    How did you pull that off? The draft didn't go that well for me (I think we all had a ton of Boston players up top) but I've got Chara :clap:clap:clap

    I had a pile of goalies at the top of the list in both my college buddy league ( which does a live yahoo draft) and the Jo Momma league.

    I saw a large drop off after the top five or six goalies, either because they are a 1a/1b sort of deal like Halak or on a crappy team, or named Luongo. :lol3

    I got Lundqvist and Quick, I am pretty happy about that. And both Staal storms....not sure how that worked out for me being late in the draft. Kopitar if he plays. I just want to see them skating again!

    If you don't follow @katiebakes on twitter, you should. She writes for grantland and always passes along good shit.

    Such as, this year's official media guide photo of Brent Burns.

    I am screwed on the goalie front. I am great of the forward front.

    perhaps we should talk. I have Rask, Fleury, and Crawford. Fleury or Crawford are probably available.

    I can't fucking wait for tonight. Wife took overtime at work because she knew how nuts it is going to be in our house. She wants no part of my shenanigans today.

    When we were buying our house, she made it a requirement that it had to have a room that could be my own tv room (man cave). She hates when I watch games because I scream and don't want anyone else to talk. :lol3 This behavior has allowed me to have my own room with a 50 inch flat screen with built in surround sound, hockey memorabilia all over the walls, and enough video games and consoles to keep me entertained for the next 2 lifetimes. Nerdom at its finest and I am okay with it:freaky

    Sounds like my future :lol3 wherever I move I bring my Bobby Orr signed 8x10, Bruins flag, and Bruins puck that goes on top of the TV.....then XBox 360 with a 3+ foot stack of games, 32" HDTV and my desktop with 2, soon to be 3 monitors and Steam. After the last 2 sales my Steam collection is HUGE, between that and my black Friday XBox buying spree I think I have enough games to last me till next Christmas :clap


    I did have 1 girlfriend who was even louder during hockey games than me :eek1 even for the Bruins and she's a die hard Red Wings fan.

    (As the bear says don't date within the division....it really does work out better when you can root at least half way for the other persons team. I dated a Yankees fan once and most of our fights were baseball related)
