Going Off The Grid: Hitting The Ice With Four NHL Writers
A weekly survey of sports execs and personalities offering their thoughts on a handful of pressing (and trivial) issues in sports and pop culture. This week, NHL writers answer questions ranging from the league's leadership to who will be hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup come June:
- L.A. Times' Lisa Dillman
– Hockey season has curtailed her binge-watching of "Orphan Black."
- Columbus Dispatch's Aaron Portzline
– "I tweet, therefore I am."
- N.Y. Post's Larry Brooks
– Calls it "grand-pop culture," and is big on superheroes.
- Miami Herald's George Richards
– His DVR told him enough of "The Simpsons" and "Seinfeld."
