Your savory breakfast links:

  • Czech, please:
  • Do these exchanges mean the unity armor worn by the union and the owners is starting to show some cracks? Maybe. And maybe that's a good thing. [PHT]
  • Happy Nicklas Backstrom Day! He's turning 25.
    • Dynamo Moscow is playing at home against Severstal. Perhaps Mean Lars will score the OT gamewinner.
    • Heja Sverige! Bäckis has confirmed he will play for Tre Kronor in the Channel One Cup portion of the Euro Tour hockey tournament, to be held in Moscow December 13-16. That is, if he doesn't have other, more pressing business at the Verizon Center. [dn.se]
    • CBS Sports is counting down the top 50 players "in" the NHL. Himself is #99 #69 #19 #14. [Eye on Hockey]
    • Appreciatin'. [What's Up, Ya Sieve]
  • A hazard of playing lockout hockey in Poland - dodging airborne chocolate bars. Wojtek Wolski reflects on what it means to play in and for his native land. [IIHF, Canoe.ca]
  • Filip Forsberg says his hip is improving, he's back to light training for Leksand, and he will definitely be ready to play for Sweden at the WJCs. [Hockey Sverige]
  • Finally, doin' good in the 'hood. [Hockey Shopped]
