Today's links from around the hockey world . . . 

-- A moving, emotional story about the hope for Olympic dream fulfillment for a late teammate.

-- Benoit Pouliot has been a difference-maker for the New York Rangers early in his stint there. Pouliot definitely has his positive attributes, but the cracks in his game also become readily apparent over time.

 -- A stick salute to the Stanley Cup of Chowder for a funny mock suspension video for John Scott after his head shot on Loui Eriksson. I usually think that stuff falls flat when trying to be funny, but this was good.

-- Former Bruins prospect Joe Colborne is getting comfortable with his new home in Calgary with the Flames, after getting dealt from the Maple Leafs over the summer.

-- The man, the myth and the mullet: Jaromir Jagr passes Phil Esposito for the top spot on the NHL’s all-time game-winning goal list.

-- Those following the Edmonton Oilers out west are trying to retain positivity, but that’s difficult as things keep sinking further and deeper into the hockey muck.

-- For something completely different: The difficult of capturing Jack Kerouac in today’s world of filmmaking.
