In other NHL news:
- TSN.ca has a new feature, their 2005-06 Rookie Watch, in which they track the League's best freshmen. Not surprisingly considering the source, the guy with one-third of the goals, a much worse plus-minus rating and three fewer team wins (i.e. zero) than Alex Ovechkin is currently in first place. Haters.
- TSN.ca also has an article on NHLers "mastering the art of inducing fouls." I agree with the gist of the article and feel that the League should crack down on diving as much as they do any other penalty. The last thing the NHL needs is more players combining soccer's histrionic acting with Duke basketball's goofy-white-guy-flop (though last time I checked, soccer and Duke hoops were both wildly successful and popular).
