Jorma Valtonen will now carry with him the most haunting of thoughts. When he heard the horrific news of a plane down and most of a team dead, [Valtonen] said his first reaction was disbelief. The players feared gone, the coaches presumed perished -- Valtonen had been enjoying lunch with all of them only a few hours earlier at the training base of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. ... [Valtonen], the team's Finnish goalie coach, had expected to be on the doomed flight to the season-opening game in Minsk, in the neighbouring country of Belarus. The club had even obtained for him the necessary visa for the journey. When management made a last-minute choice to leave Valtonen behind, Valtonen acknowledged that he had been "kind of disappointed." It was impossible for him to know at the time that the decision that rankled him had also saved his life.

Agreed. Luongo just never knows when to shut his trap. Too bad that cost his team the Stanley Cup. In my opinion that was the turning point of the series. If anyone would have saw the interview, you'd think Luongo had won the cup already.
If a cocky guy has to take back his own comments then you know how bad the situation was.

Well that was a first (and hopefully not last): hockey sweaters in .NL
(well the first I've seen anyway, I know there have been shops selling local ones down south but with one exception never international ones)

No Lakers, no Clippers, no Dodgers? No problem, L.A. Kings finally won one! Guess, L.A. just won't go away quietly.

Sure, anyone who is not a deep thinker might assume that you intended us to see the big picture of the LA Kings' victory parade. But I know that you are mysterious and playful; you wanted us to dig deeper for the truth.
With a couple clicks I found the picture that you really wanted us to see: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/mul...ontent.12.html
(I didn't even know that General George Patton invaded Holland. By the looks of it, he at least invaded a Dutch greenhouse or a gay bar's Carmen Miranda tribute party.)
