Fresh Links: Birthday Edition

Martin Rose

Happy birthday to Ted Lindsay, Pete Conacher, and Tye McGinn! It's an honor to share my natal day with you fine fellows. Let's have some links to celebrate!

  • Many Bruins are on the road to Sochi! Still! Some more! [isportsweb]
  • A great piece in "anchoring bias", or why some players seem to become a team's goat in the eyes of fans (aka people who started hating on Chara after the Final) [thescore]
  • Given that, it will be interesting to see where Chara falls on the list that comes out of the research on shut-down defensemen of the past season. [Pension Plan Puppets]
  • Erstwhile Bruin Blake Wheeler got paid, yo, and what does that tell us about that state of big contracts. [Puck Daddy]
  • Erstwhile Bruin Andrew Ference has been working hard for the money. [vine]
  • A look at the youngest player invited to B's development camp, Wiley Sherman, [Bruins.nhl.com]
Non-Bruins related fun facts:
  • Nathan Walker, everyone's favorite Australian hockey player, has been invited to Caps camp as a free agent! [The Younstown Vindicator]
  • Did you know that melted ice is water? And that you can sell it? Yup. [Blackhawks.com]
  • And who is the best free agent goalie not playing in the NHL these days, anyway? [HockeyBuzz]
