• On Ron Hextall’s tenure so far in Pittsburgh: “Just based on nothing more than historical track record here and moves we have actually seen get made in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Hextall seems incredibly risk averse. He seems more fearful of a deal going wrong and the potential downside of a significant trade or signing than the potential reward that could come from such a deal. That might explain why Rust’s contract got done before Evgeni Malkin or Kris Letang. Or why he was so quick to re-sign Carter.” [Pensburgh]
• Toronto Six goaltender Carly Jackson is just getting started and is eyeing an Isobel Cup. [The Ice Garden]
