I have two fond memories of Buffalo.

1. Many Tim Horton's locations.

2. Patrick Kane getting stuck in a firetruck ladder basket.


Blues News:

  • Guess the writer. Actual quote: "Speaking of Peoria, T.J. Hensick, who has had two brief cups of coffee in St. Louis." [Post Dispatch]

  • Halak is on IR for 7 days. Shit. There is too much hockey in the next week for him to be injured. [Post Dispatch]

  • The Blues have their very own article on Puck Daddy! It's not a favorable outlook on the rest of the season though . . . For the record, it's way too early to be making such claims. [Puck Daddy]

  • Trade deadline suggestions? Trade Brewer. Also, find money. [Post Dispatch]

  • Odd start time tonight - 6:30. [Post Dispatch]

  • The enemy: [Die By The Blade]

Hockey News:

  • Wear your favorite hockey jersey to work today. [USA Hockey]

  • Jarkko Ruutu was traded to the Ducks for a sixth round pick [Senators, Ducks]
  • A loophole? In the rules of the NHL? What??? [Puck Daddy]

  • Joe Vitale has had a very difficult and uplifting journey to the NHL. But the most interesting part is the comment section. Cam Janssen to the Pens? A couple commentators think it should be. [PensBurgh]

  • This article has no new news. Gary Bettman is pleased with how the league handled the Pens/Islanders fiasco. But the picture that goes along with the article. Glorious. [THN]

  • The Thrashers may have a chance to stay in Atlanta. [THN]

  • Fuck Detroit. And, ew, an octopus thrown on the ice in Tampa. [Puck Daddy]

  • How the NHL can get more fans: ban fighting. [Stanford Daily]

  • Blindside hits. The "code." Pansification. Crosby's luminous season derailed. It's all here. [ESPN]

Other Stuff:

  • A Jersey Shore drinking fitness game? I've seen it all. It's like a drinking game, only instead of taking shots, you perform exercises. The downside is that you have to WATCH Jersey Shore. [RomanFitness]

  • Interesting graph of the month: Annual Coffee Consumption per capita. Reading "The Girl in the Dragon Tattoo" confirms the findings. [chartsbin]

  • This is my kind of crossword puzzle. [Buttersafe]


Oh noes! James Earl Jones is forced to read Justin Bieber lyrics on The Gayle King Show.  I like how Mr. Jones had never heard of Bieber. I hate that Gayle has never seen "Star Wars."
