Bryan Little on developing into Winnipeg's top-line centre: "We don't really like to talk about first and second lines and stuff like that, but my average minutes are up more than any other year. I've learned to adjust to the role. I'm not that guy who's going to go out there and score 40, 50 goals but I try to do my best and try to get the job done -- whether that is shutting other lines down or trying to chip in on offence." [Winnipeg Sun]

Please, for the love of God, don't start calling soft penalties to enhance league scoring. [WFP]

Paul Friesen on why the NHL's current rules should stay in tact. Sorry Coach Noel, but you're among the dinosaurs for believing that hybrid icing isn't a better option than touch icing. Just ask Kurtis Foster how awesome touch icing is. Mmm, that was super sweet! Adapt or die, Claude. [Winnipeg Sun]
