Sunday Links - November 11th, 2012

Bruce Bennett

Links on Habs and hockey from around the web.

We'll talk hockey today of course, but I just wanted to take a minute before I get into the links to ask everyone to remember what today is about. Take a moment today and reflect on the sacrifices of those who fought for freedom and country. Many brave men and women have given their lives in service to us regular citizens. The oft quoted motto of the Montreal Canadiens hockey club actually comes from the poem 'In Flanders Fields' by Canadien physician John McCrae, who was inspired to write it after presiding over the funeral of a dear friend and fellow soldier in World War I. The poem is largely credited with the popularization of the use of the poppy on November 11th.

Now before I get accused of being Don Cherry, let's get into the links.
