Canes, O'Neill Part Ways
|Index | Archive|
O'Neill played in the team's Red/White scrimmage and scored a goal for the home crowd, but went scoreless after playing in three of the team's for exhibition games thus far. He was likely passed in the pecking order by fellow veteran tryout Dan LaCouture, who remains in camp after playing in all four exhibition games and the Red/White scrimmage, where he earned first-star honors with two goals and an assist.
Best of luck to O'Neill. I'm not sure what his intentions are going forward from now, but here's hoping he catches an NHL deal somewhere this season.
This morning's practice is about to start, but I'll have reactions and more afterwards. Good news - Rod Brind'Amour, Tim Gleason and Anton Babchuk skated together prior to practice. They weren't going full speed or taking contact, but none of them looked particularly disabled.
Update: Better news - gleason and Babchuk came out for the full practice, as did Matt Cullen and Ray Whitney
