  1. The city hopes to receive $30 million in federal aid toward construction of a walkway that would link Newark Penn Station and the arena, so that fans would never have to set foot on city streets. That might allay fears of critics of the proposal that suburban fans would be too concerned about their safety to attend games.

    This part is key. I think they had it in some of the pictures they had shown a while back. It would be nice for me to just hop the train in Middletown, get off at Penn, and walk to the Arena. No tolls, no gas, no parking, just the train and game ticket. Also perfect for concerts. B)

  2. You're right on Roenick, I'm pretty sure I heard it during some broadcast. I'm probably mixed up and its some other good player that went undrafted, if I figure out who I'm mixing Roenick up with I'll let you know.

    -Scott

    His teammate Belfour went undrafted I believe. Anyways, the point was, that since he was 28 w/ some expericence, I don't think you can compare it to teams passing someone over in an Entry Draft, who are unexperienced.

  3. Jeremy Roenick went through the entire entry draft without any team drafting him. Sometimes teams are just wrong or won't take a gamble on some guys.

    -Scott

    He went through the entry draft twice? I thought he was drafted in the first round by the 'Hawks. Anyways, it's still different w/ the entry draft than this. Lots of unknowns there. This guy is 28 and has played in the NHL, teams should know more.

  4. When someones picked off waivers doesn't the team lowest in the standings at the time get first chance? If so, someone on another board made a good point. If he was deemed as being so good, wouldn't some lesser team have grabbed him first?

  5. Robinson is under contract for 2 or 3 more years.

    Lou won't let him go/go for nothing.

    I think he would. He had let him talk to other teams (even the Rangers) in the past, why not now?

    Capitals Claim Right Wing Andreas Salomonsson

    Matt Pettinger Reassigned to Portland

    October 15,2002 - The Washington Capitals today claimed right wing Andreas Salomonsson off waivers from New Jersey, announced vice president and general manager George McPhee.

    To make room for Salomonsson in their 23-player lineup, the Capitals reassigned 22-year-old left wing Matt Pettinger to Portland of the American Hockey League, Washington’s top minor-league affiliate.

    Salomonsson, 28, began his North American career last season after New Jersey drafted the 6’ 1”, 200-pound, Ornskoldsvik, Sweden native in the eighth round, 163rd overall, in the 2001 Entry Draft. Salomonsson played 39 games with New Jersey in 2001-02 and recorded four goals, five assists (9 points) and 22 penalty minutes. In 19 games with Albany of the American Hockey League last year, Salomonsson had three goals, 10 assists (13 points) and six penalty minutes.

    Prior to coming to North America, Salomonsson played 11 seasons in the Swedish league and recorded 79 goals, 86 assists (165 points) and 350 penalty mintues in 381 regular-season games. He played 10 seasons with Modo before joining Djurgardens IF for their 2001 Swedish Hockey Championship run.

    Salomonsson will join the Capitals’ lineup Thursday at Carolina as Washington plays its second of eight consecutive road games before returning to MCI Center, Oct. 30 to face Boston. For information on Capitals tickets, please visit the team’s official website, www.washingtoncaps.com, or call 202.432.SEAT.

  7. For number 3, what was the Wings' record? I thought the Habs held this record from their 76-77 season when they went 60-8-12?

    EDIT: Ah nevermind, I figured it out :P
