The Week in Hockey Blogging

Every Sunday, FTR will go back and visit some of the best posts across the hockey blogosphere from the previous week.

-Catch the archive of Rink Side Radio's debut. New show on Monday night!

-Travis Hughes from Broad Street Hockey wrote a touching piece on the tragic loss of Brendan Burke, son of Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke.

-Did you hear Ilya Kovalchuk got traded this week? Bird Watchers Anonymous examines the absurdity before the trade went down, including where Kovy had for breakfast and how that might have affected things.

-Olli Jokinen's wife doesn't like Puck Daddy one bit and advises Greg Wyshynski to change his job.

-Patrick Marleau Facts: Chuck Norris once tried to smile like Patrick Marleau but it broke his face.

-Hockey history blogger Joe Pelletier has been profiling every Olympic hockey tournament in history. Did you know hockey started in the Summer Olympics? Or that Vancouver almost hosted the 1976 Games? Or that the Olympics were open to NHL players in 1988?

-You have to be pretty bad to be a team's worst draft pick of the decade. Congrats, Marek Zagrapan.

-Florida Panther fans are so over Olli Jokinen.

-Yes, there's life outside of hockey...and some guys are much braver than others. Former St. Louis goalie Ed Staniowski is a perfect example of this.

-And finally, Versus is planning a nightly news and entertainment show. Don't worry, no signs of Jay Leno around.
