Saturday Caterwaul: Panthers pre-Skillz Komp Open Forum

"And just where did you get that killer iPhone skin?"

Florida's Brian Campbell will participate in two skills categories Saturday: Fastest Skater (backwards, vs Kris Letang) and as a passer - to former teammate Marian Hossa - in Accuracy Shooting.


Today's marginally larger-than-normal-importance links:

On the table:

Local buds Harvey and George with Soupy updates and more from Friday evening in Canada's capital...D Ryan Suter making life difficult for Preds GM Poile as the trade deadline approaches...Campbell with an assist tonight, according to someone's console system...Duhatschek sees a rising tide among goaltenders from the States (and not to get ahead of ourselves - no disrespect to Iowa's Clemmer - but Florida prospect Brian Foster is from New Hampshire)...Columbus fans are understandably angry with their club...only a little bit ironically, will the Jackets get the 2013 All-Star Game?...Sportsnet's top 5 skills competition moments from the past 20 years...Some NBA player I've never heard of - and there are legions - feels his team's home base, the 3-year old Prudential Center in Newark, isn't up to his own specs: "I don't like this arena one bit." And why not? "It was made for hockey, not basketball." Tell that to puck fans in Seattle... THN's Campbell makes a case for the Big Three to be in Ottawa this weekend...time to write off the Bolts? Not so fast says Raw Charge...Caruso and Strachan depart AT&T center with dual plus-four efforts for the Rampage Friday; a bunch of terrific performances by SA all around...LHH hosts an Islanders roundtable without a single mention of that Grabner kid...Regardless of your previous feelings about Joffrey Lupul, he's pretty mainstream...Panthers get some attention from the National Post...NHL Network panel talks trade deadline from Media Day via Kukla's Korner.

Tonight:

Road House won't be broadcast on AMC until Sunday, so join us this evening as we mock young men with far superior athletic ability than you or I ever dreamed of utilizing attaining when the NHL Skills Competition (NBC-SN) gets the LBC Live Thread treatment at 6:30.
