So with the Draft over, Free Agent Frenzy's initial two days finished, and Development camp over, we now enter the long haul. July and August, those sad hockey-less months. How long will it be before we lapse into watching our Stanley Cup DVD's, Miracle, Goon, Mighty Ducks, and whatever other hockey movies we can get our hands on on repeat? (hint: some of us started last weekend.) It's a bleak time.
Luckily we have the Zach Parise/Ryan Suter sweepstakes to keep us entertained! I hope they both sign tomorrow, because AMERICA.
