NHL Breathing A Sigh Of Relief

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special Monday morning "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

With the NHL on hiatus, and news about the timing of Gretzky's call to Tocchet last Monday, we'll see how much play the Rick Tocchet gambling ring story gets over the next couple of weeks. I think Bettman and the NHL are breathing a sigh of relief - for now. I woke up to the Team 1200 and they were yipping about the SenaTards and how they are holding their breath that none of them gets hurt - meh. The morning guys on WEEI are on to the Olympics.

Lots of talk up here about the upcoming NHL trade deadline and who should or shouldn't be traded - for baseball fans, trade talk is how we occupy ourselves during the off-season. The new reality in professional sports - the salary cap - has changed the way management and fans look at their teams. It seems that now, more than ever, potential outweighs performance when we look at who we want on our teams (the exception to the rule being the NY Yankees). In a nutshell - I wonder how many GMs cost their fans a shot at championships by not making moves to try to win in the here and now - when their teams are close, instead choosing to hold on to a player who is going to be great down the road. More to come on that later

HOLY CRAP... the morning guys on WEEI are talking about Gretzky - the discussion is focused on how much Gretzky knew about the gambling ring. They are wondering aloud about how oblivious Gretzky would have to be to claim not knowing anything. Sound familiar?

Time to get ready for another week of work. Have a great one peeps.

You can develop good relationships with people who can offer you stability in your work and your position in society. Travel, entertainment and developing an interest will all turn out better than expected. 5 star

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world - sounds like a great day ahead.
