Blues News

  • Your pre-game festivities for this Saturday's home opener. [Blues]
  • Payne and Halak hope that the goaltending will be improved over last year's inconsistency. [P-D]
  • A Blues season preview from a site I've never heard of that I'm only posting because it has Kevin Shattenkirk's mustache front and center. [Sports Chat Place]
  • "Leanin' on Langenbrunner" would be an awesome '80s sitcom.  [BND]
  • Yeah, shootouts suck, but they need to be practicing. This week, the Blues were out taking attempts in order to improve their losing record in the skills competition last year. [P-D]
  • Purchase bracelets this Saturday at the game to support the newly-established Demitra/Korolev foundation, helping kids from all backgrounds play hockey. [Blues]

NHL/Hockey News

  • Like I tell all the morons of SoCal's finest adult leagues, holding up on a hit isn't that difficult and contact can be avoided. You just have to think. Shanahan is back, but this time, he's here to send up players who make the right decisions in what could potentially be bad situations. [NHL]
  • Hey, Ducks, go to Helsinki. [NHL]
  • Drew Doughty and his fat-ass contract went to Germany with the rest of the LA Kings to take on the Hamburg Freezers, winning 5-3. [NHL]
  • "We have better players than Sean Avery." -John Tortorella; what a badass. [Puck Daddy]
  • Is a struggle about to ensue about the next CBA? Let's hope not, but let's also hope they close those loopholes that New York is currently exercising. Yeah, they're exiling Avery, but along with Redden, they're burying payroll. [ESPN]
  • Stanley Cup Rings. Bling bling holla holla get dolla paper stack [other things you say about expensive jewelry]. [Puck Daddy]
  • Montreal is still crazy. Like, they're fucking insane. [Montreal Gazette]
  • Another upbeat Jets article. This time, the word "upbeat" is in the title. [Tapei Times]
  • Breaking news: Zdeno Chara is big. [USA Today]
  • I linked earlier that Brendan Saad was on the cusp of making the Blackhawks' roster. Now, the 18-year old has been signed, plugging holes caused by injuries and suspensions to his teammates. [Chicago Tribune]
  • Petr Sykora sighting: New Jersey. [ESPN]
  • The Senators Heritage Jersey is amazing and so is the video that incorporates the uniform's designer as part of the promotion. [Icethetics]

Other Stuff

  • Hey, bro, learn about things. [Brotips]
  • 15 animated short films that will brighten your day. [Machoarts]
  • Great moments in vandalism: Five Guys Edition. [Tosh.0]
