I've got to admit. I didn't know about Willie as an announcer at first but I think his announcing (especially his goal calling) and overall takes have greatly improved.

Around the World of Hockey

The two acts of NHL violence that actually get you in trouble | New York Post
The classic case of dumb and dumber here. One guy thinks it's a good idea to slash a ref and the other is perfectly fine spearing his opponent in the face. Ah testosterone...

Crosby cracks NHL milestone with 1,000th point | Yahoo

You've gotta feel bad for Maatta. It just seems like one thing after another with him.

It's really interesting all of the NHL goalie scouts like Hutton.

Antoine Vermette's 10-game suspension is a complicated thing, but will be reduced | ESPN
Antoine Vermette crossed the line by slashing a linesman, but it's likely that after he appeals his 10-game suspension, it will be reduced because of his relatively clean record. The Nyquist and Vermette rulings show how backwards the NHL's outlook on dangerous plays is.

What a rental player should cost at the NHL trade deadline |
The problem is that the seller always has the leverage.

Capitals' Jakub Vrana: Gets call-up to NHL |
