Daily Link for Sunday, Aug 8

Today is another entry in our series of "If you read one thing today..." links, showcasing the absolute best of what the hockey blogosphere has to offer, and something you might have missed earlier in the year but is absolutely worth a read.

Today's entry comes from Deadspin, and they offer a surprisingly insightful and controversial look into the world of a school in Saskatchewan that trains minor hockey players how to fight.
