Monday Morning Reading


What a weekend!  The greatness of the first round winding down.  Surely you’ve all been busy, but surely you’re not too busy for more coverage of hockey as The Rat Trick gives you the usual Monday tour around the NHL.

I know it’s alot of reading, but honestly, it’s all good stuff and this is the one hockey blog that you can come to for all the stories you aren’t getting. 


The Sedins have a new nickname.  Go to Daily Ducks Blog for all the in person description.

Wanna read about hockey from a players point of view.  Go to JT Bourne’s blog.  JT is a former player turned writer and a nice guy to top it off.  Here’s his great view on the “Too many men on the ice” issue that’s cramping the playoffs.  Read it.  It’s not good, it’s great.  Oh I said that already.  Well it is.

Inside Hockey Blogger Mathew DiBiase is doing a series of posts on coaches in the NHL.  Of course he did one on Mike Keenan.  Here it is.  There’s also one on Jacques Martin, but we all know the end result, so it’s up to you if you want to read it.

Thanks for reading.
