Soundin' Off -- the lifeboat

Thursday, October 26, 2006


First blush? A trade that will help both teams. Both players seem excited.

Boguniecki had arrived in West Haven by Wednesday evening and plans to be at practice in the morning. He's hoping to work his way back to the NHL, and he didn't feel like that was going to happen in Syracuse, not to mention being far from home. He asked for his release to try Europe -- he said they'd talked about that in the summer, when he signed -- and they asked him if he'd consider a trade. So he'll give it a try in Bridgeport; toss in having the family around, and it has every chance of being a good fit.

Caldwell was on the verge of coming back here into an uncertain spot, quite possibly the seventh spot. Maybe a change of scenery does him good.

And Caldwell... Caldwell's a character, first degree. He makes you laugh. He and Koalska took the weekly "Offsides with" (or "One Dumb Question," as I used to call it, leading Caldwell to ask every day, "Any dumb questions for me?") to another level.

Speaking of the weekly... well, more tomorrow, when there's stuff to link to.

Meanwhile, Rochester keeps the Sabres organization perfect with two late goals. Only 32 saves tonight, though. Disappointing.


  • I knew Bogie would wear 33! How many players have worn it?
