Re: Canadian Media Loves Atlanta. Darren Dreger recently posted one of those "Top 10 Players to Watch at the Deadline" things that get so popular 'round this time of year. The usual suspects: Tkachuk, Bouwmeester, the Toronto Maples Leafs...
...and Colby Armstrong?
C'mon, Dreg... seriously? He says:
"[Pittsburgh] would like to see him reunited with Penguins captain Sidney Crosby."Um, so they can hang out on the weekends? I don't recall Army getting a ton of top line minutes in the 'burgh. I mean, at least make it plausible. Like: "The Pens would really like to have more guys to slam into Colton Orr during Ranger games."
Re: Great Diplomats - Roosevelt, Churchill, Kovalchuk...
First, we had the Malkin-Ovechkin Accords of 2009. Then we had high praise from one of them Kostitsyn boys. Now I find this thought running through my head: What kind of effect could Kovy now have on bringing Illya Nikulin into the fold? Hmmm...
(Yes, that bullet point was just an excuse to post that sweet 'shop.)

Re: The Isles Tonight. The frontrunners for the John Tavares Sweepstakes (i.e. "Yet Another Chance to Prove the Islanders Should Be Relocated Before the Thrashers") are in Phillips tonight. Lets review the checklist:
___ Move legs
___ Hit people
___ Shoot puck
Some (if not all) of these tricks may work against the Islanders.
But you gotta show up.
