We recently took a look at the Jets' depth chart, only to have the team add some bodies. Player previews will continue throughout the month, but the biggest question is always ice time and linemates. Inside we'll look at a likely lineup for opening night and look back to years past for comparison.

The Leafs are over the cap, the Oilers hire stats guy Tyler Dellow, Alabama hates Vancouver, who makes the Flames and more in this week's Roundup.

There once was a time when Eric Tangradi was pegged to be an up-and-coming power forward in the NHL who could one day score a ton of goals. There’s a reason a 2nd round pick was used on the player.
Tangradi managed to find the scoreboard quite a bit in the OHL with the Belleville Bulls, and after being dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins along with Chris Kunitz from the Anaheim Ducks for Ryan Whitney (wow, nice deal there Anaheim!) Tangradi scored decent numbers with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in the AHL.

It’s obvious now that Wheeler is a star player in the NHL, and he has proven that he can play tough minutes and against the leagues best defensive pairings. A switch to the second line allowed Wheeler to play against weaker competition and he excelled after a slow start.
