Remember When ESPN Cared About Hockey? Me Neither.

In an article on Evgeni Malkin, ESPN offered this gem (underline added):

Hopefully Alex can add a Vezina Trophy this year as the NHL's best defenseman.

I don't know about you, but I think he has a shot at the Heisman Trophy for top goal scorer.

That is just a typo adding in an extra letter and making it "for" instead of "or". The ESPN coverage is bad, but Burnside is a good writer and does know the game.

It's not just an extra letter, as the following sentence's reference to "that award" and not "the latter" makes clear. And Burnside may know hockey (and how to hate on the Caps), but he didn't write that article - ESPN.com news services (whatever that is) did.
