NHL Daily Dasherboard January 26, 2014

Morning, NHL fans!

You know how I normally have something interesting to say before I share the day’s links with all of you?  Would you believe that today I have nothing to really use as a lead-in for this post?  You would think that with all of the things that are going on in the NHL, I could find something to talk about.

Congratulations, Gary Bettman: you have sent me into a state of sensory overload so deep I cannot form new thoughts!

Good thing it doesn’t take much thought to serve up this plate of links for you all!

There were so many games in the NHL last night I think I lost count.  Get your bad selves caught up here!  [NHL.com]

Here’s a candidate for goal of the year, courtesy of Alex Ovechkin. [NHL]

Here’s a link that seems a bit un-timely: are enforcers still valuable in today’s NHL?  [Bleacher Report]

You know who likes hockey?  The King!  No, not Elvis Presley – look go see for yourself which king is going to be hitting the ice soon.  [Puck Daddy]

And your Buffalo Sabres link of the day gives you some insight as to why new GM Tim Murray is in no hurry to start selling parts.  {The Buffalo News]

    Hey Rich…hate to keep you honest, but in the Fan Picks you stated ( category 5) that the player with the most points ( CoHo) was worth +6. You gave Dano, WolfDoctor and myself +7. While I appreciate the extra point, I don’t think it’s fair to the other players when there is a prize up for grabs ;)
    What was your catch phrase again ? Lol

      Yes sir, too many pans in the fire! I have decided I’mg going to hand write all of the categories and points, so I don’t have to keep scrolling up to see what is what. I’ll leave the totals as they were, since Darius crushed everyone regardless.
