A few of the predictions are a little bold, but the ending looks good.

If anyone is going to tell them all I'm still alive, it's got to be you, because you've always done...

If anyone is going to tell them all I'm still alive, it's got to be you, because you've always done it for me. Here we go again. They're trying to kill me before I'm dead. I come to Quebec to spend some time with my family and they say I'm dead. I'm not dead, far (expletive) from it. They've had me dead since June. Tell them I'm alive. Set them straight.

Pat Burns tells Bob McKenzie of TSN that he's decidedly not dead. Please read the whole article by McKenzie - it's one of the best things you can read today.

Eh, its nothing to creative, It looks like the default Devils mask from NHL11 with moose added. Although i just realized that the moose is in a devil costume, thats kinda funny.

Add Little G to the growing list of Ex-Devils who have become the captain of their new team.... It's a pretty big honor to be the Captain of the Canadiens, some real good company there.

MacLean talks lines, Elias likely to play LW

11

I know this was on Fire and Ice, but I found it on Sportsnet first, and since they're a reliable source, I chose their article. Anyway, MacLean basically suggested that although this isn't set in stone, he will probably have three elite LW. My guess at the Devils' lines to start the season would be: Parise-Zajac-Clarkson Kovalchuk-Zubrus-TEDENBY (he reportedly practiced at RW) Elias-Arnott-Rolston Now that looks better, to me, than stacking six forwards at different positions. I personally like this better, but again, none of this is set in stone.
