with all the ducks v. wings action and with the sens beating the slugs in 5, there is really fuckall news about the other stuff going on in the NHL... but really ? most of it is like "oh, big shocker, the caps have signed backstrom," or "how can the avs WANT leopold for another two ????" so you learn to not really pay attention, so much...
well it's a good thing i've got a mole in nashville.
i found this little note in my inbox today, and i truly do not have a clue what to make of it:
"So - was just curious as to your thoughts on our latest news. Heard this evening that Leipold sold the Preds to BlackBerry owner Jim Balsillie. They said the team would be in Nashville for at least next season but no promises after that. That's not what I want to hear. I'm sure we'll hear more over the next few days...but we were a bit surprised after all of Leipold's statements of reassurance that the team would stay here. Weak."
how is it that i watch sports channels and read hockey news and blogs all the time and was totally unaware of this ??!?!
is ol'jimmy gonna try to move the worst jerseys in the league to KW ? maybe to the hammer ? or (OMG) WINNIPEG ??? or is it reasonable to think that my roommates cousin (rich peverley, if anyone is paying attention) might spend the remainder of his career in nashville ???
