Morning Skate 111: Thornton video making waves

Bruce Arthur with a solid column on what goes into the Bruins and Canucks holding such an electric, contemptible rivalry and why thats so engrossing at the NHL level.

A Vancouver Province blogger that uses esoteric reaches at humor to varying degrees of success in deconstructing the Shawn ThorntonTony Gallagher CSNNE hit from Tuesday night. Methinks youre trying a little too hard to be funny, chief.

The Pro Hockey Talk Boys have their own take on the ThorntonGallagher tiff, and let the video speak for itself.

The Orange County Register has a nice piece on Teemu Selanne thriving and surviving through the ravages of time and the savage NHL.

I always wondered what happened to Paul Shirley after he stopped writing on the Bill Simmons web site and now we find out that he went through his own personal Razors Edge experience.

For something completely different: when Darth Vader attacks.
