The Bolts

  • In case you mixed the news on Thursday... There is a great disturbance in the Force. That and it's an excellent parody / upgraded of one of our t-shirts. [Gameday Depot]
  • Lightning 2010 4th round draft pick James Mullin, known to many (including the press) as Jimmy, will be playing his rookie season as a pro with the Bolts ECHL affiliate this season. [MLive]
  • "Roar of Thunder" continues its player series with one of the most celebrated captains in Tampa Bay Lightning team history: Dave Andreychuk. [Roar of Thunder]
  • The Creative Loafing "Best of the Bay" voting period for 2016 is almost over. Here's the link to our own coverage of the vote and one strong suggestion for your "Best Sportswriter" selection. [Raw Charge]

The NHL

  • A famous head coach walks away from his mile high job. There's a prime opportunity for a new head coach to the southwest of said mile high location... But no, no, Patrick Roy is not a fit for the Las Vegas expansion team. [The Sin Bin]
  • While Vegas is the open franchise, it's the Montreal Canadiens where he has the longest link... And of course the speculation is out there already that he will return to Le Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge. [Spector's Hockey]
  • The loss of Patrick Roy continues a trend in Colorado: Lacking direction for the organization. [SB Nation]
  • And... um, well? The story title alone here tying Roy to the word "coward" sets the tone for a blog covering the Avs... [Mile High Hockey]

The Sport

  • The captain of Team Sweden in the forthcoming World Cup of Hockey will be Henrik Zetterberg. [Wings Nation]
  • "I'm Arlis Michaels and I represent..." Pavel Datsyuk? Follow-up question: How many of you know of the show which is referenced here? Classic HBO... [Winging it in Motown]
