Oh, the Pheonix Coyotes always find a way to be a relevant franchise even when they are most irrevelant.  Does Shane Doan regret sticking with the team that stuck with him?  He might be adding his third NHL team without a trade or a free agency move, which has to be an NHL record.

Is it fair to the fans of the National Hockey League that the league is preparing to move a team again?  Maybe we should start looking at hockey markets instead of new markets when we are  moving struggling franchises.  Another reason not to spend anymore money on the NHL.  Could Seattle be the new Pheonix? [CauseWay Crowd].

Do the Buffalo Sabres really intend to make this a long and drawn out rebuilding process by ignoring free agency?  That doesn’t really make a lot of sense when you are trying to attract big names to make this a destination in the hockey world.  Who then can the Buffalo Sabres target while still being a fresh new team that is going to bring excitement to First Niagara Center?  [WGR550].

Do you really have to fault Brandon Bollig for your Game Two fumblings Chicago?  Don’t get me wrong – I am rooting for you in this series – but if you expected the Boston Bruins to roll over Pittsburgh Penguins style in the Stanley Cup Finals – you are sadly mistaken.  You have too much star power on your team to blame a Dan Paille goal on a guy who played 8 minutes and 42 seconds in a game that spanned almost 75 minutes.  How about placing a little bit of blame on the star players who were on the ice for a significant amount of time.  Where was Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa?  But sure, it was Bollig’s fault you looked like the Bad News Bears and the Boston Bruins rolled right over you.  [Chicago Tribune].

Someone from Britain won the US Open for the first time since 1970?  Congratulations on holding on for victory Justin Rose.  [Boston Globe].

Did I mention the Chicago Blackhawks let the Boston Bruins own them in Game 2?  Heading back to Boston the Bruins have all the momentum.  [Fox News].

The Era of the Superstar over?  I don’t think so – there are plenty of teams around the league who would want to build around more than a few pieces of the Boston Bruins teams.  Maybe its just a “team” in Boston – and not one guy carrying the load.  [Christian Science Monitor].  {Ok – the source of that one should have given any reason to believe the author wasn’t going to know what he was talking about}.
