*Interesting little piece of info with Alex Tanguay helping to sell Jarome Iginla on the idea of playing in Colorado for the next three years.

*Brooks Orpik dismisses the criticism about the bloated five year contract he signed with the Washington Capitals. Of course he does. What is he going to do…say “you know, you’re right. I am totally not worth this kind of money.”

*Katie Strang has an update on the Rangers defense corps, including Brian Leetch being impressed with Ryan McDonagh and no progress on a new contract for defenseman Marc Staal.

*Rob Rossi sits down for a long chat with Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, and gets the lowdown on his time in Pittsburgh and what’s coming next.

*Younger siblings Malcolm and Jordan Subban have had a taste of what big brother PK Subban’s world is like.

*Grantland is figuring out the best SNL cast member of all-time with a fun bracket, and my vote for the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) has to be for Eddie Murphy while carrying a bad cast through the dark years. Phil Hartman is great and I love him just like everybody else, but there has never been anybody funnier than Eddie Murphy on SNL.
