- Joe Pelletier features an interesting question: is Joe Nieuwendyk Hall of Fame worthy?
Not sure, but I do know that he makes it in my "better double check the spelling of that last name" HOF. That's gotta count for something.
- As I discussed at Battle of California, the DFW mainstream media is reducing the number of Dallas Stars beat writers from two to one (Mike Heika).
It's not great news for anyone, really, but will this prompt the Stars to be more warmly receptive to bloggers? It's something all NHL teams should consider in an economy that is struggling.
- Sunday was a great day for Steeltowners as the Steelers advanced to the SuperBowl and the Penguins shut out the Rangers 3-0.
Too bad the Rangers looked as flat as Kate Hudson in that game.
- Say what you will about "The Masked Avenger," anyone who mocks the obnoxious duo of Pierre McGuire and Mike Milbury cannot be all bad.
The pathetic little slapfight the two talking heads displayed during NBC's coverage was just embarrassing.
