B.Campbell out a month … Canucks clear some cap room … Cammalleri under review

  • TSN: The Chicago Blackhawks will be without defenseman Brian Campbell for at least the first month of the season with a sprained knee.
  • Jim Jamieson of the Vancouver Province: Darcy Hordichuk and Shane O’Brien have been placed on waivers, and will be sent to the AHL if they clear. O”Brien’s salary is $1.6 million this year, Hordichuk’s cap hit is $750,000.
  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: Brooks rants about how the Islanders are circumventing the cap with using Yashin and Witt’s buyout to reach the salary floor, and how the CBA ‘allows’ teams to take advantage of these types of ‘loopholes’.
  • Josh Cooper the Tennessean: Jonas Anders­son and Ser­gei Kostitsyn are battling for the ‘depth’ position on the Nashville Predators, 26 players remain with the club. “For the most part, we are still loo­king at Kos­titsyn, we are still loo­king at Anders­son, we are still loo­king at all those guys,” Trotz said.

    Shane Obrien could play for many teams.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if someone picks him off waivers. But with the $1.6 million salary, it also wouldn’t be surprising if he cleared.
