Afternoon Delight

Afternoon Delight: This and That

  • The Battle of California takes a dim view of Kings forward Brian Boyle. Hopefully Boyle can turn it around soon, as the Kings were very high on this young man not so very long ago.
  • Ken Campbell says that Ken Holland is the right man to lead Canada the Winter Olympics. You really can’t argue with Holland’s success.
  • The Stars blog says Marty Turco’s struggles should turn around soon. Dallas sure hopes so.
  • The Junior Report from the NY Times. This article is fast becoming a must read for me. I highly recommend it as a good run down of whats news in junior hockey.
  • Ted Leonsis forced to shut down his email address after fans take the Caps owner to task. This really isn’t a big surprise. For every thoughtful commenter, there are 10 idiots right behind him.
  • In a move not likely to endear them to the Oiler faithful, Sam Gagner and Andrew Cogliano were charging $25 per autograph at a recent session. Seems a little classless at first glance, but will reserve judgment until I hear the whole story.
  • Going Five Hole talks fantasy hockey.
