FOH (Friend of Haggs) Greg Wyshynski has Brian Burke taking umbrage with reporters holding up the Pittsburgh model of building a hockey franchise as the Gold Standard.

The Scores website has the top 10 hits from the 2011-12 season. I didnt check all ten, but Im hoping that the Chris Neil hit on Johnny Boychuk. That was the best hit I saw all year.

Sports Illustrated scribe Stu Hackel has whats left for the NHL also-rans that didnt make the playoffs this time around.

Stephen Whyno says that recovering playmaker Nicklas Backstrom is the center of attention for the Washingtn Capitals.

A good feature on Henrik Lundqvist with the playoffs looming right around the corner. This could be a big year for King Henrik as he preps for his first career Vezina Trophy winner.

Looks like Steven Stamkos was scoring all those goals with an injured left shoulder. That dude gets more impressive by the day.

Oilers coach Tom Renney says hes part of the solution rather than the problem for Edmontons hockey club.

For something completely different: Looks like the Big Tuna isnt coming back with the New Orleans Saints.
