Just stuff

Really liked one Frans Nielsen quote this morning and rearranged Friday's story to get it in. Try 'n' pick it out. Meanwhile, here's some links to the weekly stuff.

Here's where to find the All-Star Game in a couple of weeks.

In that other league, the one with the salary cap and three-man bonus rounds, they're of course wearing different pajamas next week. Punchline withheld.

In that other other league, the one with the salary cap and the initials that don't stand for anything anymore... oh, wait, that joke works either... anyway. In the ECHL, Mike Jarmuth won a skills competition competition, and in the game, Luke Curtin had a goal, and training-camper Ken Magowan had a goal and an assist.

Up I-91, Sean Burke's back in the NHL. And this has probably been around, but I just noticed it in the weekly release: the Wolf Pack's 10th anniversary site.

Brandon Smith gets Bill Ballou's midseason Eddie Shore Award. (Have I said how great it is to have Bill Ballou back in the AHL? If so, I haven't said it often enough.)

From ThePensBlog.com: David Volek hits the post... and an alternate-reality 1993 ensues. (Filthy. Horrible. Hilarious.)

More random than usual: Why Mark Cuban doesn't wear a suit. Democratic frat row house exposed in the NYT. Sammy Sosa is setting the bar high for a second consecutive Doug Gilmour Memorial "I Retire. No, Wait, I Don't -- Do I?" Award.

Adding: Eric Godard got the call again.

And as they bring down the shattered shell of the Coliseum this weekend, one last tip of the cap to Kimber Auerbach for putting the Nighthawks Reunion together last week. A nice day.
