Takes and trash talk from both ALL sides of the NHL's most obscure PATHETIC* rivalry

Thank you Pronger and Patton

Holy smokes! Hurry up and get your formalwear on. It's awards night!

While the NHL may have already tipped its hat as to who's winning its awards tonight (link credit: Japers'), I'm not talking about that award show. Instead, I've just been informed that today is also the day that We Bleed Teal presents its Bloggies Awards.

And wouldn't you know it? BoC took home the coveted "Battle of the Battles Battle" award! Woo hoo!

Earl Sleek's statistical prowess, Rudy Kelly's cut-to-the-chase ideals, PJ's timely analysis, and O'Brien's pop-culture references make BOC the best place (besides the Sunset Strip during the glam rock days) to be when you're touring the sun soaked West Coast.
Go read the whole thing, as several great blogs took home some hardware. Great job, Mr. Plank!

When you're done with that, you can also check out today's PuckToon, which offers a theory why Marc Crawford was fired this week. As always, alternate theories are welcome.

...Rudy Kelly's cut-to-the-chase ideals...

I don't know if I should be offended or proud, mostly because I don't know what that means.

...mostly because I don't know what that means.

"It means he gets results, you stupid chief!"

I didn't really answer your question, Rudy, but I thought it was high time I threw out my favorite Simpsons quote (Homer yelling at his TV during "McGarnicle").

I'll go with the theory I just invented and posted on LGK:

Lombardi canned Crawford so he could hire Tortorella, who in turn has pictures of Lightning GM Jay Feaster in compromising situations, which Lombardi will then be able to use to blackmail Feaster from drafting the top player in two weeks, so the Kings can steal Steve Stamkos with the second pick.

I like it! Let's see if Atlanta, with the third pick, signs Crawford for a similar ploy. I'm sure Crow's got some useful dirt on Lombardi; let's see how far down Stamkos can fall.
