2) I have quite a lot of family in the Nashville area; many of them are also Preds fans, and
3) Balsillie's hamfisted attempt to drag the team out of the city whether he had the legal right to do so or not engendered sympathy from me towards the Preds in general.

As for the actual topic... Gaborik so far seems to be fitting in beautifully. Which is awesome, because I was extremely concerned about whether or not that would work out (and why I was initially kind of ambivalent about any possible Gabby acquisition).

So far he's showing that those worries were misplaced. Which is very encouraging.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
