Every day we’re going to do our absolute best to bring you the top NHL reads from around the web.
Sometimes we’ll pull from larger sites like NHL.com, but for the most part the goal will be to sort through dozens of posts from more mid-range sites so you can see some things that maybe wouldn’t have made it onto your radar normally. If you like what these sites do then give them a follow on Facebook or Twitter, and share the content that you love!
Hockey fans make up one of the best communities around, and in a lot of ways, we’re all in it together.
Without further delay… your top posts for January 7, 2015.
From Alex Prewitt at The Washington Post, Barry Trotz is looking forward to coaching against former assistant, Peter Horachek.
You didn’t think hockey players got all the love from fans, did you? ScoutingTheRefs.com found a Boston Bruins fan that seems to have special feelings for a particular linesman.
Jason Gregor at The Edmonton Journal notes that the Edmonton Oilers are changing their practice habits under interim head coach Todd Nelson.
In case you were taking a break from hockey Twitter this morning, Josh Cooper has the latest on Mike Yeo’s apparent meltdown during the Minnesota Wild’s practice. From Yahoo! Sports.
From James Mirtle at The Toronto Globe and Mail, a new coach means new lines for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
At Pensburgh.com, Lyle Kossis undertakes the fun practice of comparing the stats of two nameless Pittsburgh Penguins players. This removes any bias while evaluating performance, and can lead to some interesting conclusions.
A nice question and answer segment with Philadelphia Flyers prospect Jesper Pettersson; from Shawn Reznik at TheHockeyWriters.com.
Brian Burke helped launch an MBA program for folks interested in pursuing a life as a front office manager in the NHL. Pretty cool stuff. From Elliotte Freidman at Sportsnet.ca.
Adam Gretz dissects the “Phil Kessel is inconsistent” argument with a scalpel. Well done, sir. From CBSSports.com.
And now for your moment of Zen…
