Dany Heatley sues his former agent for 11 million and continues an impressive list of things that make me pretty sure Heatley is one of the bad guys in the NHL world. He may be well within his rights here, but I havent heard many good things about an ultra-talented player thats been traded a handful of times in his All-Star level career.
The NHL tactics from the owners is about a huge cash grab and not much more, according to the National Post. Tom Benjamin from the Canucks Corner frames the CBAlockout argument in a way that people should be optimistic the season wont be interrupted in a major way. Interesting take, but I still dont think the players are going to be as agreeable as Benjamin characterizes in this piece. Jack Todd takes some swings at Gary Bettman in his Sunday Thoughts column for the Montreal Gazette.
What does a players day with the Cup say about their personality? Harrison Mooney from Yahoo! Sports tell us exactly that.

Toucher and Rich get Milan Lucic to sing a few notes in the vein of 'Rad' Marchand. Youd never guess the big guy sang in the choir in high school, would you? Good for Lucic being such a good sport, and congrats to Rich on another brilliant bit.
