Could an NHL memo sent to off-ice officials be a harbinger that the NHL lockout is mercifully about to end?

The San Jose Mercury News catches up with former MLB commissioner Fay Vincent and polls him for opinions about what the NHL should now do.

The Edmonton Journal says that Taylor Hall has never looked better than he does right now at the AHL level in Oklahoma City. Okay, but it would make Edmonton fans happier if they could say that at the NHL level.

A solid image from our friends in Nashville: Kostitsyn and Radulov as the Butabi Brothers from Night at the Roxbury.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins continues to dominate for Team Canada at the World Juniors and has his eyes set on lockout gold.

It would appear that the approach of Gary Bettman and the NHL negotiating team has changed in recent days. Isnt that interesting?

For something completely different: Ive never seen a more unmitigated media project than the Red Sox beat writers' attempt to rehab John Lackeys image. The man has done a lot more than just saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Mark my words: this Lackey thing in Boston will end badly as it probably should have never happened in the first place.
