Some Good Reading
Just some suggestions for your reading pleasure this Monday morning, since lord knows no one wants to actually be awake/do work on a Monday morning ...
First off, as the British are usually funny - intentionally or not, here is a column in the Telegraph that made me laugh. It is about the two Ducks Kings games this weekend and is by a very uninformed British writer.
Now for a guy who knows what he is talking about, Larry Brooks wrote a column yesterday in the NY Post about the Garden's legal action against the NHL. It strangely paints Jim Dolan as a hero for once, and I am inclined to agree.
Back in Europe, a hockey player suddenly passed away during an Italian League game. Now I know that isn't bright sunshiny news for a Monday morning but it does have some good lessons in it -- the key one being life is short, enjoy it while you can. Darcy Robinson died doing something he loved; we should all be so lucky.
And finally, this blog is one of the things I love to do so I am going to whore it out, lol. Please feel free to check out the awards predictions I did last month here, here and here. And feel free to hold me to them.
Already one of my preseason predictions hasn't worked out - for those of you who picked up Petr Kalus in fantasy, he didn't make the team out of camp - the Minnesota Wild decided to sign their top pick in 2006, James Sheppard, instead but have yet to give him the nod between Gaborik and Demitra. Whoever gets that slot will be fantasy gold. So go onward and check your fantasy teams, its a helluva lot more fun and personally productive than those TPS Reports you haven't been doing ...
