I seem to keep whiffing on NHL pick 'em deadlines. Please mark me down for the Lightning in 6 and Vegas in 5.

Catching up on off-ice drama surrounding my Lightning, and I saw that some in the Hurricanes' fanbase were mad over how the Lightning were able to build their roster. The Lightning have been circumventing the salary cap all season long. The St. Louis Blues have been too, as have several other teams. However, not all cap circumvention is illegal. The LTIR has always been a way for teams to circumvent the salary cap.

Nevertheless, I am glad to see Nikita Kucherov skating again.

Earlier today, there was a brief window of time when residents of the former East Indies were gleefully watching the Dutch shit their pants and my nephew's Ukrainian wife was jumping for joy.

But that moment too hath passed.
