Stuff happens while you’re on vacation in an undisclosed country. (Hint: HC Davos is not nearly the offensive powerhouse it once was.) Unless, of course, nothing happens. So much for the big, huge trade rumors leading up to the deadline. (Glencross? That’s the best you can do, NHL?) But Cujo played for Calgary for the first time and it was a shutout…for Garon.
No news about Sundin, Tanguay, Ryder, Jokinen, Bettman quitting (please, please, please) or Don Cherry coming out of the closet. What, they think this site is going to write itself? Can’t Kovalev get charged with vehicular manslaughter? Raycroft hit by the Bathurst streetcar? Luongo busted with a yellow-stained pipe off Hastings and Main?
Until then, we’re just waiting for the deadline. Stupid sexy deadline.
