    15. One scout, who sees the Oilers a lot, on Taylor Hall's potential: "He has barely scratched the surface."

    Couldnt agree more!

    Oh, and that tidbit about Doan was really interesting. What a class guy.

    9. Shane Doan surpassed Teppo Numminen as his franchise's all-time games played leader. During the lockout, the Coyotes' trainers/equipment staff lost their medical insurance. Doan heard about it, got in touch with Human Resources, and quietly paid for it. It was years before they found out. That's class.

    Doan is easily one of the best all around guys in the league.

    FANTASTIC edition!

    The Doan mention was awesome but so were these:

    14. Pegula's said all the right things over the past week, but as the team starts a seven-game, 11-day road trip, he's going to begin Stage 1 of a dressing room remodelling. New carpet, paint, etc. Little things like that go a long way.
    16. By the way, Buffalo isn't the only team about to beef up its scouting. Bob Murray is planning to upgrade his team's department, and the Ducks already have a good reputation.
    Brian Burke actually "beef up" his scouting staff upon arrival too

    17. Murray didn't interview Cam Fowler at the NHL combine, but snared the Rookie-of-the-Year contender when the defenceman fell to 12th in the draft. Murray didn't need to talk to Fowler, because he'd coached him in minor hockey. Nice steal.
    Interesting.

    If Millbury thinks it's irrelevant then I guarantee it is relevant. What that guy knows about managing an NHL team could be written on the inside of a matchbook with a grease pencil.

    I think it's only fair at this time to point out that both the matchbook and the grease pencil were obtained for the Isles by then GM Millbury,

    who in a bit of last minute brinksmanship, insisted that they be included by the Florida Panthers along with Oleg Kvasha whom he was in the process of pilfering (along with Mark Parish) for the mere pittance of Olli Jokinen and Roberto Luongo. Two players who no longer fit his plans.

    It was of course, only later that the Panthers discovered, much to their chagrin, that Milbury would have happilly made the trade anyway, and that they had in effect been suckered into giving away both the matchbook and the grease pencil for nothing.

    In retropspect the trade has come to be viewed as one of the most lobsided in NHL history, and is still refered to today by thousands of adoring Islanders fans who point to it as one of Millbury's most successful deals.
