• The Lake Erie Monster has hit the North Coast Harbour in the form of this cool, creepy inflatable thing. If you take a picture of it and tag the photo properly, you get two free tickets to a November home game. [Lake Erie Monsters]

• Patrick Roy's six consecutive victories to start his NHL coaching career tie him for the league record. [Denver Post]

• Mike Yeo talks Dany Heatley, who appears to have the Minnesota Wild coach very frustrated: “After every game, we look at our lines and we say what do we need to do going forward, and every game we’ll evaluate it. "I’m not going to say he’s at his best right now. I’m not, for sure. But I also know that he’s capable of more, and I also know that we need him right now. It’s easy to say, ‘Let’s just take him out,’ but with who? Who do you put in instead? The easy thing to do is for us to just give up, but that’s not what we’re going to do. We’re going to keep trying to push him and keep trying to get him better and keep trying to work with him because we know what he’s capable of.” [Star Tribune]

• Morgan Rielly, Matt Dumba, and Olli Maatta have all made strong cases to remain in the NHL. [Buzzing the Net]
