via tweets from David Pollak, SJSharks says Raffi Torres will miss first few months of season after repeat surgery on right knee  because of infection.

Taylor Hall Or Tyler Seguin?
from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet, The Taylor versus Tyler drama at the 2010 draft was, really, driven more by alliteration than uncertainty. Taylor Hall may not have been a slam-dunk first-overall pick ahead of fast-rising Tyler Seguin, but by the time the Edmonton Oilers brass walked to the stage in Los Angeles, it would’ve been genuinely surprising to hear them call a name other than Hall’s. Four years later, however, you can make cracking cases for both players as preferab...

New Islanders Owners Can Focus On Hockey

On these very pages back then, one fan was quoted as saying, "What does this mean? Hope." Another said, "Things can only get better." We all...

Afternoon Line
"He's a good player, but he remains a dangerous defender. It can get five goals, but allow five so the score would be equal. I always compare it to Brian Leetch because he also wants to play a more attacking style. It does not always take the right decisions and plays just like he did on the streets as a child." -Alex Kovalev on P.K. Subban.  More at RDS (translated). thanks to The Score for the pointer

"I think they’re one of the strongest built teams in the league. With them, they have amazing star power surrounded with good quality core players.

A quartet of Twitter-worthy stories
If you don't follow Paul on Twitter, you should for many reasons, including the fact that he posts a significant amount of content that doesn't quite make blog standards, generally because it's more "talk" than "news" (and we want you to get the news here on KK, not the fluffernutter). Three of those kinds stories follow: 1. Tomas Kaberle is 36, he posted a less-than-enthralling 4 goals, 20 assists and a -8 in 48 games with HC Kladno of the Czech Extraliga this past season (and 3 assists an...
