NHL Daily Dasherboard December 6, 2013

Welcome to Friday, everyone!

Another work week has come and is nearly gone, pushing us deeper into the holiday season.  It truly is a joyous time of the year . . . unless you’re wishing for a Christmas miracle when it comes to the Buffalo Sabres, because that ain’t gonna happen!

But you probably knew that already.  Ah, it is what it is . . . and what it is time for is, today’s links!

There was a metric ton worth of games last night in the NHL – better get caught up quickly!  [TSN]

Get your weekly dose of Kerry Fraser with his “Hey, Ref!” column.  [TSN]  Love it.

In case you were wondering, here’s a compilation of the dirtiest hits of the season so far.  [Bleacher Report]

Rob Vollman is a great resource that any fan of statistical analysis should be consulting on a regular basis.  In this piece, he breaks down which NHL teams are the best at protecting leads this year.  [b/r]  Clearly, the Sabres are not on this list – because they never have a lead to protect!!!

Johnny Boychuk of the Boston Bruins had to be taken off the ice last night on a stretcher.  Watch the play, and decide whether Max Pacioretty should be suspended for the hit.  [The Hockey News]

Sometimes, I come across articles so wild and incredibly laughable, I just have to share them.  This piece, which asks whether a Nathan MacKinnon for P.K. Subban trade is worth considering, is one such example.  [Hockey Buzz]

Finally, your Buffalo Sabres-specific piece: with this team a total mess, which ex-player would you most want back in the 716?  [Die By The Blade]

I’m out!
