Sunday Morning Hockey Talk

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

- Towering defenseman Hal Gill, who debuted in Bruins training camp in September 1997, had the final year of his deal bought out by Nashville in June, and still hopes to play. According to agent Peter Fish, the 38-year-old Gill will be in someone’s NHL camp next month — be it under contract or by invitation only. The Bruins aren’t likely in need of help back there, but it would not be a total surprise for GM Peter Chiarelli to offer Gill the opportunity to tune up in Wilmington while other NHL clubs scrutinize rosters. Overall, an outstanding career for Gill, who was the 207th pick out of the 1993 draft, and went on to play 1,212 games (playoffs included), with his name on the Stanley Cup with the 2008-09 Penguins.

- Someone, perhaps the Blue Jackets, will pick up Finnish forward Toni Rajala, the ex-Edmonton prospect whom the Oilers finally waived on Friday. He is small (5-10, 165), but he produced at nearly a point-per-game pace (46 games, 17-28—45) last season in Oklahoma City.
