NHL Confidential

Willie MitchellFlorida Panthers defenseman Willie Mitchell, formerly of the Vancouver Canucks, recommends Hawksworth restaurant in downtown Vancouver, located inside the Rosewood Hotel Georgia. "Kind of a west coast with a little bit of a French twist to it – a lot of depth to it," he says. "A lot of meat and a little bit of texture. … The scallops are outstanding – anything for that matter."

Throwback Thursday: ‘Hockey Sock Rock’

The “Hockey Sock Rock” features then-New York Rangers players Phil Esposito (on lead vocals), Ron Duguay, Dave Maloney and John Davidson. Since this “music video” was shot in 1979 as a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, all four have enjoyed varying degrees of visibility — Esposito as a GM and TV personality in Tampa, Davidson as president of the St. Louis Blues (a position he’s leaving this week), Maloney as the New York Rangers’ color commentator and Duguay as a Rangers TV analyst on the MSG Network.

My favorite comment among those left on YouTube: “if you put it in hd, you can actually hear their dignity being torn in half.”

It just melts the lockout blues away …

Throwback Thursday: “Forgive My Misconduct”

Today we introduce a new feature on AllPuck.com: Throwback Thursday.

Throwback Thursday can be anything, really, as long as it isn’t current. And there’s nothing current about the music video above, featuring then-Los Angeles Kings forwards Dave Taylor, Marcel Dionne and Charlie Simmer (the “Triple Crown” line).

Credit George Strombopoulos of CBC.ca for tipping me off to this gem a while back. It makes for a strong opening act on Throwback Thursday. Here’s the back story, according to Strombopoulos:

Back in the late seventies, the Los Angeles Kings’ Triple Crown Line that consisted of Dave Taylor, Marcel Dionne and Charlie Simmer recorded the single ‘Please Forgive My Misconduct Last Night’ under the name Marcel Dionne and the Puck-Tones. On the other side of the 45, Phil Esposito and some other Rangers performed ‘Hockey Sock Rock’. All of the proceeds went toward diabetes research, but it’s fair to say that Dionne and Esposito (no. 4 and 5 on NHL’s all-time scoring list) were better at their day jobs.
