Friday Links

The Icemen come to town tonight after the Solar Bears snapped their four game win streak earlier this week. Obviously, this game is going to be exciting thanks to the Everblades current win streak. To hold you over until 7:30, here’s your weekly helping of links. Enjoy.

– Sometimes the weirdest Everblades things get put on eBay.

– Your Wikipedia hockey page for today: Professional Ice Hockey.

– You guys know I love hockey cakes. This one is pretty cute.

Random hockey trivia.

– OK, this is pretty awesome. Mostly because beer and hockey is a perfect combination.

– Your tweet of the week was easy to pick because… Ratchuk at forward is always fantastic news!


– Is it weird that I want to go to this?

– Kitty time!

I might have missed last week’s usual set of links, but I think this week will more than make up for it.

– The ECHL and PHPA announced that they had agreed to a new five year CBA.

– I’m kind of in love with this watercolor of Patrick Marleau (actually I’m in love all of that artist work).

– This hockey cake is pretty different, and I like it.

– I don’t think I’ve linked to Third String Goalie in quite a while (which is a travesty if you ask me). Luckily, I think I’ve found one of their best posts of all time.

– CYCWORDS has a little ‘clone centric look at how the ECHL Eastern conference playoffs are shaping up. It’s still worth a read to see some of the insight. I did happen to ask him his thoughts on the Everblades and he thinks they’re looking OK.

– I guess if you’ve been lusting after an Ernie Hartlieb 15th anniversary jersey this might be a good purchase, but personally, that’s a lot of money to spend when you could just drop $20 on a junior Everblades raffle for the same jersey.

– Kitty time!

Like I said, I’m really back on the blogging wagon. That means, I’m back with your weekly dose of random links!

– The photos from Wednesday’s game are up. Check ’em out here.

– In a move that is only surprising by how long it took to happen, Brayden Irwin’s been signed to a PTO with the Norfolk Admirals.

– In related news, Maxime Parent has finally recovered enough from his surgery to play again. The best news? According to his Twitter, he plays tonight.

– This week’s tweet of the week is proof that living in Florida will eventually turn you into a grumpy retiree. Case in point:


– Sometimes you find Everblades fans in the oddest places. Case in point: the United Kingdom.

– I bet you guys missed your weekly dose of hockey cakes the most:

These pillows are just another piece that needs to be added to my (imaginary) hockey cave.

– Kitty time!

The Blades take on the Wheeling Nailers  who currently sit in last place thanks to their 3-5-2 record over the last ten games. While the Blades sit in an OK position conference-wise, they could use every point possible to stay competitive in the ridiculously competitive South division.

– Not a bad jersey find on eBay.

– It wasn’t as hard as you think to pick the tweet of the week. The Wheeling jokes have been funny, but let’s be honest, that’s the lowest hanging fruit possible. Instead, I chose to go with Dan Milan reminding us of what we all wanted more than anything when we were kids.

twotw2-4– And since I’m not a horrible person, I’ll provide you with a link to buy those amazingly fantastic straws.

– I adore this hockey shirt. I recommend checking our their other shirts as well. they’re all pretty awesome.

– Have I shared these directions to make your own tabletop ice rink before? Because it’s just fantastic.

– Your Wikipedia hockey page for today: Summit Series.

– Someone loan me the money for this awesome coffee table (fun fact: coffee tables and cocktail tables are the same thing. Lear something new everyday, eh?)

– This big kitty reminds me of the time I woke up to a bobcat hanging out on my back porch. Living in the wilderness isn’t always awesome y’all.

After that little let-down in Greenville, I’m feeling a little blah about the Blades at the moment. It’s not quite Blades January losing streak blah, but it’s getting close.

– You know what’s not helping? The freaking Solar Bears signing another NHLer. Fun fact: an NHL grinder is an ECHL top liner.

– I checked Elite prospects to compare (just for fun), and decided to share the depression inducing numbers with you:

If I have to cry, you all have to cry with me

– In case you were wondering, those two games belong to Brayden Irwin. Congrats Slim.

– I think we all need some cake now.

This shirt feels very appropriate now. It really is all Gary’s fault.

This isn’t hockey related at all, but I figured if cake and mocking t-shirts didn’t cheer you up, bubble wrap might just be the answer.

– The tweet of the week was a hard choice. So, I went with a hat-trick of awesome:

– A person I can only assume is a giant idiot jerk looking to profit off of a jersey auctioned off for charity has put Mike Brennan’s Military Night jersey up on eBay. My list says it went for $500. Pay anything more than that guys, and you’re allowing someone to make a profit and get the tax write off.

– Kitty time? Kitty time!

– The Blades may be out of town, but you can still get your hockey fix at Germain. Day two of the Crocodile Cup starts today at 3:30.

– A tiny part of me is upset that a jersey was used to make this bag, but the res of me is pumped at the idea of a jersey bag for every team.

– The tweet of the week was hard, but Leigh Salters blew the rest of the guys out of the water with this simple little tweet last night. I think the hash tags make it twenty times better.

– $250 is  a little more than I’d like to spend on a game worn jersey, but hey, maybe one of you is a Peter Reynolds fan, I don’t know.

– I know it’s not Friday, but I couldn’t resist sharing this: Steve McJannet is still playing and still being himself.

– Which reminds me, your Wikipedia hockey page for today: Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey.

– Kitty time!

I’m still a bit sad about Wednesdays loss, but I feel really good about tonight. And not just because we get free mustaches!

– Bob Ferguson was before my time, but here’s a great interview with him that talks about the early days of the Blades.

– You really can’t beat a jersey cake, can you?

– You know what’s insane? Charging $10 (plus $3.50 shipping and handling) for something most of us got for free last week.

– A story from the Naples Daily News on Corey Trivino, added without comment.

– This isn’t hockey related at all, but Mental_Floss has a quiz that asks you to name all 52 animated Disney Films. I managed 41. Can you do better?

– Your Wikipedia hockey page for today is “National Hockey Association

This thing is beyond awesome. What a great way to display a jersey or stick.

– For whatever reason, I’m a huge sucker for vintage table top hockey games.
