Shrapnel - 6/11/11

If you live in Ohio, you stayed up on a Friday Night to watch a tense Game 5 as Roberto Luongo answered his critics with a 1-0 shutout, giving the Canucks a 3-2 series lead. If you live in Vancouver, well, you probably stayed up on a Friday night drinking to celebrate, and those in Boston were likely drinking to forget. Or watching the Sox game. You know, whichever. Oh, and Puck Daddy thinks that Max Lapierre's game ought to go into a time capsule. 

Here in Columbus, our big news was that Grant Clitsome will be back on the blue line for the next two years. Dan wrote a great editorial, while we had reactions from Puck RakersDBJ, and Ten Minute Misconduct

Here's hoping this is just the start of a busy summer for Scott Howson, but it's certainly a positive step in the right direction.

Meanwhile. SBNation's Mock Draft rolls on - a reminder, we're picking tomorrow!

The Dispatch's Aaron Portzline reports that former Jackets' S&C coach Barry Brennan will not be retained by the Winnipeg _________.

The Mayor of Windsor has named June 26th "Bob Probert Day", and it will be celebrated by a memorial motorcycle ride.

 Also over at TMM, Jeff discusses some of the Jeff Carter rumors, and the notion of "You have to give to get", among other childhood proverbs.

I'm keeping this brief because it's Saturday, and I'm taking he rest of the day off. Ciao, bella!
