Sunday reading/scoring/watching

on
One thing that kind of bugs me about Life in This American Hockey League is that we really don’t get to know the officials. We may chat with a linesman here and there, and we can listen in as they joke with the off-ice officials, but the league isn’t much on having officials talk to […] [Read More]

Like last year/Not like last year

Is it the season yet?

Thanks to Miriam, who noticed that Trevor Smith disappeared from the roster somewhere between typing and publishing… He’s in 23, Morrison’s in 33, and no one’s in between. At least, as long as Jackman is wearing 16; he still had 28 on the lid this morning. Check the “Meet the Tigers” finale in the morning […] [Read More]
