Good enough?

A big ol' links stew:

  • That leaky PK needs to be fixed in a hurry. Again. [Islanders Insight]
  • Goalie prospect Stephon Williams is having a heck of a year for Minnesota State. [Islanders Insight. Includes other prospect notes as well]
  • Lukas Sutter brings some of that family feistiness to the Sound Tigers. [CT Post]
  • Other Bridgeport notes including the return of Colin McDonald. [Soundin' Off]
  • A heartfelt open letter to Al Arbour from Anatoliy Metter of The Hockey Writers.
  • A very interesting look at how goaltending is shaping the Metro Division. The answers might surprise you. [Hockey Prospectus]
  • In Lou We Trust's weekly Metro Division snapshot and look-ahead. I'm not sure what's less likely to happen: The Islanders getting Jaromir Jagr for a sixth round pick or the Devils getting Joshua Ho-Sang and a 2016 first rounder for a Jagr rental. Take a deep breath, everyone.
  • Michael Dal Colle scored his 30th goal of the season, but the Generals lost to Kingston in the shootout. Oshawa has dropped four in a row and four of their 11 losses this season are to Kingston. [Durham Region]

What else?

  • There was hockey at the Super Bowl. Sort of. [Puck Daddy]
  • Playing for a historically bad team is difficult, but covering one as a reporter is no picnic, either. [@JoeYerdon at Gross Misconduct]
  • Pension Plan Puppets calls for this Leafs roster to get blowed up like the Seahawks' final drive.
