Non-Playoff Teams/Stories:

  • Chris Zelkovich of the Toronto Star says fighting isn’t always responsible for changing the momentum of the game.  (Writer’s note: Maybe he’s been reading this site, as I’ve been arguing the same thing for the past two days)
  • Not surprisingly, Canada dominated Hungary at the World Hockey Championships.

    Zelkovich is an idiot. He is somehow slower witted and knows less about hockey than Cox. This guy watches tv all weekend so he can write a column every Monday morning criticising everyone he does not agree with. What a job, where do I sign up?

    He is not agreeing with you, he just hates fighting.

    A word of advice, if Zelkovich agrees with you, you are more than likely wrong. The last thing you want to do is link your column with his.

    But otherwise please keep up the good work
