Operation Kessel Shutdown; no offence to the guy, got to respect a fellow Wisconsinite, but he's wearing the wrong colours.  For those interested in sweeping, exaggerated narratives, it's the prairie boys versus the city boys, where the good, hard-working hockey players cut from the common clay face the soulless, weak-willed boobs of the squeaky-clean Toronto streets.  Don't step in our way, we are a team of destiny...now if only we can figure out what the destiny is.

Plus, a jet would fuckin' burn a leaf any day of the week.

New Player Nickname: Little Bryan Man

What to Do if You're Going to the Game: Replace every noun that starts with a "d" by just saying "d" (example: for "dogs," "I could go for a couple of hot d's right now").

Prediction: James Reimer proves no match for the unstoppable Tim Stapleton.  Jets 3 to 2.

No game thread tonight (at least not from me)...men's roller derby practice.  I will be hip-checkin'.
