Santa in Philadelphia?

Now we know what John Stevens has been doing since his firing:
Dressing up as Santa and punching children in the face.
What basis do we have that that’s John Stevens?
None.  But every time we see someone with a black eye we assume a Flyer did it.
There’s a rumor going around that Daniel Briere was seen scampering around the scene in an elf costume, but that remains unconfirmed.
Mark Messier has been named the general manager of Canada’s team for the 2010 IIHF World Hockey Championship.
He will play tonight.

“New York Islanders defenceman Brendan Witt was hit by a car in Philadelphia on Tuesday, according to Newsday. But Witt reportedly picked himself up off the road and, after a few profanities, assured everyone he was all right before continuing on his way, prompting one witness to say, ‘it was like seeing Clint Eastwood, but in hockey.'”

Upon hearing the news, Gary Roberts shrugged his shoulders and destroyed a small nation just to show that he can.
Former Penguin (and Senator, Flyer, Lightning, Ranger and Wild) player Alexandre Daigle will play in the Spangler Cup for Canada.
According to the Penguins website, the Pens lead the NHL in hits:

As of Tuesday the Penguins had four players ranking in the top 20 in the NHL in hits: Brooks Orpik (91 hits, 7th rank); Craig Adams (86, 13th); Matt Cooke (85, 15th); Mike Rupp (82, 19th).

The Penguins have 897 hits as a team, the most of any NHL squad and 52 more than second-place Carolina (845).

Of course, that means nothing since the Capitals lead the NHL in douchebaggery, the Flyers lead the league in pointless fights and the Leafs lead in using cheap nostalgia to sell tickets to a watch a team that hasn’t won a thing in over 40 years.
