Wednesday Links - The Definition Of Insanity

New, comments

The Blues apparently are content with seeing if Albert Einstein's definition of insanity really IS true (look it up) . . . the hard way. That, and other links.

See? The Blues apparently don't give a shit either.

BLUES NEWS:

  • Five playoff series in four years, with one series win and having lost home ice advantage in every one of them is apparently good enough for the Blues, so Ken Hitchcock will be back next year. One-year deal. [SLGT]
  • And to boot . . . let's bring back all the assistants too! Obviously, that's worked as well. [SLGT]
  • Could this move bring a San Jose-like toxicity eastward? Not if they make player moves, but that's hard to do in the modern NHL. [SLGT]
  • There was SOME optimism regarding the move. [SLGT FanPosts]
  • Josh Cooper had some interesting thoughts on Hitch that didn't echo mine, but did raise the possibility. [Puck Daddy]
  • Aaaaaaaand as is tradition, we recorded Episode 87 of Beyond Checkerdome BEFORE the news. [SLGT]

STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS:

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • There will be a hockey game tonight. The Blues will not play in it. [NHL.com 05/27/15]
  • Matt Beleskey gon' get overpaid, yo. But you knew that. Ryan Lambert finds a way to reiterate it in Trending Topics. [Puck Daddy]
  • The City of Seattle still wants a basketball team before building a new arena. Not so much with a hockey team. Can't let go of the Supersonics, can you guys? [USA Today]
  • A dog has figured out how to go through a passage with a stick better than a hockey player has, apparently. You might remember the hockey player GIF from earlier this season. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • The wife of Nathan Gerbe had a, as the Hurricanes' Twitter account put it, "GerBaby" on Monday. [Twitter / @NHLCanes]

OTHER SHIT:

  • I don't like posting stuff from The Big Lead because yeah, they're usually terrible, but . . . this 88-year-old at Rockies fantasy camp is a badass. (S/T to blueshockeyohbaby) [The Big Lead]
  • FIFA officials were arrested at a bigwig meeting in Switzerland and now face extradition to the United States on federal corruption charges. Well. This could be fun. [New York Times]
  • Well, Ruben, maybe if the Phillies weren't so shit-awful because of your moves, people wouldn't "bitch and complain" about your team. Sound a bit familiar, Blues fans? Think Hitch would say something like this? Right, like he cares. [Deadspin]
  • If you're in Texas and Oklahoma and reading this, please stay safe. Floods are no fun. As those of us from St. Louis and were around in 1993 would know. [NPR.org / The Two-Way]
  • 4 facts about John Wayne, who ruled, and would have turned 108 yesterday . . . right, like he would've lasted that long. [Mental Floss]
