    Advice: "It's a really important season for me, and I'm looking forward to it," said Enroth, who spent the last four seasons backing up Ryan Miller. "I see myself more as a potential starter. When Ryan was here it wasn't really the same thing. You knew he was going to be the guy, and obviously for good reason. It's a little bit different story this time." Enroth will compete for playing time with Michal Neuvirth this campaign and training camp should determine who gets the nod on opening night. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: There's no details as to the nature of Staal's apparent injury. The fact that he was held out of an early preseason game isn't alarming, but we'll err on the side of caution by listing him as day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Heatley thinks Ducks are great opportunity
    Dany Heatley thinks playing for the Ducks provides him with a good opportunity for him to show that he can still contribute offensively.

    Advice: Heatley might end up playing alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, which is obviously an enviable assignment. "I score goals," Heatley said. "I've always been offensive and I think I can contribute offensively on this team. We'll see what happens. I never like to put numbers on a season but I feel good about it and I'm excited to get started." We don't expect big things from Heatley after he scored 12 goals and 28 points in 76 games in 2013-14. Rotoworld.com

"We've got a plan for him and we don't want to [rush him]," said Lightning head coach Jon Cooper. "We want to make sure that when we are getting down to the nuts and bolts of our team that he is going to be able to play. He's able to play now, we just want to see other guys. We know what he can do." It sounds like Tampa Bay is just being cautious with their superstar. Rotoworld.com

  • Boone Jenner will get an early look at center
    Boone Jenner will move to center for the Blue Jackets, at least initially.

    Advice: With Ryan Johansen (unsigned) not with the team, the Blue Jackets have decided to shift Jenner to his natural position for Columbus' first preseason game. "If Johansen's here, we may have (Jenner) on the wing but we'd still be trying him at center," coach Todd Richards said. "You take a player like that, a fierce competitor. ... I haven't seen him take a draw yet, but I bet he takes a draw like he plays a game. You better be ready." In his rookie season, Jenner had 16 goals and 29 points during 72 regular-season games, with five points in six playoff contests. The 21-year-old has a very bright future. Rotoworld.com

  • Richards was 'a little bit' worried of buyout
    Mike Richards was "a little bit" worried the Kings would buy out his contract this offseason.

    Advice: Richards had 41 points last season, and six more seasons left on a deal that carries a $5.75 million cap hit. "A little bit," Richards said. "I like it here, my family likes it here, my girlfriend likes it here, and I want to be here. Obviously, on the ice speaks for itself with the team that we have. You know, just everything about it, I wanted to be here. Whether I thought [a buyout] would happen or not, I don't know if I ever did; but there's always that possibility that makes you nervous." It wouldn't be a shock to see Richards return to the 20-goal mark and reach at least 50 points next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Tanguay is sleeper candidate this season
    Alex Tanguay looks healthy and poised to get his career back on track in 2014-15.

    Advice: He certainly made a good first impression in scrimmages on Friday moving without any difficulties and showing no ill effects from hip and knee injuries that sidelined him last season for all but 16 games. "Last year I was a passenger, watching from the sideline. I was almost a fan. But this year I want to be a part of it, and I'm hoping to contribute quite a bit." Tanguay has a career points-per-game rate of approximately .8. That would translate to a 60-point season. If he stays healthy, we don't see any reason why he can't reach that plateau alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:05 am
  • Eric Staal cneters Lindholm and Skinner
    Eric Staal started training camp at center between Jeff Skinner and Elias Lindholm.

    Advice: While coach Bill Peters said that nothing should be read into the line combinations in the early going, that is quite a first line with Skinner being the Hurricanes top sniper and Lindholm the Canes top pick, fifth overall in 2014. If this stays the same, look for Alexander Semin to play on the second unit with Eric's brother Jordan Staal. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:59 am
  • Teravainen thinks he's ready to play in NHL
    Teuvo Teravainen feels ready to play in the NHL.

    Advice: Whether or not Teravainen is at that level might not be the determining factor though. Barring an injury, there's no top-six forward spot open for him, so the Blackhawks might send him to AHL Rockford where he'll get significantly more minutes. "I have to earn my spot," Teravainen said. "I have a chance to make it. I just have to work hard." Rotoworld.com

  • Reto Berra worked in the summer with Allaire
    Coach Patrick Roy said that Reto Berra went through the same off-season training with goalie coach Francois Allaire that Semyon Varlamov did prior to the 2013-14 season.

    Advice: "It worked really well for Varly last year, and we hope it has the same affect on (Berra)," Roy said. The Avalanche need Berra to be better than he was during his first NHL season if he's going to play 15-25 games as Varlamov's backup. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Richards is happy with offseason work
    It sounds like Los Angeles Kings forward Mike Richards worked hard during the offseason, possibly in part to silence those who believe he should have been bought out.

    Advice: "Obviously winning cures all, and you're happy about winning, but I don't picture myself as a fourth-line player," Richards told ESPN. The once-proud two-way forward is at least worth monitoring in leagues if he does find his old form once again, but for now take a wait-and-see approach. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:09 am
  • Tanguay bounce back candidate
    If you are looking for a sleeper bounce-back candidate look no further than Alex Tanguay.

    Advice: He was hampered by a hip injury last season but is apparently healthy now and ticketed to play on a line with Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly. We would not be surprised if Tanguay registered 60 points this season. Given where he sits on many hockey pool lists based on last season's stats, that would make him a tremendous bargain.
