Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while re-watching the entire Game of Thrones saga from the beginning, which has been very enjoyable even though I also read the books.
*It looks like Phil Kessel and Evgeni Malkin are sticking together, and other tidbits from around Pittsburgh Penguins camp.
*There’s another bitter player in camp with the Colorado Avalanche. This time, it’s Jared Cowen after not enjoying his experience with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
*It looks like the Calgary Flames are going to have all kinds of distractions preparing for the season in the form of back-and-forth about the future of their home arena.
*Like Alexander Ovechkin with the Washington Capitals, the New Jersey Devils players aren’t happy about the latest development in the NHL/Olympics story. Basically all NHL players are being barred from participating no matter what.
*Are the San Jose Sharks a playoff team? Time will tell, but they certainly still have some very good pieces to build around. Speaking of the Sharks good luck to FOH (Friend of Haggs) Kevin Kurz as he joins The Athletic outfit out of the Bay Area to cover the Sharks.
*For something completely different: I definitely dig the return of Jamie Lee Curtis to the "Halloween" franchise where it all started for her.
