Definitely worth reading:



Kevin Hayes

It's mid-August. News is slow.


Happy Kevin Hayes Day, NHL [Ryan Lambert, Puck Daddy]


I've talked up Hayes a couple times on these boards. Kid is good. Very good. I assume Kenny will make a push for him, but, well, Dan Cleary. Calgary does seem to be the logical front-runner.


Where do you think he ends up?

That Time Mike Vernon Used the Jedi Mind Trick

Thought this was worth pointing out:


How Mike Vernon set the stage for Patrick Roy's trade from Montreal [SBNation.com]

Mike Vernon: I recall even having a conversation with Patrick Roy, in Montreal, at the little breakfast place there, the spot we always used to go to. And uh, I just walked in by myself and I was early to the rink or something like that, and he was there like "Mike, come here, I want to talk to you." He goes, "The pressure, the media, the fans..." he was just... I knew he was thoroughly upset about all of this, and it was really bothering him. And I said, Patrick, you just have to get traded. I said I got traded, I'm enjoying it in Detroit and everything else, and lo and behold that game was the game where he went up to the president.


Adds a neat little wrinkle to the Wings-Avs rivalry.

Worth a read.

Slow News Day Thread

15 June 2014 - 10:36 AM

Maybe I'm going too far here (I'M OUT OF CONTROL, MAN), but I thought it might be nice to have a thread of random hockey-related news item stuff. The idea being, like, I come across this a few minutes ago...




...and I kinda wanted to make a thread about it, in which I'd say, "Yeah, slow news day." But it'd be a stupid thread that'd get, like, one reply.


I dunno. Can we give it a try? We're bound to have some really slow news days this summer, even with the draft and free agency and prospect stuff and whatnot. Cool?
