The statement NO player has worked harder or deserved a spot on an NHL squad more than North Bay Battalion Captain Barclay Goodrow seems quite fitting. You might also say that NO player has won over the hearts of a city more than our beloved captain. Not only does Goodrow lead the Battalion in scoring with 30 goals, 28 assists and 58 points in 57 games this season, he also holds franchise records in games played with 307, ranks 2nd in goals in franchise history with 124, only 6 behind Wojtek Wolski’s 130 and ranks fourth in points with 220. If that wasn’t already enough, Goodrow also leads the Troops this season with 10 power-play goals, 5 shorthanded goals and 7 game-winners.
So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that the guy who’s lead this team to a playoff berth and what could be a Central Division title, not to mention putting hockey back on the map here in North Bay has cracked the NHL. Barclay signed his first NHL contract with the San Jose Sharks this week, joining former Troops wingers Raffi Torres and Brent Burns.
Goodrow called in to chat this afternoon!

So apparently Kurt Cobain’s roommate or at least a guy claiming to be his old roommate is selling off some of his stuff. Kurt owed him rent money back in the 90′s and said he’d come pick up his junk when he had money for him. Well… that day never came and this guy has finally decided to get rid of Kurt’s junk. The BEST item here has to be the Swatch phone but only because every time you answered a call, you could get away with saying “hello hello hello… hooww looowww”!
Some bands spend days, weeks, even years perfecting songs. These bands did it in a matter of minutes. Here’s 9 Rock Songs that took only minutes to write.
The Rolling Stones – (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction
Further proving why Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is the coolest man on the planet! He was passed out at a hotel in Florida, woke up with his guitar in hand… recorded the riff to “Satisfaction” along with himself saying “can’t get no satisfaction” before dropping his guitar pick and passing out again. When he woke up there was 40 minutes of snoring and 2 minutes of music on his recorder.
Blur – Song 2
Blur lead singer Damon Albarn said it only took between 10 to 30 minutes to write ‘Song 2′. He couldn’t think of any lyrics for the chorus so he just yelled “WOO HOO”.
Oasis – Supersonic
Like their Brit counterparts/rivals Blur, Oasis could also write a tune in 10 minutes flat. Noel Gallagher claims ‘Supersonic’ was written during a 10 minute jam session. He wrote the lyrics later and the whole thing was completely finished and recorded within 11 hours. It later became the first single off their debut album.
Queen and David Bowie – Under Pressure
According to Queen guitarist Brian May, it took one night to write Queen and Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’. Nothing was actually written before the recording session. In fact, a lot of it was improvised. They finished up, then David and Freddie went for pizza.
The White Stripes – Seven Nation Army
Jack White wrote ‘Seven Nation Army’ before a show in Melbourne, Austrailia. He was at a soundcheck when he came up with the riff. He wrote the lyrics later but gave it the name “Seven Nation Army” so he didn’t forget it.
Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young – Ohio
The boys were all at a remote cabin writing music when Crosby showed Young a copy of Life magazine with the cover story of the Kent State Shootings. Young apparently disappeared with the magazine and his guitar for a few hours and came back with this song. ‘Ohio’ was released only 10 days after the shootings. Neil Young claims this was the best song he wrote with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.
R.E.M. – Losing My Religion
The story goes that R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck spent a night drinking wine and watching the Nature Channel on mute while learning how to play the mandolin when he stumbled upon ‘Losing My Religion’. Buck passed out soon after and later woke up to realize he completely forgot the chords. Luckily he recorded the session.
Beastie Boys – You Gotta Fight For Your Right (To Party)
One of the 1st songs written by the Beastie Boys off their debut album ‘Licence to ILL. They claim the whole song was written in 5 minutes…. On napkins.
Beck – Loser
This was the song that really launched Beck’s career. It was both written and recorded in a rap producer’s kitchen in about 6 hours. His producer recorded the slide guitar riff and the drumbeat. Beck never really thought he was much of a “rapper” so he starting singing the lyrics “I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me”… the rest as they say, is history.
