It's the first Saturday of college football, which means Vegas pretty much becomes Wall Street from now until February. In the spirit of this, we took a look at the Vegas odds on the upcoming NHL season's Stanley Cup winners.

Bizarre read over at NHL.com:
"I went to an Eagles game last week and I connected with some fans," he said. "They said we're glad to have you on our side. Hopefully I can still build something like I had in Pittsburgh because it was pretty special. When the fans like you, you know you're doing something right."
How do you connect with fans? Clearly Max Talbot has it all figured out. Idiot.Add a comment
Links that hope the Pens have a moment of silence all lined up for Kenny.
Cool vids from Penguins.com on James Neal and Kris Letang training for the season.
Neal has been training at the Gary Roberts High Performance Center this summer.
“He’s just a guy who knows the game so well,” Neal said of Roberts, who also trained teammate Jordan Staal this summer. “He knows what the everyday regimen of an NHL player is and he knows what it takes in the summers and during the year. It’s great. He gives us the rest we need, then he pushes us at the pace we need to be pushed at to give us the ability to be strong throughout the whole season.”

From reader Pittsburghler:
My father, being the hoarder that he is, bid on a bunch of crap from The Igloo during one of the auctions. Among his winning bids were some office chairs from the Penguins boardroom, some player lockboxes and a file cabinet from Ray Shero's office. However, the lockboxes and file cabinet were locked, with no keys provided, so we had to hire a locksmith to open them and cut new locks.
As we opened the top drawer to King Shero's file cabinet, my face almost melted off.
The inventory is as follows:
- 3 White legal pads
- 1 Yellow legal pad
- 2009 Official Guide and Record Book
- 2010 Official Guide and Record Book
- 2009 Official Rules x2
- 5 packs of eclipse wintergreen gum
- 1 PowerBar
- 2 Bottles of Purell Hand Sanitizer
- 1 Box of highligters
- 1 Universal Remote
- 1 DirecTV Remote
- 1 Blue pen
- A bunch of Penguin logo notecards
- A stack of Game Observation sheets with the retro 90's Penguin logo.
