Top Ten Things The NHL Taught Us This Month
10. Blackhawks reveal where to find the Swedes
A radio station in Chicago has a weekly feature – Sharp Attack – where Patrick Sharp calls in. This past week, both Viktor Stalberg and Patrick Sharp talked to the radio hosts. Stalberg tells us “Yeah, I go to IKEA everyday. I hangout there everyday, obviously – all Swedes do.” Patrick Sharp agreed and agreed and shared a story about how he was trying to find Niklas Hjalmarrson last year: “I was calling IKEA to try and find what aisle he was in.”

9. Joke emails are worth it - Adam Burish apologizes for causing a fan to lose a heated battle – with his friend in NHL 11.
Last weekend, Alex messaged the Dallas Stars with a complaint:
I was recently playing a game of EA Sports NHL 11. I was down by one goal against my friend, I was on a 2 on 0 and was impeded by #16 Adam Burish, and was unable to acheive a scoring opportunity, I ask that Adam Burish publicly apologizes to me for he had cost me that game of NHL 11. Thank you for you cooperation during this crisis.
Adam Burish got right on responding to Alex:
8. Paul “BizNasty” Bissonnette reveals his secrets on how he got that studly speedo bod:

7. Calling Elisha Cuthbert “sloppy seconds” is equivalent to an unprovoked attack on a fan – also equal are a massive boarding penalty that causes concussions and indicating someone should go eat a popsicle (we’re sure that is what James Wisniewski meant by that gesture…)
- suspended for 2 games
- suspended for 2 games
6. Mike Richards and the Philadelphia Flyers represent a classy team, full of graciousness when faced with a loss. Oh wait a second…
5. Sidney Crosby loves turkey on whole grain sandwiches – and apparently always walks down the street with a huge awkward smile on his face, giving his fans little nods (I still love him unconditionally and think he is the best hockey player in the world, of course, but an actor, he is not.)
4. Evgeni Malkin may have hid his true identity in the World Junior Championships in 2006 but he couldn’t hide it forever – he is Superman (does Evgeni Malkin = Clark Kent in Russian??)
3. Kris Versteeg is a Thanksgiving feast chef’s worst nightmare (also we learn of the existnence of “brown turkey meat” – I’ve only ever heard of dark meat, but he has me intrigued) and Colby Armstrong disgusted all Canadians by admitted he likes sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top.
2. The Leafs took a page from the hugely successful Penguins and decided to try and hand-deliver season tickets as well – didn’t quite work out as hoped…
1. Writing welcome songs to the Olympians coming to Canada clearly gave the boys’ a competitive edge that led to the gold (not new news, but it will never get old!)
