Three: The number of days until the Kings retire Rob Blake's jersey and also the number of games left before the All-Star break. Which SBN blog is the leader in the number of "f**ks"? Marc-Andre Fleury and Jaroslav Halak were named Pekka Rinne's and Jimmy Howard's replacements for the ASG. CBJ's Ryan Johansen has a franchise record 11-game point streak going.

Welcome to the Hockey Police State. This is someone's personal blog but I'm sharing it after a lengthy and annoying conversation last night on twitter in which a man insisted that "puck bunny" is a deserving title for women who sleep with hockey players. He constantly ignored the argument that by continually using the term, he is policing women's sexuality. It shouldn't matter whether or not a woman decides to sex and with whom - that is her business and hers alone. Ok lecture over. Carry on.
