Hello everyone, I'm back again for this week's links from the NW Division. Please enjoy as I continue to search out the best of the NW Division blog writers.
Low on Oil thinks that Penner may be earning himself a spot on the Team Canada Olympic roster...
-I would think that they are mistaken, but interesting read anyways.
One of the writer's for Hitting the Post, aptly named Wild Road Tripper is following the Wild on their roadtrip. They started in Toronto, will miss Tampa Bay, but be in DC for the Capitals game for Friday's nights game.
-Love the idea of hockey game roadtripping. The best part about the post is that when they hit Canada, because everyone up here clearly knows someone who knows someone who played with someone in the NHL:
The customs inspector played hockey with the brother of Cal Clutterbuck and still plays locally in and around Niagara Falls with his cousin, and also has met Owen Nolan, another Niagara region native. "You have tickets?" he asked. "Yes, sure do" was our reply. I thought for a minute that we were going to do a live version of 'Leafs Lunch'.
Hit the Post travels down to St. Louis and discovers that 'all you can eat snacks' really mean all you can eat popcorn, peanuts, ice cream, cheeseburger, turkey sandwich, dibs ice cream treats, pepsi, diet pepsi, sierra mist....
Mozy19 from Canucks Hockey Blog compares Forsberg vs Sundin and makes a case as to why it IS a good idea for the Canucks to try to sign him.
And for you stats heads out there (not me), Five Hole Fanatics explains how to calculate your own team's scoring chances yourself, which sounds to me as exciting as learning derivatives in Math 101...but hey, to each their own.
Do you think that you've written something worthy of next week's list? Are you a reader of a smaller blog and feel it deserves some attention? Drop me an e-mail at thevancitycanuck [at] gmail.com and maybe you'll end up in the next NW Links around the League.
