Monday Chum Bucket: Watch Joe Thornton set up Rick Nash's hat trick


  • In case you missed it, Joe Thornton picked up right where he left off in the Swiss National League over the weekend. Seven years after scoring 25 points in 14 playoff games for HC Davos, Thornton set up all three goals of a Rick Nash hat trick in the first period of the team's 9-2 romp over David Aebischer's squad. You can watch it above. [YouTube]
  • More on that game, including how HC Davos is milking the Thornton and Nash cow for all it's worth. [Puck Daddy]
  • Martin Havlat, speaking through completely unbiased and sensible player agent Allan Walsh, says he isn't shocked to be compared to cattle when "some of the guys on the other side" don't even view the players as human. I knew Nicklas Lidstrom was a cyborg. [Pro Hockey Talk]

  • Dan Boyle responds to fan outrage about the lockout. [CSN Bay Area]
  • Could the Sharks benefit from a lockout-shortened season? [Hockey Tracker]
  • "On average, 140 of the players who were in the NHL in a season will never play in it again. Considering that there are around 1000 members of the NHLPA right now, that means about 10% of the association, knowingly or not, is locking out the end of their career." Ellen Etchingham with a fascinating look at player career length and its impact on these negotiations. [Backhand Shelf]
