UPDATE 10/25/10 @ 11:01 AM:  Pavelec has come off of IR with backup Peter Mannino sent back to the Chicago Wolves of the AHL.  While there has been no immediate news as to when the young Slovak will return, coming off IR seems like an excellent start. UPDATE 10/19/10 @ 1:31 PM:  Pavelec returned to…

Nightly Scrap: Avs squeak by Red Wings in shootout

Pavelec played a turbulent game between the pipes last season,…

Fantasy Season in Review: Nashville Predators

Offensive Corps: The Predators tend to move around their offensive weapons and shuffle lines relatively often.  Due to this, only Steve Sullivan and Patric Hornqvist even eclipsed the 50 point plateau.  This lack of star-power should in no way be a knock on the team as coach Barry Trotz managed to get everything he could…

Mason Expected to Take Reduced Role with Atlanta

In what likely means the end of Johan Hedberg’s chances of resigning with the Thrashers, Atlanta GM Rick Dudley locked up Chris Mason for two years at $1.85-million per.  Mason capped off his second straight winning season with a 30-22-8 record and 2.53 GAA and finds himself in a familiar role – trying to bring…
