Ah, camp... scraped knees, swimming, sailing, arts and crafts, ghost stories, and homesick letters to Mom?

It begins anew...
It begins anew...

In Bruins news you can use:

  • At a glance... the camp schedule, and the roster. There will be a "State of the Bruins" panel tonight at 5:30 p.m. today. [ESPN]
  • Don't count on tonight's panel settling any of these nagging issues, though. [ProvidenceJournal]
  • Remember, Torey Krug and Reilly Smith are NOT HOLDING OUT, they're technically unemployed. The other burning questions are who will push for a spot, and what places will veterans slot into. Take Loui Eriksson, for example... [WEEI]
  • There is no more Merlot, and more opportunity for youngsters to snag roster spots from veterans. Tough decisions are ahead, and some of those will be good for the team overall. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Dennis Seidenberg is ready to go, Milan Lucic is still healing. Tuukka Rask will use last year's early exit as motivation, and he sees a better defense ahead. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Look into the crystal ball- this season's outlook for the Bruins. Factoid: Number 44 missed the final 44 games last season due to his injury. [TSN]
  • Anton Blidh returns from Bruins rookie camp to Frölunda steeled to stand up for himself, if the situation calls for it. His coach sees him as ready to break through. (Google translation from Swedish) [Expressen]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • The City of Boston leads by taking active steps to protect Division I players participating in football, ice hockey, and lacrosse from head injury. Next up, a player's bill of rights. [CBSSports]
  • Malcolm Subban 's charming younger brother cheerily displays his dental damage, which was NOT the result of an on-ice incident. Is he auditioning for a part in Dumb and Dumber To? [NESN]
  • Advice on drafting a fantasy team, good enough for your brother-in-law. #4- do not pronounce the name "Bi-fou-gli-enne." #11- Do not confuse Nicklas Backstrom with Nicklas Backstrom, as one is a forward, the other a goalie. Simple! (Google translation from French, scroll waaaay down) [Canoe]
  • On the Spott... the new Maple Leafs assistant coach can't seem to get Phil Kessel to buy in to a new strategy. [TheStar]
  • Be excellent! Improve at the start of this NHL season by adopting these resolutions. Bobby Robins would be proud. [Grantland]
  • Ilya Bryzgalov has just received the break he has been looking for, apparently one Josh Harding self-inflicted in ire. [EdmontonJournal]
  • The New York Rangers have gone all high-tech! Jerseys will be chipped, and players will be responsible to review their shifts on video post game. [SNYRangersBlog]
  • The 'swawesome hockey players of mythical Samwell College in Massachusetts are darned entertaining, on and off ice. You should catch up and follow the team into the second season of this terrific comic. [OMGCheckPlease]
  • Team Canada defenseman Tessa Bonhomme has retired. [MedicineHatNews]
  • Have a peek at some archival footage used in the documentary "Red Army." [TheHockeyNews]
  • Catch up with Manon Rheaume, and hear how her father/coach slipped her into her first game at the tender age of 5. (Video, 26:43) [YouTube]
  • I'll drink to that! Quaff Original Six cocktails by following these recipes courtesy of The 9ines Neighborhood Bar of Worcester, MA. [ThePinkPuck]
