Scavenging the Internets – Heatley, Sutter, and God Willing, Stuff I Have Not Already Tired Of

hyena

It’s been two days, and already I tire of the Heatley rumours. That said, here are a few of the takes from around the blogosphere:

Despite all the rumours of Brent Sutter going to work for his brother in Calgary, Jim Matheson has made a rather bold statement: “Sutter will not be joining brother Darryl in Calgary.” Matheson knows what he’s talking about, I’m sure, and when he says this I’m convinced. He also gets a quote on Brent Sutter’s connection to Edmonton:

“I heard all these rumours with Edmonton, too, before they hired their staff. All the speculation because it’s an hour and 15 minutes from my farm. I had nothing to do with the Edmonton Oilers.”

And speaking of the Sutter family, Pat Quinn made a comment the other day that just begs for tildes. Here’s what Quinn said:

“They’ll have someone new in here whether it may be a Sutter coming back in, I don’t know that. They’re a wonderful family and a big family, so maybe they’ll put all seven back there.”

And here it is again, with a minor fix:

~They’ll have someone new in here whether it may be a Sutter coming back in, I don’t know that. They’re a wonderful family and a big family, so maybe they’ll put all seven back there.~

Better, yes?

With the NHL Entry Draft coming up, there are a lot of unheralded prospects who are about to be thrust into the spotlight. There are, fortunately people who follow junior hockey and are willing to tell us things; if anyone’s interested there are two sites I’d recommend:

NHL Draft Notes is written by Red Line Report’s Michael Remmerde. He’s based out of Western Canada and is in the process of doing profiles on 60 draft-eligible players in the region.

OHL Prospects is a group blog which gets contributions from a pair of former Hockey’s Future writers and a fan, all three of whom follow the Ontario Hockey League closely.

Finally, if you’re sick of everything Dany Heatley or Brent Sutter related, here are some articles worth checking out:

    I linked to his site because I thought he would have his interview with Dreger up there..but I can't find it…WTF…Gregor how come no clips from him or the coaches yesterday…

    @ Dave:
    I just dont want the Oilers to do what the Islanders did to get Yashin. Not that Heatley is Yashin, but still. Things of value need to be given up, no doubt, but doing almost anything to get the deal done leaves room for a little concern.
