The Morning Skate for Monday, August 27

Quick hockey hits while you hit the coffee stand for one last wake-me-up on a grey, rainy Monday morning on the foothills of the Rockies:

  • The Russia-Canada Junior SuperSeries is underway. You can catch in on TSN's broadband link.
  • The Pred's Stevie Sullivan will be out 3 months after undergoing a second back operation since February. Hope Sullivan makes it back, cause he's got a little Saku Koivu in him! Sorry, scratch that, I meant they're both little.
  • A little news from last week: the Habs named Julien BriseBois, a 31-year-old lawyer and Capologist, the Buldogs' new GM. Love the background, hate the last name. One question: why is a lawyer in charge of the Habs farm team and not a "hockey guy" like Trevor Timmins?
  • The Pens and Sabres might play on outdoor game. This marks the NHL's official recognition that they are all out of new ideas. I hope Crosby wears a tuque, though.

p.s. HF29 in on 56K modem this week but don't worry, just like players shouldn't lose their place in the lineup due to injury, here at FHF no one loses their poisition due to vacations.
