Silver Nuggets: Silfverberg and Caporusso sign; Mock draft for 21st pick

The Binghamton Senators will return to action on Wednesday night when they host Game 3 of the Calder Cup Finals. That is also Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals, a full five days after the Boston Bruins clinched their series. Personally, I think Game One should have been tonight as the Bruins should have had to "suffer" for not winning their series earlier than seven games. Also, I got to feel bad for Vancouver fans, 5:00 local start times! Though, if we were playing Vancouver in the final, I would feel differently.
