07:20 AM ET 09.10 | First, the good news: Goalie Pekka Rinne was able to drop to his knees in making saves during an informal skate on Monday. It was the most important development of the Predators' pre-training camp practices. Rinne had hip surgery May 9 but was cleared last Thursday "to do a little bit more," according to coach Barry Trotz. "This last week was the first time I was taking shots, and on my knees, moving laterally and stuff like that," Rinne said. ... The Predators begin training camp on Wednesday with team meetings and testing. They take to the ice at Centennial Sportsplex on Thursday. As for when he wants to see game action, Rinne indicated there's no timetable. "Up to my hip," he said. Nashville's first exhibition game is Sept. 16 at Florida. The regular season opener is Oct. 3 at St. Louis.

Naaah.............these hockey threads are always intellectually based, often written in Latin, and stay clear of juvenile humour (note the "u" there) and avoid John Cleese silliness. Could easily have originated at Oxford. Quod erat demonstrandum.

Chi-town has Scotty - *algary has S*otty. Face it though - he can't do worse than the previous grump(s). And they can always send him chasing monsters down - and out.
