I've spent my morning neglecting my usual, customary, and reasonable blog-reads (with some exceptions) in favor of consuming a lot of the press on Stevie Y's new job, the reactions in the hockey world, and those of 19's MANY fans, yadda, yadda, yadda. And there is a TON of such reading to be had. I know there's all of about one of you Gentle Readers who might actually care about such things... so this link's for you, SN1. George Malik... the preeminent Wings blogger... has the best recap on the subject (and it's a link-fest). It's great good stuff. And this is but one of about elebenty-lebben of his posts on the subject.
Exit question... unrelated to the above... just WHAT is up with the NHL's scheduling of the Finals? Why must we wait until frickin' SATURDAY for the show to begin? Why not tonight? Or tomorrow, at the very latest? This sucks.
