Morning Skate: Thursday, January 10

 An NHLBruins resurrection party taking place on Jan. 17 at the Harp. Sounds like it should be a good little hockey love-in for the diehard Bruins fans out there.

 What will the Rangers do with Wade Redden? What will Redden do with himself if hes back in the NHL? Interesting questions abound.

 

 If you are a glutton for hating the Canucks, heres the Green Men podcast for your perusal.

 

 Jonathan Toews questions the length of the NHL lockout just as players around here have been doing all week. Its definitely a legit point.

 

 Dustin Byfuglien is feeling just fine after the lockout layover and says his conditioning wont be an issue. What the Winnipeg Jets coaching staff thinks might be a different story altogether.

 

 If you havent already please like the Turk: the Movie Facebook page and support the efforts to make a film about Derek Sandersons life. It sounds like its going to be a pretty awesome flick when its said and done, and Ed Burns has already signed on to play Sandersons dad.

 

 Scott Hartnell enjoyed himself during the NHL lockout. Scott Hartnell enjoys himself no matter where he goes.

 

 For something completely different: A Baseball Hall of Fame ballot discussion with Jonah Keri.

Steven Scheu, TE, Vanderbilt
Woodrow Hamilton, DT, Mississippi State
CJ Johnson, LB, Mississippi State
V’Angelo Bentley, CB, Illinois
Jonathan Jones, CB, Auburn
Cre’Von LeBlanc, CB, Florida Atlantic

Foster is arguably the highest profile player the Patriots signed and was filmed celebrating the moment.

Foster has the versatility the Patriots looks for. He played running back over his first three collegiate seasons before shifting to wide receiver. He finished his career at Arizona State with 666 total touches for 4,813 yards and 32 touchdowns.
