Welcome to another week in review of the NHL network here at FanSided. Even though the league itself is quiet, we certainly aren’t. Here’s some of our best posts from last week that you may have missed.
The third in a three part series about expansion and realignment in the NHL, Sabre Noise provides their observation of how the playoffs should be mapped out.
A Winning Habit talks about the Men Of Summer in Montreal.
One of the finest play by play announcer’s of our time, Sam Rosen celebrated a birthday last week. Blue Line Station pays a nice tribute to the “voice” of New York Rangers hockey.
The city of Pittsburgh, known as a working class, proud city expects the same out of it’s atheltes. Here’s Pens Labyrinth’s report on the Penguins All Blue Collar Bunch.
There’s a lot of “5″ of articles going around the FanSided NHL network over the past couple weeks. Here’s Bolts By The Bays’ list of 5 players he wants to punch!
Capitals Outsider has been giving some history lesson’s lately on former Caps players. Here’s a nice tribute to the late John Kordic.
Fire That Cannon seems to be making a very strong pitch for Tomas Kaberle to come to the Columbus Blue Jackets. A defenceman that could really change their image, but do they have what Brian Burke wants?
Oil On Whyte takes us back a bit in Edmonton Oiler history. Reviewing the first three captains of the team, you’ll be surprised by some of the names that were mentioned.
Rink Royalty has a very candid opinion of Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Tomas Kaberle. This was before it was determined that Kaberle wasn’t being traded.
NHL 2K 11 is on tour. Maybe coming to a city near you! Howlin Hockey talks, or should I say barks it up!
In another “5″ article, Bleedin Blue takes a look at the five teams he hates. Nice list, and I would have to say that there’s a bit of “hate” in most of them for me too, except for number three!
Additions: As we are getting closer to the start of training camp, we here at FanSided are continuing to build staffs at each of our respective NHL sites. We’ve experienced some significant growth this summer and are still working at it.
That leaves us with the Minnesota Wild as the last site left for us to fill with a lead writer, or co-lead writers. If that’s something that you’re interested in, please contact me at [email protected].
One last thing, and this has zero to do with hockey.
My business partner’s son is trying to live his lifelong dream of becoming a pro football player. Tonight on ESPN as the New York Giants play the New York Jets, Michael Greco will be wearing number 41 for the New York Giants. He’s been playing safety but don’t be surprised if he ends up at tight end for a few plays. Cheer him on. I’ve known Michael since he was about 7 years old, and no one deserves this chance more than he does!
