Players and their non-NHL clubs
CBS Sports did a good job of compiling some highlights from various leagues, including your Captain, Joe Thornton.  Incidentally, if anyone knows where I can get one of those sweet Davos jerseys, I’m willing to pay some good coin for it.  If you’re like me, though, and highlights aren’t enough, you want more.  Problem is a lot of leagues won’t let you watch their feeds outside of the country in which they reside.  The one exception?  The lawless, swashbuckling Kontinental Hockey League.  Their website has a link to free live streaming of all of their games and programming.  The toughest part about figuring it out is that the entire page is in Russian, but if you use Google Chrome it has built-in translators that can rectify that for you.  Enjoy watching the second most exciting hockey in the world.  And if you want to see the player the folks over at The Hockey News claim is not even in the top 10 in the NHL (Ovechkin), he plays for Dynamo Moscow and is KILLING it so far.  This video makes me wonder why he doesn’t wear #32 all the time.  Is it because he’s trying to overtake the “Employee No. 8″ moniker from Antoine Walker?  Not likely, Alex.
Fantasy Hockey
The guys in the “Impeach Bettman” league and I are headed into our 7th season as soon as the 2012-2013 campaign starts.  All I have to do is click that handy “Renew League” button and we’re good to go.  Interested in being in a fantasy hockey league?  Hit me up on Twitter @bluelineboomer and we can compete as soon as the season starts.  It’ll be a 10 team league, vs. format.
