It has been pretty quiet around here lately. I'm taking a good portion of the summer off from this blog, but I will try to post something If any major news comes out like the CHL Import Draft next Wednesday. I still want to try and post my Annual Arm-Chair GM scouting report before the NHL Draft Tomorow (which is not going to happen, this weekend sometimes.)

Slightly Old News
Alex Theriau was not signed by the Dallas Stars so he will be eligible to go back into the draft on Friday.
Edit:Didn't get selected in the draft Alex Theriau is now a free agent. His chances of coming back to the Tigers just went up.
Willie Desjardins was moved to the Stars AHL Affiliate the Texas Stars as thier Head Coach.
Hunter Shinkaruk was selected for the 2012 Russia/Canada Challange. This event replaced the Team Canada Summer Development Camp for the world junoirs.
Darren Helm re-signed with Detroit (4 year 8.5 million dollar deal) I think 90% of the hockey world would consider that a steal.
Their have been a few comments that have been getting stuck in the spam filter, including a pretty newsworthy comment about Parkkonen.
I completely missed this but Patrik Parkkonen has Signed with Porin Assat of the Finnish elite league. He signed a 2 year contract in early June. The Tigers blueline depth is now looking a little inexperienced with Parkkonen going overseas and Mckay heading off to school.
Defensive Depth Chart
Alex Theriau(20??) Busenius(19)
This means the Tigers will be able to draft 2 new euros through the Euro Draft.
