Road Trip to Raleigh
Eating and Meeting, all Satisfying
I just finished my second bbq pulled pork sandwich of the day, and once again I am utterly satisfied.  The locker rooms were open to those with proper credentials for a period of time--so I made a beeline for the Team Staal locker room. Ovie was sitting back with his arms crossed in his cubby, while Henrik Lundqvist prepared his sticks for the weekend's festivities.

Next, I ran into a brigade of team mascots, complete with full pads, sticks and skates. Mr. Bolt of the Lightning was very friendly and even took a picture with me. (Maybe he just wanted some publicity in the blog!)
Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
