Jagr to Devils, more links

By Jeff

  • All former Pittsburgh Penguin, New York Ranger, Philadelphia Flyer and now current New Jersey Devil Jaromir Jagr is to spend some time with the New York Islanders and he will complete the tour of the old Atlantic Division. [Puck Daddy]
  • Former Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Erik Bedard had a no-hitter going this weekend, and then he took himself out of the game after six innings. His logic makes sense. The guy knows he can't go more than 110 pitches. Maybe Johan Santana should take notes. [ESPN]
  • Adrian Peterson, eat your heart out. Robert Griffin III has been medically cleared to play football only six months after tearing his ACL in the playoffs last season. I'm not sure how that works. Could deer antler spray be involved? [Rotoworld]
  • The good news for Peyton Manning is that Von Miller is on his team, so he doesn't have to worry about the All-Pro breaking his neck or anything. The bad news is Miller could be suspended for four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. No Elvis Dumervil all season and no Miller for the first four games could be very tough on the Denver Broncos. [USA Today]
  • Peter King is channeling his inner Bill Simmons and He has started a new Web site, Monday Morning Quarterback, that will be all things football. This is the trend we're seeing in sports media today. We could be a few years away from no longer having iconic sports magazines and print publications, as everything will be these super sites.

  • Speaking of Deadspin, they have a great picture of Miek Tomlin and some tattooed woman. [Deadspin] 
  • A study has found that stricter rules in the NHL have not cut down on the number of concussions suffered by players. Apparently hockey is a full-contact sport. Who knew? [SI]
