Well, friends, we all know what it is. It’s like Christmas, only with more dread.
Thus far, we’ve got that whole Forsberg thing, and I just found out that Tampa Bay defenseman Dan Boyle was signed to a six-year, $40 million contract, while Prospal went to Philly. Not super fascinating, although you could say that with Boyle’s resigning, it means that Brad Richards is definitely gone, which we all pretty much knew anyway. The question is where he’s going.
All I have to say to that? NOT DALLAS. If HullJack trades my Smitty, I’ll cry. I’m not mentally prepared for him to leave this team yet. Besides, if Smitty leaves, how will Mike Modano feel? He’ll have to find another drummer, and something tells me that he doesn’t want Steve Ott to take on the responsibility.
By the way, I’ll be here all day tomorrow, updating as stuff happens.
