For the hockey news today - tomorrow is the last day of Caps Rookie camp - I didn't score tickets to the Rookie Scrimmage against the Flyers and wouldn't have time to go if I did. From around the blogsphere:
Tarik has two interesting posts: a) Tom Poti is 100% healthy and b) Coach Bodreau's shortlist from the first 3 days of rookie camp.
Corey has a couple interesting notes from yesterday but some really good news that Nicklas Backstrom is on the ice skating this morning and looking pretty good. Hopefully his ankle is fine.
On Frozen Blog has a recap of the recent print and blog news and will live blog tomorrow's scrimmage.
Japer's Rink has a neat set of stats on where Semin and Brooks Laich score from and their willingness and propensity to go to the net.
The Red Skate has a neat piece on insurance and participation in International events by NHL players that is fueled by the AIG crisis - truly a relevant piece that only an attorney in NY and a hockey fan would come up with.
I spent yesterday going down and back to Atlanta to one of the Security Industry's premier conferences and exhibitions - ASIS 2008. Our ICx Technologies, Inc booth looked awesome, we had lots of great traffic and meetings. For my part, it was a productive but fairly long day - 6AM flight down, 8:40 PM flight back, and six meetings about 4 deals/initiatives, along with several impromptu meet and greets with folks from the industry on "the show floor".
As a side note, my trip yesterday made me realize how easy it is to get to the Philips Arena (home of the Atlanta Thrashers) from the airport (Philips Arena is right across the street from the Georgia Dome and Atlanta large convention facility the Georgia World Commerce Center) and with a little advance planning how cost effective flights from Dulles to Atlanta are on Airtran (my round trip ticket was just under $250.00), and MARTA (Atlanta's "Metro) is an easy way to get from the airport to the arena and other downtown locations. A road trip to see the Caps season opener in Atlanta is starting to look tempting.
Can't wait to Rock The Red on October 11th.
LETS GO CAPS!!!!!!!!!!
