[EHM 2018-10-10] Tier 2 and 3 Exhibition

    Danault(7)-Goldobin(9)-Reway(7)
    Loiseau(7)-Hudon(7)-D'Agostini(6)
    Paquette(7)-Athanasiou(8)-Hyman(8)
    Pacan(7)-Broll(7)-Ranger(6)
    Kulak(8)-Juulsen(8)
    Perry(7)-Nygren(7)
    Bindulis(6)-Muller(7)
    Ruck(9)
    Lindgren(-)

Ranger took on Martin in a fight late in the first period. It started rough for Ranger who had trouble connecting and Martin landed a flurry of blows. Ranger finally got steady and started connecting so Martin jockeyed for position and they both went down. Easily Martin's win.

Ruck got a shutout.

[EHM 2018-10-09] Beastly Decisions

Brampton has some decisions to make this week and will need to make space for some players from St. John's soon.

Will Logan Brown come down to play Centre now that he cleared waivers? Scherbak is most certainly coming. Potential opening day lineup...

[2018-10-08 DWUniverse] Smith to Capaldi

In readiness for the new season, I'm trying to catch up. So we watched THE: Day of the Doctor, Night of the Doctor and Time of the Doctor in that order (which is incorrect as Night occurs before Day); finally starting Deep Breath.

Basically skipped all of The Impossible Girl story arc. We did see Asylum and Dinos on a Spaceship some time back before we took a Doctor Who break.

[EHM 2018-10-08] Morale Shinny

Tier 3

The Brampton Beast are ranked 20th out of 27 in the Season Preview with Justin Baker MVP and Jerry Kuhn as the key arrival.

A contract is offered to Ryan Kyle. Three more exhibition games until the season starts with a game of shinny after that.

Tier 2

The IceCaps have shinny with the Habs today and just two more exhibition games before the season starts.

[EHM 2018-10-07] Final Exhibition Jets 0 @ Habs 4

"So Mikko, we had high hopes and believe that you are an excellent hockey player and person. After an exciting camp and with the new season about to begin it appears our initial thoughts are not working out. Depending on your wishes, we can mutually disolve the contract, put you on waivers, or pay out a release. It's completely up to you."

Mikko Koivu was put on waivers.

[EHM 2018-10-05] Exhibition Twelve Leafs 1 @ Habs 4

Tyler Bozak came as a try-out player for a week.

    Domi(8)-Lehkonen(8)-Dadanov(7)
    Bozak(7)-Rychel(7)-Byron(7)
    Thornton(8)-Dawes(8)-Gallagher(9)
    Pezzetta(8)-Tatar(8)-Reaves(8)
    Valiev(7)-Weber(8)
    Alzner(8)-Green(7)
    Sergachev(8)-Honka(8)
    Price(8)
    Zenko(-)
    IR-Shipachyov DtD
    HS-Deslauriers-Ritchie-Jokinen-Hischier-Koivu-Baun

Baun and Jokinen are try-outs so they don't count against the player cap. There is also no extra defenseman being carried, so we have three forwards.

[EHM 2018-10-04b] Exhibition Eleven Sens 3 @ Habs 6

Trade
Defensive LD-man Simon Bourque was traded to Calgary for LD Brett Kulak who arrived lacking game fitness and was sent to the farm.

This may be Koivu's last game to prove himself.

[EHM 2018-10-04] Exhibition Nine-Ten

Exhibition Nine Devils 4 @ Habs 7

    Hischier(10)-Domi(10)-Dadanov(10)
    Byron(8)-Rychel(9)-Jokinen(7)
    Thornton(8)-Dawes(8)-Reaves(6)
    Koivu(6)-Ritchie(8)-Tatar(8)
    Valiev(10)-Weber(7)
    Alzner(7)-Green(8)
    Ouellet(6)-Honka(6)
    Zenko(6)
    Price(-)

Green just edged out Weber for the most ice-time for defense and Rychel took it for offense. Ouellett, Ritchie and Tatar had the least.

Categorically Drinking

Things change with time.....
The last time I did this was May 20, 2009 -

Winter/Relaxing Soft Drink: Diet Caffeine Free Great Value Cola (was Diet Mugs Root Beer but it's unavailable here now)
Refreshing Summer Soft Drink: Diet Tonic Water (was Diet Canada Dry Ginger Ale, which is still awesome)

[EHM 2018-10-03b] Exhibition Eight - Kings 2 @ Habs 1

RFA Ouellet accepted a four year contract from the Habs worth an average 1.95M. This will take some pressure off DeSimone although it will also limit DeSimone's chances of making the pro club.
