First, a quick rebuttal to a recent reader comment at FlamesNation. The comment reads as follows: “That’s actually the most terrible article I’ve ever read. I come for news and analysis, not this BS.”
Let me just say that I resent that and I believe the criticism is uncalled for. Furthermore, I’d like to make it clear that . . . oh wait a sec, it seems that for a very rare time, that remark wasn’t directed at me. My apologies, the defensiveness is just a force of habit.

Yesterday, the NHL said it would be investigating the contract signed between Marian Hossa and the Chicago Blackhawks on the ground that the two parties may have colluded to circumvent the salary cap allowed by the current collective bargaining agreement. Similarly, the league revealed today it will also have a peek at the Chris Pronger deal.
Please don't let the league know this, too, is all Sutter's fault.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing and many of us would look a hell of a lot smarter if we were able to go back in time and change some of our more dubious decisions. Remember that high school picture that you hoped would be quickly forgotten? Remember how you used to dress in those days? Did you think your favorite striped blue shirt would be gazed upon by millions of people on the internet years later when you became a massive celebrity? Looking back, probably not.
Yes, hindsight is often 20/20, particularly when it comes to hairstyles, tattoos and free agent signings.

The NHL is always looking at ways to generate more money, and don’t be surprised if you see you see a NHL jerseys sporting a “Wanye’s Rehab Clinic” logo in the near future.
USA Today had an interesting article describing that ads on practice and game jerseys will be reality very soon.
