The National Hockey League had a chance to make die-hard fans happy – which it didn’t, another example of the league’s identity crisis.
In this week’s Weekend Links, I’m thrilled about NHL realignment. Plus: Dean Smith forgets it all, Charlie Pierce on the Big East, a squash tournament video, and a Greek soccer player who hits the post four times with one shot.

We’re one week away from the September 15th deadline in the NHL collective bargaining negotiations, after which it seems certain that the NHL owners will band together and lock out the players, stopping the hockey season from beginning on time.
