Caption Kane and Seguin; NHL, NHLPA ready for week of talks (Puck Headlines) (Puck Daddy)

Here are your Puck Headlines: a glorious collection of news and views collected from the greatest blogosphere in sports and the few, the proud, the mainstream hockey media. • We don't often simply publish a photo and do the "Caption This!" thing. But for this image of Patrick Kane and Tyler Seguin playing for EHC Biel in Switzerland … have at it and CAPTION THIS in the comments. [ @btmn99 ] [Nick Cotsonika: The world according to Jaromir Jagr ] • The NHL and the NHLPA are preparing for a week of talks, and the great news is that they're not about where to hold the talks but actual, you know, negotiations. [ CSN Bay Area ] • "Sidney Crosby inadvertently took a divot out of Matt Cooke's forehead with his stick during a drill last Friday." In a related story, Boston just purchased Sidney Crosby the beverage of his choice. [ Post-Gazette ] • Finally … Thomas Vanek … HAS COME BACK TO BUFFALO (from Austria). [ Sabres Edge ] • The epic failure of the New York Islanders leaving for Brooklyn: "The Coliseum was no longer fit for a professional franchise and the clown show that is often Nassau County government apparently didn't see the importance of keeping the team." [ The Island Now ] • Great stuff from Charles P. Pierce on the Manchester Monarchs and how hockey continues while the NHL is locked out. From Larry Robinson of the San Jose Sharks: "It's big business now. If you look at what they're talking about in revenues, you're not talking about millions, you're talking about billions. There's got to be some medium somewhere where both sides can be happy. For me, it's very frustrating because I'm just starting with a new organization and I was happy and excited to start a new job, and all of a sudden there's no job to go to, and it's frustrating for me." [ Grantland ] [Also: A glance at NHLPA perks in next CBA ] • Another good piece from Aaron Gordon at The Classical, on Gary Bettman: "No other league deprives their fans of their product with such regularity in the name of making the game more popular. This is The Bettman Paradox: the league that shrinks in order to grow, the league that stops existing so it can continue to exist." [ The Classical , via Wayne Brown] • Rick DiPietro is hurt. We'll alert the media. [ Merkur , via Travis Hughes]
