This is a Pointless Exercise

But still I find myself thinking about it. Because it’s August. The following jersey numbers are unclaimed as of now: 4 – last worn by Rob Blake. Reserved for Hickey? 10 – last worn by Alyn McCauley. Reserved for Schenn? 12 – last worn by POS 19 – last worn by Kyle Calder 21 – last…

Via Matthew Barry: Lombardi tells Purcell to get to the blue paint, talks Calder and Army, and gives Boyle the Teeniest Wisp of a Last Chance Not to Suck

There are still many questions to be answered up front. Is Purcell ready to take it to the next level? “We’ve driven into him “you’ve got to get to the blue and you’ve got to pay the price””. Will Moulson be back? Will there be several surprises this season as we had with Wayne Simmonds…

Monarchs on NHLHD…

Quisp vs. Troll

I’m digging into the archives in search of time-capsule material from the Dawn of Lombardi or whatever we’re calling it. Here’s the first one I came upon. It’s from the old “Inside the Kings” site, comments section, December 3, 2008. The post was titled “World Juniors Roster,” and announced that Thomas Hickey and Colten Teubert…
