What goes around comes around. Vancouver Canucks’ Alex Burrows who rose to local infamy after trying to digest Patrice Bergeron’s finger in the Stanley Cup Final is out indefinitely with a broken jaw courtesy of his teammate Chris Tanev. Tanev was trying to clear the puck out of the defensive zone when he rifled a shot that connected with Burrows.

It looks like the ‘Great One’ Wayne Gretzky is about to come into a rather substantial windfall. These millions are part of a settlement from when Gretzky was coach (and part owner) of the Phoenix Coyotes. When the Coyotes went bankrupt, the remaining owners chose not to pay him. It looks like the NHL will be paying him somewhere between seven and eight million dollars. It’s not like he’s hurting for cash, but I’m glad to see Gretzky get was he was owed. (Puck Daddy)
