Mattias Ohlund was suspended by the NHL for four games, according to TSN. This is because he decided that it would be a good idea to chop Mikko Koivu in the knee with his stick, knocking him out for 1-2 weeks. That's what you get for being a jerk and breaking the Wild's best player, not to mention the best player on my fantasy team of late.
In other news, the Wild are back on top of the division, and third in the Western Conference. They play the Canucks on Wednesday while I'm en route to Seattle. I'm hoping they will be looking to avenge that 6-2 loss that I'm pretending didn't happen last week. I'm sure my friend Tim will have many opinions on the subject, none of which I care to hear until after my boys crush the Canucks into little, tiny, plankton sized pieces. Word on the street is that the Canucks have called up some talentless thug who fights a lot and sent down a player with actual skills in preparation for Wednesday's game. Gee, I wonder why that might be? Maybe because they are a bunch of cheap shotting douchebags most of the time. Granted they are not the team they once were in terms of jerks, but they still have plenty apparently. I predict the Wild will win and shed some orca blood along the way.
CFL: BOMBERS vs. Riders Grey Cup Final!!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Go Bombers Go! I know Teebz of Hockey Blog in Canada will be joining me in cheering, will you?
Finally: Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends, and happy November 22nd to all my Canadian friends! Peace out, Wednesday I'm off to the even rainer parts of the Pacific Northwest for the weekend and I don't know if I'll get another post in for a few days.
