Here are the morning papers for Sunday the 10th of August:
- In his Sunday morning Slap Shots column, Larry Brooks has some inside information on the whole Predators ownership controversy.
- Kevyn Adams still has not been signed by a NHL team, but that doesn’t mean he wants to hang up his skates, writes Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News. (Writer’s note: Great article that is definitely worth the read.)
- When young players curse at Blue Jackets strength coach Barry Brennan, it is actually a good thing, writes Tom Reed.
- Fans are not the only ones excited about the outdoor game at Wrigley Field, some of the Cubs players are as well.
- As Katie Strang of Newsday tells us, Doug Weight is looking forward to proving he still has his offensive touch.
- The Islanders have narrowed their coaching list down to three names, and those are: Paul Maurice, Bob Hartley or Scott Gordon, writes Greg Logan of Newsday.
- Scott Bradley has been promoted to director of player personnel for the Bruins and, as Fluto Shinzawa explains, that requires a knowledge of almost every significant player in the world.
- The Flames have signed forward Cam Cunning to a contract.
- The Wild hopes it can sign Marian Gaborik to a contract extension prior to this season, writes John Shipley of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
