Afternoon Scrum 1/12/10

Hockey headlines for the CBJ and from around the league. Mmmmm... hockey

  • Jackets @ St Louis tonight. Here are the pertinent previews: Columbus Dispatch, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, NHL & ESPN.
  • Vancouver F Alex Burrows has accused referee Stephane Auger of intentionally calling bad penalties against Burrows in a recent game. Accusing referees of purposefully making calls against you or your team is akin to accusing Col. Nathan R Jessup of ordering a Code Red. You can't handle the truth. If this story is true and the truth comes out, it is as big of an issue as that NBA ref who was gambling on games.
  • Cujo is hanging 'em up. Great career, and a HOF in waiting.
  • Not sure what to make of this one. Remember Mike Danton? He's the former Blues player who was convicted in a murder-for-hire plot to kill his agent. Dude has been granted parole, and is enrolling at St Mary's University where he will be a member of the school's ice hockey team.
  • Ryan Kennedy over at THN makes an interesting case for awarding penalty shots at the end of games in lieu of the man advantage.
  • CBJ G Mathieu Garon was named 3rd Star of the Week by the NHL following his recent string of games. Garon will make his 4th consecutive start for the Jackets tonight in St Louis.
