The disarray is symbolic of the Wolves' effort. At least they showed some fight here, though.
Last Saturday night, Scott Arniel channeled his inner Gregg Popovich. Sort of. Even though it was for completely different reasons, the coach sat many of his team's stars in an attempt to send a message. After having fallen all the way down to .500 - including a 1-5-2 swoon to end the month of November - the team responded with a strong effort against the Peoria Rivermen, by winning 3-1.
The likes of Jordan Schroeder, Zack Kassian and Kevin Connauton were all back in the lineup for this tilt against the Red Wings' AHL affiliate, and unfortunately, the team reverted back to its old nasty habits. In a completely listless effort in front of their home crowd, the Wolves lost by a score of 3-0. Unfortunately for Arniel, his message didn't get through with the same efficiency as the voice mail sent by the NHL to the PA.

I hope you watch all these games, but for the love of all that is hockey, at very least watch the Dynamo Moscow vs. Red Army (CSKA Moscow) game.

With the heart warming news that the Lockout negotiations are extraordinarily poorly, your ol' pal Wanye decided to go to a place where rage and danger are the norm. A place where most people rightfully fear to tread. When there is nothing left to live for you have nothing left to lose.
Time to take in a home game of the Oakland Raiders.

If you’re a fan of an out-of-market team, or a fan of a local team but travelling, getting a hockey game on television can be an extremely frustrating experience.
That’s why, according to a report on Forbes.com, a group of fans has brought a lawsuit against Major League Baseball and the National Hockey League. Their aim? To have a court rule that the current model is in violation of U.S. antitrust law.

Well, folks. It's time to go.
I've spent three and a half wonderful years yelling and cheering and bitching and complaining. I've loved every bit of it. But it's time for me to hang up my big-boy blogging pajama pants.
