Shrapnel - 12/31 Edition


A win tonight will really be a step in the right direction to getting this thing back on track. Lets finish off 2009 in style!

And away we go!

From Yahoo! Sports:

With all the end-of-decade lists coming out, this one is probably the most tear-jerking of them all. #6 R.I.P., Ryan!

A pretty rare feat happened in San Jose last night. The Sharks converted on two penalty shots to beat the Washington Capitals 5-2. Jason Chimera already has his first point for the Caps, assisting on a goal.

If anyone is still interested...Mathieu Schneider has been placed on waivers by the Canucks.


Michael Blunden has been placed on waivers. We will know around noon today whether he was claimed by another team or not.

IT STARTS NOW. Second half of the season is underway and lets get it rolling against Nashville! Also, injury updates from some of the guys.
