This jersey may or not belong to my guest today.
This time around, I'm joined by J.Bowman - which had to happen, after his recent appearance on the Fake SportsCentre - as we discuss some of our insights from the Wolves' visit to Abbotsford this past weekend, the lockout, and whether or not the Stanley Cup champion will have an asterisk by their name due to the shortened season.
We also go on an elongated tangent about the "rules" of wearing player jerseys, and just how much we miss the Vancouver Grizzlies. And there's lot more, but I'm not willing to divulge everything in this tease.

Every year we project how many points each of the players will score using a couple of different statistical methods, and why should a potential lockout season be any different?
If you're just tuning in, we explained our methodology in more detail in our first piece, which covered the top-six forwards. This time we'll cover the defensemen and then close up in a third and final piece that features the remaining, secondary forwards.

You think it's easy playing hockey with a giant monkey on your back?.
The last time we saw the Chicago Wolves hit the ice was six nights ago, when they imploded in the second half of a back-to-back against the Abbotsford Heat. The Peoria Rivermen themselves hadn't played since last Friday, either. And as a result, we were treated to a sloppy game - between two seemingly rusty teams - which was filled with turnovers, miscues, and unforced penalties.
Unfortunately for the Wolves, this game followed the same script as the game last Saturday, which saw them waste two strong periods when they inexplicably decided to stay in the lockerroom following the second intermission. A 4-1 loss at the hands of Peoria means that they have now lost two in a row, after having started the year on a 4-game high.

Want to see a bunch of hockey highlights featuring a bunch of fans actually enjoying that hockey and going nuts and stuff?
Today was a fantastic day of KHL hockey. Dinamo Minsk took on Barys Astana in Belarus for a thriller in OT, Malkin, Kulemin, and Magnitogorsk destroyed Spartak Moscow, and it looks like Alex Semin joined the right team.
***NOTE*** The Minsk-Barys game is only geo blocked in the United States. The other games are available worldwide.

It's funny how a protracted labour dispute in the NHL will put a damper on an NHL blogging Network. Assuming you define "funny" as brainshatteringly annoying. Who wouldn't want to read an up tempo article like that right?!
