Zac Dalpe gives us the full version of the Jeff Skinner/Taylor Swift photo. Zac Dalpe who failed to make the Hurricanes and was just traded to the Canucks. THE CURSE LIVES. [Zac Dalpe]

John-Michael Liles clears waivers, and will report to the Toronto Marlies. [Leafs Nation]

• The Florida Panthers continue signing tryouts to one-year deals. This time it's Ryan Whitney, who spent camp on a tryout with the Blues. [TSN]

• That Lightning/Panthers rivalry never really happened, huh? Problem is you need both teams to be good at the same time for that to happen. [Raw Charge]

• Why Joe Colborne got traded, and why it's frustrating. [PPP]

• Douglas Murray is out with an upper body injury. Reports are that he'll be back in six weeks, but something tells me he'll be slower than expected. He always is. [Habs Eyes on the Prize]

Kirill Kabanov creates a beautiful goal in a preseason game versus the Senators. [Islanders Point Blank]

• 2012 2nd overall pick Ryan Murray made the Blue Jackets opening night roster, but more impressive is that Boone Jenner made the top line. [Blue Jackets Xtra]

• The redemption of Brad Richards is nearly complete. The centre is back to the first line, skating between Derek Stepan and Rick Nash to start the season. [NY Daily News]

• This piece on Steve Ott features a pretty great Jack Edwards zinger: “Steve Ott is safely underneath, out of harm’s way, protected by cinderblock walls and his 10-minute misconduct. He started it but he wasn’t around at the end, was he? The difference was the Hanson Brothers were funny.” [Buffalo News]

• Nigel Dawes: the NHL is always on my radar, but my heart is here. "Look, I'm always looking at my options, but I'm fully committed to you!" said a person that isn't fully committed to you. [KHL]

• Three big questions facing the Anaheim Ducks. [Anaheim Calling]

• Here's your college hockey preview, conference by conference. [United States of Hockey]

• Mike Komisarek was bad in Toronto. But he was worse in Montreal. [MC79 Hockey]

• Is Carolina's defence improved or just different? Third option is worse, and I'm gonna parachute in there somewhere. [Shutdown Line]

• Fear the Fin previews the Vancouver Canucks' season, taking a bunch of shots at the club in the process. But the irony in each jab is impossible to miss. Or so you'd think. [PITB]

• Colin Wilson is ready for more leadership in Nashville. [Smashville 24/7]

• In a surprise cut, Mika Zibanejad has been sent to the AHL. [Hockey Buzz]

• Someone stole equipment that belonged to sled hockey players. This person is the worst. [WFAA]

• Beau Bennett takes a pass from Sidney Crosby and scores. In a football game. The best part is Crosby describing the play to the media after in the same way he normally does. You can't un-program this guy.
