Well, you can't expect the news to be scintillating EVERY day.

BLUES NEWS:

  • The NHL released their national television schedule yesterday, and the Blues are on it 11 times. For those who want to bitch about lack of respect . . . that's one more than the usual league maximum, so cram it up your ass. [SLGT]
  • J-Mill has his thoughts on the national schedule and the exposure the Blues will get this year. [SLGT]
  • The new guy on the block, BBSuns (welcome aboard, Bill!), takes a look at the scouting report on Jori Lehtera . . . basically, you're gonna like him. [SLGT]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Told you it wouldn't last long. Know how I told you about Tim Peel joining Twitter yesterday? Well, turns out the CBA doesn't allow for active officials using social networking/media. Tim Peel not knowing the rules? STUNNING. Egg his house! [The Sporting News]
  • The Maple Leafs shook things up in their front office, telling Dave Poulin and Claude Loiselle to fuck off and bringing in 28-year-old Kyle Dubas as an assistant to GM Dave Nonis. [Maple Leafs]
  • The Leafs didn't stop there . . . they signed forward David Booth to a pretty inexpensive deal for one season. [National Post]
  • Winners and losers of the national television schedule. A winner? The Blues. So again, just take your respect card and cram it up your ass. The team is respected, and even if they weren't . . . who gives a rat's fucking ass? [Puck Daddy]
  • The Stars and Antoine Roussel agreed to an extension that will pay the sniveling douchebag forward $8MM over the next four seasons. [Defending Big D]
  • The Phoenix Arizona Coyotes may not have gotten their deal from the City of Glendale legally according to Arizona law, says Glendale's mayor, who presumably helped call the meeting if he's the fucking mayor. God these two deserve to bring each other to hell. [Puck Daddy]
  • Want an insanely awesome penthouse apartment in Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan that currently belongs to Henrik Lundqvist? Well, it can be yours today for the low, low price of $7MM! [NY Rangers Blog]

OTHER SHIT:

  • Cliff Lee's reaction to a bad outing Monday night? #FartNoise. No no no. Seriously. (S/T to Crazy Art Lippo) [Deadspin]
  • The Cardinals lost to the Rays yesterday at Busch. But back in Tampa, the Rays have a four-pound burger at one of their eateries. Holy shit. [SB Nation]
  • A bit of the first bag of legally-sold weed in Washington will be going to a museum in Seattle. Goddamnit, they really need a hockey team there. LISTENING, GLENDALE?! [Y! / AP]
  • Today is the 31st anniversary of the "Gimli Glider" incident. You really have to read this story if you haven't before or don't recall its' occurrence (I mean, I was 2 when it happened). It is excellent and so, SO amazing. (S/T to CrossCheckRaise) [Wikipedia]

VIDEOS:

Two of 'em . . . first . . . MAYFLIES! ALL OVER THE FUCKING PLACE!!!! (S/T to Kate):

Holy shit.

And also . . . Hank Green goes over the times he and his brother John have "punished" themselves for Vlog Brothers infractions. So, so amusing. (S/T to Kate again):

Lovely. Two of those punishments will be shown in detail tomorrow, by the way.

One more spin on the roundabout. Send your links, videos and other shit to me, mang:
