Daily Pucking Grind. Heritage Roast. February 21

Today’s music selection is a brand new single from Radiohead-Lotus Flower.  Um, Tom Yorke seems to be quite the dancer.  I don’t think I have to be embarrassed anymore after that.

Happy President’s day all.  For some an off day, for others it’s business as usual and for some hockey players it’s games in the afternoon.  Was never a fan of afternoon games.  Throws everything off.  I’m sure the players don’t care for it either.  This afternoon the Florida Panthers visit the New York Islanders at 1:00 P.M.  Let’s not get all bent out of shape about Michael Grabner and the recent success he had.  I’ll admit he’s got talent, that’s why he was a first round pick, but the guys showed absolutely zero in training camp here.  Zero.

A brief pregame coming soon.  Your links after the jump.

Here’s your Monday links:

Rene Bourque was the hero in the Heritage Classic as the Calgary Flames beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-0.
