BLUES NEWS:

  • Think the Blues did bad with goalie contracts? Well, a lot of other teams have done worse, as CanesAndBluesFan points out. [SLGT]
  • Episode 44 of Beyond Checkerdome focuses a lot on the greatest 44 ever to wear the Note. [SLGT]
  • The Blackhawks eulogy is out, and it's written by Brad and Hildy. And it is . . . pretty damn good, considering what little they had to work with. Blackhawks fans either hated it or feigned boredom with it. Because, well, no fucking shit. Something about psychology. [Puck Daddy]
  • Former Blues defenseman Jeff Brown won GM of the Year in the USHL. (S/T to Tomorrow's Blues) [USHL]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • The Kings won in OT. Shockingly, it was Justin Williams who scored the game-winner. Game Two is Saturday at Staples Center. [Jewels from the Crown]
  • The Rangers did not win. But it's not like they played like ass or anything. [Blueshirt Banter]
  • Ryan Lambert, as usual, takes on a bunch of shit in his weekly Power Rankings. [Puck Daddy]
  • Check out this collection of 100 Sports Illustrated pics from Stanley Cup Finals past. (S/T to CrossCheckRaise) [Sports Illustrated]
  • The Quebec Capitales and the St. Paul Saints, two minor league baseball teams, will play wearing jerseys inspired by the Quebec Nordiques and Minnesota North Stars. Fuckin' sweet, mang. [Puck Daddy]
  • NHL logos redone from Simpsons characters. Makes sense that Marge is involved with the Blues logo. (S/T to doubleduck) [Next Impulse Sports]
  • Is the NHL inching closer to a World Cup announcement, with the (obvious) blessing of the NHLPA? [Puck Daddy]
  • Stan Bowman is putting re-signing Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews at his "highest priority" this offseason. Gee, I wonder why. Is it because they're good? (In other words: NO SHIT.) [CSN Chicago]
  • The Calder Cup will be contested between the farm clubs of two Conference III teams . . . the Texas Stars (Stars, obviously) and the St. John's IceCaps (Jets). As I'm about to marry a quarter-Newf, I will be rooting for St. John's. Go IceCaps! [AHL]

OTHER SHIT:

  • Some quasi Weekend at Bernie's shit out of Detroit. (S/T to UIWWildThing) [My Fox Detroit]
  • "Y'know how fast you were going?" "Yeah, and you're not a real cop, asshole." [Y! / AP]
  • One of baseball's most popular figures and in some regards baseball's "Everyman", Don Zimmer, passed at the age of 83 yesterday. RIP, Zim. [Deadspin]
