The gloves are staying on.

For the first time since Randy Carlyle took over as the head coach two years ago, the Toronto Maple Leafs will not enter the season with a so-called enforcer.

On Monday, the team placed Colton Orr and Frazer McLaren on waivers with the purpose of assigning them to the minors. Instead, the Leafs decided to keep forwards Carter Ashton, Josh Leivo and Brandon Kozun, but also placed Korbinian Holzer on waivers and is still deciding to re-assign William Nylander to either Sweden or the Toronto Marlies.

The team is now down to 25 players — David Booth is injured and Viktor Loov is in the process of joining the Marlies — ahead of Tuesday’s 5 p.m. deadline for submitting a final 23-man roster.

Maybe one of the mods can rename this thread to NHL 2014-2015 Season thread, now that the season has started tonight. Claw used to do this.

Anyone watching any of the games tonight ?
I'm listening to the Leafs / Canadiens game.
The score is 1-1 in the 1st period. Max Pacioretty scored for the Habs & then the Leafs tied it up. The Leafs goal was awarded to Kadri, but the radio announcers insist he never touched the puck.

2-1 Leafs after the 1st period. Bozak scored a power play goal.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have claimed Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Richard Panik off waivers.

The 23-year-old scored three goals and 10 assists in 50 games with the Lignthing in 2013-14.

For the Bell users in Canada, the two FX channels previously unavailable on Bell have appeared as of today, so the NHL games on FX will be available to you.

The channels are in free preview until mid-November and I don't know if there will be a separate cost involved in keeping them.

Yeah yeah - it's a few days late so just deal with it. :tongue:

Anyway - this is an interesting year for Canadian NHL fans as Rogers has taken over the NHL coverage and I have to admit that their schedule looks great especially for fans of an NHL team which is not their local home team. As a Bruins fan living in Vancouver it looks like I will be able to see almost half of the Bruin games this season on various Rogers channels. I upgraded to a new PVR and was seriously thinking about getting Center Ice but now since I can get so many Bruin games for free I'll just find somewhere else to spend that $ 200.

I hate the Rogers coverage so far. What's Ron Maclean's job now?

Me too. Maybe it'll get better when the commentators and analysts stop fellating themselves about how wonderful Rogers is and stop giving off the vibe that their coverage is saving hockey.
Unfortunately the "everything that the Leafs do is front page news!!!" will never go away, only get worse.

The only thing I like about the Roger's coverage thus far, is a ton of games on tons of channels.  I'm going crazy switching between like 6 games.

Watched HNIC pre-game on Sat night and I thought it sucked. Should've had Ron Maclean as the host. P.J. Stock gets His own segment=bad. Elliott Freidman is the best thing about that show. Also, was there a Hot Stove segment at all?

I just found this to make the hunt for which game is on which Rogers channel less confusing. Just put in your Postal Code and then your cable provider and voila:

The Boston Bruins have signed veteran winger Simon Gagne to a one-year deal worth $600,000, the team said Tuesday.

Gagne attended training camp with the Bruins (1-3-0) on a tryout. He improved as camp progressed, so general manager Peter Chiarelli asked him to remain with the team as a non-roster player.

Gagne's presence on and off the ice will add another veteran dynamic, similar to the one former Bruin Mark Recchi provided.

The former Philadelphia Flyers star missed all of last season, unable to catch on with an NHL team. The 34-year-old had five goals and six assists in 27 games in 2012-13.

His addition to the Bruins' lineup should add immediate contributions, especially on the power play. During recent offseasons, Gagne played summer hockey with Bruins forward and fellow Quebec native Patrice Bergeron. The two spoke this summer and Bergeron called Chiarelli, who agreed it would be a good idea to invite Gagne to camp.

The Bruins waived forward Bobby Robins for purpose of assignment to Providence, and also assigned forward Jordan Caron to the AHL club.
