The Hockey News writers just ranked Calgary's flaming C logo as #19 on their NHL logo countdown. Personally, I would rank Calgary's logo in the top 10. Man, the comments section over there is almost as bad as tsn. Trying to read through and find any sensible comments is an exercise in futility.

For those who have some time to kill: http://www.nhltradetracker.com It was pretty funny going through Sam Pollock's trade history and seeing how he absolutely fleeced other teams' GMs around the league.

I'm not saying that it wasn't interesting, I think it was a great move by Shanahan to bring in a bright young guy with an analytics background. Seems like pretty good foresight in the modern NHL, especially for the Leafs who have a history of lagging behind the rest of the league. My point is that our national broadcasting networks carry on with a leaf bias and tend to focus their resources more on them, when their are plenty of other interesting teams around the league too. I'm not bothered by it, I find it more comical than anything else. Well, I wouldn't expect Leaf fans to want more Leaf stories in the Gazette, just like I wouldn't expect to see a lot Habs stories in the Toronto Sun. Seems kind of silly to think otherwise.

Jesus! I go to sportsnet this morning and there are at least 5 articles written by different "insiders" on the website about the leafs new assistant gm hiring. I guess with rogers getting the NHL rights over tsn, it's gonna be more of the same leaf loving...

The Hockey Sweater by Roch Carrier!!! The Wheel of Time series is an all time favourite of mine. A Song of Ice and Fire is also fantastic. Recently I've been reading a lot of Brandon Sanderson. If you're into the fantasy genre like myself, then I would definitely recommend the Mistborn series, or The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance.
