Kukla's Korner Hockey
Last night I won the BoltDraft/KK fantasy game thanks to Rick Nash.
I am declining (and will do so if I win again) the $50 and after talking with the guys from BoltDraft, the money will be rolled over to next Tuesday's game, making the prize $100.
You will read more about that as we get closer to the date.
DFP delivers ads to Kukla's Korner and millions of sites world wide....
Here in the USA it is Veterans Day and in Canada it is Remembrance Day.
No matter what country you live in thank a veteran, not only today but every day.
If you missed the news earlier, start here and I agree with Westhead and I did not even include the "jersey ads" in the main story since I felt Collins was talking in general terms.
Yet it has become a hot topic of the day elsewhere.
It's been a hectic last three days for me so I am rewarding myself with some time off tonight.
I will be watching the games tonight and nothing else.
Of course if something major does pop up I will post, but other than that, see you tomorrow morning.
Yes, I have been following on CBC today the tragic news out of Ottawa.
My heart plus thoughts and prayers go out to Cpl. Nathan Cirillo of Hamilton who was killed today guarding the National War Memorial.
Yes, we have hockey tonight but it won't be the same, sporting events are secondary when tragedy strikes like it did today.
May this world which seems to be closing in on us become a better place, one where we can go through our daily routines without fear of violence.
Have a great day Canada, enjoy the time with familty and friends.
Here it the USA we celebrate Columbus Day which to me is a day without mail or banking.
But it does mean two early hockey games, Avs/Bruins at 1pm ET and Ducks/Sabres at 3pm.
Whatever your plans are today, rembemeber we are one day closer to an NHL team winning the Stanley Cup.
My plan for the next two and a half days is to take it slow, real slow. I am even thinking about taking the ice in a glass challenge, filled with a little adult beverage.
I need to step away from the computer, email, twitter, etc. to recharge my battery and catch up on a little R & R.
George Malik will try to fill in when necessary while I am away and I will return on Monday.
Have a good weekend and the countdown for hockey will begin soon enough.
KK was down this morning for about 1/2 hour due to a server issue.
I have been told the system may go down again before it becomes stable again so if you cannot access KK, you will know the reason why.
Sorry for the problem.
Looking ahead, we are not that far away from the official opening of NHL training camps which is September 11th.
The NHL pre-season starts on September 14th and opening day rosters must be set by 3:00pm ET on September 30th.
October 1st is the opening of the NHL regular season and then the fun begins.
