*The Toronto Maple Leafs are off to a hot start, but can they defy the advanced stat percentages forever.

*Matt Cooke wants to reach out to Patrick Kaleta, and bring him back from the dark side of the force after the Buffalo Sabres’ cheap shot artist got 10 games for his head shot on Jack Johnson. What a choice for a mentor.

*Georges Laraque has confirmed that he’ll be battling fraud charges as his spotty career after being an NHL enforcer continues.

*Interesting trade chatter between the Edmonton Oilers and Buffalo Sabres with Ryan Miller and Tomas Vanek potentially getting shipped out to Oil Country.

*New Flyers defenseman Mark Streit is looking forward to experiencing the Flyers/Penguins rivalry up close and personal.

*Not sure if I linked to this before, but here it goes again if I did: good stuff from John Buccigross about his humble New England beginnings in the hockey world.

*For something completely different: ever wonder what the girl for the “Blurred Lines” video’s idea of a perfect date is? You’re welcome.
