BLUES NEWS:

  • Adidas will be in charge of NHL sweaters starting in 2017-18. Doesn't mean much for the Blues. [SLGT] But . . .
  • . . . what about corporate logos on jerseys? (The question should actually be . . . "how soon will this be a thing?") [SLGT]
  • Vladimir Tarasenko hates "Yo' Mamma" jokes (Hey, so do I, Vlad!) and likes St. Louis. That and more from a recent interview in Russia. [SLGT]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • A couple from Ryan Lambert. First, in What We Learned, he looks at why a team like the Penguins would want to bring in Sergei Gonchar on even a try-out basis. (And, later, properly takes down an exceptionally shitty Blues blog post.) [Puck Daddy]
  • Then, Lambert looks into whether or not the Kings are in decline in Trending Topics. [Puck Daddy]
  • The Ducks went bargain-hunting again, this time coming out of the Target clearance end-cap with forward Mike Santorelli on a one-year deal worth a smidge less than $900K. [TSN]
  • Awesome Estonian teenager's stick-handling display is awesome. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • The Flames (and the CFL's Stampeders) want to put a hockey arena and football stadium along the Bow River in Calgary. Remember, there was a massive flood from that river a couple years ago. Yeah, NOTHING could possibly go wrong here, eh? [Calgary Herald]
  • Meanwhile, get your first peek at 3-D renderings of the new Las Vegas arena that's expected to be completed by the spring. [Sportsnet]
  • Capitals forward Brooks Laich recently proposed to his girlfriend, Dancing With The Stars dancer Julianne Hough. [USA Today / FTW!]

  • The lawyer retained by Patrick Kane in the allegation mess he's caught up in . . . is arguing with people on Facebook about the case. Someone should tell him there are no billable hours to be had over there. [Deadspin]

OTHER SHIT:

  • Huge controversy in the world of Little League Softball . . . where a team was accused of intentionally throwing a game to keep a tough opponent from advancing. [Deadspin]

  • I want me one of these damn jackets, and so might you. [Mental Floss]
  • These two would-be robbers brought a knife to a sword fight. As you'll see, they didn't win. [NPR / The Two-Way]
  • The State of Idaho made their mile-marker more prone to theft by making a number much more unique than 420 for a mile post, just so they can keep it away from potheads. I've seen much more innovative ways to waste state money. [Y! / AP]

VIDEO:

Before Scott Bradlee became more known for being the Postmodern Jukebox guy . . . he played this incredible piano rendition of the Game of Thrones theme music:

Fuck yeah.
