Wednesday Links - Crappy Goaltender Gets Shutout

"TRADE ME NOW, FUCKFACES." - Dilip Vishwanat

Blues win. Jaro gets shutout; TRADE HIM NOW. NHL in Sochi in question again. Honoring Rick Rypien right. Cal Clutterbuck is still a douche, not shockingly. Pizza is meh? Fuck you. And explaining Saturday's goal reversal. Celebrate a win with links!

WE MUST TRADE FOR A GOALIE NOW OUR CURRENT GOALIES SUCK OH MY GOD

BLUES NEWS:

  • Oh. A shutout? You mean people other than Ryan Miller can do that?!?! Yeah, actually. All 23 shots coming the way of Jaroslav Halak were stopped in a 3-0 win over the Devils last night. What say you Ashley, AKA RBR, AKA "HumbleAtrociousR2D2"? (Seriously, you guys . . . J-Mill does this SO much better than I do.) [SLGT]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Scores. HOCKEY TEAMS KEEP GIVING CHICAGO LOSER POINTS. FUCK YOU, HOCKEY TEAMS. [NHL.com 01/28/14]
  • Three games tonight. One in Yankee Stadium. One hopefully NOT INVOLVING ANOTHER FUCKING HOCKEY TEAM GIVING A FUCKING LOSER POINT TO FUCKING CHICAGO. HEAR ME, CANUCKS, YOU SACKS OF SHIT?! [NHL.com 01/29/14]
  • More proof (because after he supposedly told Andy McDonald that he hoped he got another concussion, I guess there wasn't ENOUGH proof yet) that Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck . . . well, MIGHT be an asshole. [Puck Daddy]
  • Is the NHL reevaluating sending players to Sochi? It looks like they may be. Hildy has words on this. [SLGT]
  • Vincent Prospal was never spectacular, but he was . . . something. And now, he's retired from hockey. [Puck Daddy]
  • If you read no other links today, read this one. It's about Notre Dame backup goaltender Joe Rogers, who was born with a defective right hand but didn't let it stop him. [SB Nation / Longform]
  • Yesterday was a sponsored day about mental health issues, which raised a whole lot of money for said cause. This is excellent in and of itself. But perhaps the classiest move by any team was by the Jets, who signed Rick Rypien in their first offseason before he committed suicide. The team wore these sweaters and auctioned them off, with proceeds going toward mental health research. [Twitter / @NHLJets]
  • Puck Daddy's Jen Neale writes about the long-coming celebration that was hockey in Southern California for Saturday's Stadium Series game. [Puck Daddy]

OTHER SHIT:

  • RIP, Pete Seeger. 94 years young. I care not for anyone's opinion of him. I just wanna say that this man was still doing some limited touring just last year. Halfway through his 90's. Goddamnit, that is impressive. [USA Today]
  • Northwestern football does the first thing I've liked from them in the history of ever . . . they're attempting to form a union led by quarterback Kain Colter, and if they succeed, this is fucking huge. (S/T to J-Mill, who repeats my sentiments about Northwestern, by the way) [Deadspin]
  • This asshole from the New York Times believes "Pizza Is Meh". This asshole from the New York Times is . . . well . . . an asshole. Oh wait, I already said that. Twice. Anyway, this is three minutes I'll never get back, and I'm forcing you to waste three minutes on it as well. Sorry. [New York Times / 6th Floor]

VIDEO:

Sure, there may have been some bullshit spewed into this interview, but Islanders PBP guy Howie Rose (who I rather enjoy, actually) was very stern but fair with NHL Senior Vice President Kris King as he explained the overturned goal call from the Blues/Isles game on Saturday. (S/T to CrossCheckRaise):

And if you really wanna laugh . . . in the comments (YES, YOUTUBE COMMENTS, I KNOW, DIE IN A FIRE, ALL OF THEM), you'll find the first and perhaps ONLY instance of anyone thanking Kerry Fraser for anything.

Hey, gang. I know you have things you read. They have links. And other people can see them. Same with videos. Well, send them to me, and YOU get all the credit! (Designated Godfather II, Juan Mallagher, would hate me as a sales partner . . . I suck at it):

Episode 28 of Beyond Checkerdome comes your way later today. A Ryan Miller trade probably doesn't.
