*It was revealed yesterday that the NHL wouldn't allow players under contract who were still in the minors to participate in the upcoming Olympics, and naturally people were a little annoyed. But should we be annoyed? [Puck Daddy]

*Speaking of the Olympics there was a line brawl at a Team Canada-Team Russia pre-Olympic tournament, that's fun. [The Hockey News]
