"You are NOT . . . the starter!"

Fuck Chicago.


  • Episode #81 of Beyond Checkerdome rolled out last night. We talk about three Blues wins out of four games, information overloads, goaltending controversies and much more. And we drink beer. Because . . . beer. [SLGT]
  • Everything you need to know about tonight's game seems to be right here, from Lou. Jake Allen will start again. [In the Slot / Lou Korac]
  • Josh Cooper spills words about the goaltending controversy in St. Louis. [Puck Daddy]
  • Kevin Shattenkirk goes over the defensemen he thinks are elite in a two-part article. Yes, Alex Pietrangelo is on the list. (S/T to CrossCheckRaise) [The Players' Tribune]



  • Three games last night. Nice job peaking at the wrong time, Stars! Whoops. [ 04/08/15]
  • Eleven games tonight. Including that one. At that place. [ 04/09/15]
  • ESPN's hockey braintrusts give their proposed names and logos for a possible Las Vegas team, which led to Pierre LeBrun being a smartass. (S/T to doubleduck) [ESPN]
  • Ryan Lambert has a lot of things to talk about in his Power Rankings, which--as always--are neither particularly powerful . . . nor are they actual rankings. [Puck Daddy]
  • One of the Red Wings' key deadline acquisitions was Erik Cole. He will miss the playoffs with a spinal cord contusion. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • The final NHL Central Scouting rankings ahead of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft are out. Not shockingly, Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel are at the top of the list. [USA Today]
  • The Canucks signed Derek Dorsett and Luca Sbisa to long-term extensions, for some reason. [Puck Daddy]


  • The Boston Marathon Bomber was found guilty of all counts. [NPR / The Two-Way]
  • Morgantown, WV is trying to ban couch-burning. The home of West Virginia University has a bit of a problem with that, if you don't know. [Deadspin]
  • Godzilla apparently is now welcome in Tokyo. Fascinating. [Y! / AP]
  • Giancarlo Stanton can do more than bash baseballs into oblivion. He can catch and throw baseballs pretty well too. [SB Nation / Lookit]


One of us might've posted this one before, but if not . . . That Mitchell and Webb Look can see the business meeting going on in my brain:

Merger. DRINK!

My wife takes the helm tomorrow. Send her your links, your videos and your miscellaneous stuff:

Oh, and finally . . . Fuck Chicago.
