A Few Quick Ones

- Via Rawhide, we learn that Patrik Stefan has been sighted working as an agent in Laguna Beach:

"Obviously, when I look back at my career, am I happy with it? No, I'm not," said Stefan.

Cruelty aside, I'm glad the still-quite-young Mr. Stefan has found a way to stay attached to the sport without playing it. Perhaps his NHL career was just a way station on the road to NHL player agent, the job he was born to do...

Okay, let's watch it again:



Ray Ferraro is the best part.

- Meanwhile, somebody at Kukla's Korner has unearthed this:

Unreal.

- This dude from the Montreal Gazette says that the Habs aren't experiencing a bad stretch or a slump so much as a full-scale collapse. As Rawhide points out, the Canadiens are barely clinging to the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference. Could the Thrashers be the final nail (or at least one of the final nails) in their coffin tomorrow night? How sad will it be if the Habs miss the playoffs in their great big "We've Been Around for 100 Years" season?

- Monsieur Catalogues is a big fan of Thrashers prospect Paul Postma, and he's introduced me to the following piece of information: The kid is a completely insane offensive defenseman at the WHL level. 23 goals and 61 assists in 70 games this season. Perhaps he'll be able to translate that to NHL success one of these days, probably by the time most hockey fans acknowledge Tobias Enstrom and Zach Bogosian as elite defensemen and Ron Hainsey as the greatest athlete, in any sport, of all time.

Hockey players of the future will have lightsabers?

Sold.

Where can I put down a season ticket deposit for the Melbourne Dingoes?

Whoever did that artwork deserves 5 minutes of extra recess time.

I don't think we'll ever mention the words "Atlanta Thrashers defenseman" and "Norris Trophy winner" in the same sentence.

I'm excited about Postma too but keep those expectations down to earth. His entire team is just destroying the WHL this year. He's also super skinny and will need to put some muscle on that big frame to play in the NHL.
