So I figured that I would follow in the great Deadspin's footsteps and provide a round-up of interesting articles in the morning with a little commentary.
I'll leave the comments open for name suggestions in the hopes of actually getting some good ones. Also, if you come across any interesting articles or blog posts or write your own e-mail them to me and I'll try to include them. Anyway, here is today's installment:
Steve has an article on one of the Leafs' terrible prospects. What a second? Same rating as Alexander Semin? Kulemin's setting scoring records? That can't be right. Let's trade him.
Tim Wharnsby finds out why Antropov was suspended. The rules mention that suspensions can be levied for scaring the referee. Antropov doesn't see how a 6'6" Kazakh screaming in a foreign language is scary. Actually, it reminds me of the joke about sinning a lot because Jesus died for our sins so we better make his death worthwhile. Basically, Antro should have killed the refs.
E. Zack Lee has a kind of funny round up of the Leafs' upcoming schedule changes. Those Girl Guides are tough cookies.
This should really be free this year. Seriously, skills competition? How are they going to show off their magic ability to not tie up a forward's stick in front of the net or how to cough up leads in the third period?
- Two points out of last in the East and four out of last in the league. Time to get to know some prospects: Steven Stamkos, Drew Doughty, Alex Pietrangelo, and Nikita Filatov.
