    that's an awesome idea-now we'll always know where to find the 30 thoughts. It's been posted every week, so why not have a sticky?

    Everyone wants justice, until it hurts them

    That's just a damn great line, and equally unique explanation....

    What makes Elliotte great?

    1. I read it in his calm voice and tone.
    2. He does not read like he has ANY bias at all and gives a fair opinion on people.

    Outstanding hockey writer.

    It certainly is a great line and it sums up the attitude about head shots around the league

    this is the most impressive thing about his writing. Its nice to read an article without immediately knowing which team the writer supports.

    Thanks man. I love Mondays as I always look forward to Friedmann's 30 Thoughts and I get to post my OHL Weekly Ramblings. Both always leave me smiling.

    If you thought you couldn't respect Iginla any more:

    21. Couple of Jarome Iginla stories we had to cut from our interview: last year, he was taping a commercial for Scotiabank and was asked to say something along the lines of, "I'm proud to represent Canada at the Winter Olympics." He was also asked to say, "I'm proud to captain Team Canada." This was before the selections, and he refused. Scotiabank promised nothing would be seen unless they came true. He still refused. That's pretty impressive.

    And laughed at this one:

    28. Quote of the week: One executive on Kris Versteeg and Toronto. "Sometimes a rebound girlfriend doesn't work."
