A comment on our latest Lubomir Visnovsky Ferrari test drive post exclaimed, in so many words, "For once I'd like to sign on to LHH and not have a heart attack."
While Lighthouse Hockey sadly offers no health plan nor casualty insurance, we can reasonably
bet hope this summer day will go without incident. No guarantees for tomorrow, however. Elsewhere in the dog days of hockey:
- Eyes on the Isles: Talking to Garth Snow about the offseason, and getting a chance for family time when the
day24/7 job is as an NHL GM.
- Nice Hockey Sverige article (Google Translate here) on "faithful striker" Johan Sundstrom and the lovely process of securing a visa.
- After the last lockout, Kenny Jonsson did not return. Would a lockout this year cost the Isles? (Personally, I think it would only help some of the kids' development with heightened AHL competition.)
Matt Moulson and one of his many hockey brothers-in-law do nice things.
- Slow-ish news: Michal Neuvirth quote about his teammate taken out of context. In the original (or original translation), a pledge that Part II will be even crazier.
CBA reading: An interesting argument for why things might be pointing to an inevitable end game. ... And a reminder about the 2004 lockout's pledge that "lower ticket prices" would result. ... Or oh, just be depressed already.
- Re-signings: Predators extend Mike Fisher for two years beyond next; Flyers extend Scott Hartnell for six years -- this after extending Wayne Simmonds for six too.
Now drive your sports cars carefully, ya hear.
