Happy Super Bowl Sunday, Sabre Noise readers!
You know, I’m a fan of the NFL, although not nearly as much as I am of the NHL. Still, I appreciate Super Bowl Sunday, in theory – I just wish the hype wouldn’t grow to be bigger than the game. See, it’s the opposite in the NHL – the battle for Lord Stanley’s Cup almost always provides us with entertainment, whereas the Super Bowl receives so much hype and build up it rarely can live up to the expectations.
America, you picked the wrong sport to go ga-ga over!
Anyway, I know I’m a little late today, but let’s see what is happening in the world of NHL hockey.
There’s only two games being played in the NHL today – lame. By the time you read this, they are probably both finished, so get your scores and highlights here. [NHL.com]
Bleacher Report lives and dies by their rankings and slideshows . . . so here’s another ranking of players, in slideshow format! This time, it’s the NHL’s top 10 power forwards. [b/r]
Speaking of rankings, check out this look at the NHL teams that make their fans the most miserable! [Sports Illustrated] That sounds like something we can all relate to here at Sabre Noise!
