Junior's 'Reading And Viewing List' for September 11 through September 20, 2010 contains title linked places worth visting from last month. If you missed these posted items, or just want to revist and review them, I think you'll find them worth the cyber trip.

A Survey of Local Caps’ Media: Evaluating the Offseason
By pucksandbooks at On Frozen Blog

In the leadup to this fall’s training camp I reached out to local media long devoted to covering the Caps and asked them to respond to a single line of inquiry: relative to where they imagined the Caps to be as claimants for legitimate Stanley Cup contention in the immediate aftermath of last April’s seven-game series loss to Montreal, where were the Caps at the dawn of training camp this fall? Improved? Regressing? More or less the status quo? I wanted from them a verdict on the Capitals’ offseason, with en eye toward the big prize. I received from my media colleagues what I thought I would: extremely thoughtful verdicts...

That is a pretty strong word, isn’t it?

2010-2011 Previews: Goaltenders -- Michal Neuvirth
By The Peerless at The Peerless Prognosticator

Imagine yourself a young goaltender. A second round draft pick in 2006 (fourth goalie selected). The next year, you record a 26-8-4 record in Canadian juniors (2.32, .932, four shutouts), followed up by a 14-4 post-season record (2.44, .932) that carries your team to the Memorial Cup semi-finals. You have cemented yourself as a prospect to watch, except the next year you end up playing for three different teams in Canadian juniors (Plymouth, Windsor, Oshawa). No matter – you still put up a combined 17-7-8 record and go 7-2, 2.49, .928 in the post-season with Oshawa. Not much more to prove here...
