Two things

5. The right to a “jury of your peers” is a fallacy. There isn’t going to be 12 Russian hockey players in the jury box to decide Slava Voynov’s fate. via Top 10 Things to Keep in Mind (And You May Not Realize) About Slava Voynov’s March 2 Trial | Surly & Scribe. It’s funny…

Points Blown Logjam

According to me, the Kings are now in the second wild card spot. Two points blown now separate four teams, CGY, WPG, LAK and MIN. This logjam is not so clear when you look at the official standings because WPG has played 2 or 3 more games than the other three teams (3 more than…

Deal Stoll for a veteran Willie Mitchell replacement. Recall Mike Richards, whose numbers at this shitty low ebb for him are still as good as Brown’s, and give him better…
