I'm back after a bit of a hiatus (Christmas and HughesNet's poor service conspired against my blogging efforts), but thanks to the updated wireless system at work I can get some blogging done. My Christmas was pretty awesome, I got two awesome books that I must reccomend. First Jacques Plante: The Man Who Changed the Face of Hockey, was a great biography of one of the greatest goalies in hockey (it actually makes me want to hate habs fans a little less). Also, Saving Face: The Art and History of the Goalie Mask, has the most beautiful pictures and covers the history of the goalie mask. There has been a lot of news while I was on break, including a lot of roster stuff...
-Ernie's back! So is Elgin Reid.
-Brusty has left, and it looks like he'll be in Houston for a while.
-Forward Bryan Leitch (Stats here) has been assinged to the team.
The Blades are playing the Checkers tonight, and are going into the game with only one goalie on the roster. I'm not sure if Nate Zervos was unavailable, or if they plan on using a backup provded by the Checkers. Either way it looks like Morrison is a lock for starting tonight. I should be able to listen to the game, though I can't predict what will happen in this madhouse from one minute to the next. I'm thinking that scheduling some filler posts ahead of time is a good idea, it doesn't look like my Internet issues will be solved any time in the next decade, and it's not hard to come up with some random posts to keep the blog from getting stagnant.
