It’s Sunday, so it’s time for a link dump. There was much to read in the world of hockey this week, as “there was a real beehive of, uh, activity, Halberstam. This place was hot, very hot.”
If you can guess where that quote is from, you win a pat on the back. If you’re a suit and you don’t know this quote, SHAME ON YOU!
Anyway, Winnipeg has sold out all of their season tickets for at least the next three years. Atlanta eat your heart out. For more on that story check out the AP’s article over at ESPN. What the hell are they going to name that team? I just hope it’s not the Moose.
Inside Hockey has a great article questioning the strategy of acquiring UFA rights before the deadline and looks at the instances where things did and did not pan out. The article also looks at whether or not the signing team receives any sort of discount. Check it out here.
Finally, last and most certainly least. The kiddies over at Bleacher Report have an article entitled “The 7 Likely Destinations For Chris Drury.” One of the destinations is the Connecticut Whale? Apparently no one over there knows what a no-movement clause is. The main article also fails to suggest a buyout, which is really the only likely move for Chris Drury should the Rangers decide he’s not worthy of a roster spot.
Clearly this article emphasizes the word DUMP, in Sunday link dump. Booyah.
