Warning: May Contain Nuts

Sandie has some totally fabricated travel excuse keeping her from doing her daily info dump for you ungrateful peons. I imagine she's in some horrific Canadian airport with efficient baggage handlers and security that makes eye contact as they give you the ol' "turn and cough." Whatever...

The naysayers are proven wrong again - Seth Jones wins (no ties in hockey!) another valuable pre-draft accolade:

The two players with the longest wingspans also were defensemen: Jonathan-Ismael Diaby of the Victoriaville Tigres and Seth Jones of the Portland Winterhawks, NHL Central Scouting's top-rated North American skater. Each measured in at 81.00 inches. London Knights defenseman Nikita Zadorov was next at 80.50 inches, along with Eamon McAdam, a goaltender with the Waterloo Black Hawks of the United States Hockey League.

The Union has named the players for this year's version of the Competition Committee:

The Union selected David Backes (St. Louis Blues), Cory Schneider (Vancouver Canucks), Michael Cammalleri (Calgary Flames), Ron Hainsey (Winnipeg Jets) and Alex Pietrangelo (St. Louis Blues).

Mathieu Schneider, the NHLPA’s Special Assistant to the Executive Director, will chair the meeting, the Union said.

Not sure how much competition is going to be involved with all the Canucks, Flames, and Jets on the panel though.

Watch in awe as man's man Sidney Crosby masterfully picks a fight with a goalie then does the "There's somebody between me and you or I'd start some shit" dance with Chara. Truly a master of body positioning to keep a ref or teammate between him and the Slovokian mutant at all times.
