Afternoon Delight: Homey, I Ain’t Concerned

  • A football fan says that NFL officiating doesn’t look so bad when compared to the NHL. Meh. There have obviously been missed calls, but that’s going to happen. I think team loyalty sometimes magnifies perceived errors.
  • In his Tuesday post, Gregg Drinnan of Taking Note calls for a return to a one-referee system. See above. Refereeing, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
  • Crash the Crease notes (via TSN) that the Hamilton Bulldogs and Toronto Marlies will open next year’s AHL season in Scotland. I am interested to see how the Euros take to watching minor pro hockey.
  • David Staples comments on the rise of Jordan Staal and the fall of Marian Hossa.
  • Scott Burnside of ESPN weighs in on the hiring of Marc Crawford. I agree with Burnside. There are many good coaches available, and I think its a mistake to let Tippett go.
  • The Everything Hockey blog has a mock draft of 1-10. Nothing salacious here, just a very grounded guess as to how the first 10 will play out.
  • Bangin’ Panger talks accountability in the blogosphere. Take a minute and read this one.

Back in business on Tuesday as the Jets welcome former bench boss Paul Maurice and the Panthers to town.

The Moose have another day of practice.
