All the Sabres and Canucks jerseys mashed into one. Gross.

All the Sabres and Canucks jerseys mashed into one. Gross.

• What do the Buffalo Sabres and Vancouver Canucks have in common? Well, they're expansion cousins, but they're also famous for their terrible uniforms. Here's what both would look like if you combined all their sweaters into one. [Reddit]

• Los Angeles has a hockey-themed food truck! Bloggers mobilize! [The Royal Half]

Alex Ovechkin was involved in a minor traffic collision in Russia, and it was his fault. What happened? Did he fail to use his rearview mirror, making for easy jokes about his unwillingness to backcheck? Sadly, no. He just lost control of his car, which still makes sense, since he's occasionally a reckless hitter. [RMNB]

• The Smithsonian has a feature on the tragic Lokomotiv plane crash. [Smithsonian]

• The Sarnia Sting were mocked for taking Pavel Zacha in the OHL draft, but he's going to report to the team. [Buzzing the Net]

• Young fantasy guys to target in keeper leagues. But let's get serious: if Tyler Seguin is available, you're in the worst keeper league ever. [NHL]

• Alex Radulov talks about what Ovechkin can expect playing for Barry Trotz: "Bad coaches don’t work at the same club for 15 years." Radulov told Lysenkov today. "When I came to Nashville Trotz helped me a lot. I learned a lot. I became a hockey player. The coach trusted me, called me up from the minors. I have only the best memories of Trotz. This is a new challenge for him [in Washington]. Life changed, he had to go. But he has a lot of ideas that he will be able to realize in Washington."[Dmitry Chesnokov]

• It always makes me laugh what a jerk David Backes is on the ice compared to what a good person he is off the ice. David and his wife Kelly visited Nairobi last month with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to personally fit hearing aids to impoverished citizens. [David Backes]

• Who are the top-rated goalies in EA's latest NHL game? Here's a hint: Jonathan Quick is now literally overrated. [EA Sports]

• Katie Strang on the rise of the fancystats elite. [ESPN]

• Mark Spector too, on Tyler Dellow's hiring by the Edmonton Oilers, which is no small thing, since these two have had some run-ins. Here's the spirited jab: "From Mom’s basement to Hockey Op’s. That’s quite a leap, and it couldn’t have happened to a more notorious guy." [Sportsnet

• The New York Rangers add to their coaching staff, reuniting Darryl Williams with Alain Vigneault and Scott Arniel. [Blueshirts United]

• The Predators broadcast team on FOX Sports adds rinkside reporter Lyndsay Rowley. [Tennesseean]

• Andrew Barroway has pulled his bid to buy the New York Islanders, probably because Charles Wang is asking $400 million for a New York hockey team that isn't the Rangers. [PHT]

• Connor McDavid is the guy for Canada's national junior team now. [Yahoo]

• Speaking of the World Juniors, Canada needs to get a little more Finnish, head coach Benoit Groulx says, much to the horror of Don Cherry. [Toronto Sun]

• And speaking of Don Cherry, he denies ever living in a mansion that's listed as formerly-his at an Ontario auction. Whatever the truth is, we know it's a good Canadian mansion. [Sportsnet]

• Finally, right back to McDavid. Here's a little feature on him and Jack Eichel, hockey's two biggestup-and-comers.
