The NHL season begins today. Actual hockey games. Actual hockey games that award teams points for the playoff-position standings. A new dawn.
The Thrashers face-off event is tonight, yessir. Your Chronicle staff will be there, though I'm not sure if we'll be seeking autographs. It'll be interesting to see who gets the A's to complement the Czar's C. I figure we'll still have Armstrong and Kozlov as A's, though I wouldn't be against giving Ronald "OMG It's Ron Hainsey" Hainsey one as well. I mean, no one that handsome should be without A.
Speaking of Hainsey, I hope the world is ready for him on Saturday. Because we all know it's not a matter of whether Ron Hainsey is ready for action; it's a matter of whether action is ready for Ron Hainsey.
Oh hey, look at this press conference with John Anderson and Don Waddell, where they talk about things, at length.
There's also a season-opening media blitz underway, the venues of which are outlined by Ben Wright over at his place.
