  • Jaromir Jagr still commands respect, even from opponents and former teammates like Maple Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk.
  • Ilya Bryzgalov questions the professionalism of the Philadelphia media in his own strangely unique way. I don’t know if it’s just the Russian translation, but his point of view is fascinating.
  • James Mirtle says that James Reimer has to be “more than ordinary” if the Maple Leafs want to stay alive in the playoff series. Ain't that the truth.
  • Luke Fox takes everybody back in the way back machine where 43 years ago today Bobby Orr went soaring through the air to clinch a Stanley Cup for the Boston Bruins.
  • Having some fun with the playoff hockey nights in Canada via Down Goes Brown and Grantland.com.
  • My CSN compatriot out in Chicago says that the high-powered Blackhawks were doing it with defense in the first round against the Minnesota Wild.
  • For something completely different: Cindy Walsh flirted with Dylan McKay during the 90201 years. That is so unseemly and very un-Waslsh-like behavior.
