Happy day after the deadline, folks. Hopefully you all made it out alive. I was going to go on a bit of a rant this morning, but Russo did it at 1AM, and he explains it so well, I'll just let you read his. You all listen to him more than you listen to me anyway. Not sure why. Just because the guy has been doing this for something like 15 years or has NHL contacts that even NHL GMs don't have?
You people are so fickle. Ha!
Seriously, the must read of the day. Read the rant, and absorb it. Breathe. Zenon Konoka was not the Cup clincher, is not the Cup clincher, and will never be a Cup clincher. Let it go.
As always, please head over to Facebook for the Question of the Day. Take a look at the Defending the Blue Line jersey auction as well. Sure, some of them are pretty high (which is a good thing), but some of them are still fairly reasonable for a player worn, autographed sweater. Take a look.
