Hi folks! I had this list passed on to me from the fine folks at PeekYou.com. Interesting list! Scroll to the bottom for two of my own additions.

============================================

It’s NHL playoff season – the race to partake of the questionable sounding act of drinking from Lord Stanley’s coveted cup is upon us in earnest.

With that, PeekYouthe leading people search engine presents the PeekScore line up of the NHL’s top 10 scorers as per their respective Web presence; just in time for playoffs.

PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your bloggingparticipation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news.

[Dave’s note: I’d like to add two names to this list as interesting NHL player Twitter follows:

1) Dustin Penner @Dustinpenner25 for his immediate hilarity as a Twitter rookie, self-deprecating Pancake humor, and odd digs at LA sniper Anze Kopitar. 

2) The substantiated but heavily speculated Twitter account of Roberto Luongo @strombone1 which has speculatively been serving as a sounding board for the goaltender that asked for a trade from the Canucks recently. Luongo has never admitted to running the account, but bloggers and TV stations alike have been hot on the trail.  ]

What Do You Get When You Cross the Phoenix Coyotes and Dos Equis?

Paul “BizNasty” Bissonnette and the Phoenix Coyotes don’t always make the playoffs, but history shows that when they do, they don’t exactly go deep in them — the team has never advanced beyond the first round. They again sit on the fringe of entry this year. They also again sit on the fringe of continuing to operate in Arizona.

Another oft-eliminated early team are my LA Kings, who currently sit 3rd in the Western Conference, due to some ludacrous (i’ll take it though) qualifying calculations by the NHL that puts them ahead of 3 teams with more points than them. Currently my favorite site that tracks the current state of the Kings is www.arethekingsintheplayoffs.com , operated by The Royal Half (on Twitter: @theroyalhalf); possibly the most pessimistic Kings fan of all time, so it keeps things objective and in perspective. It’s a must see for all Kings fans that aspire to see the team one day achieve what they have never been able to do, even with the greatest player of all time (that’s Gretzky, of course) — win the Cup! Threat Level has been elevated to MURRAY.

An Open Letter to Vancouver Canucks Fans

May 12, 2010 4 comments

Dear Vancouver Canucks fans,

I hate to say it… wait a minute, who am I kidding, I love to say it,

WE ALL TOLD YOU SO

 

You may have made it farther than my team, but yet again, despite all the hype and hope, “Vancouver Canucks” will not be etched on the Stanley Cup, and that’s all that matters in the end. 

I’m interested to see who’s fault it’s going to be, and who will the fans demand to be traded.  Maybe the Green Men didn’t measure up this year?  Whoever’s fault you decide it to be, please just don’t destroy your city and hurt each other this year. 

Hahahaha, until next year Canuckleheads…

also, this means Casey Fodor and Jeff Bourne are eliminated from the Double Championship Challenge.  Thanks for playing!!!
