    Someone should nominate Sean Avery for the Lady Bing Trophy, just for laughs.

    A couple of interesting tidbits, The Oilers have requested permission from the New York Rangers to talk to Tom Renny, while Marc Crawford insists he still wants in on the job.

    And the NHL has loaned money to the Coyotes, giving them more control over the franchise.

    I kinda like Marc Crawford in the booth doing colour.

    I've even got used to his high pitched girly voice. :)

    He sounds far too much like Bill Clinton.

    I know, I know, it was a risk to throw a grenade like that out there.

    Are you seriously implying that there's something wrong with winning the Lady Byng? I really hope you're joking.

    If you ask 95% of players in the league they wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole

    Maybe so, but there's nothing wrong with this award. Some are, of course, a little overly concerned about their masculinity.

    There has to be some ability to play to go along with not being some pseudo-toughie. Nothing wrong with that ... understand that enforcers are needed to keep things in balance, but the Lady Byng should not invoke female genitalia references, either.

    Simon, they are f_cking retarded. Wish I had a better answer, but the lack of flexibility is very, very trying.
