<li> He joins a number of his Providence colleagues. Might we see an all-PBruin line? Here's a snapshot of the current working roster. [<a href="http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/bruins/post/_/id/10844/krejci-marchand-not-at-monday-practice">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> Does Tyler Seguin lack "hunger" for the game this season? [<a href="http://www.csnne.com/pages/video?PID=uvXM2-SY3EQ6bPzE05_XVNQnqRm1ALlw8_AJa0">CSNNE</a>]</li>

<li> And doesn't the officiating seem a bit... rusty... post lockout? [<a href="http://thehockeywriters.com/nhl-discipline-consistency-still-locked-out/">TheHockeyWriters</a>]</li>
