Shrapnel - 1/20/11

Well, last night wasn't so fun.

For recaps of the insult atop of injury, check out Martini Hockey, Puck-Rakers, Dark Blue Jacket, and of course our thoughts.

In case you missed it, Radek Martinek's season (and potentially NHL career) is over, and the Jackets have officially signed Brett Lebda to an NHL contract.

In the wake of yesterday's SOPA protests, Travis points out how the NHL (and other major leagues) could eliminate the problem of pirated streams and make more money in the process.

54 years ago, Willie O'Ree broke hockey's color barrier. Today, he's still an amazing spokesman for the game.

An interesting question at Carry The Flag: Is there still value in Kristian Huselius?

How bad was Taylor Hall's injury on Tuesday night? Bad enough that this photo represents "Feeling a lot better."

With the all star game a week away, Puck Daddy remembers the ugliest all star jerseys.

An interesting ethical question: The NHL Alumni who participated in the winter classic this year were paid $200 for the game - many of whom spent more than that on bag fees and equipment. The game made upwards of $4 million dollars at the gate. Should the Alumni have been given a bigger slice of the pie?

Finally, check out Greg wondering if the big difference between Todd Richards and Scott Arniel comes down to the respect levels.
