It’s a Civic Holiday in Alberta so these will be both brief, and a few minutes late, as yours truly is basically allergic to alarms on Holidays.
Not much to report over the weekend other than another curious quote from the Jesse Puljujarvi camp that threatens to turn even his most ardent supporters into curious observers. More on that later. But not much more. Because of the promised brevity.
The fan vote for our Top 25 Under 25 is still available, but will be shutting down later this week as we prepare to release our Honorable Mentions (30-25). Get your ranks in. Also, because of the freeness of the survey software, it’s not mobile-friendly (I know, in 2019). Apologies and thanks for your dedication in spite of such arduous circumstances.
