Afternoon Delight: Ideas and Excuses

  • The Prince George Cougars had their coaches wearing helmets at practice the other day. I am sure this is the way of the future. General litigiousness and fear of insurance premiums will mean more lids.
  • Coming Down the Pipe with an idea on how to spice up the ADT Canada-Russia Challenge. I think this is a great idea. The current format is a little stale and the CHL teams typically beat the Russians handily.
  • Did you know Chris Pronger has is own website and blog? (Hat Tip, Puck Daddy) I did not know that.
  • Adam Proteau has a few ideas on how to fill time on the NHL Network.
  • Jim Kelley of SI isn’t buying Barry Melrose’s excuses. He may be on to something here, but its tough to guess as to what went on in the room.
  • Good story on a German goalie who continues to play hockey despite being diagnosed with¬† brain cancer. Just a sec, there’s something in my eye.
  • Scott Burnside hands out grades for the teams. Pretty fair assessments.
