Tuesday Links - Another Dance With The Devil(s)

Tonight's goal is to avoid a repeat of THIS scene.
Tonight's goal is to avoid a repeat of THIS scene.

Perhaps this go-around will go a bit better than the one last Tuesday in Newark.


  • Blues beat writer Lou Korac discusses the latest Ryan Miller rumor shitstorm and other things revolving around the Blues in his notebook feature. Jaroslav Halak gets the start tonight. [In The Slot / Lou Korac]
  • Speaking of those silly trade rumors . . . a bit of a dual-sided debate (and one I agree with, largely) on whether or not a trade for Miller would be "worth the squeeze". (s/t to @buffa82 for writing and sending this to me) [Dose of Buffa]
  • Jon Hamm was a guest of honor at the Ducks-Kings game at Dodger Stadium on Saturday. Of course, he brought a Blues hat. No, not THAT one. (S/T to @D_Vilhelm) [StL Today]
  • Hoosier Blue was active yesterday . . . first, he continued his tracking of former St. Louis Blues still active in professional hockey by looking at the likes of Cam Janssen, "Monkey Arms" Mike Weaver and Brad Boyes, among others. [SLGT]
  • Then, Hoosier Blue posted this on "panic buttons, overconfidence and the screwing of the pooch". It's a good read. There's a poll, too. (And for the record, I picked Option 4.) [SLGT]
  • Remember that goal from Thomas Vanek on Saturday that ended up not counting? Well, Kerry Fraser says it SHOULD have counted. All the more reason to believe they got the call right in Toronto. [TSN]
  • When old pal Mike Danton says he had more freedom in prison than he had playing hockey somewhere, you know he doesn't have much nice to say about a place. Here's his perspective on playing hockey in Kazakhstan. It ain't pretty. [Mike Danton]
  • Looks like the crew is getting a GTGT together for Sarah Connors' return to St. Louis . . . a skating outing at Steinberg Ice Rink on Saturday, February 8th at noon CST. BE THERE! (If you skate.) [Linkless Tidbit]


  • For everything you need to know about the New Jersey Devils, be sure to check out In Lou We Trust. And again, let's tell them how much of an asshole Judge Houston was. [In Lou We Trust]
  • A 1-on-1 with Devils veteran defenseman Andy Greene. (Another big thank you to David Kerans for this) [The Voice of Russia]


  • Six games last night. According to all reports, they all concluded with a result. Our old pal David Perron had himself an evening . . . his second career hat trick. Fun tidbit . . . both have been against the Canucks! [ 01/27/14]
  • Eleven contests on the evening. I bet special attention will be paid by most of you to the one in St. Louis. [ 01/28/14]
  • Remember how Obscene Alex created the Conference III Crown of Shit last week? Well, as he points out, the "Shit Lid" will be kept moist by Malort for the next month as it remains with the Blackhawks. That and more in his [Redacted] Week In Review. [III Communication]
  • Michel Therrien is to blame for most of the problems with the Montreal Canadiens, according to Ryan Lambert in his weekly What We Learned piece. [Puck Daddy]
  • Jay Feaster's LinkedIn profile was apparently written by a 12-year-old. Actually, a 12-year-old might be able to spell better than Jay Feaster. [Puck Drunk Love]
  • Marco Sturm retired. Remember when he was one of the first great German hockey players? Yeah, that lasted. [Puck Daddy]


  • J.R. Lind, the guy that runs III Communication, has a day job with the Nashville Post. There, he wrote this excellent piece with a lot of puns regarding a burgeoning disagreement between two pasta joints. [Nashville Post]
  • I don't really do basketball, but Chris Bosh doing the Carlton dance will always get linked on this here corner of the inner tubes. [SB Nation]
  • Farting cows started a barn fire in Germany. DAS FURZ. [Y! / Reuters]
  • Gay people? Nope, none in Sochi. So says the mayor, probably while he had a thumb up his own ass. [Deadspin]




Have something to show the class? A lot of people did today. Be one of them! Send me links, send me videos, send me things to show the kids:

And check back later for more written goodness from the awesomeness that is the St. Louis Game Time writing staff. And if you're headed to the DrinkScotch, be sure to spend $4 on that rag, yo. And tip your vendor, you cheap bastard.
