Morning Links: Crosby does Good Deed and Cooke is not to Blame

A couple of real interesting stories headline the morning links today.  There are plenty of people that don't like Sidney Crosby but maybe they will change their mind after today.  Speaking of Sidney Crosby, do you ever wonder what the Sabres would be like if they drafted first that year?  Would the Sabres have won a Stanley Cup? 

Before I get to the links I wanted to remind you that tonight is Friday Night Fights.  I still haven't found this weeks fight but it will be another good one.

Brendan Shanahan will make the call as to whether he returns to New Jersey Devils - New Jersey Devils - NJ.com
The New Jersey Devils would like to have Brendan Shanahan back but are waiting to hear if he wants to play there. If he doesn't stay in New Jersey I'm not really sure where he fits in I hope the Sabres aren't entertaining thoughts of signing him.

Moyes challenges Reinsdorf's bid for Coyotes - NHL - CBSSports.com Hockey
Should we have expected anything less in this case? I still feel bad for Coyotes fans but I am getting truly sick of talking about this situation. I still think it would be fun to have a team in Hamilton but I wish that Balsille would just go away.
