Tuesday link roundup: Pens, MAF are good, twitter fights, interviews with Potash and Grant

Somewhat vanilla "Penguins have been good this year" article. [The Hockey News]

MAF for MVP [Faceoff Factor]

Cool interview with a cool dude, Dan Potash [Pens Universe]

Pens' rookie Alex Grant (currently with ECHL Wheeling) gives an interview with Hockey's Future. [Hockeys Future]

Rob Zombie's got a great idea: let's kick up hockey marketing and glorify how badass it is.  Add Rob to the millions of people with better marketing ideas than the NHL actually implements. [The Hockey News]

Why wouldn't you want to read about 21 observations about Las Vegas and hockey?  [Puck Daddy]

Who would have guessed that the TSN power-rankings in mid-October would go NY Rangers, Pittsburgh, Phoenix as #1-2-3?  [TSN]

The Florida Panthers say they have no intentions of trading Nathan Horton [Sun Sentinel]

The Baby Pens "completed phyiscal testing prescribed by Pittsburgh's staff".  Sounds like fun, huh? [Penguins Insider]

Finally, "The Great" Mike Zigomanis signs a professional tryout with the Toronto Marlies. [Our Sports Central]
