So, to this point BN has been very analytical in nature, which works great when I have the time. I don't. I just started a PhD program and now I'm finding I have little energy to throw together data and info to be truly introspective and smartypants. I still like having season previews and predictions, because it makes us feel good when we're right about Darrol Powe sucking (me) or riding the white horse into Flyers fans perversions (Forsberg, Weagz). Same could be said about Mike Comrie (Rankin's) or Lube Visnovsky (Cosby), but I digress.
The new format is a frenetic, once-a-week mishmash of goals, a couple players to watch because they either suck a bit or rock a lot, sarcasm, and an update of our individual predictions versus where things really stand. Since Rankin's usually come out Sunday, I'll probably be doing mine on a Wednesday or Thursday. When I have the time, I might throw in some random commentary or a deeper piece on something.
It's just popped into my head, so it's worth mentioning before I forget: Joe Thornton has a really tall face.
