The Devils made it to game six of the Stanley Cup finals this June. The year before they finished 22nd overall in the league, won the draft lottery and moved up to select Adam Larsson 4th overall. Prior to that the Devils have been a model of a consistent and competitive franchise. Full steam ahead, then for these Devils? Maybe if your name is Edward Smith.

Friday night, Edmonton Oilers forward Ben Eager got into an altercation with a doorman at a bar in Toronto. Details are a little slim and I don't really care what happened. Bar fights happen every night all across Canada but when they involve a NHL player, especially during a lock out, it becomes big news.

Lots of KHL goodness today. Malkin puts up 4 points and helps Nikolai Kulemin get two of his own, Ovechkin scores and helps Nicklas Backstrom get his first KHL point, and he gets a little punchy, too.

While I admire those churning out KHL reports, AHL updates and even season point projections (without any of us having the first clue if we'll have an NHL season or how many games it'll be), I don't see a single issue I can hang a whole item on, so I won't even try.

In part one of my interview with Taylor Hall, he talked about his shoulder rehab and how much stronger he felt. Today he discusses leadership, bag skates, chirping Strudwick and he had some smart observations about young kids playing hockey.
