Between luncheons with superstars and avoiding Wayne Gretz, I cobbled together some questions (and answers!) and managed to convince both Jean Lefebvre and TLP to provide some of their own unique insight into what I consider key issues of the 09-10 season. Settle in, this post has some volume to it...
