Morning Links: HSBC Arena is on Ice

It's true!  The ice is in at HSBC Arena and we just days away from the official start of training camp.  On Saturday the entire team will be at the Arena getting ready for the 2009-2010 season.  We are growing closer to my favorite time of the sporting year...October.  Hockey is just starting, baseball is in the playoffs and football is in the second quarter of the season.  Is there a better time of year than October?
