The Week In Hockey Blogging

Note: It's the return of The Week In Hockey Blogging. By popular demand (that would be the statistics of exit links clicked via good ol' StatCounter), I'm bringing this back to a best-of-the-week link dump format. Enjoy!

If you haven't seen it, Puck Daddy had the must-see/hear interview of the week by talking to Theo Fleury. Go now.

Puck Worlds' Bruce Peter (AKA Saskhab) suggests a little street hockey for the kids before going to a game.

Mike Brodeur or Martin Brodeur -- stats heads want to know!

What happens when agents bitch about your ice time? Why, you get the Martin Havlat saga!

You want old-school rivalries? How about a bloody Montreal Canadiens/New York Rangers battle circa 1947?

Those Edmonton Oilers might be young and plucky but they're not the Chicago Blackhawks.

Jewels From The Crown takes a look at the New Jersey Devils from an outside perspective -- outside, as in the jilted-but-probably-happy-now lover in the Ilya Kovalchuk fiasco.

Speaking of Kovalchuk, music pals Blueland Chronicle take in the battle of ex-Atlanta Thrashers/ex-New Jersey Devils and have a chuckle.

Finally, you've probably noticed the SBN hockey network had a lot of posts about enhancing the fan experience this week. Complete disclosure -- Samsung sponsored the theme, though SBN writers were given free reign to write about whatever the heck they wanted about. Our pal Bob Wage at Canes Country summed it up and you can see that it's quite a range of ideas.

This week's soundtrack:
Monday: King by Belly
Tuesday: Hard To Explain by The Strokes
Wednesday: Wake Up by Arcade Fire/David Bowie
Thursday: Gameday lost in cyberspace
Friday: Misery Is A Butterfly by Blonde Redhead
Weekend: The Way That I Found You by Ladytron
