*Justin Bourne provides some life advice for hockey players over at the Backhanded Shelf blog.

*Good column over at the National Post about Paul Bissonnette, and his attempts to evolve as fighting changes within the NHL landscape.

*A good piece in the New England Hockey Journal about CSNNE hockey analyst Tony Amonte turning things around for the Thayer Academy hockey program.

*Adrian Dater takes a stab at Tyler Seguin making over his image with the Dallas Stars. One quibble with the column: nobody really ever said Seguin was a “bad boy” in Boston. Just really, really immature with his social life registering as more important than his hockey career.

*The intrepid Jim Clark provides us with his Middlesex League high school hockey preview. Once again Stoneham High looks like an also ran.

*PHT writer Cam Tucker chronicles Mike Milbury’s message from last night: the message is not being heard when it comes to illegal hits in the NHL.

*Good video interview of Dan Murphy and Vancouver Canucks forward David Booth focusing on his eccentricities.

*For something completely different: excellent, excellent podcast with Rich Eisen and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, with some great behind-the-scenes stories.
