Shrapnel - 12/25/11

Wherever you are reading this today, we at The Cannon hope it finds you safe, loved, and hopeful. Our best holiday wishes to you and your families from Dan, Mike, Andy, Lou, and I.

Enjoy some holiday cheer from Heart of a Jacket, Jackets Report, and Puck-Rakers.

The Dispatch claims Boone Jenner is living the Canadian Dream, but far as we know he doesn't have Leafs Tickets.

Aaron Portzline predicts sweeping change, but Jeff Little sees a more strategic approach in the new year.

Puck Daddy has Top 10 Fan Moments, Backhand Shelf thinks Nikita Nikitin is awesome, and for a few teams...perhaps this is the year.

Kick back, watch some old movies, enjoy the moment. As a friend said to me today, we are finally halfway out of the dark.

Today is a chance to remember that even in the deep darkness of a painfully cold winter (or a horribly disappointing season), there can still be light.
