Interesting “What if?” scenario: Curtis Joseph implies he might have been willing to play for the Pittsburgh Penguins if Mario Lemieux asked. Instead, he ended up working for the Phoenix Coyotes, who then employed Wayne Gretzky. Interesting. (Prince Albert Daily Herald via Kukla’s Korner)

A critical look at sometimes-polarizing Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs. (Stanley Cup of Chowder)
