Fresh Links: Substitute Teacher (Well, Sort Of) Edition

New, comments

I'm filling in for Fresh Links today. Giesse is on a plane, or at an airport - I dunno, it has something to do with air travel - and everyone else is buried under the snow.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

  • John Tomase and his John C. Reilly haircut give us a brief rundown on what makes, in his opinion, the Tyler Seguin trade one of the worst in Bruins, if not NHL, history. [WEEI]
  • Done reading the Tomase piece?  Okay, well put your glasses back on, because here's a view from the opposite of the trade spectrum, cautioning that there isn't a clear winner or loser just yet. [Boston Herald]
  • The Bruins are far too old, "heavy-legged" Zdeno Chara is breaking down and, apparently, the Bruins can land Cody Franson for draft picks? At least that's what some bozo thinks. [Sports Illustrated]
  • Most likely you've already seen this, but if not, it should be noted that everyone's favorite backup Swedish goaltender has returned from his conditioning stint in Providence. [NHL]
  • Good luck getting to the game tonight - the MBTA has suspended subway and rail service for Tuesday, which is today. Today is Tuesday! [NESN]
  • Former P-Bruins forward Nathan Robinson has inked a contract to finish 2014-2015 with the Belfast Giants of England's Elite Ice Hockey League. Robinson suited up for 2 games with the varsity B's in 2005-2006. [Belfast Giants]
  • Zach Kassian? Chris Stewart? MICHAEL FREAKIN' RYDER?!?!?!? Well, it appears these dummies are on the Bruins radar. [Headlines and Global News]
  • Do you shop at Trucchi's? Well, my grandparents do, so here's a link to the weekly circular because fuck it I can't find anything else to put for Bruins-related links. [Trucchi's]
  • My mother is a musician. One of her songs, Diamond Day, will be featured on The Young and the Restless today. If you're like me, and hopefully the rest of society, and can't stand soap operas, you can download the song from iTunes. [iTunes]
  • We're getting another blizzard. Prepare to be depressed Thursday night into Friday! [AccuWeather]
ELSEWHERE AROUND THE RINK/WORLD:
  • Arizona State will be playing D1 hockey and some guy from Sports Illustrated wants you to know his opinion on the matter! [Sports Illustrated]
  • Blue Jackets defenseman Ryan Murray is hurt, again. Six weeks for the Regina, Saskatchewan native. [ESPN]
  • Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn didn't do the Dallas Stars PR staff any favors with their comments regarding the Sedin twins. [TSN Vancouver 1040/1410]
  • D2: The Mighty Ducks makes absolutely no sense. [The Chive]
  • The new Spongebob Movie had an impressive opening weekend at the box office. I would have gone but I'm an adult without kids and that wouldn't give people the greatest impression. [USA Today]
  • Today is "safer internet day", so instead of linking you to a Scooby-Doo parody porn that my friend Billy showed everyone on our baseball team six years ago, here is a website dedicated to adorable puppies! [Tumblr]
  • Hockey players work out in gyms. Here is a story related to gyms, and collecting sticks. [David Thorne]
Okay. Hopefully I never have to fill in again, not because I didn't enjoy it, but there's not a lot of substance here right now, and that's on me. If you're going to the game tonight, travel safe and report any Yeti sightings to the authorities. Remember, foul balls hit into the stands can be dangerous.
