Hey hey, we're a little bit late as we couldn't stop hitting the snooze bar this morning after expending all of our energy on the Bruce Boudreau hire. We aren't done with that coverage yet, either. But today marks the start of the first week of the Boudreau era, and we will have plenty to watch as the team shapes itself this offseason to start fresh next season under new leadership and with a new identity.
Don't forget about our party at the draft! It will be your opportunity to get together with plenty of other like-minded hockey fans from the blog- and twittersphere. Please join the event page and definitely invite your friends, we'd love to see you all!
