So after a couple long weeks of waiting, I finally got a knock on my door from Purolator this morning. The big box of yellow shirts are here.
I'll try my best to get these things out to everyone who ordered them ASAP. There are a couple of options here:
1.) Mail 'em. This is unfortunately the only option for anyone outside of Calgary.
2.) In you're in Calgary and live somewhere on the south side, I may be able to deliver them right into your mailbox for you. Alternatively, I may meet with a couple of the site's writers who ordered shirts this weekend for a beer or two. If you want to come by a pub and pick up your shirt(s) in person, we could probably arrange it for saturday or Sunday.
I'll get busy putting everything together this afternoon. If you're in Calgary and prefer the straight mail option, no worries. Otherwise let me know via email or comment if you want your shirt(s) delivered or if you want to go the pick-up route (with beers or at my house if you're really desperate).

Well it hasn't been the merriest of Christmas seasons this year has it? Instead of squeezing present shopping around Hockey Night in Canada or Battles of Alberta, we've had to put up with histrionic lawyers at press conferences, game cancellation announcements and endless debates about which side of the labor argument is more reprehensible.

A light day in the KHL today (just two games), so we've added packs from two of Wesnesday's games that you might have missed.

1. Interesting about this European disquiet
The thing we always heard about guys going over to Europe during the lockout is that while they wouldn't exactly be able to make the kind of living they were used to in the NHL, they could do well enough, and play hockey at a high level.
And that may very well be true.

When I previously wrote about the Abbotsford Heat's uncanny success through the early going, the team had suffered just one regulation loss through it's first 10 games and was a league leader in just about every category. Much of that success carried through the month of November, which is why they remain on top of the Western Conference standings with 36 points.
Unfortunately, the Heat have hit the inevitable wall in December, having managed just two wins in their last eight contests and just nine goals over that span. So what happened?
