Grind- Today I decided to honor those un-sung heroes willing to go into the corners, in front of the net, crash and bang and do whatever it takes to get the puck - and then get it to someone who can actually score.

Mount Puckmore: The four faces of the Detroit Red Wings- It was the Detroit Red Wings' turn to have four franchise faces immortalized on a mountainside. George Malik of Snapshots/Kuklas Korner was awarded the honor of selectiing our foursome. And I think there are few arguments that can be made against his choices. It's hard tp only pick four out of so many hockey legends.
The Greatest Wings of MY Time - #4- Graham from The Hole in the Door has now moved into the top five of his countdown of greatest Wings (in his oppinion) over his lifetime of 30+ years.

Georgie-boy will be getting to evaluate the young netminder even closer in a few week as both will be in Traverse City for camp (with much different roles, obviously).
