Here's the first entry.

Seems like a pretty cool thing that they'll be doing for the duration of the trip.

I wanna know what was going on behind the press during the crosby video, it sounded like shenanigans.

I was reading that the pens had a rest stop at the Shannon Airport of Ireland.
Too bad they did not have time to explore Ireland. Or shop there.

I think the trip will do them well, back here everybody is giving reasons why they can't get close again.
Molinari has an article listing all the teams and their record after being runner up in the sc final.
Starkey has one about the "unsettling vibe" this year. Trip will clear their short-term memories and
hopefully allow them to focus for the new year.

Sweet, when I saw a youtube video, I prayed that it was that.

This blog is really cool..

From the looks of the videos Sid looks tired, but didn't admit it too much. Fleury looked like he was about to fall over. Max looked excited, said he didn't think anyone was too tired and they had a fun practice.

Apparently they have to stay up until the night so they can adjust to the Sweden timezone. Good luck with that Flower. :)

You have to keep in mind that max was on cocaine, he wouldn't be tired.

The most recent update has Fedotenko on Crosby's line. Sykora has a sore throat and missed practice. Pesonen took Sykora's spot on Malkin's line.

That's good news for Peso, as it seems that management is confident in his game enough to put him in that spot, even though it's only practice.

What I also thought was interesting was that management is using this chance to do more in depth scouting of European players, which is one of the benefits of the trip that I hadn't thought about before.

I think they are trying to get Geno to do an interview, they keep saying "c'mon Geno, you can do it" over and over.
