Thanks for remembering the basics, Faux. We are all so busy with rumors and picking our noses. The draft and free agency will finally give us something to chew on (or cry over).

You've provided a great season for us hockey fans -- so I extend a huge thanks for going the distance and covering the world of hockey we love. I may not always be commenting, but I'm always reading. So thanks!

Thanks for the kind words Dark!
