I haven't got time for your time-wasting. But I have got time to assemble a whole bunch of links, if you're bored at work today.

Ottawa Senators links:

  • Bruce Garrioch looked at the Sens' crowded blue line, and realized that it won't be easy for the Sens to trade Filip Kuba or Sergei Gonchar without taking money back in return due to the salary cap floor. He also said that Carkner's the only toughness on the back-end; apparently "Erik Karlsson, Chris Phillips, Kuba [sic] Gonchar, [David] Rundblad and [Brian] Lee all play the same game." Can't wait to see Phillips score 50 points and Rundblad playing shutdown defence. (Ottawa Sun)
  • James O'Brien's take on all the defencemen entering camp in Ottawa. (ProHockeyTalk)
  • And for any French readers that might be out there, Vincent Destouches on the Garrioch report that the Sens have been shopping Gonchar. (CKAC)
  • Not sure how I missed this a week ago, but the first of the preview predictions is out and--surprise, surprise!--the Sens are at the bottom of the Northeast Division. (Fantasy Hockey Scouts)
  • The newest in a long line of player profiles is Wacey Hamilton, an undrafted player the Sens' signed out of junior last year and who should make his pro debut this year. (Eye on the Sens)
  • Former Sens coach Cory Clouston on wanting to return to the NHL soon, and a little bit on Alex Kovalev. (Citizen)
  • Cool-looking Senators soccer sweater. I think I'd probably buy one, if they sold 'em. (Sens Town)
  • Crozier looks at who might play with Jason Spezza on the Sens' top line. (Senshot)

General links:

  • Remarkably, Stephen Weiss is within striking distance of taking over the lead in most of the Florida Panthers' statistical categories for forwards. This surprised me, for some reason. (Litter Box Cats)
  • A handy instructional on how an NHL player gets bought out. (Down Goes Brown)
  • No, seriously: Sleektoons are the best. (Battle of California)
  • Marian Gaborik might bounce back this season. He also might not. (Blueshirt Banter)
  • Crazy news: Sidney Crosby might not be healthy when the season starts. Some folks (cough*Adnan*cough) don't like him, but it'd be a shame if he misses significant time again this season. (CBSSports)
  • A look at which of Dustin Byfuglien and Tobias Enstrom, if not both, will top 50 points for the Winnipeg Jets this season. (Arctic Ice Hockey)
