    I plan to spend the time leading up to the NHL Awards, during the NHL awards and many days after them making fun of Jay Mohr.

    Funny, this morning I listened to the guys on the Fan argue about whether Matt Stajan will bounce back or if Feaster should dump him to a cap floor team along with a 2nd rounder. That team is seriously fucked.
