Tuesday Links - All Your Morrows Are Belong To Us

New, comments

Brenden Morrow's here. Third prize is you're fired. Suspensions and gruesome pictures. Calgary's coach has no clue who their goalie is. Rich Clune is silly. Duck Dynasty is also silly. And guitar solos. Seattle rocks.

If you ever get the chance to visit Seattle, Washington . . . take it. It's a really cool city.

If you ever get the chance to click on these links . . . do it. It's a really cool thing to do.

BLUES NEWS:

  • Brenden Morrow signed, putting the Blues slightly over the cap. Hildy wonders why, while the rest of us wonder how he fits in. (By the way, I like the deal, though it puts me in a minority among sane Blues fans, if we even still exist.) [SLGT]
  • The ECHL/AHL/NHL structure has been cleared up for the Blues (and the Canucks, and both their AHL affiliates, but whatever), but it's still about as clear as mud. (S/T to CrossCheckRaise) [ECHL.com]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • The Winter Classic concept is getting watered down to nothing, as Ryan Lambert points out in his weekly "What We Learned" piece. [Puck Daddy]
  • John Scott explains why it was Phil Kessel he went after, and somehow does it without portraying himself or Kessel as a gutless plug. Admirable. You still suck at hockey, Mr. Scott. [Buffalo News]
  • Down Goes Brown gives his more-than-Cliff-Notes version of what went down between the Sabres and Maple Leafs on Sunday. [Grantland]
  • Continuing on this thing . . . officially, David Clarkson was suspended ten games for coming off the bench to join Sunday's fray. [NHL.com]
  • Dale Weise shoulder-to-headed Taylor Hallin a Canucks vs. Oilers preseason game. He's suspended three preseason games. [Puck Daddy]
  • But the bigger news from that game was a slash Zack Kassian connected on toward Sam Gagner, and for that, Kassian got three preseason games AND five regular season games without a paycheck. [Puck Daddy]
  • Following that incident, Gagner tweeted out a pic of himself. It's pretty damn brutal. [Twitter / @89SGagner]
  • And finally . . . Mark Spector spoke to Oilers forward Ben Eager about it . . . and, well, Eager had some choice words. [Twitter / @SportsnetSpec]
  • Who's starting in goal for the Calgary Flames? Don't ask Bob Hartley, he doesn't know yet. But since he's THE GODDAMN HEAD COACH . . . he should know, right? [Calgary Sun]
  • Rich Clune is a bit overconfident about the Predators' chances. Apart from them being called the "Perds" [Sunbelt Hockey]

OTHER SHIT:

  • Replace "threatening" to *fucking stupid", and I'd get this ban. Otherwise, nitpicking. [Y! / AP]
  • Rashad Johnson lost part of his finger making a tackle Sunday. In case you thought all football players were pussies, he now has photos to prove they're indeed NOT. [Deadspin; Deadspin]

VIDEO:

The guitar solo has made a cool comeback as of late, as this video Kate pointed out to me shows:

I really like music, I guess.
