...Irene, now. I could write something new and original and funny, but with time short as the STORM OF THE MUTHAPUCKIN SEN-CHUR-EEEE bears down on us, just cross out "Earl" and insert "Irene".

McQuaid may have a mullet, Timmy the stache, and Tuukka the swagger, but nobody, and I mean nobody, pulled it all together like Derek Sanderson. Someone else may be able to enlighten me on who the other two gentlemen are. From a Boston.com gallery of the coolest athletes in Boston history.

So, in case you weren't at the fantastic DVD viewing party tonight, then here is the major revelation: Chris Kelly looks like Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park. Check it out, it's a little creepy.

Yup, this is the actual Winnipeg Jets logo. The secondary and wordmarks are here. It's so heavy handed in it's simplicity that it looks like an Icethetics/Puck Drawn concept more than an actual NHL logo. I don't know that I hate it but it's not what I was expecting.

Yes, son, that's a Bruins logo on a NASCAR Nationwide Series (think AHL) car. Boychuk at an IndyCar race, the B's in NASCAR...I just need the Bear on a Monster Truck for true hockey/racing nirvana. Image courtesy of NESN.

Kathryn Tappen leaving NESN for NHL Network?

5

This is a much larger story about NESN and CSNNE's ongoing war, but one tidbit on the 3rd page says that we could be just weeks away from Tappen leaving Boston for the national stage. Initial thoughts: good for her and great for the NHL Network, since her tenor and delivery is exactly what they desperately need, but man, the local broadcast is going to take a hit.

New AHL alignment and playoff structure

1

From the playoff standpoint, it's identical to the NHL system save for the best of 5 opening round. The divisions themselves are largely self-explanatory, but you'd think they'd have switched Charlotte and Abbotsford. Interesting that NY teams are in 3 divisions among both conferences!

Does a banner year leave the Bruins with a banner conundrum?

So by this point, what with all the photoshops and jersey concepts and whatnot, you might have figured out that I am just ever so slightly fascinated with the aesthetics of hockey.  So, after the B...

For Corny.

This is the way the Thrashers end. Not with a bang, but a whimper.

No "11 Great Seasons." No "Thank You Fans." Not even a "1999-2011." It all seems so cold. We will miss you, Thrashers. And Thrasher fans, we stand by you, for you deserve better than this.

Tuukka Rask is a pimp. He's also totally smashed.

Dear Atlanta

I must admit, I have been to your city twice, and I didn't really like it.  Good areas turn into bad areas, and vice-versa, in the span of a block.  Traffic sucks.  The Metro is too confusing and...

Which Bruin are you?

Straight from the pages of Tiger Beat, a, like, totally awesome quizzy thing from the Globe. Which dreamy Boston Bruin are you? I got Rex.

During the Bruins' Lake Placid retreat, they gave a tryout to local Buford Luke Ray "Bubba" Thomas, a gritty center and truck driver known for grinding, and then taking home the girls he grinds with. GM Peter Chiarelli was a little disconcerted by Bubba's downing a Natural Ice after every shift, but was otherwise impressed by his stickhandling and agitating skills. He's been signed to a tryout contract and will be with the Black Aces for the remainder of the playoffs. Photo courtesy Boston.com.

Sounds odd to say this, but when are we gonna get some praise for Milan Lucic?

There was a time last year, if you can believe it, when it seemed like Milan Lucic was never going to be the same.  The rookie sensation who had captured the hearts of Bruins fans was a long...

It's time to send Patrice Bergeron to the All-Star Game

Right now, the list of players who have dropped out of the All-Star Game is pretty impressive: Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Ales Hemsky, Jordan Eberle, Tobias Enstrom...it's looking more and more...

It's Festivus, so here's an Airing of Hockey Grievances

NESN (via this blog) has this incredible photo of a model of a 1964 proposal for a domed stadium and arena by South Station and the Fort Point Channel, not far, coincidentally, from where the 1990's sports megaplex proposals were to be located. The reason Fenway and the Garden weren't abandoned? The Bruins, who have long owned the Garden, were not pleased with the idea of paying the Commonwealth rent when they got plenty of profits at North Station. So thank you, Bruins, for stopping this monstrosity from occuring.

Marc Savard, in Scott Burnside's tremendous ESPN article on his recovery. A must read.

Sadly, this time it's true: former Bruins coach Pat Burns has passed.

Burns won the Adams with the B's in 1997-98. A truly sad day in hockey.
