POTG Monday Headlines, News and Links

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and isn't suffering too bad on the return to work this week. I have ten more days until a much needed vacation.

With a relativity slow weekend on the hockey news front, we were still able to pull together plenty of stories and inks for your enjoyment. Make the jump for your Morning round-up...

In Pred Nation...

Michael from Puck Report has his Barry Trotz interview from the NHL Awards Show.

David Boclair talked to Barry Trotz after the SOTU and he was thrilled that the Preds are now a part of the "fabric of Nashville."

J.R Lind's weekly obsession takes a look at the new Predator gold jerseys.

Jeremy Gover is the Guinea pig for the first installment of "Getting to Know Blogger's Row" at Smashville 24/7.

Dirk Hoag piggybacks on Robby Stanley's question from Saturday of "What hockey mean's to me" to give his thought's.

Around the NHL...

Nathan Horton's day with the Stanley Cup was screwed up by some transportation snafus.

Ryan Porth ranks the goalie tandems one through thirty. It could be a long year for those at the bottom unless someone catches lightning in a bottle.

Here is an off playoff proposal that would give all 30 teams one last shot at the Stanley Cup.

After a bunch of minor signings lately, Mirtle updates his fop free agents remaining list.

Here is a report that says that a team finishing strong has little carry-over to the next season.

Matt Reitz has the best of what you may have missed last week.

Here s the latest rumblings in college hockey from Goons World.

Joe Sakic hit a million dollar hole in one in Lake Tahoe over the weekend. Puck Daddy has a video of the slow to react Sakic nailing the shot. Maybe we'll find a few leftover dollars when we are there in two weeks.

Chris Botta writes about new opposition to the Islanders hope to get a new coliseum at Point Blank.

Stan Bowman is a fan of Dan Carcillo and thinks he can play hockey too.

The Hawks-Canucks rivalry got so bad that Brent Seabrook had to move out of Vancouver.

Also in Chicago, Patrick Kane's wrist injury put a damper on the Blackhawks convention.

Karl Alzner is pleased to get his new contract with the Capitals.

Over 5000 fans flocked to the Nassau Coliseum on Saturday night for a mid-summer hockey game. I think the Predators give this idea a go with their development camp, possibly tied in to the Skate of the Union.

Frozen Notes has a few video tributes to Cam Janssen as a St. Louis Blues before he signed with Devils last week.

A lady hockey player is missing in Colorado. Here's the story.

Odds and Ends...

Are the ESPY Awards at the end of their run. The ratings were horrible this year.

It was a shame to see the US women lose in a shootout (ridiculous way to end a championship game) but Deadspin has concluded that the women don't flop as much as the men in soccer.
While Google+ was soaring, Twitter passed 200 million accounts.

Fast Company tells folks to chill out over the Netflix price increase.

More Later...
