1) Nice to be back from the 'Old country' with the rest of the Faux-crew. Some times staying out of the loop is relaxing. We each vowed to our spouses to NOT turn on our lap tops to access the Internet while we were away, and we were good to our word.
2) It appears, as we expected, we didn't miss too much in the 10 or so days we were 'out of it'. Thanks for all the E-mails that were sent in by our readers and sources. Sorry we didn't/couldn't respond to them expeditiously as usual. We believe FAUXRUMORS is preparing a Post-response to our many e-mailed questions. Look for it in the upcoming days. We won't bore you to tears with the details of our trip. A hockey blog isn't a place for that. Write us if you'd like some inside info of what we did/saw.
3) It appears our old 'friend' Hockeynutz is suffering from the non hockey news malaise/boredom. From out of the blue he appeared. First creating a 'straw man' (Hawk) to try to get a response from us, then probably forgetting to change over from his own screen name, he responded to himself. LOL His silly attempt to have his creation Hawk post on his blog was priceless. Thanks to Lloyd and then Jintzie (Say hello to Theresa!) for carrying our water while we were incommunicado.
4) We have gone over that bridge too many times before to get into another silly pissing contest with the likes of him. We will of course allow all posters their time to write what they wish here(other than Spam). We will limit our responses, and try to keep the subject matter on hockey. On that note, we are preparing our off season analysis for the 30 teams, and as we hear them will post the latest rumors from throughout the league. As always, keep it here for the latest and again, its great to be back!!!
