ROENICK STOPS BY

Jeremy Roenick scored 513 goals and 1216 points in 1363 games. In his first 15 seasons he was a point-a-game player scoring 1,124 points in 1,120 games, but then the lockout hit.

Grabovski headshot on Varlamov, Yakupov scores in the shootout, and more KHL

  Mikhail Grabovski drilled Colorado Avanlanche (currently Lokomotiv) goalie Semyon Varlamov right in the head in the first period of Lokomotiv’s game against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday. Was it on purpose? I’ll let you decide.  In other Wednesday KHL action, Nail Yakupov scores in the shootout, and Ilya Kovalchuk’s duo with Blues prospect Vladimir Tarasenko…

The NHLPA’s Recent Offer

The players union unveiled a new CBA offer this morning. It is fairly comprehensive and, unlike some of their previous offerings, has a sound basis for negotiation (from a league perspective, naturally).

In a Pension Plan Puppets discussion about Leaf performance on the Subway Super Series, somebody commented about a post I wrote over at Yahoo on Team Canada’s defensive prospects for the World Juniors.
