Saving Both Barrels For Captain Farrell

I've decided I don't like Marian Hossa.  I never blamed him for leaving Hockeytown for the starched collars and wine coolers of Chicago.  Well, I did because I'm me and I'm always looking for someone to blame for something.  But, I kind of understood it.  Our man with the plan Tick Tock made his choice and Gary wouldn't let us keep them both, so...it's...
