Friday Links: Lockout Eve edition

You know the scene in Armageddon where John McClane and the bank manager from Dark Knight are trying to diffuse the nuclear bomb before Houston blows them up? I feel similar to Mr. Pink over there in the corner constantly repeating "Do a good job. Do a good job. Do a good job. Do a good job."

Somehow I doubt the NHLPA and the NHL will diffuse the CBA bomb before a lockout hits, though.

Game Time stuff below the links:

Since the links are at this hour, make sure you note the stories below:

Hockey stuff:

  • In 11th hour old CBA deals, Kari Lehtonen signs for $5.9mil AAV for 5 years. At first glance, it looks to be a little too much, but then I remembered the whole rollback thing the owners are pushing for. [Defending Big D]
  • Also getting paid is John Carlson. 6 years and $23.8 million. [Japers' Rink]
  • Here's how to explain the lockout to your idiot friends that don't watch hockey. [Puck Daddy]
  • Doanfest 2012 will be held in either Phoenix or Vancouver. [Puck Daddy]
  • Carlo is a Wing. I'm sure he'll no longer need the bubble wrap. [TSN]

Other Stuff:

  • Google has incorporated Kevin Bacon into its system. And why wouldn't they? [Guardian UK]

We'll all be singing this one soon.
