"He's been impressive," said John Hynes, who is coach of the Penguins ' minor league team in Wilkes-Barre and who is running their bench in this tournament. Sundqvist's size -- he is 6 feet 3, 209 pounds -- is an obvious asset; his wingspan is especially valuable when killing penalties and playing in his defensive zone.
The Senators' opened the rookie tournament in front of a sparse gathering on a perfect afternoon for a snooze at the Budweiser Gardens with a disappointing 4-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Pittsburgh's Jean-Sebastien Dea beat Ottawa goalie Chris Driedger on the power play with 18 seconds left in the third after the Senators blew a two-goal third period lead.

In summary, for seven best years of his career, Fleury has been backed-up by a goalie of some note for just one season, otherwise it's been a career backup who played his way out of the league and a trio of AHL-calibre goalies. With the exception of Vokoun, it's a group that any bona fide NHL No.
How will Steve Downie fit in with the Pens? Fleury adamant he wants to stay. Brodeur adamant he wants to play.
Rule changes are fun. They make the game different each year, so you can tell which fans have really been around for a while .
