The weekend is upon us. Here’s some of what’s been going on in the ‘sphere and beyond.
What’s in the goodie bag?
Josh Rimer/NSS Radio TV- Interview with Zenon Konopka: Josh Rimer grabs Minnesota Wild forward Zenon Konopka and talks about the L word. Konopka says that there’s reason to be concerned, but there’s still a good amount of time to get a deal hammered out if both sides can work together. Interview starts just after the 35:00 minute mark.
Jesse Spector / Say Hello To The Real ‘New NHL’, and NHL2: Could relegation work in the NHL? Jesse Spector puts out a blueprint that looks good on paper.
RealOilFan / Contracts, Training Camp and a Season That May Not Happen: Grant is a season ticket holder, and like many of us would very much like to see some hockey. Sooner than later. Really, sooner.
Dmitry Chesnokov (Puck Daddy) / How KHL’s Lokomotiv was reborn, one year after plane crash tragedy: Dmitry Chesnokov takes a look back at a day that none of us will ever forget, and how Lokomotiv was reborn.
Artful Puck – OKC Barons’ Bill Scott – Hockey In Oklahoma: Artful Puck has a chat with Barons GM Bill Scott on life in the OKC and how much hockey has grown since the Barons have arrived.
Tend The Farm (NEAL!) – AHL on NBC? Maybe If the league doesn’t work out a deal, could the AHL and NBC work out a deal? It could be more likely than you think.
Oilers Nation / Lowetide : Hurry Sundown, Come On Winter - “Hockey is part of the fabric, like beer, Jill Hennessy, blue jeans and donair”.
The world lost Joe South this week. Joe South had a pretty good streak of hits (for himself and others) in the 60s and 70s.
Here’s one he wrote for Billy Joe Royal in 1967 that would later become a hit for Deep Purple in ’68.
