On my side of the border, HockeyNation looks at the new standards
of Hockey Canada
, as changes to the rules and arena-specs are implemented across the country at the amateur level -- a huge project. And down south, CasonBlog is predicting
that Aaron Ward
will be the man the Hurricanes' miss the most this coming season, while speculating on various possible trade scenarios involving Carolina.
At Hockey Rants
, Jes Gõlbez
mentions that Jaromir Jagr
just won the 'Golden Stick' award for being The Greatest Czech Hockey Player in all the History of Czech Hockey Players
. (Well, something like that!) And On Frozen Pond published a photo
of Ashley Judd
posing back in 1999, wearing nothing but a University of Kentucky hockey jersey. (Is this 'newsworthy'? Noooo... just a Monday morning gift
.) Safe for work, hockey fans.
Checking out the excellent The Puck Stops Here
over the weekend, I found this interesting statement
: "Brett Hull's 1990/91 season was... the best goal scoring season in the history of hockey."
TPSH backs up this madness with stats, so head over there and find out how such a thing could have happened.
In Vancouver, J.J. at Canucks Hockey Blog
points out that Markus Naslund, Brendan Morrison, the Sedin twins
and Dan Cloutier
were all hanging out at a local restaurant last week when a surprise special guest showed up
. And in Atlanta, Do The Thrashers Have Large Talons breaks down the Vishnevski trade
, while worrying about defense this coming season.
Hockey jerseys have been a frequent blog topic this off-season, and it has now escalated to the point where Ingmar Bergman Shoots & Scores Photoshopped a customized design
for Jerseys & Hockey Love
. JAHL also posts on the topic here
. (Very cool -- now I want one.)
Finally, this weekend I was introduced to what might be the rarest breed of hockey blogger -- a St. Louis Blues blogger! (And not that fake corporate one
, either.) So, I'm happy to introduce you to Greg at The Blue Note
, if you haven't been by yet.
See everyone in a few days!
: If you write a hockey blog and think that I might not know about you (ie. if you're not on Kukla's blogroll or on my own
) don't be shy about dropping me an email.
