The Michigan Daily had a nice article on the differences between blogs and newspaper coverage. It may seem odd given what I do, but I really do hope newspaper can find a way to get things together. There's a long rant to go with this, but I'll save that for later.

I noticed I got a little criticism for not putting Edina's Anders Lee on my list of Mr. Hockey candidates. That's a fair criticism, but I thought I'd give my reasoning. Personally, I think Marshall Everson is a better player than Lee, and if anybody from Edina is going to win the award now that Zach Budish isn't playing, I think it should be Everson. Lee is also a very good player, but I think part of the reason he's getting so much attention right now is that he's one of the few top prospects out there that hasn't committed to a college, and the Next Big Recruit is always going to get more attention than someone that committed to a school years ago. Of course, if Lee ends up committing to Minnesota, which seems like a very real possibility, I could see him keeping that hype.

On the injury front, Michigan State's Nick Sucharski will miss a lot of time due to a shoulder injury. I'd guess that at this point, he'd opt for surgery.

The UAA Fan Blog wins an irony award for saying in the same post that Anchorage A) needs to build a new arena with a minimum of 6000 seats B) Is giving away a ton of free tickets to seats in their current 6400 seat arena. There's not even a paragraph between the two.

This site got a mention among the top college sports blogs.
