replacing Hanzal in the lineup, it'll probably be either Dickinson or Hintz.

Also, there's the possibility that since they tried to send Cracknell down instead of Honka (who didn't have to clear waivers to get sent down), that Honka's debut might be soon.

Sounds like Hamhuis is nursing a groin injury. It would be damn funny, of course, if Hitch played Pateryn in his place.

Cracknell was a casualty of the 8 Dman roster. Made worse by the fact that Honka is not playing.
