  • The NHL Hotstove discusses the Marty Turco rumours as well as a new one suggesting Philadelphia as a destination for Ilya Kovalchuk. I don’t think Kovalchuk is going anywhere, can you imagine selling a rebuild to fans that barely notice your team anyways?
  • I found this blog through Facebook. It features a ton of great hockey video clips, give it a look if you have time. Its also for sale, strangely enough.
  • Hockey Independent offers its projected Team Canada lineup for the Olympics. I am not sold on sending Brad Richards. That team needs a little more grit, so I would favour Brendan Morrow over Richards, whose skills are duplicated on that roster.
  • An interesting story on NHL.com features Nikita Kashirsky, a friend of Alex Ovechkin’s currently in the ECHL with the Carolina Stingrays.
  • If you haven’t been over at Greatest Hockey Legends in a few days, go there right now. There are links to some cool old Canadiens and Leafs X-mas cards, stuff on Marty Brodeur and the Team Canada women’s selections. Just a plethora of good reading there today.
  • Since its been a long time, here is a link to Views from the Booth, for all your Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League news.
  • The weekly Hot List takes aim at Taylor Hall, widely thought to be the #1 overall pick in next spring’s Entry Draft. Lots of info about other WJC-bound players as well.
