    Default The Players Tribune

    Mod Note: This thread has been stickied. Please post the latest column here if you come across it first (similar to the 30 Thoughts thread).


    Thought I'd create this thread (maybe it can be stickied?) to keep links to selected The Players Tribune articles in one place. There have been some great stories written by current and former players that are worth the read. Here are a few links to recent articles to give you an idea:

    Patrick O'Sullivan: http://www.theplayerstribune.com/pat...van-nhl-abuse/
    Shane Doan: http://www.theplayerstribune.com/sha...oyotes-hockey/
    Bryan Trottier: http://www.theplayerstribune.com/bry...-younger-self/
    Brad Mills: http://www.theplayerstribune.com/brad-mills-the-bubble/
    James Neal: http://www.theplayerstribune.com/jam...dators-sniper/

    This thread can be used for discussion and to highlight other/new articles.

    There is already a "Must Read: Best Hockey Articles" stickied in this forum. A good number of articles are from The Players Tribune, so depending on the mods, it could be made it's own Sticky if they deem it worthy. It has many fantastic reads, right from the horse's mouth, so to speak!
