No article here but how could we not link to Rick “Insert nickname about his fragility here” DiPietro getting embarrassed by Brent Johnson. On a similar note, Columbus Blue Jackets’ netminders Steve Mason and Mathieu Garon discuss goalie fights over with The Columbus Dispatch. Think Brent Johnson throws a mean left hook, check out this classic courtesy of the infamous Dan Cloutier.

Three fights and a goal in 35 seconds. Wow.
Last week Tyler Seguin turned 19. After 50 NHL games and 17 points, Matt Kalman of The Bruins Blog offers an unique perspective regarding his development. Clearly I have never understood why Seguin ever compared to Taylor Hall at the draft or in his progression, but he seems like a nice, two-way player.
Sorry Devils Fans, your season is over. Timo Seppa at Puck Prospectus puts the final nail in the coffin for 2010-11, but offers hope for next year.
Patrick Hoffman at RLD Hockey takes on the Alexander Ovechkin conundrum. Despite his flailing statistics and frustrating statistics, he is still a pretty-darn-good player in roto. Not first overall good, but top 10.

Jonathan Willis of The Score takes Visnovsky’s success even further, nominating him for the Norris Trophy.
Finally, if Zone Starts are up your alley, Behind The Net has some fancy charts for you.
