How much of a role does sleep play in a hockey player's effectiveness? Found this intriguing video from Schoolyard Puck. Don't be scared off by the Canucks focus, there are many Nuckfails to make it worth it.
Found this through a news site. The guy with the frisbee is Brodie Smith and they are in the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec. Nice touch with the Nordique jerseys.
I'm sure this has been posted somewhere around these parts, but I think it's worthy of the front page. Matt Duchene practiced in a no-contact jersey today. Here's a video from Adrian Dater via his DP blog.
Hey guys, just finished working on this a few days ago, and wanted to share with you all here. Nothing hockey related, but since you're all pretty cool people anyway, I thought I'd spread some holiday wishes.
Kevin Porter gets Shanabanned for FOUR games for the knee he laid on David Booth. Explanation Video The video shows a really cringe inducing freeze frame of the moment of impact. All said, I still think it was a poorly executed shoulder check that Porter was out of position on. Before the Shanahammer was brought down with great vengeance and furious anger, he mentioned that Porter's completely clean career was taken into account. Four games for an unintentional knee is leniency. Yeesh.
