Hi everybody! It's annoying Leafs person.
WAIT! Wait... This isn't a Leafs blog.
The Nation Network overlord people thought it would be fun for me to try a weekly nation-wide post. I told them that I don't get nearly enough hate on the Sportsnet Facebook page so that sounds like a great idea.
Here's a few things I thought were noteworthy this week.

Whether you watch the games, look at the stats page, or combine both, it is safe to say all of us usually miss many things in each game. We can't pick up everything watching the game live, and we can look at various stats afterwards, but they too don't tell us everything.
It's what makes hockey debates so enjoyable or intense, because there is often more to the story.

There’s not a lot of room left on the marquee when you’ve got stars named Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Glenn Anderson and Paul Coffey hogging the spotlight the way they did with the Edmonton Oilers in the early 1980s on the way to Hockey Hall of Fame careers. Don Jackson was always fine with that. Singers sing, dancers dance. Everybody has a job to do.

After losing three games in a row, the Oilers appear to be bringing out the line blender.
