Daily Dosage - August 2, 2008

Daily Diarrhea

Another slow news day yesterday so we're only going to write a quick one today and continue working on an article to post soon...

Depending on what source you believe the Newfie, Ryane Clowe, has either re-signed or is about to re-sign with San Jose.  This guy was forgotten about last year cause he missed so much time over the past 2 seasons with foot/groin/knee issues but he came back strong in the playoffs and was one of SJs better players.  If it wasn't for the injuries, we'd be promoting this guy cause he could end up on a good line this year depending on where coach Todd McLellan slots him.

Little man Geoff Platt, who has spent the last few seasons trying to break into the Columbus and Anaheim lineups has decided to go the euro route and will play in Finland next year.

Nashville GM David Poile admitted he's had contact with the agents for Mark Parrish, Glen Murray, Marty Gelinas and Jan Hlavac, obviously looking for help on the wings to replace Alexander Radulov and Steve Sullivan (if he's still injured).  Our choice would be Parrish, as they need a scorer and he's the youngest of the lot but we're kinda surprised that they haven't re-signed Hlavac yet cause this guy played well for them after coming over from Tampa Bay in an deadline deal and finished the season playing on the top line with Arnott and Dumont.

Ottawa Sun is suggesting that the Sens should think about signing Glen Murray as he "still has a quick release".  Good luck with that, the only release that Murray still has is the slow release he seems to have on calling it a career.

Distraction of the Day

What's distracting us today...  interesting post from our friend down under on the "next, next one" either Steven Stamkos or John Tavares... but I've already lost track if Mario or Lindros or Crosby was the "next one".  So what does that make Taylor Hall, the 16 year old from the Windsor Spitfires?... "The Guy After the Next-Next One?"  This needs to stop, its only going to end badly.
