Hitting The Links: It's Turco Time Edition

Okay, so "Turco Time" almost rolls off the tongue as nicely as "Tuukka Time" does, but it comes with a distinct bitter taste. Tuukka Rask is out for 4-6 weeks, and the Bruins have signed professional troll Marty Turco to a one-year deal.

Turco is not eligible for NHL playoffs, since he signed after the trade deadline. Oh, but how far away are the playoffs? 4-6 weeks! Convenient. Just enough time for Rask to get back or for Anton Khudobin, who is also sidelined for 3-4 weeks, to heal and hop in instead of Turco.

After the jump, the Leafs are out of shape, Rod Stewart's son is a WHL player, and some other crap.
