Late Saturday Links - #HashtagWars

You not only get the shittiness of a late links post, but a battle of hashtags to go with it. Because you really need it. Or something. #SorryNotSorry

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Sometimes, #AverageGoaltenders have two Cup rings, y'know?

Apologies for the late links. The Links Factory locked everyone out until about right now. #NotGoodAtPickingLocks


  • Team Captain David Backes brought a friend to the room yesterday . . . Piggy Smalls. #RoarBacon [SLGTFanShots]
  • The Blues released Dainius Zubrus from his PTO and signed Martin Havlat to a one-year deal. Rumor has it Havlat separated his shoulder while signing the contract and will be out a minimum of two weeks. #Fragile [SLGT]
  • The Blues also activated Kevin Shattenkirk from the injured reserve list, and he'll play tonight in NashVegas. The team also sent down Ty Rattie, because of reasons and science I guess. #FreeRattie [StL Today]
  • Check the front page for game day #Content about the Blues. [SLGT]


  • The fine folks at On the Forecheck are host to SB Nation's home of the Predators, tonight's opponent. #Perds [On the Forecheck]
  • It'll be odd to see Ol' No. 5 in yellow this evening. #SirJaxx [StL Today]


  • Six games last night. #TheBlueJacketsAreATireFire [ 11/06/2015]
  • 11 contests today, including at least one going on while I type out these links. #LiveUpdates [ 11/07/2015]


  • Ryan Lambert looks at why the Wild(s) might regress in Trending Topics. #LaughAtDubnyk [Puck Daddy]
  • Here's another reason: Zach Parise is out "week-to-week" with an MCL sprain. #FightingOttIsBadKarma [Twitter / @mnwild]
  • The Canadiens unveiled their sweaters for the 2016 Winter Classic against the Bruins. #NotTooShabby [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis, who missed most of last season with blood clots, was taken to the hospital as a precaution due to related symptoms from those clots. Later reports said he'll be fine. #UnluckyBastard [USA Today]
  • It appears the Red Wings want to really fancify this new arena of theirs. I don't care, as long as Mike Ilitch is footing the bill for the overruns. #WasteOfPublicMoney [Sporting News]
  • Ducks resident asshole forward Corey Perry was hit along the boards, and as a result, his stick almost flew into the stands. #HelicopterWarning [SB Nation]
  • A look at Monday's Hockey Hall of Fame induction class by former Blues goaltender Jamie McLennan . . . he, of course, was teammates with one of the focal members of the class. You might know who I'm speaking of. #Retire44 [TSN]
  • Canada's Walk of Fame in Toronto is adding seven names. Two of them are long-time Hockey Night in Canada staples Don Cherry and Ron MacLean. How was Cherry (at least) not already there? #Grapes [Sportsnet]
  • Godfather of SB Nation's hockey sector, James Mirtle, looks at why the Maple Leafs shouldn't worry too much about the struggles of young center Nazem Kadri in the early going. #BadBadLuck [The Globe and Mail]


  • The international trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is out . . . and #HolyShit. [Nerdist]
  • Cowboys defensive star Greg Hardy is a real winner. #DisgustingAsshole [Deadspin]
  • Remember Adnan Syed, the "star" of the Serial podcast? He'll get a hearing on new evidence, months after Syed's case was granted a request for review and 15 years after he was convicted. #WrongfulConviction? [NPR / The Two-Way]
  • Here's an interesting long read about Pope Pius XII and his involvement with World War II. (Basically, he ordered the death of Adolf Hitler very early in both of their reigns.) #Longform [Mental Floss]
  • A digital camera? I would've thrown it back. #WaterloggedToys [Y! / AP]
  • Earlier today, Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg smacked an on-field official with a forward pass. Not intentionally, but still. #Doink [SB Nation / #Lookit]


The inspiration for today's links was @midnight, and their #HashtagWars.

CHOOSE ONE: 1) I'm sorry. 2) You're welcome.

Anyway, here's a Hashtag Wars recap from the week of October 19th's episodes:

Oh, and hey, it's less than a week until I see Chris Hardwick at the Midland in Kansas City. So . . . woohoo! #FunComfortableTour

Again, apologies for the late links and stuff. It'll never happen agAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA LIKE FUCK IT WON'T.

I believe Hoosier Blue has your links tomorrow.
