    Ten days.

    What are you gonna do during the break to get your hockey fix?

    I might have to watch Slapshot for the 47th time. Maybe even Slapshot 2 if I get desperate. [It was too bad Jessica Steen didn't get to play the Dr. Weir character in Stargate Atlantis. She was pretty good in the pilot episode.] [I am a big nerd.]

    I have seen enough interviews with him now to get a decent feel for what type of player and teammate he is. The problem with early success and being thrust into stardom is it can really go to your head...

    For me it sounds as if he's suppressing his real feelings and playing the Be a Team Player role that he is expected to show.
    That was kind of my feeling too.

    How do you interpret that?

    Like he's learning that scoring goals and making (risky) offensive zone plays isn't the only way for him (or other players) to be successful. Maybe he's finally turning into more of a team-player and has embraced the new coaching staff.

    I've said it before, but for me the ideal Ghost scenario moving forward would be him rounding out as a decent offensive dman that we can keep. I'd rather have a useful Ghost than not have him at all. But that's only if he turns a corner as a player.

    That looks about right.

    The acting and writing in that commercial is about as good as the movie btw.

    I haven't watched Slap Shot 3 but could the joke be in reference to this commercial he did:

    Slap Shot 3. Can I say something nice about it?

    It has the second best sound track of the three movies. How about that.

    One hopes they are done with reviving this franchise.

    Anyone know what the in-joke was with Messier and the potato chips with the Hansons?
