Our own Phylliskessel was on CentreIce TSN690 today talking to HEOTP's Robyn Flynn.

UPDATE: A recording is here.

El Seldo's been reporting for us on the WWJ, and his daily recaps of each and every game are some dedicated work. He reported on Canada's win yesterday as well as the rest of the tournament, and his piece (with the assistance of all of Gunnar's gifs) is an excellent read.

After John Scott vote, NHL will limit All-Star Game fan influence: Report | Puck Daddy
"You're going to see a situation where the League decides if it’s going to be that the fans just have a portion of the vote – not all of the captaincy votes – or could it just be that there's a list online that you're going to be able to vote from. I think it’s pretty safe to say we're not going to see the same kind of all out voting that we saw this year and what it resulted in with the captaincies."
