Latest on the Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Vancouver Canucks, Ottawa Senators and Winnipeg Jets.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Goaltending is the Flames’ weakness entering training camp. Neither Ramo or Jonas Hiller were capable of making the starter’s job their own last season. Perhaps promising Joni Ortio makes the case for the role? If the Flames hope for a deep playoff run in 2016, they need Ramo or Hiller to step up this season.
SPORTSNET: Edmonton Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens claims he’s not upset by the club acquiring Cam Talbot from the New York Rangers.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: If Scrivens hopes to remain the Oilers starter, he’ll have to out-play the promising Talbot. He did a superb job last season filling in for the sidelined Henrik Lundqvist.
TSN.CA: Goaltending and top-line production are among the Vancouver Canucks’ notable storylines as they enter training camp.
OTTAWA CITIZEN: Mark Stone, Curtis Lazar and J.G. Pageau attended the NHL/NHLPA rookie orientation program in Washington.
WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: The Jets are banking on promising youngsters like Nikolaj Ehlers, Nik Petan, Joel Armia and Andrew Copp to fill some of the vacant spots in their roster for the upcoming season.
