Philly's Sinking

Forsberg's out for training camp, but should be back for Oct. 5. Hatcher's out for training camp, and at worst will be back by late October. Kapanen, well, he's out till Mid-November after shoulder surgery. How the mighty have fallen...

Still a hell of a team though. They've filled the void by adding veteran Brian Savage, which I don't see as a good move, as they're rosters were solid, and when they're healthy, they won't have any room for him. Maybe they're not planning on being healthy, who knows? Finally new Power Rankings are up, sorry they took so long. Calgary still sits on top, while the Rangers own the basement. Biggest movers of the week? Atlanta moved up 8, Nashville moved up 6. The biggest losers? Boston, who slipped 6 spots. Why? Raycroft and Boynton are still not re-signed, and don't be surprised at all if one of them is offered an offer sheet. I've heard rumours of teams thinking of making a move for Boynton.

Bondra still isn't official, but I still believe it's done. Kovalchuk is close to re-signing too. Datsyuk will play hard to get, and I don't see him making a decision until around Oct.1. Thats all for now, for all questions, comments, ideas, etc.
