NEW YORK - Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while happy to be friends with New York City, even if I don’t "heart" New York like the sign says at the airport when you land.
*Good piece from FOH (Friend of Haggs) Dave Stubbs on Harry Sinden happy that his longtime boss, Jeremy Jacobs is getting recognized by the Hockey Hall of Fame. Sinden was the face of Jacobs ownership in Boston for a long, long time and together they put a lot of playoff teams on the ice year in and year out, even if the Cups didn’t follow in the late 1970’s, 1980’s or 1990’s as well.
*Roberto Luongo talks to my good buddy Chuck Gormley about his Italian heritage, his Twitter following and other things, but I’m not sure they got to the tire pumping.
*Apparently, the Toronto Maple Leafs were messing with the signage at one of their road arenas, and it’s caused a ripple with the hockey people in Canada.
*PHT writer James O’Brien has Washington Capitals backup goalie Philipp Grubauer dropping F-bombs after losing another game this season.
*There isn’t much to dislike about Colton Parayko’s game, but his five-on-five numbers haven’t really lived up to the hype thus far.
*For something completely different: Count me as bummed if the whole “Dark Universe” thing doesn’t happen. I actually liked the Mummy and thought they were on the right track with the whole shared monster universe thing.
