  • Good piece by James Mirtle detailing the difference between being a fan and covering a team for a major media outlet. Says everything and anything I’d always wanted to say to a certain cross-section of “Haggs haters”, of which there are many.
  • Could Brad Richards be a buyout candidate with the New York Rangers? It could definitely happen.
  • Flyers GM Paul Holmgren gives the head coach Peter Laviolette the dreaded “vote of confidence” in Philly.
  • The Edmonton Oilers fire GM Steve Tambellini and hire a “man of action” in former Bruins skaters Craig MacTavish.
  • Puck Daddy details how the Dallas Stars went from being sellers at the NHL trade deadline to playoff contenders in the matter of a couple of weeks.
  • Some Bruins tweets of interest: Tyler Seguin having a shared moment with a fish statue and Andrew Ference stocking up on vintage Bruins T-shirts on E-Bay. 
  • For something completely different: IMDB names “Field of Dreams” as the best baseball movie ever.
