Use a Google Account. If that won't work, just register with Blogger (you don't have to make an actual blog). It takes less than 5 mins.

Yes. Open the "Select profile..." drop-down box and choose the second option from the bottom, which is "Name/URL." Fill in the blank for your name and you're done, I think.

fwiw, the mandatory suspension that should have followed Taylor Hall's match penalty for checking to the head has been overturned by the AHL

On replay, it looked like Hall made legal shoulder to shoulder contact with the player who subsequently crashed into the boards, hitting his head off of the glass, causing his helmet to dislodge, though this is "irrecusable" as this happened as the camera was panning with the puck away from the check
