First and foremost, sorry this is late. But, I'm just about out of F's to G. My GAF is nearing zero. Who am I kidding? It's been at zero for awhile. But that's no excuse. You deserve better.

It's going to be kinda cool, actually. Both teams with something to play for, but not so desperate as to cause liver damage in their fan-bases... I can get on board for that. Meaningful regular season hockey that doesn't carry the weight or agony of missing the playoffs. I could get used to this!
