Your savory breakfast links:

  • Hockey held hostage, day forty- or fifty-something:
    • Nuclear Winter. Classic. [USA Today, NatPo]
    • Get your Sun Tzu on, owners. [CBC]
    • When/if this thing is ever settled, are you coming back? [Puck Daddy]
    • "Legacy. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." [St. Louis Today]
    • The thin red line: Let's talk attendance. There will be math. [Peerless]
    • No mediator as yet. They can't even agree to disagree. [ESPN]
  • Get ready for a lot of Adam Oates material over the next week or two as the Hockey Hall of Fame prepares the induction ceremonies. For starters, here's an interview from the NHL channel on XM. [@WashCaps (audio)]
  • Marcus Johansson made his Allsvenskan debut with BIK Karlskoga. No goals, no assists, minus-1. In their next game on Saturday, he will face Anze and Gasper Kopitar.
  • The ADORBS/60 meter actually broke under the intensity of Wojtek Wolski's master class for these teeny Polish hockey stars of tomorrow. [Facebook, with thanks to Reader B for the link]
  • Happy Movember! Karl Alzner and John Erskine want us to live vicariously through facial hair, and Tomas Kundratek wants to take you to Houlihan's. No really. He does. [WaPo, SHoE, RMNB]
    • But they are all going to have to work real hard to match up to Langway Comma Rod. [Backhand Shelf]
  • Checking in with Matt Bradley, werking it in Finland. [RMNB]
  • Oh hai there Brent Johnson, looking for what comes next. [Post-Gazette]
  • If you are wanting for a nice term-life policy, Ken Sabourin is your man. [@WashCaps]
  • They can see Russia from their rink: Joey Crabb, Brandon Dubinsky and Nate Thompson are the hired guns of the ECHL Alaska Aces, and they are road-tripping it to California this weekend. [Record Net]
  • Speaking of road trips, the Bears have started theirs, with stops in Springfield and Bridgeport:
  • Finally, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers are mindful of the terrible trauma caused by Hurricane Sandy. They have announced that both home games this weekend (including the Bears game) are free-of-charge for all. Well done, Kitties. [Sound Tigers, Puck Daddy]
