So heading into Friday's game in Atlanta, where in tarnation are we? With left wing Cory Stillman off to Raleigh, right wing Steve Bernier clearing waivers, and forwards Michal Repik & Bill Thomas jockeying for injured Jack Skille's spot, the Panthers will have a slightly modified look before the puck drops against the Thrashers. Not to mention Stiller's "A" has yet to be reassigned; look for it to appear on the chest of Bryan Allen, me guesses.
Speaking of the Blue Birds, they made a few waves of their own on Thursday by sending former Blackhawks defenseman Brent Sopel and forward Nigel Dawes to Montreal for prospect Ben Maxwell and a fourth-round pick in '11. Oh, and GM Rick Dudley was (rightfully) re-upped for another four years.
And it's only Friday.
