  • Find out how obese, tall, and decrepit your favorite NHL team is. Heaviest team? San Jose. Tallest team? San Jose and Winnipeg. Oldest team? Florida(insert old people live in Florida joke here) and New Jersey. (Mirtle)
  • Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs is a complete tool bag. On the day hockey returned, he jumped at the chance to do what? Talk about the lockout and take shots at the NHLPA. Even going as far to say,”I’m the last guy that wanted to shut this down.” Yea. We believe you. (ESPN)
  • Hockey returns and… breaks a few NBC ratings records. No big deal. (NBC Sports)

  • The Shanahammer has dropped for the first time this season. This week’s victim is Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn. He has been suspended for 1 game for charging New Jersey Devil Anton Volchenkov on Tuesday. Seems Brendan Shanahan is getting an early start this season. (NHL)
  • I didn’t notice it last year when the Boston Bruins apparently did it, but why on Earth did the Los Angeles Kings hoist the Cup in celebration again after their banner raising? The NHL apparently makes them do that now. Oh, okay. That’s just silly. (The Score)
  • I’m sure you’ve already heard of the guy who kinda sorta maybe really looks like Ottawa Senators head coach Paul MacLean. If you haven’t, he showed up at a recent game and sat right behind the coach. His real name is Mike Watson. (The 6th Sens)
  • It’s always cool to see the history of your favorite team’s old jerseys. Some you like, others you… don’t like. But very rarely do you get to see the jersey ideas that didn’t make the cut. Well, here’s what the Pittsburgh Penguins COULD have been wearing back in the early 1990s. One word: Yikes! (Icethetics)
  • I find it interesting the rumor that MLSE wants to bring in Wayne Gretzky as Maple Leafs President. He reportedly isn’t interested. Becoming part of the Los Angeles Kings new ownership however… (Sportsnet)
  • Are teams already feeling the effects of a 1-week training camp and shortened season? In their home opener lost, Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said,”I thought we looked like we were out of gas.” After his team dropped to 0-2, Capitals coach Adam Oates says,“The guys looked like they didn’t have much in the tank.” (Puck Daddy)
  • There wasn’t a Winter Classic, but there was outdoor hockey this season. On Sunday, the AHL had their Outdoor Classic which featured the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins visiting their in-state rival Hershey Bears inside Hersheypark Stadium in front of 17,311 fans. (AHL)
  • Bloge Salming and Down Goes Brown have some fun with the Roberto Luongo trade rumors. And it’s good. Very good. Luongo Unchained, ladies and gentlemen. (YouTube)
