My Year in a Nutshell

Team Explanation
January 1: Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you all have a healthy, rewarding 2020! This is going to be a great year!!

March 31: Wiping my @$$ with coffee-machine filters.

Here's how I see training camp shaping up:

I think that a good idea would be putting Turcotte together with Vilardi and Carter because Carter can mentor both and still has a good turn of speed, and all three can take draws.

All the other combinations are familiar with each other, and I don't see any other forwards ready to make the big team out of camp.

I think they'll give Durzi and Hults a real look but start them out in Ontario. The first six defensemen should be those shown and the seventh will be either someone the Kings sign as a free agent or one of Bjornfot or Clague.

The Kings will also give whichever high-end forward they draft in the first round a long look, too. I really can't wait until the draft order this June is determined. If we get shut out of all of Byfield, Stuetzle, Raymond and Holtz, I'll be very disappointed.

Now the very coffee I just ran through one of those filters was spewed everywhere out of laughter. I'm absolutely dying of laughter! Tough situation, but man you just made my day

The only way we can overcome some of this insanity is to laugh at it. We will not be cowed.

Yes sir!!! Maybe people will appreciate their lives and jobs and freedom etc etc etc a little more after this! I know I was kinda burnt out on the politics at my job! Being off has made me realize I actually love the work I do, just not the nonsense that goes on above me! Hopefully a new perspective once I return to work!
