Adrian Dater covers the NHL for Sports Illustrated, and specifically the Colorado Avalanche for the Denver Post. He injects humor and a unique perspective into his articles, along with his keen hockey insight. In fact, he has appeared on this web page as character in a Creepy Sedin tale.In short, if you are a fan of Barry Melrose Rocks, you should read Adrian Dater. He tweets, and his give and take with the beat writers of rival franchises is quite enjoyable. I would like to follow Adrian Dater on Twitter (@ADater) but I cannot. He blocked me. And I don't know why. I mean, I probably said something mean, but I probably didn't mean it, and I certainly don't remember what I said. IF you know Mr. Dater, please... PLEASE ask him to unblock me. All I want is to read his articles. I promise to be nice. I'm sorry for whatever I did. Tell him that. Thank you. And now go back to your hockey. I understand there is a game on Saturday.

Just in case you had ever wondered what two consecutive seasons of 45 or fewer points will fetch you in NHL negotiations, well, here's your answer: apparently it is a four year contract worth a total of 16 million dollars. I can already feel the puke rising rising up through my digestive system. I'm sure that there are many other NHL executives who now feel the same way since...
Midfielder Scott Parker has vowed to make the most of every minute in his first major international tournament.
At 31 the Tottenham anchor has accrued only 13 caps in a stop-start England career but is set for a crucial role under in Ukraine and Poland.
Having waited so long to play at the highest level, it is one he intends to grasp with both hands.
"It's a massive tournament...
The Colorado Avalanche like to do things a bit differently. As we've talked about previously here at Puck Drunk Love, the Avs prefer to handle negotiating contracts during the summer, after the regular season is in the books.
