Morning, folks!

Bit behind the old 8-ball this morning as, for some reason, it felt like we sprung forward this weekend. I’m exhausted. I feel like I’ve been carrying around Milan Lucic for a full season. I can feel it in my hips.

Big week for our heroes as they venture away from the recently-safe confines of Rogers Place for a trip East, with three against the Habs on deck before two more against the Maple Leafs in the hole. 5 PM(ish) MST starts all week, folks. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday. LFG.

Connor McDavid is on pace for just about 100 points in 56 GP this season. Will he do it, or will he stop trying so hard to avoid being too close to 99 and therefore being so disrespectful?

Now that ‘Jesse Puljujarvi is amazing’ is going mainstream, Sunil took a look at the player before and after his homeward hiatus to remind folks that he was good before, too.


It’s Podcast Day! Get your earholes around last week’s episode before “Episode III: Pretend, or The Shit?” drops this afternoon.

Granted, I haven’t heard it yet, and it definitely isn’t named that, but I’m going with it anyway.

On deck for this week? Edmonton as Division Leaders, Puljujarvi’s being so gosh darn adorable out there, and possible extensions for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Adam Larsson. You know, because it doesn’t make any sense to talk about a Tyson Barrie extension. We know this.
