High art, low art.

If you guys are in the mood for some great hockey reporting from an unlikely source, check out Scott Burnside's wonderful look at the original six over at

I'd raise an issue with his assertion in his profile of the Bruins that the losses of free agents Anson Carter, Mike Knuble and Michael Nylander are up on the level of guys like Allison, Guerin and Thornton- (hello? where's Brian Rolston?) but that would be quibbling. It's a great piece with tremendous scope that proves that ESPN's online department, (unlike on-air) seems to still be concerned with all sports.

But if you're looking for something lighter, here's a good little story about a goalie in Western Michigan who went all Ned Braden at the end of a game he wished had been officiated better.

If I had any discipline at all, I'd refrain from making a "six-hole" joke.
