Roommates - Seth Jones And Ryan Suter

from Brian Stubits of Eye On Hockey at CBS Sports,

This week the focus at USA Hockey's Olympic Orientation Camp is only on USA Hockey and the Olympics early next year in Sochi, Russia. But let's not forget that these guys are mostly all in the NHL and have their own teams and situation from those teams to deal with.

Which makes things like this so interesting ... and potentially awkward. Seth Jones, the No. 4 overall draft pick this summer by the Nashville Predators, has himself a roomate here outside Washington like everybody else. His roomate? Former Predators star defenseman Ryan Suter, a man Jones is more or less going to be tasked with replacing.

"He played in Nashville for quite a long time and was obviously a pretty good defenseman there," Jones said Monday of his temporary roomate. "I like to ask him questions. I haven't really had a chance yet because we just got here yesterday but it's nice getting to know him and ask him quesitons about Nashville."

Now Trotz has an excuse to knock on the door...

From the article:

Consider that Predators coach Barry Trotz was remarking last week how he wants to beat Minnesota because of Ryan Suter being with the Wild and it’s a nice little subplot this week in Arlington.

Man, that better turn into one of the meanest rivalries since the Wings and the Dives.
