All-Star Break Stuff
Long break so I found some stuff to keep you entertained
From THE SCORE POWER RANKINGS for the All-Star Break…
# 2 CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS – The Blackhawks will be without Dan Carcillo for an extended stretch, which will force them to ice a much better fourth line featuring Ben Smith, Teuvo Teravainen and Joakim Nordstrom.
#9 PITTSBURGH PENGUINS – Is there a Wikipedia list of ways the Spinal Tap drummers were killed? No? Let’s just use Olli Maatta’s recent injury report instead.
#19 MINNESOTA WILD – If this trade with Arizona for a goalie gets the Wild turned around, we may look back and say they made the deal in the “Dubnyk of time.”
“This is the way the world ends; Not with a bang but a Kuemper.”
#21 OTTAWA SENATORS – Ex-Sens coach Paul Maclean was at the Bell Centre tonight. Or, as Michel Therrien calls him, “Sens Coach #9”.
#23 COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS – An NHL All-Star team named after Nick Foligno belongs in the “Hey, that will make zero sense to anybody a decade from now!” pantheon. Sandwiched between “former NHL Player of the Month Lee Stempniak” and former Vezina Trophy award winner Jim ‘the net detective’ Carey!
#25 PHILADELPHIA FLYERS – Michael Del Zotto is second among all Flyers defenders in time on ice per game, just in case you were wondering precisely how Philadelphia is managing to waste Jakub Voracek’s career year.
#26 CAROLINA HURRICANES – Congratulations to Alexander Semin on being literally the only player in hockey whose team might consider trading him straight up for David Clarkson.
#29 EDMONTON OILERS – (summarized) After Yakupov snipes his only shoot-out attempt of the season, coach Todd Nelson reveals that Oilers analytics had been advising against using Yakupov in shootouts. Makes sense, but….. Edmonton Sun reporter then tweets “Since Yakupov had zero career attempts, his scoring percentage was 0. Thus, everyone else was ranked higher, analytically. Total insanity!”
#30 BUFFALO SABRES – A Modest Proposal: Just bring Connor McDavid to center ice during Flyers and Sabres intermission, have them wave $$ and see which bench he skates to.
Just Big Daddy Buff crowning a few Kings & a unloading an avalanche on Barrie

And from the NFL
Now, if you’ve got 20 minutes and want to watch a documentary on Famous Sports Heroes, this is the one to watch. Plus the narrators are all drunk. Hilarious!
And my personal favorite Drunk History short, Mark Twain
