It's been an awfully good month for Martin Marincin. Just over 30 days ago, on December 5, he played in his first NHL game. Today he learned he was going to the Olympics as part of Team Slovakia.

Listening to some Oilers fans and pundits it sounds like Taylor Hall is a complete failure as a player, and any mention of him for the Olympic team is laughable.
I don't expect Hall to make the team, because the hockey world is infatuated with "safe" players, and a turnover is criticized 10x more than a great play, but mainly because Canada has a lot of depth.
However, I believe it is time for some clarity regarding Hall's game.

Dean Blundell, the Toronto-based shock jock who has made a living by being a terrible human being on-air, had his show cancelled on Monday. Edmonton Oilers fans will remember Blundell as the guy who found the death of prospect Kristians Pelss so funny last summer.
