Hagman in Dallas

This is too good to pass up the opportunity to make this joke.

Hagman is back in Dallas! (TSN story here).

Okay, okay. Not Larry Hagman, who portrayed J.R. Ewing on TV's "Dallas".

No. This is Niklas Hagman, who was shipped from Florida to Dallas for a seventh round draft pick.

This is a completely meaningless trade, but it will allow for lots of "who shot JR?" jokes.

Speaking of shooting JR, I've had enough of J-Ro's mouth with all of his whining about the direction of team USA and how he'll root for Canada if he isn't selected. As Japers' Rink points out, in terms of point production, Roenick isn't even in the top five Americans on the Kings. Yes, you've done a lot for USA hockey, but you're not producing. You're 35 years old, and we're looking to go with youth. Get over it.

By the way, if the Women's Curling team is any indicator, Team Canada will be wearing blue jackets this year. Blue? Since when is Canada blue?
