Here are your Morning Puck Headlines: A glorious collection of news and views collected from the greatest blogosphere in sports and the few, the proud, the mainstream hockey media.
• When it comes to the recently waivered Nikolai Khabibulin, GM Bryan Murray says that $6.75 million is too rich for the Ottawa Senators. He also claims that Darth Gerber and his apprentice Alex Auld have played well enough this preseason to please Coach Craig Hartsburg. What he doesn't say is whether the Senators would sign Khabibulin for a reduced the price. Because we all know the answer. [Sportsnet]
• Speaking of Khabibulin: "If he clears waivers, the Hawks could send him to Rockford of the American Hockey League. The $6.75 million remaining on his contract would go with him and free up space for Tallon to go after a second-line center." We're chasing down some interesting stuff about Bulin this morning. [Chicago Tribune]
• Swedish legend and Senators star Daniel Alfredsson had a pillar of the Scandinuvium arena dedicated to him. Which is much more impressive than the Dean McAmmond urinal cake at the beer league rink in Grande Cache, Alberta. [Ottawa Sun]
• The perfect fuel for the female hockey player training session: Tim Horton's? [Female Hockey]
• Mike Green talks about getting paid by the Washington Capitals, which has given him the chance to "purchase a luxurious Arlington condominium and upgrade from a Nissan 350Z to a customized Cadillac Escalade." You know, for a guy named Green, an Escalade really isn't. [Washington Post]
