Friday links: Hoping Toews pukes at least once in the Cup finals edition

Open thread seemed to go over well, eh? Get used to them. In the summer when nothing happens, I'm going to throw one up.

Blues news

  • Jeff Gordon's piece isn't the most well-written on the Web, but it makes a good point. Drafting players is only part of the puzzle, the Blues have got to develop consistent, talented players. [STLtoday]
  • JR chats. Included is news that will probably crush Mr. Tomorrows Blues: The development camp has been canceled. [STLtoday]
  • Bernie says the Blues must stick with the plan. They really don't have any other option. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
  • Like we've talked about for years, the Blues are searching for the answer in net.[St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

Hockey news

  • College pucks are coming to the Drinkscotch in October. [Belleville News-Democrat]
  • Ilya Kovalchuk and Alexander Frolov have been contracted by the KHL. [TSN]
  • Jarome Iginla isn't going anywhere. Neither is Darryl Sutter. [TSN]
  • The NHL is going outside again, this time twice. Pittsburgh gets its second game (first at home) and Calgary will host one in Canada. The Blues aren't involved. [TSN]
  • Jonathan Toews and Mike Richards won gold medals and are now trying to win the Cup. Greedy bastards. [TSN]

Other links

  • This is bizarre, but I think so of you may enjoy it. [Beans]
  • Part of me wishes I would have had creative answers when I was failing stats. Both times. [theChive]
  • No politics (please), but you have to admit, some of these suggestions for fixing America are funny. I can get behind Ninja Cats and mandatory Truck Nutz. [Newsweek]
  • Maverides finds a site that is just terrible at translating. His example was pretty funny — try it for yourself. [Bad Translator]


I really hope Mike Richards watches this and makes Jonathan Toews puke.

I leave you with some tuneage. Enjoy.
