Apparently, Tocc’s signing as head coach is imminent, though the arsenal of stall tactics Brian Lawton has employed to delay this "formality" rival those used by the writers of 24. Kinda makes you wonder if Lawton’s going to drag this one out through the second round of Stanley Cup playoffs just to see who else might be available for the job.

St. Louis Named Lady Byng Finalist

+

The question that always comes to mind when thinking of the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy is this - is it a compliment or an insult for a hockey player to be nominated and/or win this award?

JoeBoltsFan -- "Brian Lawton Speaks"

+

AM Radio wunderblog JoeBoltsFan has the audio of Brian Lawton's appearance on Toronto based AM Radio speaking about the draft and the prospect of trading a certain team captain. The declaration that the Lightning are in an excellent position to get offers for the #2 pick or Lecavalier isn't the double-speak that one might read into the statement. It's stating a fact: you may have no intention at all of trading either or, but you're in prime position to have everyone throw offers at you regarding the wares that you have.
