Nice tie, Ed.

Not that we lacked for news to discuss yesterday, but last night was the first night of the playoffs without hockey, and that gives me a sad. Friday will be another.

Worse for me? I'll be visiting in-laws tonight who still somehow do not have Versus, which means while I feign interest in Aunt Henrieta's surgery, I'll really be wondering about a historic Game 7.

A trove of New Coliseum links, and hockey links, after the jump.

New Coliseum Links

LHH: Our post-announcement discussion thread here, our pre-announcement speculation and live reaction thread there, and garik16's FanPost about what opposition will be looking at here.

Among the lingering questions from yesterday's presser about the new Coliseum plan: What studies/data indicates the "shared revenues" can pay off the bonds? Also, was it odd to anyone else that there was no architectural drawing, the way there often is with a big unveiling? It's enough to make me wonder what political factors are behind the timing and the details.

Anyway, on that note:

Lot to digest. May we all get what we want. And enjoy Game 7.
