I know the truth...
Don't ask me how I know or why I know. I suspect Brendan Shanahan will be jumping through my front window any minute now holding a Mark XIX Desert Eagle and a warrant for my capture. Anything to silence THE TRUTH. It's fairly obvious when you think about it.
The NHL is about to expand to 32 teams.
Everyone loves expansion. Well, it will water...

Is that a head hit? Is it suspendable? Personally, I would think so.
But what does the NHL think? Was this a case...
Just have some random thoughts for you this morning. I'll be finishing up the semester at Buffalo State in the next week and a half, so I'll try to blog more and more as time goes. I've been trying to write something each day recently.

The verdict: No suspension or fine for Booth, who was given a minor for goalie interference. So...
