A holiday gift for the hockey fan who knows everything: SportScan
Those "in the biz" probably already know about SportScan, which essentially amalgamates stories written on different topics into a giant pdf.
A daily version of it exists for the NHL and (unlike for the first 81 games of this year's Islander schedule) you now have a reason to go to the Columbus Blue Jackets website.
Here's a direct link to today's version http://bluejackets.nhl.com/v2/ext/2011/PressBox/SportScan122311.pdf
You can find them all here: http://bluejackets.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=73892
So enjoy. And find something you like and let me know ... after all today's edition is 248 pages long.
And while you're at -- thank Plainview's own Mike Russo of the (Minneapolis) Star-Tribune, and think about his friend, Kevin Roche too. http://www.startribune.com/sports/blogs/136051563.html
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
