Since it's the dead part of the offseason, and this board seems to be a little snappy at each other (to say the least), I figured we could all use a little fun. So I came up with this idea.
That is the Altar of the Hockey Gods. Seeing as our playoff chances are often determined by how kind they are to us, I believe this board should start offering sacrifices to them on the altar.
The sacrifices can be whatever you choose and you can ask them for whatever you like. However, to show the hockey gods respect, try to keep the sacrifices appropriate for what you are asking the hockey gods to do.
So, let's say I were to pray to them and ask that Justin Faulk not fall into a sophomore slump. A relatively minor request requiring a relatively minor sacrifice. A hockey bag will do the trick:
Now, let's say I were to pray that Cam Ward doesn't suffer an injury for one entire year, starting today. A much bigger request requires a much bigger sacrifice. In this case, let's offer them a pot of gold:
And so on and so forth. With each new prayer and each new sacrifice, I'll add the sacrifices to the altar and hopefully by the time the season starts, we'll have a full altar and will have earned the hockey gods favor during the season.

I offer a case of Beast Light, because at one point during the 2008-09 season the Hurricanes managed to roll off 12 straight home wins during which Beast Light was consumed at our tailgating events. Perhaps an offering of more Beast Light will lead to similar success in 12-13.
I offer up a virgin sacrifice in hopes of not just a fluke Stanley Cup run but solid successes for at least as long as we've been "rebuilding" or "retooling." Now where IS WLOG when you actually need him....
Char's dreamy smile for a less whiny Skinner. I know I know, a lot to give up, but you have to give to get when asking for something so lofty. Tough price to pay, but I think we'll be a better team because of it.
