* John Tortorella says “so be it” if the Sedin Twins get injured blocking a shot per the orders of the head coach. Wonder if the Canucks fans will be so cavalier if that happened?

* James Reimer sizes up the changes to the goalie pads, and how it will affect NHL netminder this season.
 
* A look at Monday night’s preseason tilt between the Habs and Bruins from the Montreal perspective, with excitement over Daniel Briere and outrage that Canadiens management released former first round pick Louis Leblanc from training camp.
 
* If you missed it at 7:20 a.m. this morning, my hit with Toucher and Rich that touched on a number of subjects from last night’s preseason opener.
 
* Check out good buddy Jimmy Murphy’s hockey blog over at Murphy’s Hockey Law, where he weighs in on the Tim Thomas return to the NHL among other things. Murph is always a must read on the subject of hockey.
 
*For something completely different: What we were all waiting for, Britney Spears to weigh in on the Miley Cyrus MTV Awards performance.
