Tuesday Links - I Never Use Bleacher Report Links

Gallery of Blues camp photos. Can Tim Thomas bring (ANY) fans to Sunrise? Suspensions from Glendale. Hungarian bus stop is awesome. Jeff Skinner might be stupid. Never argue about Kant in Russia. And local slang. Fuck the Bleacher Report.

Not gonna see THIS guy for the first ten games.

Lots of shit to talk about, so let's get right down to it.


  • A collection of photos from the first week and weekend of Blues camp. [SLGT]


  • Tim Thomas got a tryout offer from the Florida Panthers. [SB Nation]
  • Speaking of the Panthers, Puck Daddy flagged down Panthers president Michael Yormark to see how he could bullshit his way around why there were, like, five fans at their game with the Predators (PERDS!) yesterday afternoon. [Puck Daddy]
  • So that hit on Coyotes defenseman Rostislav Klesla by Kings forward Jordan Nolan that led to a fight (more on that later)? Despite leaving his feet and hitting another guy in the head, the league says the head wasn't the primary point of contact and Nolan won't be suspended. Guaran-damn-tee, though, that Klesla has no fucking clue where he is still, though. [Puck Daddy]
  • Meanwhile, for leaving the bench and fighting Nolan later in that contest, Paul Bissonnette will have to sit out the first 10 games of the regular season because, well, them's the rules and such. Chances are he was gonna get scratched for about eight of those games anyway, so this basically deters nothing. Nice work, NHL. #4L2 []
  • This bus stop in Hungary is, like, the fucking greatest. [Reddit Hockey]
  • Jeff Skinner is growing the sport one fan at a time, apparently. Well, someone forgot to tell him about hockey's Taylor Swift Curse. Go look it up. It's real. (Actually, it kinda might not be.) [Twitter / @JeffSkinner]
  • The Devils gave Damien Brunner, formerly of the Red Wings and the Swiss league, a tryout offer. [Fire N Ice]
  • Ryan Lambert points out in his weekly "What We Learned" piece that many executives and players in the NHL are delusional about their chances heading into the season. Well hey, no shit. [Puck Daddy]
  • Remember Jeff Halpern? Probably not. Well, whatever, he'll be playing in Finland this year. [Pro Hockey Talk]


  • What happens when you have an argument over Immanuel M. Kant at a grocery store in Russia? You get shot. In an ironic twist, in Soviet Russia, Kant shoots you. [Y! / Reuters]
  • Nebraska head football coach Bo Pelini apparently was pissed at some fairweather Cornhusker fans a couple years ago and didn't realize he was being recorded, and now that they just fucked up, this is making the rounds. If Nebraska fires him because of this, I hope they enjoy the mediocrity and shitty ass football that will ensue because NOT ONE DAMN COACH WORTH HIS SALT will take that job. [SB Nation]
  • Apparently, a foul tip caused Yadier Molina's mask to bust a screw loose last night. He and the home plate umpire spent a couple innings looking for it. A metal detector was involved in the search. It was weird. [Deadspin]
  • Bryan Goldberg, founder of Bleacher Report and now Bustle, doesn't need us to mock him because he does a good enough job of it himself. (By the way, if any of you ever send me BR links, be warned that I will not use said links . . . EVER. I will not pander to that sort of bullshit swill.) [Gawker]


CrossCheckRaise likes to alert me when Mental Floss has a worthy video, and this one delivers . . . it's about regional English slang. Though I call bullshit on the first one (I never heard the term "pop" to refer to "soda" until I moved to Montana):

Not shockingly, a lot of these terms deal with the Northeast. WICKED PISSAH.
