Shrapnel - 9/19/11

It's Monday, and that means that the first preseason matchup against the Jets is only one day away! Expect to hear about the playing rosters for both halves of the split squad game later today.

A bonus from camp yesterday: We had a chance to ask James Wisniewski what he thought about Shane Doan's comments on head shots - and the fact that a hit he put on Shane was specifically singled out by the Coyotes Captain.

"Shane plays the game really hard, and coming from a leader like him, he obviously understands that how things played out wasn't intentional - I don't think it's anybody's fault, it's coming out of the rule changes. You can't impede anyone, so guys are really flying out there on the ice. Hearing from a leader like that that he understands it wasn't on purpose - that means a lot. We settled it - had a little fight - and I hadn't thought about it since."

In Canada, the CBC opened their season of Battle of the Blades - a show which Wade Belak had been scheduled to appear on - with a tribute to the former tough guy.
