Part One Of Blueshirt Banter's Q&A With Hockey Wilderness - Blueshirt Banter

I'm not sure if you guys remember, but a few years ago the SB Nation hockey websites paired up and did a Q&A session during the offseason to help break up the dog days of August. Back in 2009, our partner was Hockey Wilderness, SB Nation's Minnesota Wild blog. This year? We got Hockey Wilderness, SB Nation's Minnesota Wild blog. And you know what? That's not a bad thing. We still have Marian Gaborik, they just took Zach Parise away from the New Jersey Devils -- thanks for that, by the way -- and also added Ryan Suter to boot.

Marthaler: An NHL CBA Open Letter

If there's another lockout, if your hardheaded negotiating strategy causes more hockey games to be cancelled, I promise you right here and now that I will ignore the NHL at least until the first TV timeout of the first game of the regular season. Oh yes, Mr. Bettman. You won't like that, will you? That first few minutes of halting, opening-game hockey - you can kiss that goodbye. We hockey fans will be ignoring the TV. You might as well give away those ads for free, right up until 7:25 p.m., when we glance at our watches and say, "Well, maybe I'll just check the score." Welcome back to SB Nation Minnesota, Mr. Marthaler. You were missed. Anyone agree with Jon? I know I do. They can do whatever they want, and they know they've got me by the seat of my pants. Le sigh.

T3I: Aeros President David Burke Headed to MLS

According to our friends at The Third Intermission, Aeros President David Burke is headed to the Colorado Rapids, and MLS team in Denver. You have to guess that moving from a minor league squad to a pro level squad is an upgrade, even if it is a downgrade in sports. T3I also speculates a bit on the future of the Aeros, saying there are rumors the Aeros could move to North Dakota. North Dakota? Really?

Without a new deal, NHL lockout by September 15, says Gary Bettman

Via PUCK DADDY Lockout is looking more and more immanent. For the record I feel this is bullshit! Pretty sure you all feel the same!

Lucia Shines at US WJC Evaluation Camp

Looks like Mario Lucia had a hell of a game against Team Finland during a WJC eval camp netting a Hat Trick. Its nice to see him looking good after missing most of prospect camp and coming from a relatively weaker league in the BCJHL.
