In today’s medley of notable posts from the NHL blogosphere: Unveiling the Flyers Winter Classic Jersey…A look at the Blackhawks at the quarter pole…The goalie madness in Columbus…Introducing the new owner of the Dallas Stars…This week’s Absurd Goalie Monday highlights a goaltending pioneer.


Relax, Flyers fans. Your team's Winter Classic Jersey won't look like this!

BROAD STREET HOCKEY: The Flyers today officially revealed their jersey for this season’s Winter Classic. Pay no attention to the fact it was leaked weeks ago!

SECOND CITY HOCKEY: Rates the Chicago Blackhawks at this season’s quarter mark; specifically, MVP, Biggest Surprise and Biggest Disappointment. Test your knowledge by having a guess before checking out the results.

THE CANNON: Highlights the ongoing goaltending madness with the Columbus Blue Jackets this season.

SPECTOR’S NOTE:  I really feel for the fans of the Blue Jackets, they deserve a helluva lot better than the stinkburger that’s been served up to them this season. 

DEFENDING BIG D: Introducing the new owner of the Dallas Stars, Tom Gaglardi, who addresses several topics, including player personnel decisions and player payroll. Spoiler Alert: The personnel decisions will be left up to GM Joe Nieuwendyk and his management team, and the purse strings should loosen in the near future.

THE STRANGEST ONE OF ALL: Scotty Wazz with his regular “Absurd Goalie Monday” segment. This week: Denis DeJordy, who, following his playing career, became the first goalie coach in NHL history.
