Afternoon Delight: North American Bias

Do we dislike Euro hockey players?; an invitation to listen to the radio; some WHL news and notes; collegian profiles; woman under glass

  • After a hiatus in this column, INCH is back with the Zed’s on A-Z. Check out profiles on Ryan Zaploski and Scott Zurevinski. Sorry for dropping the ball here. If you want to go back, there are lots of excellent profiles on collegians at Inside College Hockey.
  • Remember to tune in to Psycho Lady as she appears on the Preds on the Glass radio program tonight, at 8pm EST. If reading is your bag, she has several new pieces up, including a season preview. The season preview is long, but worth it. (Thats what she said)
  • Former Regina Pat Brad Hornung is back blogging, and offers some game notes on a tilt between the Regina Pats and the Brandon Wheat Kings.
  • Greatest Hockey Legends has a thought-provoking piece about the alleged bias of North American fans towards European players. Expect the Wheaties to compete with the Blades to be the class of the WHL this season.
  • A feature story on describes the similarities between the Detroit Red Wings and Farjestad of the Swedish Elite League. Interesting comparisons.
  • Some interesting news and notes from Taking Note, where the WHL’ers still at NHL camps are listed, along with an interesting little story about the Crushed Can in Moose Jaw. Oh my, does MJ need a new barn or what?
