Whew it's sort of hard to get back into the swing of things after being away for a week. What I can tell you is this: that white netting that Capitals fans have been cursing and moaning about for the last few days? Is not that bad.


In today's links post, we have more Shanabans (or are we calling them Shanahanigans? I can't remember), the Bruins made some more expected cuts, a Winnipeg writer compares Tim Thomas to a cat (yeah, blame Kathryn for that one), and some fantasy drafting tips from the guys at Down Goes Brown...

  • Although Zach Hamill and Trent Whitfield have to clear waivers first, it's expected that they'll do so today and re-join their teammates in Providence, along with five others cut by the Bruins today. [Projo]
  • Tyler Seguin just wants a little respect, y'all. [Taunton Gazette]
