UPDATES AT THE BOTTOM:

Richy is coaching hockey so here are some news and notes a la Drew:

Bob McKenzie talks Derek Morris and Martin Gerber.

Drew’s snarky comment: Unless you were looking to infuriate your fan base, why would you touch Gerber?

Is oft-injured Justin Williams about to be crowned?

Drew’s snarky comment: Hopefully the Kings subscribe to a good HMO—now if one of our American readers can explain what an HMO is, that would be great.

Pierre LeBrun says the Habs are out of the bidding for Olli Jokinen

Drew’s snarky comment: There are articles about Billie Jean King, a baseball video game, and a faux wedding program from Tom Brady’s wedding more prominently displayed than this article

Mark Recchi sits tonight in anticipation of a trade

Drew’s snarky comment: Does anyone else feel guilty for laughing at Two and a Half Men, seeing as how its Executive Producer, Oren Koules, has destroyed the Lightning this year?

More updates and snarkiness to come, as is warranted tonight

Update 1) No snarkiness here: Marion Hossa of the Red Wings has been carried off the ice on a stretcher after being hit into the boards tonight. Here is the article.
