Things that are hanging on my fridge:
- Old schedule magnets from 2007-08 through 2011-12
- Pizza coupons from one of those years, long since expired
- A phone number for a couple that used to live next to us, who we haven't spoken to in over 2 1/2 years
- A picture of my dog sulking while wearing a cone after being neutered. He was mad because I kept trying to point his head to the south in order to help the satellite signal.
- Two invitations to event that took place months ago
- A rotating magnet that says "dirty" on one side and "clean" on the other for use on a dishwasher. It worked out great previously, but this dishwasher isn't magnetic.

Things that are not hanging on my fridge:
- Justin Bieber tickets

People who have never been in my kitchen:
- Archibald Leach, Bernard Schwartz and Lucille LeSueur

(Also, if the most disturbing thing you know about me is that I know upcoming concert dates, you clearly don't know me well. Perhaps a good dose of "long answer" Derek Jeter would help matters.)

He knew it because I mentioned it in my post. I know it because I keep track of Nationwide Arena events that conflict with Clippers games, so I know to prepay for my parking (can get the Clippers rate for the Neil Ave. garage online with TM event code from the Clippers ticket) if I'm going to that day/night's game.

Why not both.
Howson and the fans are going to need all the excuses we can get.

So you're predicting he will suck in silence?

Maybe he'll just suck on the bench since Officer Bobrovsky is playing lights out?

Blues fan coming in peace, I think Atckinson is a great young player, and i expect him to break out in a big way this season. Kinda reminds me of oshie but smaller.

Being compared to Oshie is an insult

Can't wait to get the series going with the Blues. The spirited games will continue. Oshie is more a physical guy with some pretty good hands. Atkinson won't be as physical but is on the good hands team.

I think that's more because losing Syracuse meant that there was no longer a willing credible documenting agency for Mattlund's community service hours, and the judge ruled that calling Howson every fifteen minutes and kvetching about it was not a sufficient substitute.

Jackets finish 20-20-8 48 pts. 11th-12th and are competitive all year but just missing out on the playoffs.

Definitely a step forward.

Jackets finish 25-19-4 for 54 points finishing 9th or 10th.

Bob finishes top 10 in GGA and save percentage.

Mason performs well but not as well as Bob.

Mason and Bob are resigned but Mason goes to the ducks after hiller has a bad year and we get Bobby Ryan

Bold enough?

Since this is a prediction thread.....from Eklund

The Central
1. Nashville
Last year in this blog my whacky prediction was the Kings would win the Stanley Cup. This year I am picking the Predators to raise the trophy. The reason? Many. Trotz system is a stable factor in a shortened season. The Preds are the biggest and most durable team in the West...maybe the NHL. Mason, while a backup, brings strong leadership to the room, Weber knows he is a Pred for life....but mostly Rinne is a monster in goal.
2. St Louis
The Blues will be right there again and they will be solid having spent a year behind Hitch. I am very curious if the goaltending duo can be as dominant though...
3. Chicago
The Hawks will be looking to add a goalie at some point here. They are way too talented to not be running away in the standings.
4. Detroit
Even though I have the Red Wings where I have them I am not one of the people who sees them as falling apart after the retirement of Lidstrom. I just cant put them in front of the other three teams in this division (although I could see a very points separating the Wings and Hawks.
5. Columbus
My whacky pick...they start off like gangbusters. They have some really strong talent. NEXT year they are a playoff team. Also...look for them to be the surprise team in the Luongo race.

I find that last sentence interesting...

I put the over-under on Jackets wins this seasons at 9.5.

Jackets finish 30th in the league.
Ryan Johanson leads the Jackets in points.

Rick Nash averages > 1.0 ppg.

I'll take the over, and expect it before February ends. Potentially mid-February.
