Hawks Hire Kompon


Well that should elicit no reaction whatsoever. The long, cold search for an assistant to get Q his coffee while Stan gives Q enough rope to hang himself is over, and it ends with Jamie Kompon. I have no idea if this is a good thing or not, neither do you, but he's a Q boy from St. Louis. So make of that what you will.

Hawks Hire Gauthier


I'm sure some will lose their mud over this, but seeing as how he's got the title of Director of Player Personnel, which is at best third in command and probably not even that, it's not that big of a deal. Gauthier got buried for hiring a non-French speaking coach in Montreal, which is probably something that should have happened long ago. He certainly made his mistakes, but he's also the one who chose Price over Halak, which looks pretty clever now, considering the defenses each has to play behind. Whatever. I'm tired of only having stuff to write about that can be covered in a Fanshot.

Free Agency Issue Of The Indian Delayed And Discount Running Out


Because not much has happened exactly, we're going to push back our free agency issue of The Indian until....well, there's something to talk about. I'm not doing 12 pages on Sheldon Brookbank alone, though it sounds like a great challenge. But our special discount price will expire on Wednesday as planned. So get in now.

Support the American Fallen Warrior Memorial


The conversation in the weekend thread reminded me of this. The American Fallen Warrior Memorial Foundation is looking to build a Gold Star Wall memorial in Kansas City, Kansas. This will honor fallen soldiers from the Gulf War to the present. You can donate to help fund building the memorial.

Torres' suspension reduced to 21 games.


I'm going to be sick. What a gutless move by the NHL. Another missed opportunity to send a message about headhunting. Fuckers.

Pelican Fans


I know Pelican is popular with the ToS and many others here, so thought I'd share this piece I just spotted on the Reader website. Enjoy.

Support Roskolnikov9 On Jeopardy!


Next time someone insults the intelligence of our readership, we can respond with, "Have you had a reader on Jeopardy? Because we have!" Anyway, Roskolnikov9, otherwise known as Jim Virtel and one of our most loyal readers, will be appearing on Jeopardy this Friday. Hit the link, and you can see him give a shout out to all of you. So if you're home on Friday afternoon, support our boy! He's been on the receiving end of too many headbutts from me, so if he loses it's my fault. Like everything else.
