If ever there was a season that could be held up about the way plans can change in junior hockey, the current edition of the Vancouver Giants would be one. Always expected to be a battling team rather than a dominant team, troubles in goal and a lack of forward depth has pushed the Giants into full-on rebuilding mode.
Going into the season, the Giants knew they had holes but they didn't think that defence would be an issue. They had two highly-touted NHL prospects in David Musil and Brett Kulak to lead they way.

With the failure of mediation, the NHL has seemingly gone for a ‘Hail Mary’ move: asking for a direct meeting between owners and players without the presence of the leadership of either side. What should we make of this request?

This week I reached out to the good folks at BC Interruption, the geniuses behind the Gaudreauby Baker movement. A few FN readers already have the shirt in question, but I wondered if there was any other way we could help promote this totally legit fashion movement.
Apparently there is!

Remember yesterday when I said I'd bring you some of the games we missed the day before? Here they are! Plus a brand new one with Ovechkin making a KHL defenceman look like a scarecrow. Just disgusting.

With every blessed day that the Lockout drags on, your ol' pal Wanye is pushed further from home in the vain attempt to forget about the NHL and the beloved Edmonton Oilers. Today his sobering musings come from San Francisco. Also he is speaking in the fourth person, which has to be some sort of Olympic Record.*
