-- FOH (Friend of Haggs) Gary Lawless says that the new Winnipeg Jets look a lot like the old Winnipeg Jets, an unimpressive level of status quo for a hockey team without much chance of making the playoffs.

-- Puck Daddy has Lou Lamoriello unfazed about the 0-13 shootout record posted by his New Jersey Devils last season.

-- Top NHL tweets from the last month, with plenty of jokes, and a Tyler Seguin selfie that takes the cake.

-- Allan Muir reels off a list of unsigned unrestricted free agents who might not be able to find an NHL job this coming season, and may be headed for early retirement.

-- Toronto Maple Leafs legend Johnny Bower makes his annual trip to Providence to visit his former Reds teammates.
