Details emerge about the latest CBA proposal from the NHL: Its slightly better than the first one, but it still doesnt appear close to a workable document from the players point of view. Sixteen teams would be automatically over the cap if the NHL proposal became a reality.

The Hockey Guys have a profile on Bruins draft pick and Charlestown Townie Matt Grzelcyk. has chosen today as Bruins day on its 30-in-30 feature during the month of August, and has all of the essentials for a preview of whats to come once NHL hockey gets going.

Would Virginia Beach be a possible destination for an NHL hockey club in the future? Theyre certainly looking to draw a pro sports franchise to their neighborhood.

The NHLPA mulls the proposal from the NHL, and FOH (Friend of Haggs) Chris Johnston outlines some of the finer points.

Bruce Garrioch has a great story of journeyman goaltender Fred Braithwaite, who is hoping for one last chance at the NHL as a 39-year-old goaltender. Its pretty refreshing at a time when another 38-year-old goaltender (Tim Thomas) is walking away from the league near the height of his powers.

Mike Cammalleri is ready to rebound this season with the Calgary Flames. Getting out of Montreal was a pretty good start for him.

For something completely different: Joss Whedon will have a new TV show out soon and it will be related to the Avengers movies that hes directing. Good news for a guy like me that lists Buffy the Vampire Slayer as his favorite television show of all-time.
