Found December 18, 2012 on The 6th Sens:
The Binghamton Senators revealed a promotion this afternoon that honours the Mayan prophecy that declares the dawning New World Age on December 21, 2012. *insert joke about Binghamton already resembling a hellscape* In tribute to the impending apocalypse – which Bingo fans can only assume means one of two things: 1) the NHL lockout will end, inadvertently ending any chance of Binghamton Calder Cup; or 2) that Robin Lehner and Ben Bishop will both catch whatever SARS-like flu virus is ravaging the rest of the roster -- "the organization announced that in the event that the world ends on Dec. 21, 2012 they will reimburse fans 100% of the cost of tickets purchased for the Saturday, Dec. 22 game scheduled to take place versus the Rochester Americans." Assuming that the world does actually come to an end on December 21st, here is how Senators history will be cemented: The Senators will have never beaten the Maple Leafs in a playoff series. Mika Zibanejad will go...

Richard Cloutier: Too Wrong Finland Thanks for Everything, Kyle Turris

Kyle Turris..."Blah blah blah,Hockey in Finland sucks...Blah blah blah, what do you have to do to find a Big Mac here?...Blah blah blah, the bus rides are worse here than back in Junior."

Travis Yost: On Kyle Turris and Evander Kane

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- (1) Kyle Turris' has had an interesting start to the holiday season. Turris had been playing -- and playing well -- with Karpat in SM-liiga, having scored seven goals and twelve assists in just twenty-one games. A month ago, Turris spoke candidly about the positive experience playing overseas was. Apparently, that changed in a hurry...

Bad Turris-t

Graeme had a note on this earlier today, but we have begun to enter the fun stage of this genre where the translation makes its way back to those who were slagged. For the unawares, yesterday in a Globe & Mail story, Turris went all Andre Petersson on SM-Liga transportation, Finnish truck-stop dining, and that country's pitiful lack of sunlight. I'm also pretty sure there...

Zibanejad And The World Junior Championships

The World Junior Championships begin on December 26th in Ufa, Russia.  They will be a stronger tournament that usual because players who would be in the NHL are available since they are locked out.  Except things are not quite that simple.  Even though the NHL is locked out, one team is preventing their player from participating in the tournament. Mika Zibanejad is Ottawa Senator...
