- Well, the weekend was kind to the Thrashers, was it not? Glad to see we made it through October with a 5-4-1 record; I don't think it's out of the question for the team to have a better record than that in November. If our penalty kill stays solid and Pavelec can be consistent, it can be done.
- So I started re-reading my favorite novel yesterday, and it struck me just how closely the old Atlanta Spirit civil war (which we've hopefully seen the last of) resembles the endless, tortuous Jarndyce and Jarndyce case. The Spirit battle could've done with a lot more fog and picturesque crime though.
- No word yet on Kovalchuk. It's amazing just how many huge stars are out with injuries at the moment. Even more amazing is the fact that most of the NHLers on the Russian national team have gone down: Markov, Gonchar, Kovalchuk, Malkin, and now Ovechkin. Curious stuff. Is this coincidence or something more organized?
No sir, I have nothing to talk about. Not until a winner is chosen in the screenplay poll, that is. So I'll turn the floor over to our beloved readers: just what are we supposed to take away from this past month? What are you expecting during the packed schedule of November?
