Fansided Friday Five

Have you met Everest yet?  He’s the Fansided Yeti that makes his appearance around the sites on a daily basis.  He is the model spokes “yeti” for Fansided.  He adorns the top of this page because he wants you to work for him.  Join the Fansided Sports Network and write about your favorite team.  Fansided has a site for every occasion, regardless of what sport you call your favorite.

As I am writing this, we could either be sitting in Lockout 2012 day 83 – or we could have an announcement that brings hockey back.  Either way our talented writers from around Fansided keep the faithful watch on the news bringing you the best in analytic opinions.

Here is one from our Minnesota Wild site, Gone Puck Wild.  Scott Drain takes a look at C.T.E. and the dangers in hits to the head and the long term effects it could have on a player.  It is an issue that never gets old – and deserves as much press and face time as possible.

While the Boston Bruins are my second most hated franchise in the NHL after the Philadelphia Flyers – our Bruins editor has a great hockey spin on a Christmas classic that is very appropriate if the NHL Lockout continues.

Hockey is, and forever will be, despite the bastardization that Bettman and Fehr are giving it, a game based on history and tradition.  Lockout 2012 is one of the worst moments in the sports collective history.  Lance Del Plato of Pucks and Pitchforks takes us back to One of Hockey’s Finer Moments.

I normally limit my Friday post to just five, and this was written a short time ago – but felt it fitting as to how the fan perceives the importance of the NHL playing the game.  I was on Long Island after the storm – it wasn’t pretty.

Recently Richard Matvichuk sat down with our staff over at Blackout Dallas – check out their interview with him here.

This a great post by the Anaheim Ducks team over at Ducks Daily – again, a little older (the post was written prior to federal mediators) but still appropriate given the state of things.
