The Saturday morning constitutional

This morning I thought I'd take a stroll through the blogroll and pass along some highlights:

JavaGeek over at Hockey Numbers has a team-by-team breakdown of on-ice pairings, detailing how much time each player is spending on the ice with his teammates, and a rating for positive or negative performance. Great stuff...

The Ice Block shows us a positive portrait of a retired NHL player in the popular Adam Graves. See, they're not all stick-swinging louts...

Speaking of Chris Simon, Hockey Dirt poses the question of whether a reported concussion sustained during the initial hit by Ryan Hollweg might provide a partial explanation for this week's incident.

Odd Man Rush makes a case for Colorado's Paul Stastny for the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year. Most of the early noise has been for Pittsburgh's dynamic diaper-dandy duo of Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal, but Stastny's steady production has slowly but surely brought him to prominence.

Sidearm Delivery boasts a gallery of hockey jerseys horrors. Whose idea was it to put a cow (with steaming pile behind him) on a hockey uniform?

Steph at No Pun Intended shares some on-ice singing by various NHL players. I don't think we'll see any of them doing the pre-game anthem anytime soon...

Mike Chen looks for the positive NHL possibilities resulting from the Chris Simon controversy. Just as Oscar Wilde wrote, "there is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about."

Joe Pelletier over at Legends of Hockey brings us up to date on Joe Juneau, rocket scientist.

The pic over at Battle of New York is sad and desperate. How can the fans in Pittsburgh possibly blame Mario Lemieux if that franchise moves? If it wasn't for #66, the Pens would have probably left town a decade ago.

Go ahead and take a few clicks around the blogosphere, and enjoy the weekend...
