Keeping Up With Konopka
Zenon Konopka is at the top of the FM leaders list, again (and almost). Keeping up with the man labeled a goon by the media until trade deadline day when he's recognized as a hockey player, and suddenly labeled "a good faceoff man and a penalty killer", can be challenging.
The Blue Jays, now "Canada's Team" for baseball, visited the Senators for some cross-promotional love last week.
It's a holiday weekend here in the States, so I'm admittedly cheating a bit with this post by not posting on-the-ice updates (and name-dropping).
Do enjoy some of the old school clips that have been posted.
To help fill in 2005-06 so I can properly post a best-of page for it, I will be posting fights from the same date (so Jan 16th's today) throughout the rest of the season, along with some other retro clips.
