I should learn to not be surprised when the league does something stupid. The raise in blood pressure and stress just aren't worth it. Of course, I've always had an issue with stupid people and stupid actions, so it likely doesn't go away. Still, it is amazing to see the lack of comment from any of the big names on this fine. I am hoping it is just stunned silence.
Let me believe that, will you, please?
No game again today. The team is practicing, however, so there will likely be some kind of news from the team. While we all wait patiently for something to happen, head over to Facebook for the Question of the day. Bet you'll never guess what the topic is.
Enjoy your day all.

The NHL Guardian Project origin story: Behind the scenes of hockey's most controversial new marketing effort - Puck Daddy - NHL - Yahoo! Sports - Long post from Puck Daddy that tells us there is more to it than just the cheese ball pictures. I read the whole thing. Great read, but the guy Wysh interviewed did a piss poor job of selling it. It's still stupid.
