Hamilton rookie holds no grudges

NOTEBOOK When Michael Henrich was cut by the Edmonton Oilers, his first reaction upon his arrival in Hamilton could have been: “Oh no, not you again!” After all, the right winger was cut from Canada’s world junior team by Claude Julien, now the first-year coach of the American League’s Bulldogs. But Henrich said he had no hard feelings toward Julien and the coach knows the rookie right winger has potential and should be a fine asset. “Even when we parted company last year, he thanked me for the opportunity,” Julien said. “With the world junior team, you can only bring 22 players. There have been a lot of players cut, like Patrick Roy. Daniel Cleary was cut three times.” The 6-foot-2, 206-pound Henrich was the Oilers’ first round pick (13th overall) in 1998. He’s highly…

GM Dudley satisfied to start season before attempting to fine-tune roster

There was a time in training camp when everyone expected the Tampa Bay Lightning would swing a deal. Whether it was for a scoring forward or a veteran defenseman. it seemed certain Tampa would make a trade or take a shot at a free agent. But as camp came to a close, GM Rick Dudley said he was “not in active pursuit” of new blood and was happy opening the season with the current roster.
