  • So what happens to Extra Skater? Russian Machine wants to built a new one.
  • Bastion of hard work and virtue Alexei Kovalev thinks P.K. Subban doesn't deserve all the money he's making. OK, Alex. [Eyes on the Prize]
  • The Senators have had some wild game opening ceremonies, man. [On the Forecheck]
  • "Hey, we should sell hockey to the Japanese. They'll love it. Let's just send our two extremely shitty expansion teams over there for a couple of games. They won't know they're shitty." [Japers Rink]
