Balsillie to purchase Predators

I think the location is as close to Toronto as he can get without owing a huge payout to the Maple Leafs. It's close, anyway. It would also function as a central location for Kitchener-Waterloo, London, Hamilton and Toronto, which includes, what, 8 million hockey fans?

The Worst Hockey Logos of All Time

Heh, this bad logo business has gotten insane... if my site was hosted on my own server, it would have crashed a few hours ago. (And if I'd have known so many people would be reading the thing, I would have done a bit more digging for the bottom of the barrel.) The No. 1 most common email I'm getting is saying 'where's the Islanders' Captain Highliner jersey?'

Doug Maclean:

It's the nature of the medium that crappy writing gets posted... I've learned to not get too bent out of shape about it when that's pointed out. I often wonder if blogging can hurt a writer professionally editors may read what's posted and be frightened off by all of the errors. I do, however, find it hard to believe Eklund meets the high standards of one who's such a stickler for grammar and style.

Fixed that awkward portion of the post... thanks for so kindly pointing it out. And, yes, Ryerson's the top j-school we've got up north. Not just any drub gets in (or out) of there.
